Feb 17, '03Smiling through clinched teeth I'd say "no problem man" but inside I'm saying I'm being paid, this shift will end & a nice warm bath and bed is waiting at the end.
Feb 17, '03Time is flying, I must be having fun
All things come to an end
If patience is a virtue, I must have a lot of virtue
Feb 17, '03I can stand anything for 8-12 hours...and now that I am agency, I NEVER HAVE TO GO BACK if I don't choose to...

"i love my job! i choose to be here"
(repeated over and over until you believe it...or someone laughs!)
