I don't know what it is, maybe the 100 degree temps in the mill or just stress from my life or job related stresses but I haven't been as productive as in the past. I'm working a lot of O.T. trying to make some extra money for a gun purchase and I think after I get to my goal I might take a week off. I need it.

Paper mill, we do converting for flexible packaging. I run a printing press and today it was 102 with high humidity.

ETA: My press is like the sweaty ass crack of the mill. I have fans that I put around to circulate the air but if you stand in front of them it feels like a giant blow drier, nothing but hot air.

YES, been sick of it, I have worked in food service for thirteen years so it's damn-near impossible to get any real job. It sucks, the pay is terrible, my boss is a bastard, customers will be the death of me, and there are no job openings in my neck of the woods that might potentially pay a real wage (making due on 10k a year after recently leaving a 51k a year job is hard).

I was getting burned out, but that got solved, I was told I was going to be losing my job. So, now, I only have to find a new one, and that is not going real well at the moment.

Hmm, sounds interesting. I think I'm going to allow my flexographic and lithographic printing experience to accumulate a few more years (9 years this year) and get a position as shift supervisor or quality control where ever they print Hustler magazines.

I love my job. When I worked strictly ICU stuff I got a little toasty after about 5 years. I work in a childrens hospital and seeing that kind of pain/suffering and death can get old quick. What I do now is much better (critical care peds/newborn transport) and only every now and then work the ICU's. My job involves ambulance/helicopter/fixed wing transport and is cool and exciting. It also allows me plenty of time to surf the web if it aint busy.

Yes, but I will never stop, no matter how hard it becomes, no matter the hardships.

Others here, are holding far more dangerous ground, and have it far worse than me. If I quit, I let them down.

When you make a delivery to a Business called Fantasy Gifts and see what is inside the place, you figure it out.

Yup, I've been shoeing horses for 20 yrs now and after a broken leg and broken rib I'm ready for something less risky.

I'm planning on starting college next spring and going into a medical career.

After wrestling with horses for 20 yrs, wild patients should be a breeze.

I get burned out every six months or so. Usually going to some sort of in-service training school breaks the slump.
The military side of my employment is absolutely getting "old". Luckily I'm only a year or so out from retiring from that job.

Fried here.

Vacation got nulled because of changes in staffing, shortage of staffing, and an Illegal policy that consumes earned benefit time when Medical leave is taken.

Filling in as an ad Hoc exec. that has not been hired for Months is Old.

Getting stabbed by the Boss and the Union, because of a lack of management talent, and corporate support, is old.

60+Hour weeks? Since 9-11-01?
Old.

Getting to see the wife for 4 days a month?
Old.

Lies, empty promises, and demands for increased support without the tools,in the face of it all?

Yep. Old.

Fried.

Been looking elsewhere.
First job that pays 5 bucks less an hour wins.

Between time on the farm that will pay more, and fewer Beers required on days off, it is a wash.

And I get to spend time with friends and family.

I work for Idiots, and I'm done.

At that rate you're better off taking Metro. It'd take awhile but at least you can sorta relax.

But yeah, 495, 270, and 66 are the highways of tears and pain..

There's a limit to what the human body can take in that environment. Your body core temperature is probably running a degree or two high all the time. You are running a constant fever and asking what is wrong?

Fucking stay cool. Hydrate yourself. 3 parts water, 1 part sports drink of your choice. Don't wait 'til you are thirsty to drink- force fluids every hour. If you know you're going to lose massive amounts of body fluids ahead of time prepare for it.

If there are showers in the plant, stand in one at every break with the water set on "cool" and then work it down. If you ain't got time to take a proper one and there's no risk of electricution, shower in you're clothes! Sounds like you'll dry off rather quickly. We ain't ain't talking about fighting hypothermia here....



I think you would be fine if you quite cooking yourself.
