can't say I've got that problem... I usually have 10-12 hours of stuff to do in an 8 hour day.

Are you a civilian or in the military? If you are in the military then all I expect is 2 hrs of work a day, since you should work the same as you get paid, VERY LITTLE. I have to say that when I was in Kuwait in '01 I was lucky to get 2hrs of sleep a day, TOTAL.

I was the Commo guy plus the Armour. I was too good at my Commo job, I could diagnosis the radios without even looking at them.

Scouts - "The radio don't work."
Me - "What does it do?"
Scouts - "It blah blah blah..."
Me - "Here, this will fix it, go put it on and bring me the broken one."

I was CHILLING...for the first 3 wks. Then I got selected to be the Armour and the HELL BEGAN! We had convoys go ouevery hour on the hour...and they needed to draw weapons 20 min prior. So EVERY HOUR, 24hrs a day, I had to open the Arms Room and issue weapons and ammo. That takes 5-10 min total...but then the convoys get back at random times, so then I had to open the Arms Room back up and sign in their weapons and ammo. No, they wouldn't wait for the next out-going convoy, they wanted to goto the PX or to the movie theatre, etc. And then to further **** me up, they would turn-in their weapons TWICE when they returned. The first group would turn-in, then the group who had to stay and clean he vehicles out and/or turn in the Secure Comms would come in 10 min later. Do that for 5months. I started sleeping with my shoes on, cause that was 10 more seconds I could sleep. I had a guy ask me who I had gotten in a fight with, cause I had two of the biggest black eyes he had ever seen. My response, "Don't sleep for 3 wks."

Oh yeah, I am at work, too. I can't feel guilty about "not working" anymore. I have paid the price.

Army, 96B.

The pay isn't too bad relative to what I made as a tire tech before joining, it's actually about double. But relative to what I can make with my experience and clearance working for a civilian firm..

You actually do that stuff? I bombed a chemistry test today because I forgot my calculator and made the mistake of trying to do the calculations on paper. I don't think I've passed an exam yet, but thats college baby

I don't work (bagboy in highschool), but i always talked to the produce guy back in produce so they thought i was cleaning toilets or sumthin

Just finished my Calculus II HW about 5 minutes ago. I just don't understand 'area enclosed by the curves' I swear they teach about twice as fast as I can learn. Looking forward to 'takin it next semester... and I know Why... '
