That was directed to Fr33...I saw why you work nights

I get paid the same for working days or nights, but I'm in a remote location so it doesn't matter to me. There's less people to deal with at nights usually.

I am a night person anyway.

I exclusively close at my shitty retail job and I only take night classes with a few exceptions (based on class availability).

Tell me about it brother. And he doesn't even have the common decency to throw in for the bills.

Why are people suddenly using verboten all over the place as an English word? It's a German word I learned in my third year of it but until last year had never heard anyone use it in English. Now it's EVERYWHERE. Some pop culture reference I'm missing?


CLUELESS brah. That's not even new.

Yeah that is another negative of days.



Night shift we play on the internet during downtime and eat and drink at the nurse's station. That would NOT fly on days at all. We are the rebels, us nightshifters

I smoke way too many cigarettes,
Drink coffee by the pot,
To while away the lingering hours,
Movies help, but not a lot,
And there ain't much conversation,
When the waking world is dead,
And the time drags by so slowly,
Thoughts are racing in your head,
So you do the best you can,
Just to make the time pass by,
But there's only so much you can do,
'til the sunlight stings your eyes...

Yeah, no management is probably the best thing about nights

The world moved slower. We are becoming exponentially faster with the advent of information literally at our fingertips.

I tend to play games on my PC, watch TV, or study for the CCNA cert that I want so badly. Sometimes they give me busy work, like tonight I have to test a ton of features on a cable box because they are testing a new firmware upgrade.

Living under siege, man. Stagnation is no way to fight a war.

Bum-bah-badda-bah-bum-ah-bump ah-bump-ah-bum
I said a Bum-bah-badda-bah-bum-ah-bump ah-bump-ah-bum
Bum-bum-badda-badda-badda-bah-ah-bumpa-bumpa-badda-bummmmmm

Well I'm out here on the night shift, workin  with the night shift blues
Yeah just out here on the night shift, workin with these, night shift bluuuuuuu-uuues,
And I feel it from my hard hat, down to the steel toes in my shoes...

Well these long and lonely hours, well they take a heavy toll
Yeah these long and lonely hours, man they take a heavy toll
Well it's torture on the body, and even worse off on the soul...

Y'know that once your world starts shiftin, you start to miss your kith and kin
Yeah once you get to shiftin, you miss your family and your friends
Everyone just starts to driftin, and some you never, see again.

Yeah I got the night shift, I got the night shift bluuuuuuuu-uuuuues.
