Working Off Shifts
One of my least favorite activities is working off shifts, particularly night turn. It takes a toll on me, and the older I get the worse it feels. I call it the night turn hangover because it takes a few days to get be back on schedule. Sometimes I do silly things other times I act goofy, it's just my response to being very very tired. I suppose it's a natural kind of thing, because who wants to stay awake all night and work?
In the end, it's just part of my job and millions of other people are no doubt working the same means to an end that I am. I always thought I would get used to it, but going from daylight to night turn in the same week is proving to be a pretty frustrating and intense experience. Oh well, got to get ready to head out again.
