    do you mean he said i live to work not i work to live? I think you said it backwards, that or 4/20 is getting to me haha. But during school months, depending on how much my boss likes me that week anywhere from 12-25 hours during the weekdays. But over the summer if I am doing roofing and construction I will work a solid 50-60 hours a week, but I get paid daily for that not hourly lol

    I was watching a reality TV show a while back and the person asked what this girls profession was. The girl proudly replied "I am a barista." There was a pause from the man followed by "So you make coffee ?" I was dying.

    I love fish!!!!!

    But if I was laying on the bench, blood pressure 200, and while taking a deep breath before lowering the weight for my last rep, I fill my nostrils with a mixed odor of Seabass, and fried Catfish.....I wonder what I would do to that guy who just walked by.......Im not a violent person, but still, I wonder what I would do.....That energy and bloodpressure would have to be dispersed somehow....hmmm.
    Take that shower kalspic....

    haha, i workout in the mornings. but i call it the birth control station. i know i wont be getting anything when i get off work.

    it also lets me lower my standards. i can get with the dirty girls and not know if its me or her that smells


    yea front of the house have it alright. you make way more money than we do and work less hours, but you get to deal with people so i call it a fair trade.

    I call Flight Attendants Baristas -- mostly because it is a temporary job for a bunch of them. I called one a Stewardess a year ago and almost was slapped. It was a dude.

    I am working mostly about 25 hours/week next month but if you count the hours I am traveling during those work hours, I'm up around 70/week.

    Ah...dude, I wish. And the whole traveling public wish.
    But the pay and benefits are so good they are all making a career out of it.
    Thats why we have the old, worn out, sour hogs walking up the aisles, making u feel they are doing u a favor serving u a cup of coffee.

    The age of the young pretty girls in tight uniforms are long gone.
    A few Asian airlines still got it right. They have a max 5 years in service for Flight Attendants, and a max age of 29.
    Needless to say, service is impeccable.

    Virgin Atlantic has got it right..

    how many hours a week do you guys work?-virginamerica_stewardess8.jpg

    in afghanistan, it's hard to say, since i really don't get time off. I'm either in the office (preferable) or in my room. So it's pretty non stop.

    Back home, I typically work 60 hours a week. I've had jobs that regularly had me bustin for 100+ hours a week. Not that i'm counting or anything....

    i couldnt imagine working 90-100 hours a week. my sanity and life would be gone. and just thinking if you had a family, what that would do to it. im all for hard work but i mean thats just a rediculous amount of hours. but i just got paid today and about sh!t my pants when i saw how much i made lol.

    the responsible part of me wants to save it, but im about to be 21 so spending it is getting more tempting and sounds logical right now

    I clock or am at work 40 hrs a week more or less. I work maybe 10 hrs a week, more or less, usually less. I also get 160 hrs vacation a year and 60 hrs sick leave. Speaking of, now that I have 90 hrs saved up I need to take a couple of weeks off soon.

    Stop working, head over to the social service office to get your share of the Oil wealth, and join the rest of the social service clients at the cafs downtown.

    ok, well easter is our busiest holiday of the year and we are very understaffed. so saturday i went in at 11:30am and got off at 2am then turned around and went back in at 7:15am and got off around 10:45pm. my feet are sore. that equals out to be around 30 hours in the past 2 days.

    I work 50-60 hours per week at odd hours which sucks but the pay is good. I should be in the six figure area this year. The job is fine but the people in charge (supposedly) are so unorganized that the workers have to figure out the existing problems we have everyday and tell the supervisers what will work. They always take credit for it and then thank us for saving their butts. I usually lift at 2am nobody in the gym it's great.

    I may work alot of hours but I must mention that the 8 weeks of paid vacation,9 paid sick days, and great medical benefits make it worthwhile.
