I would go insane. 40 hours is all I ever want to work in a week.

Since we're ranting, our A/C at work was busted today, so I had to work in a room where the thermostat read 84F all frakking day. Not fun.

Well, my incompetent construction crew broke the sensor for the AC in half the store sometime last week - and it's only supposed to be 92 today here in Arizona. I just know that my drugs won't take that kind of temp for long (as they're all supposed to be stored at 'room temperature' - and that's most definitely not it).

well, if they're going to be a loss anyways you might as well start handing them out on the street corner  icon_wink

no sense in letting good drugs go to waste.

I'm currently on day nine, looking at a minimum of three more, possibly even more than that depending on how this next code delivery goes.

I'm at the start of a three-week period of 56 hours over six days with Sundays off.  Fortunately/unfortunately, I got sick on Saturday night, so took yesterday off, so this week is technically only five days for me.  This cycle may or may not repeat going into May, depending on how things are looking with the project.  Fortunately, I'm hourly, which means sweet, sweet OT checks.

Ahh I'm looking forward to 40 hr weeks,  I've been on 12hr days/6 days a week (plus a couple of times worked my one day off) since early January.  8 hours days are going to seem like a breeze.

Having worked 60 to 70-hour work weeks while attending college full-time, and "serving" two years working 12 to 16-hour shifts 7-days a week during a two-year break from college at a paper mill, on average I'll put in about 10 or so hours each day at my current company and a typical work week for me usually tops out around 50 hours.  Sometimes I'll have a rough week and might break 60 or so hours, but for the most part I'm right around 45 to 50 hours.  And my prior workloads have really helped me to appreciate how nice working a regular 5-day work week can be. 

I don't envy anyone with irregular shift hours as I value my personal time and a regular work schedule allows for some level of consistency in enjoying free time.  And while consulting can sometimes require working above and beyond normal salary expectations, especially in a management position, it doesn't happen often enough to make me dislike my current position.  Even though I'm a salary employee, I don't feel I am under-compensated and for every 12 to 14-hour day I may have to sacrifice, come Friday at 4pm you'll never find me at my desk.  I'm already at the local pool hall enjoying a cold beer.

I had the last 6 days off, but for all the wrong reasons...

Today is my first day back, and for the first time, I was excited to be back to normal.

I unfortunately and routinely reminded that to my boss, salary means I am his bitch and I will work as many hours as he wants me to, which usually works out to well over 60 a week.
