Anyone else on here work graveyard? I have been since the first of June in order to get some things straightened out at work and will be on it through September. I'm a night owl but I find that the older I get, the harder it is to adjust sleep patterns. I worked it in college and could go for days on little sleep and can now but feel like **** all the time lol........

Years ago I worked as a security guard and had the 10PM-6AM shift. 99% of the time it was quiet and I could just read or listen to the radio, but that other 1% of the time could get weird. The freaks really do come out at night. You adjust to the sleeping during the day/rising at night routine - it just made things more difficult running errands like going to the bank, post office, doctor's, etc.

working graveyard is a lot harder to do during the summertime compared to the wintertime. Much much easier to sleep during the day when it's cold out than it is when it's 90 degrees.

i agree with you sam years ago i worked 3rd. shift for 12 years and probably slept about 2-3 hours a day in the summer if i was lucky ? besides the fact that i still lived at home and my mom was not the quietest person in the world there were kids outside playing, people cutting grass etc. and if your a light sleeper like i am it is really tough!!

Tell me about it. My neighbours dog barks for hours at a time. Try getting up for work in the evening when you've been kept awake all day by a dog enjoying the summer weather. If you want to work nightshifts you need to live in a bunker a mile away from any other human beings. Either that or be born deaf.

Done it, not for me. I used to work 3 jobs back to back with an hour break in between to go home and shower. Slept during the overnight most of the time. BORING!

I myself have never worked an overnight shift. When I used to waitress during and after finishing college, the latest the restaurant was open was 12:00, so I was out of there by 1:00. However, it was so hard to wind down, that I'd stop and buy a six-pack and watch Star Trek and whatever else happened to be on until I felt sleepy. I feel for you Motley. Everything is different now that we are getting older. I don't think I could do a night shift now- this body is just too old, ha,ha!

Worked the night shift (9 in the evening to 6 in the morning) for about a year and a half, and I was a ****ing zombie! Slept all day, had little to no social life, and more money than I had time to spend! The wintertime was the hardest. Sometimes I didn't see daylight for days! And when you are clinically winter depressed, that's not a good (or healthy) thing! In the end I had to quit that job, I was starting to feel strange, and I rarely saw any other people! It wasn't worth it, though the money was good.

I work four days on, four days off...one of my shifts each rotation is a night shift...and a dosy...7PM - 7AM...ouch...a 12 hour back shift. My four days entail 7A-7P, 7A-7P, 7P-7A, 7P- Midnight...then four days off, then do it again. The one backshift is a bugger, but not too too bad to get through just one. You're simply just not supposed to be up a 4 AM...a tough one Mots...muscle through it and look to move on whenever possible. * I notice a big difference now that I'm 36...hurts a bit more...often get a headache from the lack of sleep.

A few years ago I had lost my job and was running out of money so I took a part-time job at a video store. Then, a few weeks later I accepted a full-time position elsewhere. But I kept the job at the video store working nights for about 6 months. During that time I had no days off and 3 days of the week I worked 16-hour days. Also, because I was usually the only male on duty at night the video store stuck me in the back in the adult section. So I got to deal with all the wackos at 3 in the morning shopping for porn. That was easily the worst 6 months of my life. I was always tired, never had any free time, absolutely no social life, and pretty much wanted to kill myself every day. I have all the respect in the world for people who can endure that type of work schedule.
