    One word for day shifters "CRAZY!"

    i hate day shift, i'm NOT a morning person. I don't mind the business of it. i just hate it being that crazy even before the sun comes up. I hate waking up early and pretending to have to be "Jolly and happy to be at work" because the truth of the matter is, i am a freaking BEAR!!!! in the mornings. Aint no smilin from this nurse at 0700.

    Boy, can I relate Even now, with no need to stay up (on disability, so no mandatory wake up times), I'm usually up all night. I just fuction better. With Wally World open 24/7 and another grocery store open, and mail order, I'm set The dumpster is open all night, the gas station is open, if I get really crazy there's Denny's or IHOP But mostly, I'm just up surfing the net, here, or FB. Wake me up before noon, and I'm one grouchy buzzard Tell me to be somewhere at 2 am and I'm good to go
