    Did anybody else call off work, or trade shifts, or fake sick -- so you could watch the Packers vs Panthers?

    I called off, and will do it again on the other monday night games, cuz I work on monday nights, which is horrible. I hate missing MNF in general.

    Anyone else?

    Does anyone else have to work for you? I'm a nurse, and when someone calls in sick for the next shift, the least senior person gets forced onto another 8 hour shift. No replacement workers when you work for the State.

    Yeah, because of the budget, they won't hire casual or on-call staff, but would rather pay overtime. Go figure. And MN. has a Repuplican admin. Whoops, getting off track...if it wouldn't affect anyone else, I'd call in for a MON. game.

    I worked in a maximum security prison and I got so tired of going to work on Tuesdays after only 3 1/2 hours of sleep that I retired.

    In the position i'm in, i can't really call in much.......but i have DVR (same thing as TIVO, better imo) so i had that recorded, which is so nice cuz u can watch football games so fast, as soon as the player goes down and whistle is blown, you hit this button that skips to next scene and it usually starts like 5 secs before they snap the ball on the next down.......

    i have to work sunday from 3-7pm, so i'm good for the games that start at 10am here in az, for the later games i usually get someone to trade me their friday shift at the bank so i can watch it or i just listen to it on the radio while i'm here

    i used to trade shifts all the time when i was at gas stations and walmart and stuff when i was younger. if i couldn't switch, i become very ill...lol.

    maybe that hassle is why i started my own business.

    due to family issues, i had to watch the first 2 games on tape. lions, i got to see the 4th qtr live and then watched the tape.

    browns game, i avoided all media until 6am mon morning. i pop in the tape and chill. the pack score to pull within 2 with 2:30 to go in the 4th. wait, what's wrong with the tape???? my mom set the timer and it wasn't long enough! i went from a favre comeback to ren and stimpy.

    I used to work 2nd Shift, here in Indy... and what I did was to bring in one of those miniature TV's and stick it into my desk - just fits - and then, after Mgmt would go home, around 7.... out comes the electronics.... All of the other guys start switchin' desks just to get near the tube.....

    At the very least, you can bring up the MNF web site and keep track that way.... w/ a earplug in one ear to listen in on ESPN radio...

    I've conquered that animal these days....
