    You pick up a day shift and it really throws you off to start and finish work on the same calendar day.

    You go out for beers with your coworkers after a rough 7:30 am.

    When you leave at the end of your shift, you say "goodnight" 7:30 am.

    You have to restrain yourself from going off on people who refer to your sleep time as "napping."
