Re: BORED

Things are really slow across the couple of boards I visit. It is just that time of the year I guess.

Re: BORED

<font face="Comic Sans MS">Straight night shifts would be easy... I work 3-2-2 swingshift, 730-1930, or 1930-730, switches every time i go back... Interesting stuff, but it can lead to being tired for about a day afterwards... I've gotten to where I prefer weekend and night shifts to days... </font>

Re: BORED

I also work the swings and mids. I work from 2 pm to 10pm for three days then work 10pm to 6am for the next three. and on the 24 hour period i am in training from 8am to 3pm(they don't want to come into work at night so we train on the trainers times). So I have one crazy time knowing when to sleep. redtoy92

Re: BORED

Baron: I am with you. I used to work 16 hour shifts. 4pm till 8am. Worked one day off the next 1 1/2. Kind of like the A,B,C fire shifts. It was great for a while but then missed alot of "family time".

It was nice because I had almost every day to myself.

Re: BORED

Yep another night but today had no sleep I was home and working on the farm chopping corn and filling the silos so I am going on about 3 hours of sleep tonight but it will make really well for a full days sleep this morning. That is the hard part going from nights out here in Jersey then go home for the weekend to work at home on a day shift schedule and then back to nights . Oh well it makes things a little more intresting . My buddys will laugh every morning when the call me and see what I am doing on there way to work. It is my night time then so I am eating a steak and drinking a few beers at 8:00 in the am they get a kick out of it. Just because the work time changes dosen't mean the habits have to !

Amen, brother!!!

I work 12 hour shifts (5pm - 5am) 3 nights one week, 4 nights the next. The neighbors just wave now when I'm watering the lawn and grilling at 7 am with an ice cold beer in hand and they're headed for rush hour traffic [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
