Getting up 1/2 hr before going to bed...
« on: July 04, 2013, 07:15:40 pm »
I'm sure many of you in the UK and I'm sure some in Oz and NZ are familiar with the 4 Yorkshiremen.
Well Friday I truly have to get up a half hour before going to bed... I'll explain.
This past month I had to trade shifts with a coworker so he could get more experience during the day shift when our facility is fully staffed and production is running at a higher rate.

So up until this week, that was 4:30PM to 1:00AM.

But there's also this thing our facility does during the week of July 4, where you work 4 10 hour days in exchange for an extra day off during Christmas. So that makes my shift this week 4:30PM to 3:00AM since the evening shift works 2 hours later and the day shift works 2 hours earlier.

That puts me getting home around 3:30AM. I'll usually have a little something to eat watch some Youtube and I'll be actually forcing myself to go to sleep a little after 5:00AM

Also this week, my wife's Aunt who had been not doing well for a while passed away, and I had been asked by my wife's family to be one of the pallbearers with the burial on Saturday. 

I thought ok, won't be getting much sleep that night, but I can manage and sleep when I get back.

There was also a memorial/visitation service planned Friday evening and my wife asked if I could get off for that but I wasn't quite sure since I was the only one there. Another co-worker overheard me and said she wanted me to be with my wife that night and said she'd trade shifts with me.

So now on Friday, I have to be at work at 6:00AM meaning I truly will have to get up at 4:30 which is a half hour before I'd be going to bed.

And at this moment I am drinking coffee from a chipped cup, but did not have a cup of hot gravel for breakfast.

I hope you don't do anything important at work.  Like you better not have anything to do with a product that can kill if your part is not correct.
I feel for you though, good luck.
