Default What's your work schedule like?

Just wondering, cause I am bored at work.... what are the longest hours you have ever put in at work?

Back 2 years ago, we did MANDATORY 10 hour days for about 4 or 5 months... There was a strike for a week, and we had a large portion of the company on the picket line... at that time, I did seven 12 hour days in a row....

Fast-forward... to present time... I now work the best schedule ever.... Friday-Monday 13:00 - 00:00. No more waking up early, and the 3rd shift has ALOT more OT available than the regular 1st shift hours....

On the 10th, I had a 13 hour day....
On the 13th, I had a 13 hour day....
On the 17th, I had an 18.5 hour day.... started at 10:00 for short training, and stayed until 05:30 the following morning...!!
On the 18th, my internal clock got messed up, and I arrived to work an hour early without realizing it, so I did an 11 hour day.
On the 20th I had an 11 hour day
On the 24th I had an 14 hour day... stayed till 3am, no lunch break...

This is in addition to the 15-17 hours I work on 2 of my 3 "off" days at a part time job... I am starting to think I work too much.... And the funniest part (well, not for me) is that I am STILL broke... I need to cut my lady off from the money... lol... she spends it almost faster than I make it).
