Try deploying on a Navy ship, and you can occasionally have your wish.
Clocks always fall back when everyone is awake, and move forward when
So sometimes I get a 19 hour workday instead of 18. But that's only because
I have watch from 2000-2400 (eight pm to midnight) for a little while. Then
it's up at revellie, although I cheat and don't get up until 0620.
And some days are nearly non-stop.
Don't think I'm unhappy or miserable or anything. I'm well aware that I'm
floating around safely in air-conditioned comfort, with access to the
internet and the television and such.
But they always say that 'a bitching sailor is a happy sailor.'
I'm very happy tonight.
