Since coming to Oz, doing 14 hour days is fast becoming normal. It makes an 8 hour day like most in the UK seem soooo easy!

Also i did 69 hours in a week and then did 12 days straight.

Whats the most youve worked?

I stayed an hour late once, so half 8 until 6.

Felt like I was going to die, so stressful.

I once did 38 hours as an apprentice. Working 5pm-8am in Manchester but had to go to college inbetween.

When we were working away from home on price work we'd sometimes do 7am till at least midnight, might as well be earning as sat in a travelodge.

I've done some horrendous days in my current job especially during sea trials. The worst few days was staying in the office from 0830 until 0330 the following morning, going home which takes an hour, into bed at 0430. Up at 0700 to drive to Southampton, working all day on a boat to then drive back to collect an urgent part from the factory, getting back to the factory at 2030 and then driving straight back to Southampton to fit it. Getting to the hotel at 0200 and up for acceptance with the customer at 0630. Full day of trials and then driving home at 1630. The work wasn't that bad but driving 1000miles in that short a time scale kills me these days.

Got bullshit for the rest of this week too and driving up to Greenock at lunchtime for a few days

Actually the worse was when I worked an event at the Monaco GP this year in May.

Worked 8-3 at work, knocked off an hour early, taxi to Gatwick, flew to Monaco, got to the apartment we were using at about midnight? Apartment looked like a drug dealers place, so didn't really sleep, just kipped on the sofa, up at 4 across to beach to start setting up, event started at 10 that evening, went on till 4 the next morning. Finished at 5ish, had some chips at a local hotel, taxi back to the airport and back in the UK Sunday 11am ish.

Slept for 2 hours, had a shower, went to the missus house like nothing had happened

When I was young, I did a few 20 - 23 hour days when things when tits up and needed to be fixed.

But now, barely do 8 hours. Sometimes a few extra hours in the evening but thats it.

Missus works 11 hours a day, 6 days a week as an estate agent. I thought it would kill her, but 10 years down the line she still doing the same hours - says she is used to it.

Depends on my shift pattern, but 19:00 - 07:00 Monday - Friday, then 13:00 - 21:00 Saturday, 07:00 - 15:00 Sunday, then 07:00 - 19:00 Monday - Friday isn't very uncommon.

Probably 9am - 1am the following day.

Although once I was in Singapore and had to work all day and then through the night to coincide with London hours. That was probably about 25 hours straight.
