Default Most strenuous work schedule

tis that time of year when some odd shifts have to be worked. This week I had to work 57 hours at one job, and 30 at the other. It'* a new week and I get to start it being sick off my A. These are the shifts I worked Thursday-Sunday that were crazy.

Thursday. Job 1 9AM-4PM Job 2 4PM-12AM (15 hours.)
Friday: Job 1 9 AM-2PM Job 2 2 PM-1 AM (16 hours)
Saturday Job 2 8AM-4AM (20 hour shift)
Sunday: Job 2 8AM-5PM (9 hour shift)

So basically in just four days, I worked 60 hours, out of the 87 total!!

Who else has put in some pretty odd hours?

My schedule is based on a six day rotation. I'm at work for 48 hours straight. When we're busy it can be crazy. It'* okay if we're not. This is followed by four days off. Usually the first one is spent recovering.
