Loupdinour: best of luck with those tough working weeks, I hope it's for a good cause (of course "good cause" also includes your bank account at the end of the month). If it's any consolation, 50-60 hours working weeks have been my average in the past 4 years so you're not the only one who has to cope
Eh, I get 1.5x for anything over 40hrs, so they try to limit me on how much OT I get to do. It's going to a good cause, it's going to the following foundations: Loup needs work done on his transmittion in his car, Loup just bought new cell phones and upped the price of his cell plan, Loup and wife need new glasses, Loup wants to take a friggin vacation.
As for other good causes...eh, I guess it's good for the customer as well. This stuff will get used by them in their R&D facility for new pharmacuetical drugs.
I'm not a morning person, so AMP's lemonade-flavored energy drink has been my friend first thing in the morning. I prefer to get any OT time in while the wife is asleep or working on the weekend so as not to cut into any 'us time'. Now I just need to adjust when I get to sleep and perhaps that would help me out in the mornings.
