How would you feel about this husband's work schedule?

One week home, one week gone. It can be home 4 days to gone 10 days even. It makes me crazy. How would you feel about it?

  • My husband is on call 24/7 so its always a crap shoot. In 2007 he left to do a job that was going to take a week and it took three months.... it was like an extended vacation for me! ROFLMAO....

  • I would support him - some jobs require a crazy schedule; my DH travels quite a bit, works long hours, I appreciate what he does to make sure we are taken care of.

  • My husband is a sports announcer. He travels all the time and there is no set schedule. It's incredibly annoying but there are lots of other benefits to it...like the pay and he also has a down time where he gets 2 months in a row off at a time. His last trip he was gone for 50 days to South Africa for the World Cup. Sometimes I joke that I feel like a single mom with a trust fund.

  • It would only bother me if the time he got to be home lacked in quality time for me and our family.
