Its my friends dad'* company. Crew size varies. Right now its those two + me + new worker ( only 15 yrs. old), and another friend of mine that hasn't worked for us in two years but has returned. Sometimes the "girls" come and "work" if the job is long. But that doesn't happen anymore since they are pretty much useless.

I get the quotes around 'work', but the ones around 'girls' strikes me as odd...

(I obviously need something other then these posts to analyze.)

Princess, they are 13 and 16 yrs old. Hence, why I called them girls and not women.

14 hours is good... but....

I went to work at 5:30 monday morning, and didn't go home until 2:45 Tuesday afternoon. Needless to say I was a bit grogy when I got home.
