Well first off..while all you guys were drinking yesterday, I worked a 12 hour shift in the crappy cold 20 degree / 10 inches of snow weather ! Ok, so much for the feeling sorry for myself thing..I hope to make up for that today....Its 5 o'clock somewhere...

I went to Buffet's place in New Orleans a few years back...was there during the morning hours and had a great time...nice people and comfortable atmosphere..We're early risers, so we were usually in the bars by 7:00am. 2 for one at that hour and usually 3 for one after 10:00am...gotta love a town that the bars are open 24/7. I LOVE NEW ORLEANS !!!!

John,

I remember years ago, when we would get off midnight shift at 8am, our guys and some guys from the neighboring city used to meet at the bar after shift. Stay there until 2 or 3 in the afternoon go home, sleep and be back to work at midnight....those were the days.

Before we went to 12's, I worked 4p to 12a. Many a night / early morning was spent with my platoon in that very same manner !

For most of my career, before I started moving up, I worked either midnights or 8p-4a, some afternoons. 4-12's are not conducive to happy marital life as my attorney bills could testify to many years ago.

I couldn't agree more..it was definatly a good shift to work..always something going on...and no sence going home at midnight..hell, everyones going to be sleeping anyway..lol

But as much as I hate to admit it, it did get old after a while..I think it would have been different if I was single.. I love days and working the 12 hour shifts give me tons of time off...to sit in front of this idiot box and drink...!

5 days one week...two days the next week...every other weekend is a 3 day (fri, sat, sun)...Gotta love it ! And to sweeten it even more, dept wont pay for those 4 extra hours, so 1 day a week is a 10 hour day...
