You have to enjoy emails like this,

"Hello -

We did not get enough volunteers for the new OOH team. Would anyone like to consider volunteering to avoid having to force assign by inverse seniority? If so, please respond to this email by NOON on Wednesday, Oct. 25th."

that blows dude. tell Pam treeroot don't work no night shifts, kipper says so. i can't believe after 8 years on the job you are 4th from the bottom and not senior enough to get out of vampire shift. they must 1. pay well or 2. they are holding you hostage and threatening to kick your dog (cat) if you quit

if it's not safe to talk here, just say the secret code word

I have fallen asleep at the wheel probably sixty times or so this year. One of these days it will catch up to me. Isn't it funny how our society views drunk driving but looks the other way when it comes to working long hours and sleep deprivation. I made the descision not to go back to nights for my safety and the safety of others. Now I might be forced to work nights. I have tried taking a 15 min nap before I drive home and I don't wake up. It is nice to go home for a little bit before I have to go back to work...

One of my first jobs was at Dunkin Donuts. I was 16 years old. Part of the deal was that you had to work a late night shift on the weekends at least once a month, 11 p.m. - 7 a.m. So I'd go to school all day on Friday, go out and party with my friends Friday night, then show up at work and work until 7 the next morning. I would fall asleep at the wheel on the way home.

To stay awake, I'd open all the windows in the car (it was winter), blast AC/DC on the radio, punch myself, move around as much as possible, etc.

Don't envy you, dude.

Maybe you need to buy a house nearby so you can walk home.

I fell asleep walking once. I never fell down that I know of but I woke up in the parking lot and I couldn't remember how I got there.

You could move, or ever consider a new job . Sure sucks man. Reminds me of my friend Jason. Always stayed late at work. One night fell asleep after pulling a car into his bay. One of the managers came through the shop before closing down. Kinda freaked when he saw Jason sleeping.....

I am really close to selling everything and buying a small ranch in Montana.

Is 29 too young to retire?
