    Well, I’m going to call it a night. Got 4 ice cold kroneys in the fridge calling my name. Thank you all for coming online and taking part, it’s been great, and that’s down to each and everyone of you. Until next time. Take care :slda: TRM
  • Taff86 Mon May 03, 2021 8:19 pm
    Aye
  • TheRealMeMon May 03, 2021 8:18 pm
    Not bad in reality, though I do feel the standard shift patterns are a little outdated.
  • Lay19 Mon May 03, 2021 8:17 pm
    That’s not bad actually
  • Taff86 Mon May 03, 2021 8:16 pm
    Every other weekend off, it's normally a 4 day weekend, the odd 3 day one. 4 shifts a week.
  • TheRealMeMon May 03, 2021 8:15 pm
    How does it work mate?
  • Taff86 Mon May 03, 2021 8:14 pm

  • Taff86 Mon May 03, 2021 8:14 pm
    The 4 day shift pattern at the prison is tidy tbh
  • TheRealMeMon May 03, 2021 8:13 pm
    I’ve just had to stop myself hitting the withdraw button after mentioning the dreaded A shift 😂
  • Lay19 Mon May 03, 2021 8:12 pm
    I’m going to enjoy my POELT working hours while I can
  • TheRealMeMon May 03, 2021 8:12 pm
    Look on the bright side, Taff. Could be an A shift
  • Taff86 Mon May 03, 2021 8:11 pm
