Pulled twelves a couple of time driving truck. Wasn't so bad, but past twelve is where you really start to feel it, and I sure was beat when I got home.

Suuuuuure you didn't. And the hair that started growing on your palms was just a coincidence too, right?

I did a 35 right before Christmas time once working on a construction site. I was alone at night. I'm sure I lost a slight chunk of sanity doing that. Towards the end, I was sometimes chanting and rarely screaming (I was alone of course) "I gotta get the fuck outta here" "I GOTTA get the FUCK outta here!"

The most challenging part proved to be driving home.

I remember when I was in college and working Summers, pulling several back to back 16 hour days of standing on concrete warehouse floors doing quality control inspection of products. Now that sucked! By the end of the day your feet would hurt so friggin bad you'd swear your toenails had fallen off. I'm sure anyone who has spent any amount of time standing on concrete all day will know just what I'm talking about.

Its true that you'll get hairy palms, cause if that was true Id have hairy arms.

Palms, arms, chest, face, back, ass, feet.. If my pigment was darker, I could pass for a gorilla.

All of my jobs I have never built anything. One day I would like a job where I can build something

My worst shift (installing networking equipement / running cables) was about 30 hours...and I didnt have the opportunity to surf ARFCOM while doing it!

On a side note, about a 20 hours into it, I decided it would be a good idea to get a caffeine fix....so I went to a local coffee house, ordered 8 espresso shots (4 doubles actually)...asked the guy to dump them all into a regular size coffee cup...and then i chugged the thing right in front of the guy, paid, and went back to work....DONT DO THIS - IT ALMOST BLEW MY FKN HEART UP!!!

I got so jacked up I could barely use tools....got me through 8 hours buzzing hard...then crashed big time....I cut myself off at 4 shots now - that is enough to do the job.

I did 20 hours last week, array went out on our users file server. Had to rebuild it then restore 200Gb from tape.

This is after four days of disrupted sleep anyway. I was ready to snap the next day.

Thats not true, the crack whore that hangs out in front of BlockBuster told me she thought you were the cats pajamas.



I stopped going to that one, I go to one further in town, longer drive but the lower priced crackwhores make up for it

Pansies. I did 72 hours straight once (2 jobs + school). It wasnt particularly difficult work but i had to be awake the whole time and standing for about half of it. By the end i was having mild hallucinations and a strong desire to kill EVERYONE (and i mean everyone as in the whole world). To this day i have no memory of actually driving home.

I know the feeling. I worked 65+ hours a week at work for 3 years, Then we upgraded teh server and it reduced it to 40-45.

but the last couple of weeks it's been climbing again.


Btw it 2nd/graveyard. I'm the only person there. arfcom is my sanity gauge.
