I have been working from 7am to 7pm all this week on this M77 job. I am totally knackered. AWG (our customer) are evil.

    Quite a bit, actually. Thank goodness. Because we have lots of little bits to do all around the site instead of just the one big monotonous job, the day is broken up into manageable chunks.

    Just be glad that you don't take your work home with you. I once did a 12 hour plus day, then to have a client call me up at home 2 hours later. :mad:

    Try 7.30am - 10.00pm, with only 50mins Authorised break.

    I'd be dead if I hadn't taken bout 1½hr worth of unauthorised breaks :)
