May have to quit the bartending gig... it's just too hard to close the bar at 2am and be to the new job for 5... I basically go home, wash off my makeup change clothes and head out. lol

Probably a good idea, a little extra money isn't worth being exhausted all the time....all depends on what you want

The good thing about working 20 hour days is that you never have time to spend any money. It really helps the budget...if you survive.

The last time I was in Chicago for a Cubs v Brewers series, it was early june & we stayed at a state park on the lake in an RV. It got down to 32° at night! I thought I'd freeze to death!!

My grandma lived on W. Montrose about a block away from Lincoln. I've spent tons of time in Chicago, I was actually even born there :-) We moved before I was one though, so I don't remember living there.

True story... sometime in the 80s my grandma took a bus to the loop and realized that Ernie Banks was the driver!! My dad has been obsessed with him since he was a kid so grandma got him to sign every Cubs thing she could find and sent it all to my

:-) I used to eat breakfast with my grandpa every morning at the Lincoln Diner on the corner. Steak and Eggs. Pretty sure it's still there, or was 4ish years ago. I really miss my grandparents. But I guess everyone feels that way.

I asked why he came back, the guy's a millionaire. he said "I've worked 12 hours a day 7 days a week for 30 years..... what am I do without that?" he has a point

lol yeah I've pretty much always worked 10 or 12 hrs a day, especially when we were crabbing. But this 20 hrs a day $hit is excessive. Especially considering that I spend at least an hour driving out of my 4 hrs off. lol Cut back the bartending gig

so I only have 2 20 hr days now and that is still too many. And it's taking me a minute to get used to working in this heat again. Crabbing was miserable like this too, but at least I was my own boss.

if your job requires a cdl....legally you can't work that other job. those hours count against your HOS.

I know, it just seems so wrong for the federal government to tell us how many hours we can work. you can thank those vile labor unions for that.

4f2296c5af7fa46de0b9954997a11412

But yeah, I can see why. I guess I really do have to quit the bartending gig or just work on days off.

Repeal the "Patriot" Act!™ @ over 4 years ago

4f2296c5af7fa46de0b9954997a11412

But not cuz I'm scared of their stupid laws. I generally ignore bull$it laws. lol

Repeal the "Patriot" Act!™ @ over 4 years ago

B63b734d9476a55ed0025f2d37803146

again, by law you're required to notify your employer and log those hours. I know, it's plumb retarded. unfortunately in my position I'm forced to make my drivers comply with those laws.

if something were to happen in the road, say someone crosses the centerline and hits you. if their lawyers (and there are thousands of the scuzzbags) can prove you weren't entirely legal, you'd end up doing prison time.
