FYI: We both make about the same salary, represent a family of three, and are about the same age. I work at a sub-par 135 operator and crew 3 airplanes: 2 learjets and one piston twin. I have few to no real days off a month and get 2 weeks vacation a year. I receive a set salary no matter how many days I work. I only really know my days off after they happen.

He works at a very large light bulb distribution company (think Dunder Mifflin but with light bulbs instead of paper). He works Monday through Friday and has a 30 min commute to the office. He gets 2 weeks paid vacation a year an all the normal HR stuff that comes with a big company.

The Findings:

I worked 15 Days and spent 198 hours away from home. Much of the time away from home was during night hours on overnight trips. Wednesday the 5th was counted as a workday because I came in the door at 0200.

He worked 20 days and spent 180 hours away from home all during day time hours.

Next month could be completely different. What do the 121 numbers look like?
