My standard work rota is 12 shifts (162 hours) every four weeks. It rarely works out that way though as I volunteer to cover holidays more than the other two guys do.
They don't have the upkeep on an Omega to pay for though. In fact one of them drives a Micra, has never been married and runs a mile from overtime.
I think theres a moral in this story, somewhere.  ::) ;D

I'm like your Micra mate, although I often end up working a lot, lot more than I'm paid for, I really ain't interested in OT.

Work was starting to get a bit much so I booked a couple of days off to have a long weekend, yesterday and today. What happened? My boss called me.. "I know you're on holiday, but..."  ::) ::)

I took yesterday and today off as well :y

I turned off my works mobile, not that my boss knows the number ::), and only my immediate, trusted colleagues know my personal mobile and home numbers ;D

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

I work with a person who went to Dubai whilst suspended and argued, successfully, that he was being harassed when they tried to call him in for a disciplinary hearing... even though our contracts clearly state that if suspended you are expected to remain available during your rostered shift/hours >:(

He should have been sacked before his probation ended, yet two years later and he is basically untouchable. Even Airfield Ops have had to return his ADP even though the three offences he committed would normally cost you your ID :-X
