12hrs per day

I actually am an advocate of the 12hr shift. The trouble for me is, to start at 10am, I need to leave around 0730 as the traffic is beyond horrible. It's a nightmare.. even with two hours to get to the signal box, I run close to time.

Both Days I was on Sydenham.. on the first 12hr.. I had a most unusual SPAD. (Don't ask.) It was two signals opposite directions one train and one track. HAHAHAHA Had the management scratching their heads... The next day I had to clarify the NOS' report as he was not quite understanding himself.

I did my best, but as most managers take a car to work and not a train, it is hard to explain the ins and outs of track circuitry.

The rest of the first shift was a blur of activity and the second shift was much much quieter. It was interesting that 5, 5 out of 8 employees on the day shift did 12 hours on tuesday. MOST of the shift remained. Hmmm

I have not had time to turn on my computer and my friends think I am deserting them. Still, bills needed to be paid. I had managed to get behind in credit cards and phone bill.
I got $300 behind in my phone bill. I NEED my phone so this was a high priority.. The credit cards can wait. If it means I can't buy stuff I want so be it. I need to get my debt under control.

Only two weeks to holidays..

Today's 8hr shift will seems short when compared to the previous few days.
