    We have been working 12, 13 and 14 hour days. Today, I went to start my personal car by reaching for the FOB on my belt.:teethy:

    My car does have a remote starter. I start it from the pkg car when I get back to the center and by the time I do my turn-in and punch out it is defrosted and toasty warm.

    I have a thick rug and a pillow in my truck. I lay down and take a nap.

    I'll be burning the midnight oil tonight...Prolly put in a triple shift today. But I won't have to double the rest of the week, so it'll be totally worth it!

    I've seen a fatigued driver put his diad to his ear to answer when his cell phone rang. To many electronic devices and not enough sleep!:1eye:

    I did the same thing Friday night... And today at the grocery store I reached to the left side of my chest for a pen that wasn't there.

    I grabbed my razor one night after work and put toothpaste on it. Caught myself, and just stared at it in disbelief for a few seconds. Over worked drivers sure do make safety sense huh?
