Currently on night 29 of what will be about 40 straight 12-14 hour night shifts in a row. Sounds like I'll get a 40 hour week at the end of this stretch , then back to the same night schedule for the 35 following nights. Frankly need the money and as long as I can stay healthy , it isn't too bad of a deal.
damn Css thats some work schedule
....just dont burn out.....when i worked for royal mail i was doing double shifts alot....ended up burning out and leaving....i loved that job but health is too improtant
I like what i do and the people I work with or it would be impossible that's for sure. Seemed like it was easier 15 years ago though
Luckily, I've moved out of the positions that are extremely physically intense, I doubt I could hack it at age 50. I remember an 8 day stretch about 12 years ago where I had nearly 140 hours - looking back I'd say that was pretty silly of me .
I do miss being in really good shape , around that time my mother in law built a new house and we moved all of her belongings for her. I remember walking over to the piano , grabbing one end and walking out the door and down the steps with it while my 2 brothers in law struggled to handle the other end lol. Now days I walk past that piano and it mocks me..... " Bet you couldn't now old man!" lol
