I'm ready for this night to be over and done. I find I like them less and less, and home grows colder and colder.

I hated going back on nights, although there are no bosses here they like to bitch about everything the next day cause they weren't here to know what hell we went through.

I also miss spending the time with my wife and kids when I was on days the last 6 months.

That is why I always preach to people about shift work. If one ever gets a chance, go days. I worked shift for over 35 years and now I can't sleep for shit!

It's taken a toll on me for sure. If I could do it all again...knowing what I know now, I'd have to think long and hard on it.

Think about it. Yes, the world turns 24/7. But more then 75% of the people work days only. They have no idea what or how a shiftworker lives.

Then you have all that lost time with family on weekends and holidays.

Life is to short and you only have one chance to live it!

Ain't that the truth. And they wonder why we look at the world through a different set of eyes.

This is why ya'll always see me posting early every day. I wake up anywere from 2am to 5am every day. I hit the sack around 10pm. FUUUUUCCCCK!

Oh, I have a BIL that is retired after 40 years of shift and he does the same.

Daywalkers have no fricking clue. People expect a nightworker to be able to switch sleep patterns at the drop of a hat and suddenly change back with no problem.

I hate making Dr appointments because I can't stand to be up past 10 AM.

I've been trying to convince the people here that we need to change our shift rotation up. Less back and forth. Either go to the Dupont schedule or work two weeks of days, two weeks of nights but still EOWO.

Been on nights mostly for about a year now. Doesn't really bother me too much becuase I was always a night owl anyways. Single with no kids I'm sure gives me 0 perspective whatsoever though.

It is nice seeing the sunrise everyday. Most people don't take enough time to do it. Reminds me to be thankful for my life everyday.

I will have a minimum of 40yrs of shift work when I get to retire.

I get more and better sleep when working nights.

Rotation is nice. I do a week of nights, followed by a week of days.

I think some people are built for shiftwork. I've always been a night owl. I looooooove working nights.
