Was Yakov really obligated to got such lengths to guard Lavan's flocks?


Bava Netzi'a, 93b: 'How far is a Shomer Sachar (somone who guards for payment) obligated to guard? To the point of 'I was consumed by the heat in the day and by frost in the night!' 1


See Torah Temimah, note 7 who elaborates.


Why did Yakov say "va'Yom Achalani Chorev... va'Tidar Shenasi me'Einai"?


Tosfos ha'Shalem (1,2): I did not sleep normally, nor take refuge from the sun in cracks in rocks, like other Shomerim. How could you suspect me of theft?!
