    I'm glad you are moving off the graveyard shift. That is no place for an adult -- it's okay if you're a teenager.
    It's not fun when my anxiety runs on me at 3 AM and I have an existential crisis in the bathroom.

    Great, because the 3rd shift experiment wasn't working out.

    It’s 11:30 PM CST on a Friday, and I started at 8PM to perform production validate for an update being released tonight for an internal app. I’m hourly, it’s in “shift premium” time, I’m also in OT for the week, and I’ve been twiddling my thumbs on company time all the while. Great process we have here.

    I do know him, but haven't gotten the details.


    What I did hear from a friend in our main office is one of the newly promoted project managers feels he could do a better job than the department head (who the department head has coddled has worked at getting the PM promoted) and the PM is lighting every bridge on fire on his way out the door. Also, the PM has used payroll information to try and pit his own reporting employees against themselves. All behind the department heads back.

    Yeah, great, thanks.

    Time to polish the resume and update the LinkedIn account....

    She's basically a sentient ethics violation.

    I worked 9 pm - 5 am one summer. Here's my advice:

    1) Force yourself to sleep exactly the same time period during the day. Your body is going to want to wander around. Don't listen to it. After about 4 weeks you acclimate.

    2) Don't nap, that will mess you up worse than a drinking binge.

    3) Interact with people at work as much as you can; the alienation of the overnight shift is isolation and introversion.

    4) Be 20.
    I am not 20.

    One advantage of no PTO. I had just a 4-day weekend with the snow day.
