Retired now

Used to be the transportation and warehousing manager for a string of newspapers in SW Fl for 14 years, would regularly work 80+ hour weeks, that job put me in the hospital 3 times for exhaustion, I didn't miss it at all when I finally walked out..

I usually get 52 hours a week in five days. Guaranteed minimum of 40/week. I can't complain. Three years ago I was cut to 32/week and couldn't make a living on that.

I worked plenty of long hours when I was younger, but wouldn't do it again, it isn't worth it to be angry all the time. We once worked seven weeks straight scheduled for 12 hour days, but if we had a break down or repairs I was one of the few who stayed to work on things. Many days we would stay until 10:30 pm and come back in at 5 am to try to finish the repair before the 7:00 start time. I paid off a BroncoII I bought that year in one summer since I couldn't go anywhere.

With my gravel pit and the range I can put in 120 per week for several weeks in a row then sit and twiddle my thumbs for weeks at a time.

After my return from the Corps I worked 15 years for Western Electric and averaged 400 hours of overtime per year, that allowed me to buy the farm with he gravel pit and pay a lot of taxes! I missed 5 days in 15 years and three of them were spent in the hospital. During the last 14 years at Western Electric I also farmed and had both cattle and hog feed lots and for the last 5 there I worked every Friday night as a road deputy for the local sheriff's dept. and every Saturday night as a dispatcher.

Finally took an early retirement from Western Electric and opened the gravel pit full time as well as farming and 4 nights a week as a road deputy. I closed the feed lots in 1983 when we had the drought and have never opened them back up.

Most of what I do should not be considered work as I enjoy it to much. I love working 30 something's in the dirt and laughing when they beg off!

I am trying to find a good individual to lease my gravel pit out on a percentage basis so that I can travel the country with my grandkids now. My son is farming and selling way to much seed to operate it and my daughter is a senior at IUPUI and will be a head doctor so she does not want to operate it ( having a PHD as a head doctor seems more to her liking than running a gravel operation )

I just started a new job a bottling company.. After 3 days I'm sitting just over 40..
My job with airline industry consists of 40 hrs a week. But I'm semi-retired, in that I choose to give away some of my schedule days for work to others looking for some overtime to supplement their salaries. So I work when I need working and travel for free when the need for traveling arises.

Free travel sounds nice!
