Default Early mornings

I have the joy of starting work at 8am- just wondering what time every one starts- I hate 8 am - first alarm goes off at 6 and it's like raising the dead every morning!

05:30 is normal wake up time back home, kids are in school just after 7am. Waking at 6am or just after whilst working in Doha is almost a holiday! Getting to work for 8am is no problem.

Officially I am on the 8.00-16.30 shift - in fact, I go in later (8.30-ish) and stay till I feel I've been screwed enough, then I go home (or, increasingly, to Bridges Bar in the Fairmont).............

Have been at work by 8am for the last 16 years. These days I wake up at 6.45am and do 30 minutes on the exercise bike before shower and breakfast. Leave home by 7.45am. Back home before 5.15pm.

Official start time is 8am, usually in the office by around 7:45am.

Official finish isn’t until 6pm, which sucks balls.

Default Re: Early mornings

Normally get up at 545am with the wife and end up in the office by 730am. Generally try to leave the office by 430-5pm so I'm home shortly after. Most of my customers and contacts are in banking and tend to finish at the same time or before me.

Cant be assed with the people in my office who wander in around 10 pretending that they stay half way through the night. I have returned to the office after a late meeting etc around 6 and its always deserted. Lazy gits.

And possibly guilty of fraud? Being paid for hours not actually worked, but claiming they have worked?

Day off today, so posting on internet forum in daytime

I'm up at 5:30am, in office at 6:30am, leave at 3pm. That way I miss the rush hour traffic in both directions.

Default Re: Early mornings

If I'm in the office then its 8 - 6 in theory but more like 8:30 - 6:30 in reality.

If on site, leave home at 8ish and get back anywhere from 3 to 8 depending on location and what I'm doing.

What's the matter with you people?

Original Sunshine- OMG! In the office at 6.30 am? good grief!

OK so what time does everyone go to bed to get up at the crack of a sparrows fart? how many hours sleep are you all getting?
