    Last month I was working 12 hours/day for 7 days for nearly 5 weeks to complete an order for 21 windows. The building company had left it until the end of April to order them even though they knew they needed them at the end of Feb!

    And to show thier gratitude I'm still waiting to get paid for them! :soapbox:

    Wow! I hope he's getting paid well for it! Welders here are on quite good money especially structural stuff.

    When classes are in session, 50 hours/week, with about 8 hours commuting (feels like work...maybe stopping to take some photos along the way will help!).

    I worked 91 hours one week.

    And I've worked 18days in a row before.

    Now I don't work at all.

    But I am in class from 7a-6p 5 days a week. Come home and study for 2 more hours, and about 5 hours each Sat & Sun.
