If they're demanding 16 hours and you don't want to work 16 hours, get the hell out. Otherwise knock off at 5pm "time to go boss, my pet goldfish needs me. See you 9am tomorrow". They obviously did something before you started. Worst case they fire you instead of you quitting - best case they respect you more. Either way, you're doing better work than if you're putting in consistent 16 hour days.

If your boss can't parse CSV files, presumably (s)he has some other skills - find out what they are and learn them.

You're supposed to be working together right? So go teach your boss how to parse CSV files (nicely).
