Making some chili tonight. Let the three day weekend begin!

Psshhh... 3 day weekend... Must be nice. I'll be at work all weekend, just like I've been all week. 

On the plus side, I'm getting 24 hrs of overtime and 12 hrs of triple time this weekend.

Exactly. You're being a hard working employee while I'm being a typical government employee (kind of). You are making dolla bills hombre.

Definitely making good money this weekend. My hourly rate is already pretty high on straight time, and this weekend will be nice for sure. Wife and kids will be busy anyway, so I figured I'd cover the shifts for the guy that wanted the weekend off. And it's graveyards, which is an extra $1.50/hr, which doesn't seem like much, but on OT and 3T it adds up pretty fast lol.

And enjoy that government schedule, my man. We get a lot of holidays, but I imagine you guys get more. And you guys actually get them off, while we still have to work (but get paid). I'm actually in one of the only positions in the company that has to be here 24/7/365. Nights, weekends, holidays, all of it. They do compensate us pretty nicely though lol.

Yikes. Wouldn't be too keen on that. And yeah we get an insane amount of holidays. We even get off for Columbus day haha.

What do y’all do for a living? I’m finally graduating with my bachelors in May 

I'm a government contractor, I'm a financial analyst and support the Coast Guard. It's pretty cool but the building I work at is just horrible to get to.

Small(ish) world! Former financial analyst myself, then military >.gov contractor but as a meteorological technician (weatherdude). Now a high school special ed teacher (English, Gov't/Econ). Have had several other careers, too. And, yes, I have a short attention sp - Oh, look, squirrel! ;)

You all have interesting jobs. Im jealous.

I have been working groundskeeping or housekeeping for 3 and half years now. Super mundane stuff but the pay is good and I get weekends off so I'm happy.

I need to do something interesting or i get realll grumpy. My idea is to work for an airline or a major hotel so i get some kind of cool perk.

I am what is commonly referred to as a Pit Boss at a local casino. I am currently going back to school online to get 30 credits worth of Accounting courses to pair with my Bachelors in Pure Mathematics to sit and take the CPA exams in either Ohio or Kentucky.
