up at 6-6.45, three S's, on the road by 7:15. Stand in line to turn in yesterdays work, stand in another line to pick up todays work, then a third liine to get equipment. Out to the field by 9 to get my 8-10am appointments done. Barly slide in to all of my jobs on time all day (a cable guy is only on-time to his first job in any given time frame) Take no lunch. Barly slide in the door at school for classes at 6pm. Finaly put the truck to bed around 10-10:30. Eat dinner with the wife, do paper work for work for around an hour. Make sure I comprehend school work for the day. And watch that 70's Show, King of Queens, And Steve Harvey Show. Finally, ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

Wakeup around 6-6:30. Shower,shave sometimes coffee and breakfast. Usually i am at clients doorstep between 7:30-8:00. Usually finish 4-5 PM. Leave jobsite and go hunt down material for the next day. I had all my phone call forwarded to my cell #, Thank God i have been busy lately so i have all those call forwarded to my home office where my lovely wife picks up. She still needs training but it is better than talking to the client while in the crawl space and writing addresses down on the floor joists.

Get up at 5:00am. Scratch my beard, showered last night Make a big breakfast... eggs, sausage, toast, milk, coffee; and cereal or yogurt. (I had to do this as I was running out of steam before coffeetime). Throw my lunch together. Get on my work gear (overalls, jacket, boots, knapsack, etc).
Run out the door at 5:55 to catch the bus at 5:58. 10 minute bus ride, 20 minutes on the commuter train, 10 more minutes on a bus, and a brisk 10 minute walk.
Usually have about 10 minutes to guzzle coffee before I start at 7:00. Coffee break at 9:30. Lunch at 12:45. If I'm lucky, one of the two foreman will have shown up so I can get some material ordered Finish the day at 3:15. Getting home is the exact reverse of getting to work. Repeat 5 times each week.
