    Your dad needs to pay you OT, or you should start a union and go on strike against your parent(s), as seen on countless sitcoms through the years.

    Well to be fair it was desk work and not refinery work. 7/12s are brutal when working any length of time on that sched.

    At least you can have a pint at work. I would get canned for that (or at least sent to rehab). It was such a nice day today, though, that I left at 2. I made $150 drinking beer and downloading pron at home until my regular quitting time.

    Yeah but my dad gets pissed when we drink and try to operate machining equipment. Someone is going to lose a finger one day.

    Whatever you do, just don't turn the damn thing on with the chuck key attached!

    Or wear a loose shirt around it.

    Gad the horrible pictures cannot be erased from my mind.

    Eeep! It's one thing to have an accident at home, but at work, the various governing bodies will come down on you like a ton of bricks - on the company too - especially if an empty beer bottle is found.

    Back in my youth, bong hits and pints were part of the work day at some jobs I held (hell, even in my 30s while taking a lengthy break from my past and current career), but the world has changed, unfortunately. I miss those days. Oh well, I'm due to retire with a full pension in about 9 years. My wife is half my age, so she can work and I'll ride my bikes and play my guitars and life will be good again.

    i worked at a factory making slack adjusters for airbrakes many years ago. 12 hour days, 7 days a week. saw many a finger disappear and one guy lose his arm around an industrial drill press. there was much drinking at that place. and coke too...it was nuts.

    Back when I made copies, sometimes we'd get a huge job in with a tight turn time, I'd work 20+ hrs in a day and sometimes I'd accidently make copies of my hand

    That's quite a feat seeing as how there are only 24 hours in a day.

    I got screwed with getting a job today. Hate when that happens.

    Except that when you work as long of a "day" as I regularly did, you forget how long you have been awake because by the 36-48th hour, you are so amped up on caffine and stress that you could care less when the last time you got sleep was.

    It was the 30 minute drive home that was killer. No stress and lots of open highways meant a really boring and potentially hazardous drive home.

    But you are right, there is only 24 hours in a day

    I worked at a big hotel during Christmas time. I was the supervisor in charge of setting up and taking down all the tables and stages and junk for all the big parties. I didn't go home for a few days straight. I did get to sleep for an hour or so at a time (on the clock), so that was nice.
