    Part time last 8 years after retiring full time, as a night shift weekends and holidays security guard at a Naval Air Base. Very quiet and had the place mostly to myself.

    I HATED going to work and seeing people going home, knowing that my 8.5 hours were just starting. Time drags. If I start early morning then the first 3-4 hours go fast.

    I still stare at ‘er every day. Oh Gordon. I expect he would lament his newly-found reliance on John Patterson’s money, but at least he got enough cash to stop buying those bright red mechanics coveralls, that he must have originally gotten for cheap at some place desperate to sell them.

    I once did radio once a week overnight. I am a morning person, so I found it brutal.

    I did it one summer, and panel four is what I did the rest of the day.

    I spent most of my postal career on the night shift, sleeping days—-and sleeping in the daytime was the first thing I ditched after retiring.

    I spent 3 weeks on night shift for a special project and loved it. I didn’t have to tend to any phone calls or visitors, I didn’t have to wait to use any of the lab equipment, and most importantly, no meetings! I got a lot of work done when I was left alone. I was disappointed to come back to the day shift with the hustle and bustle of all the people.

    Every third week was nightshift for 31 years, and I don’t miss it at all.

    I had to do the 1:30 pm to 2:00 am shift once (and yes, I did get paid my overtime, we were in a crunch and needed third shift coverage), and that was PAINFUL.

    When and where did Gordon work nightshift? He moved out of his parents’ house and started working/living at the garage last year when he was still in high school.

    Every shift provides the same amount of time for getting stuff done. As Mike elegantly demonstrates, sleeping takes up just as much of your off time on night shift as it does on day shift, it’s just harder to do because of daylight and interruptions.

    Before kids, swing shift was my favorite. (I like to wake up on my own without an alarm- when day shift starts at 6am, that’s not gonna happen) My spouse never worked a swing shift until the kids were long gone, and he also preferred it.

    Ah yes Mike the typical college student and Gordon already adulting his way through life.

    I worked a lot of night shifts, even before I got married. I remember on a date, my future wife let me take a “nap” on our date…..only to have to go to work when I left her.

    My husband has been working 3rd shift since our girls were toddlers. He’s so used to it that he’s not sure he could work day shift, which is good, because we share a car: I leave for work when he comes home. He has arranged his sleep schedule in a strange way, but it works for him: sleep from 9:30am-1:30, which gives him the afternoon for appointments, family time, etc., then he goes back to bed after dinner – around 5:30pm – and sleeps until it’s time to get ready for work.

    It’s not bad if you do it 5 days a week.

    BUT doing 11pm-7am, 7pm-7am, 7pm-7am (Fri/Sat/Sun) and then the rest of the week off, screwed with my system.

    What is he, narcoleptic? I hope Gordon’s not going to let him get back on the road after that little display.

    Worse, I worked night shift and a part time job day shift. I was so tired that when there was a fire in our home, I slept through all the commotion!
