                No line at all. We were in with the first shift short order cook, got fresh coffee, good food, and decent service. If it had been 4 a.m., it would have been much different. There was only one WH employee sleeping in a booth.. Uh, I mean, "resting her eyes.."

                Here in Mississippi, at 5 a.m. in June, the sun is already breaking daylight, and all the midnight zombies have returned to their dark holes to digest their blood lust rewards.

                  I'll still do the occasional all nighter, with advance notice. This is so I can take a couple days off to re-coup. I don't rebound as well as I use to.

                  • An all nighter for me means sleeping for at least six hours continous.

                        • Not to be rude, but one of my FF's need to learn that I don't need a talking, question asking, second shadow. I know how to diagnose a burned out headlight, and I'm 99% sure I don't need to go through the wiring system, to fix it.

                          If it was a fuse, the other one wouldn't be working either!!!!! UUUGGGHHH!!!!!!

                          I'm good, mentally.

                          • A burned out headlight? That's the one that's not working, right??

                            You should send your helper after a match so you can re-light the bulb..

                            • You could send your "helper" for 50 feet of shoreline, 3 skyhooks, or a bucket of steam. He'll be gone for HOURS. Some of you former navy pukes will know what I'm talking about.

                              • I've had the chance to play with a FF "candidate" awhile ago. While he was my gopher, I asked him to get me a can of "friction loss" out of their maintenance cabinet, so I could lube the ball valve and seals I was replacing.

                                After about 20-30 minutes asking the other FF's for it, did someone let him in on the joke.
                                In good spirit, the next time I stopped by, he gave me a can with "friction loss" written on it. I just about died laughing.
