Night shift, 7pm to 7am, North Sea, Oil Rig.
Christ. Spent my afternoon listening to Mogwai and reading a book when I should have been sleeping. Now, I am paying for it.
Bacon sandwichs in 30 minutes though...
must be an inscentive in there somehwere.
for crazy women shouting about bombs or something!!!
isn't it usually a couple of weeks on; couple of weeks off?
not on shifts so when I go out it is for a few days (13 last time) but when I get back, still have to go into the office.
a lot of the lads I went to Brechin High wi are workin offshore now. Money's good though, no?
Don't complain... you guys get heaps of cash for being out there, yeah?
for the 5 days, aprrox £800 or something. I know I know, capatlist scum and I shouldn't complain... but 12 hours with out music to listen to except Virgin Radio is a Prison.
but I you forget one important thing.
I owe every single penny of that cash to mate.
but shit, yes. basicaly i moved up here a few months ago and my pay got totally gashed and missed a month. mate, who is working gave me some cash to tide over but with deposit for new flat plus some indientals (booze) and i still owe him. even after this payment he still has me over a barrel as i broke his original pressing of The Fake Sound of Progress.
I mean you can't watch any films or anything. (Y'know - cos they always say they're not licensed for hospitals, schools, oil rigs etc.)
On a 12 hour nightshift, but rather than the North Sea i'm in fucking CRAWLEY.
