You might be a night shifter if...

  1. 21 You sit through 3 red lights before you realize the car in front of you is broken down, and not just stopped at the light. oops.

    You receive many fewer texts because people never know when you're sleeping.

    I've had whole conversations with people who called my phone during the day when I was sleeping and forgot to silence it, and then totally forgotten the entire conversation. Apparently I can hold up my end of the conversation pretty well though - only my mom can tell when I'm sleep-talking

    Yes deffinately the holding a conversation when asleep and not remembering it. My brother used to do this crap to me all the time. He would not realize I was asleep either.

    I have sat at a light until it changed - to red.

    You have a hard time checking if your patients are A/O X4 at 0200. "No sir it's not Tuesd... Oh wait, no, you're right."

    You can see in the dark better than most.

    when you're nauseated at 5 am
    when you know every snowplower's first name
    when you buy a heaping cart full of groceries on the way home before 8 am

    You're driving down the road at night and vaguely you see a red light in front of you in the distance. You wonder why it never gets any closer, and so you lean forward and squint -- and you realize that's not a red light, it's the person who's a bit ahead of you's tail lights.

    the patient asks if you would like the light to be turned on and you casually say no, I see in the dark . . . when breakfast occurs at 5:30 pm . . . and lunch at 2:30am . . . when you fall asleep in your driveway only to be woken up by the noise of children leaving for school, school buses and dogs barking

    you get easily confused as to what day it is. or you have to convince a resident who is screaming at the top of his lungs to be quiet in the middle of the night but he won't listen to anything and the entire hallway wakes up....

    You indulge in an adult beverage at 9am and think nothing of it.

    You have driven for 45 min and as you pull in your driveway you the heck you got there.

    You have been rudely awakened by a loud horn and someone making obcene gestures at you and you realize you feel asleep while waiting for the am rush traffic to move.

    You can eat a bowl of chili and drink a beer while everyone else is having eggs and coffee.
