Would you rather work Saturday and Sunday while having two weekdays off or have the weekends to do as you please?
I'm working this type of shift now. Honestly the most bothersome part is that friends and family can't seem to remember which days I have off. It's not difficult and it hasn't changed in over a year but I'm still asked regularly.
I only want to work Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and have a four day weekend every weekend. Oh wait, I do. I'm an airline pilot. God I love my job.
When I was married and the kids were small, I wanted weekends off. Now, it wouldn't matter.
"When are you off this week?"
"... Thursday & Friday. Just like last week. And the week before. And before that too."
I prefer the shift currently but it's partially because I also work nights and could never get anything done w/o a free weekday.
I said weekends free. Most people have the weekend off, and if I felt like going out late - there's a greater chance I'd have company.
How long are those three days,
Yeah, I've worked the same DAYS for over six years. The hours have changed but the days are the same.
