    I started a new job not too long ago and they want me to "orientate" for second shift to see what goes on during that shift.

    So, I woke up at like 6 o'clock this morning and I'm sitting around waiting to go to work at 3 this afternoon. It fucking sucks.

    Share your tales of woe here. Or come in here and fight. I really don't care. I just wanted to complain.

    I did when I was in my early 20s, wasn't so bad. Only sucked when I had night shift then for some reason had to come and open the morning shift the next day.

    What time did you usually go to bed and wake up?

    Fuck a 2nd shift.
    I used to waitress and felt like I needed to "rest up" before my 4pm shift, so I never got anything done.
    Then I'd get home at midnight, too amped up to fall right asleep. :sleepy:

    Well I work from 4-12. Watch TV for a bit when I get home, usually to bed by 3:30. I wouldn't switch to 1st shift, too much traffic
    & too many people at work.

    I definitely don't want to do it long term, but I have to do second and third shift for the next two or three weeks.

    I worked 3 - 11 one summer during college at a hotel. Got off work and walked across the parking lot to the bar and drank myself silly every single night. For free. After they closed, somebody would light up doobies and I'd sit there and drink and catch a buzz while everyone else cleaned up and caught a buzz. The bartender would play little tricks on me like pouring a cup of vodka into my beer pitcher. Then the staff would gather and drink until dawn. So my story doesn't relate to the adult world but it sure was fun. I deserved to be thrown into jail for life for driving some nights.

    I'd then sleep until it was time to go to work again.

    I've worked 4 PM to midnight everyday for the past 3 years or so. Have to keep a NY schedule even though I am 7 hours ahead.

    Nope! My regular schedule is first shift. This is just for a couple of weeks. I'll put my foot down and start screaming and throwing a temper tantrum!

    Worked second shift (2p - 10p) at a Harley Davidson plant a couple summers during my college years. It was the greatest fucking thing ever. I'd get off work right when people were starting to go out, party till close to sunrise then sleep till I had to go back to work.

    Even now I'd take second shift over my normal 8a - 6p or so. I'd try to sleep from 2a - 9a then be able to do things during the day while others are working.

    I'd like a 9-1 shift, Mon-Thurs. I don't think that's too much to ask. :fil:

    I take it by choice. Love it. I get to work alone and that's like getting a raise to me.
