27. Never Again
I stayed at a hotel in Sakhalin, Russia after an emergency call for work offshore near there. I had 8 hours before my flight and I needed some sleep because I was going to be working straight off the flight.
My room was about 3 meters by maybe 1.5 meters and all that was in it was a bed and a tatty rug. Not even a fucking bathroom. The mattress was made of what I can only assume was sandpaper filled with nails, broken glass, and asbestos.
Needless to say, I didn’t get much sleep. Work was hell. Being awake for 60 hours can really lower the quality of your food. I’m a cook on an oil rig in case I didn’t already say that.
