If you've ever used the word "snowflake" at someone else, you should be too when you look at yourselves in the mirror the next time.
I'm kind of shocked after two more pages of posts no one has put you under the hot lights and lie detector to swear your allegiance to 2A

Probably something screwy with your phone. Haven't heard of anybody else getting it a second time.

Is this the part where I talk about working 11p shift, run a business by day, and squeeze in all my sleep between 6 and 10PM?

No?

How about working 8p to 4a, have 2 energetic boys during the day, and still find ways to nap my way through the day...

I've learned to love my sleep in the years following, but we all get interrupted, and by some of the stupidest crap possible.

I just assumed that the alert sender and the bridge jumper are the same guy.

A dysfunctional family situation in Maryland doesn't require alerting everyone in the state with a cell phone. I don't care if it's 430AM or 430PM. Hell's bells, there's 50,000 possible alerts just from Baltimore.

That's just pointless.

Just because you CAN do something like this doesn't mean that you SHOULD. If you disagree with my position, why not alert the entire state? SOMEone has to do something; maybe activate the Tactical Social Worker Squad.

Then it is something weird with the system and your area. I have personal and work cells on different carriers. Both got the original and neither got a repeat. No family members or friends got the repeat either.

Well, my whole family got both alerts...let me repeat that again, MY WHOLE FAMILY GOT BOTH ALERTS, and once awake, neither my wife nor myself can get back to sleep. Can someone tell me how a sleeping population can give information or find Amber Alert kids? Road messaging boards and radio (every car's got one!) are the answer as that is the population who are on the roads and who can really assist in finding kids who are abducted and being transited by vehicle.

Nope. I was giving you a chance to think over your words. I've never been a gov employee, unless you count 20+ years active duty.

Back to your words... this is MD, so a good part of the work force is federal. Including a number of this community you just joined. And you just called them parasites. Way to make friends and influence people. Now that you know, go ahead and insult me for being retired mil too.

Get back to me about beauty sleep after you work 12-16hrs a day 7 days a week for a couple months.
Is that the best you've got?

Try 16 hours, 7 days a week for 6 months. Then after a couple months of an 'almost normal' schedule you do it for another 6 months. Then another. And another.

Or 4 years of straight 2/2/2 & 80 at a remote site. That's 2 day shifts, after 7 hours off you do 2 eve shifts, 7 hours off and 2 mids. 80 hours off and start the 2 days again. You will never have a normal sleep pattern because you're always playing catch up.

Happens every day. I get 3-4 hours most mornings, then every once in a while I get 8-9 hrs hard sleep to 'catch up'. And I don't work 'nights', I work afternoons but usually leave halfway into a night shift.
