Mr. Pilot gets paid to take a nap. In North Dakota.
A Growler broke down in North Dakota so Monday night my husband took a commercial red eye flight to bring it back. The air crew's job was to fix the jet and my husband's job was to take a nap and then fly it back. They literally paid for a hotel room for him to sleep in the middle of the day so he could safely fly the jet back. He was home by dinner. For some reason this makes me laugh. What a job.
