    I work nights because it's the only way I can take care of all the stuff I have to keep up with in my life.
    Thank you for the kind words. We don't hear them very often.

    Thank you for your kind words, I can tell you mean them. What a nice gesture it would be if we all were to be kind to the other shifts.
