Fort Worth, TX
Here at this gate guard assignment we usually get up at 5 am. At least Len does.
Traffic through the gate usually starts around 5:45. Today, no one was here at 5:45, at 6:00, at 6:30, at 7:00. We were getting concerned. Finally the first person arrived around 7:40. Apparently everyone but us knew they would be waiting for some equipment. They could have told us.
This is our set-up. The gate guard company supplies the generator, fuel, water and sewer system. We supply the manpower checking people in and out the gate.
This is an easy enough way to earn some extra cash but today sure would have liked to have known we could have slept in!
But really not complaining. This gate is a keeper. Only 13 hour days and off on Sunday. Compare that to 24 hour days and no days off as we did last year. Same pay. Does get boring however. Leonard can sit in front to TV watching old Westerns all day. I sleep, play on computer, read my Kindle, watch TV and start all over again. Can only watch the same John Wayne or Gene Autry movie so many times.
