After a year of working graveyards, I started my new shift at 6:00am.  I feel like damned Nosferatu, shying from the daylight, but at least I'll be able to play online games with some of you guys again. smile

Grats! 14 years of nights for me and still going strong. Actually, where I'm at now I prefer nights to the assholes I'd have to deal with working days.

Welcome to the daytime!  At least the boards are a bit more active during your shift now...  Which um, technically they shouldn't be.  Back to work for me!

That sucks.. I'm used to going to sleep well past 6am, coudn't imagine starting at it.
They did try to stick me on the day shift at the jail and I worked it a few days until I said enough of this BS! Put me on a shift I'm most effective on.
Some people are naturally night people, if you have a problem getting up early in the morning no matter what time you went to sleep the night before, you're one of those people.
I can go to sleep at 8pm, and waking up at 5am is the greatest challenge of the day to show up by 6.

At least if it were an afternoon shift.. 2pm to 10pm say, that'd let you sleep in late. But damn KD, 6am!!

Right on the money Sam Hell, not only that, but the night shifts also tend to be a little less hectic, calmer, cooler (but still warm) weather (here in south florida anyway) and you dont have to deal with as much BS.
When I get on shift at 10pm - the inmates have 2 hours left until lockdown. So I only deal with inmates for about 3 hours a day - from 10p-12a and 5a-6a.
I spent almost a year working the 2nd shift and had to deal with inmates and juveniles all day, from getting spit on, urine being thrown on you, and nearly being stabbed by some 400 pound dude who wasn't right in the head, I've spent enough time on the day shift to know it's not for me.

But hey, whatever works for you Ron.. enjoy waking up so early when you know people like me and Sam are just getting off of work and get to kick back and relax!  icon_wink

My wife agrees.. She works the graveyard shift and enjoys it.  Much less assholes, quieter, less busy.  I tease her because she is like a vampire during the days, closing up the shades, crawling under a blanket.  It cracks me up to no end...

I like working nights.  Less traffic, less people, and if there's something I need to get done during daytime hours, I don't have to take a day off or try to squeeze it into the weekend.  thumbsup
