Great googly moogly. I'm pooped. I'm so tired I hit the 'cancel' button on that picture three times by mistake before I could get it to upload.
You would think that only eleven and a half hours at work wouldn't be that bad, but it came down pretty hard on these old bones.
Had to be in at noon for shotgun training, then work a full shift. Earlier in the week, they were letting people 'flex' their time after training rather than have them accrue overtime. But we are so short on Fridays that I knew that wasn't going to happen. And it didn't.
To top it off, I got stuck on 30 yard. Generally, it's a pretty mellow and easy place to work. It's not even really a yard, just a long walkway from 30 house to B-yard, about 50 or 60 yards long. But there's a dogleg in the middle of it that creates a blind spot you can't see into from the house or the big yard, so they stuck a shack the size of your average outhouse at the corner and called it 30 yard.
And even though my zone of responsibility was very small, when you do the 30 yard inner perimeter check, it encompasses 10 house yard as well (since there is no 10 yard officer) so that walk turns into a mile or so after you wind in and around everything and backtrack to get all the gates and whatnot. Fortunately I only had to walk it twice. Once at the beginning of shift then again at the end.
Old age is catching up to me. I don't think I'll be going after the 30 yard spot if it opens up.
So, by your leave, I'll just check the calendar for the weekend and call it good.
I hope you don't mind.
