Working over Christmas?

Anyone else working over Christmas?

I'll be spending the first few hours of the morning (i.e. 2-4am) waiting on a truck to deliver our load, then unloading it. Wont get through all my work until about 5 am, so the first part of Christmas day will be sleeping time for me!

Ah well, two words make it worth it: Penalty Rates .
