Gravy Train

Every night around 1930 hours phones start ringing. We call it the gravy train. It's a phone call asking if we want to pick up an overtime shift for which we've signed up.

At some stations the guys simply wait and see if the phone rings. At other stations the guys follow the staffing list to see where they may fall. They know where and with whom they will be working when that call comes in.

I think I'm getting that call tonight. We'll see.
