    Man I wish I could feel for ya Don. My dad can though, that's about how much he's been working lately too, then again he did show up at the reunion in his Verizon van during his lunch break.

    7 days thats not long dontoe!!! j/k The most I have ever pulled was 27 straight at a fire station. That means no going home. Currently I am on day 3 of 10. Atleast you get to go home. I would give anything to go home to see my wife and daughter.

    Man, sorry to hear that.
    I hate working and not being 100%.
    It's bad enough as it is!


    Day off?
    I'm lucky in that Lynda usually lets me kick back if I don't have anything critical that needs attention.........:D
