    I'm pulling 12's assuming my relief shows up on time. Working on new years is a good excuse to make $ vs spending it. Just happy to work for a company who componsates for working holidays. Come to think of it just glad to be working.

    I'm glad to have a decent job.....but the company I work for doesn't compensate for working the holidays. Sucks. Oh well.

    Worked friday 7pm-7am.. working now same hours.. work tomorrow same hours. :(

    HOPING someone comes in to let me go home at 7am. We had a guy call in "sick" for the past 2 weeks. They couldn't find anyone to come in today... one of our "supervisors" was told if he can't find someone to work it that he will work it. This supervisor is pretty lazy....
    I will be PISSED if i'm forced to work a 24 hour shift without notice. I have a horse, a dog, and 2 cats at home needing fed and let out (well horse is out.. cats stay in.. dog needs out.)
