As soon as I opened my Email at work today it was non-stop and the phones just wouldn't stop ringing. TGIF, but it is going to be a short weekend. I have a meeting to attend on Sunday.


How about the rest of you guys?

At least I will get some shooting in tomorrow.

Customer wants what takes 150 days done in 90, so everyone is going nuts around here lately. Worked 43 hours of overtime in the last two weeks, thank God I get paid by the hour! (I'm an engineering intern) Can't wait to come in on Sunday! :(

At least I get to hit some jeep trails with my Tundra tomorrow

7 days on........7 days off. I'm on day 5 of my weekend.

I work in IT. Normally the my customers like to use Friday for a long weekend. Today was not the case and all of my customers had all sorts of "life changing" problems. A few ice cold adult beverages are in order tonight :)

I don't work on Fridays for religious reasons.

Oh well...I spent today taking vacation after getting a colonoscopy yesterday. Nothing like an anesthetic hangover and a hurting ass to make your day!

Had 4 large orders to ship today and I didn't want my guys wasting time on them because we've had an awesome July and work has piled up. So, i decided to pack most of it up and half way through I dropped a pallet on top of my left foot. It still hurts like hell, swollen and turning purple. Will be interesting to see if I can walk on it tomorrow.

So, yeah I had one of those days.

Meh. It was an ok day. I took the day off to go see a friend that's terminally ill with Lou Gehrig's disease.

I got to leave at lunch to go to the dentist for a cleaning. Had a cute little Asian dental hygienist. Afterwards, I had a friend pick me up and we went to the best gun store in town(great service & selection but slightly higher prices). Bought some Break-Free CLP and 60 rounds of Hornady 185 gr JHP/XTP and 100 rounds of 147 gr Ranger SXT 9mm.

Wait until you aren't an intern and they have you on salary.

My first job out of school (ComSci) went from 55 hrs/wk to 60 hrs/wk to 70 hrs/wk to 80 hrs/wk. I lasted 13 months at that place.

All said and done, I made about the same as the guy at McD's flipping my burgers.

Used a 60-ton crane, a new Holland skid steer, torches, gas-saws, chainsaws and other tools to take down and fully dismantle a large & raised two-tower chiller - and its surrounding protective cage - on the top of a hospital roof (in the blazing south Florida sun) this week. Got it done without getting anyone killed or hurt, and didn't catch the whole thing on fire (unlike, according to the crane-operator who was at another location, the Haitians who did a similar chiller last week... big fire on that roof).

My shoulder and neck muscles are knotted up and painful from all of the tool-use and climbing. I'm sun-burned and beat up. My wrists wake me up at night to tell me how painful they are from pulling on things & workin' 'em.

I came home covered in 30+ years of pigeon shit most days this week.

Having a phone ring all day and e-mails to answer seems like a pretty nice job to have. Don't know why I gave it up.

Lol...did your job involve driving 3 hours?

Decent day at work today. We had a wind blowing off the Gulf of Mexico for part of the day, so it wasn't insanely hot. We had tomato gravy with biscuits for breakfast, then sub sandwiches from Lenny's for lunch. The company's actually springing for our meals during this shutdown, day and night. And the best part, I'm on vacation for seven days starting tomorrow!

Drove four hours today from Bedford, VA. to Williamsburg, VA. Spent one hour abandoning an old 400' water well, and drove back. The perfect Friday. Away from the shop, away from the owners, away from the fucked up drill rigs that need new o-rings from front to back.

My motorcycle broke down and I had to find a ride to my truck in order to pick it up and take it home.

I sweated my ass off and waited in a parking lot for 4 hours.


It was one of those days.

Just another day trying to unravel the red tape of a bloated bureaucracy. Today I removed about an inch from a mile of bullshit. If it weren't Friday I would cry!

No, mine actually went pretty well for a change. Most days at work are more of a clusterfuck.

Mine went slow and boring, watching the clock tick(and surfing ARFcom ), until 15min before my shift end. I had even already partially changed out of my uniform, and I got a service call.
Had to change back into uniform and ended up working an hour overtime to finish the project.

I'm a CS major also. My first two employers were notorious about underbidding the schedule and manhours on projects, which meant us salaried folks got to make it up with 50-60 hour weeks at no cost to the company. People tended to not last long at those places.

We tried that, but our Louisiana affiliates felt left out.
