PostSubject: Working on Saturday   Sat May 14, 2011 11:23 am

Ok I am working at the office today (can you tell?).
Does anyone here have to work regularly on weekends?
I have one of those 9-5 office jobs, and very seldom have to work on the weekends. On occasion I will get a job with a narrow deadline and will need to work the occasional Saturday.
I wouldn't need to work today but I took Tuesday off, and don't want to use my vaction time....so I'm making my time up on a Saturday.

I deliver newspapers from Tuesday to Saturday. No school on Saturday, of course.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

Sucks to be you. I guess inside your office is better than outside in the rain, since it rains there about what, 375 days per year?

Don't fret though. A lot of weeks I work Sunday-Friday and my days, a lot of the time, are 4a.m. to 9p.m.

I only work on the weekends about 3 or 4 times a year. The rest of the time it's just normal 8.30 - 5. I've once worked in a job where I had to work saturdays, but I had monday off instead so it wasn't too bad. It actually felt like you kept getting long weekends.

Wow, I didn't think anyone under the age of 20 delivered newspapers anymore. I delivered papers for about 2 years when I was about your age. Do you get driven around by one of your parents or do you have to do it on foot/bike?

Even suckier part is that it is a sunny day (a rare event here in the spring)......
But at least I don't have to get up before 6:30......if I had to be at work a 4am I would probably get in a car wreck because I would fall asleep at the wheel just trying to get to work.

That's pretty much me too but I probably do it more like 4 to 7 times a year.

I usually deliver my papers on foot, sometimes I take my bike. On weekends my parents have to drive me. Y'see, I live outside town, about 8km from the paper route; my school, however, is very close to the route. Ergo, approximately $90/month to pay my phone bills and whatnot.

I did pretty much the same but I always had to ride my bike. My route started almost 4 miles (about 6 kilometers) and then my route was about 3 miles long. I'm thinking I probably made about $60 to $80 a month as well.

I am a youth pastor, so I have to work every Sunday.

Yeah,I tend to work Saturdays and even Sundays for that matter. Yes I have to go back to work tonight. Sometimes I am lucky and get the weekend off. I was already sure I would have to work this weekend as we are getting ready for our stores Inventory this Tuesday,yuck.

Our pastor is always off on Mondays (but I think that is his only day off).

You are a mom, your job never stops. Smile

That's right but not all members of my family see cooking and washing the laundry as work.

I work Friday evening, sleep at the lodge Friday night and go back and work Saturday from 2:30 until 9:30. But it's ministry so I can't complain. Well, I do sometimes but I shouldn't.

Our pastor is always off on Mondays (but I think that is his only day off).




Since I am considered "part time", I don't have a set number of hours that the church requires me to be there. So, I don't have to be at the church but 2 days a week. So, that's why I am a substitute teacher Mon. through Fri. The two jobs together pay me somewhat close to what I made before I volunteered for the lay off from Bridgestone 2 years ago.

So techincally you don't really get a day off every week but at least you are doing something you enjoy considerably more than your previous job......sounds like a good trade to me.
