The passengers don't realize the long days either. Some jobs go to work before the chickens are up. They might do a second rounder, or a flip (partial trip to Congress Park, or Downers Grove). This is usually directly after the first inbound leg, or right before the last outbound leg. Most all day is spent laying over. Some of these jobs tie up after 1900h.
