Here I am again still at work because everyone else in my work section are dumb asses that can't be counted on.

Right now I'm sitting at hour 20, I wonder how much longer they are going to make me stay. Oooo and no I don't get over time, I'm in the military.


Anyways what's the longest you have work straight without sleep? My record is 46 hours before they let me go home.

Did some 16-18 hours a day when under the gun trying to meet the schedule on a theater renovation. The show must go on.

Done a 6:30am till about 5pm the following day. Got hungry around 10pm and ordered a pizza, it was kind of a working lunch. Hated being in management and understaffed but my inventory results rocked!

sometimes it just makes time go by easier when you're doing stuff. wheni was deployed there was a number of times wheni was working 2 days straight, just found stuff to work on. then there were the times were we had no choice in the matter (casualties coming in).

This winter I worked for like three days straight, like 47 hours. I work at Detroit metro and was deicing aircraft and had to stay there and deice planes over night it sucked but the check was sweet.

I have to do a lot of traveling with my job, The worst I remember was 28 hours of driving to and from South Carolina plus 10 hours in a steel plant at 110°F in mid summer in less than 48 hours. Therre was a hotel involved but I can't sleep in those places.

My longest shifts were military of course. but my brother works onsite field engineering on oil rigs in the gulf of mexico and he regularly goes 50+ hours with only 20-30 minute naps every so often. Hell I have enough trouble staying awake for 6 hours. :)

I was in the military, I remember going 3 days straight without sleep once when our ship broke its mooring in bad weather. It was a mess....we had a sub along side the ship and it was pinned between the barge next to the ship and the ship. After the weather finally died down, which took a long time...we had to clean up the mess. Good times!

16 and 18 hour shifts covering for co-workers who do not show up. You military guys work some crazy hours, but thank you for your hard work.
