He's of course beyond pissed because he was supposed to have his kids next weekend but now he will be on the friggen rig.
He also now won't get two weeks off like he's supposed to either, now its one week....and that can't be changed because it fucks with his time off at Christmas time.
For those of you confused. He works on an offshore oil rig, they are building one now and it's getting ready to sail out to its final destination.
We are both grateful for his job, we both realize what a blessing it is to have a job in an economy like this and I do know there are people out there that work harder or longer than my SO but that doesn't minimize my or his feelings or frustration. It also doesn't mean I'm not allowed to voice my frustrations on here either. Yes this is life but venting helps me cope.
