[QUOTE=Thirds;165547]I know the horse is dead at this point but for those of us still working, we’re still working. Alot of men and women are sitting at the house wondering what to do. I am fortunate enought that I planned for situations just like these and can stave off “the man” for awhile, hopefuly I planned well enough. If not there is always inland work to be had. However in my neck of the woods that meens that the AMO owns it and I would have to bite that bullet. On the other hand I must say that some of the people that are no longer working lost that opportunity by their own hand. I was talking with my crewing supervisor and she said when she was calling guys to either stay over or come back early they would tell her “no thanks”. I was surprised at the amount of guys that did just that. I witnessed it, 3 were asked to stay over 2 weeks and all 3 said no thanks, i’d rather head to the house, knowing full well that they may not get called back at all. Its not the time to be prideful, its time to suck it up and do what is asked. If your the captain and they call you back as a cook, suck it up Shirley and put that apron on. Wish you all well and hoping for a shorter than expected downturn. Stay salty[/QUOTE]
They actually ask people to stay on longer? Heh. Where I work, they don’t bother with such niceties. They just extend you and you’re the last one to find out.
