I've had this psych/physiological issue for years where if I go to bed too early (typically any time before midnight), I WILL NOT sleep for the entire night (often waking up between 2 and 3 AM), and be unable to get back to sleep after waking up. So I hate morning shifts.Really?!
I despise the afternoon shifts. Like, 1pm-10pm?
Get home by 11 or 11:30pm, watch a movie, have a drink...go to sleep by 1 or 2am. Then you get up at 10am or so then have but an hour...hour and a 1/2...before leaving for work again.
I hated 2nd shift with a passion!!! It's even a Pet Peeve.
"Bill, can you work 2nd shift for Lamont tomorrow?"
"No but, I can work 1st for Felicia and SHE can work 2nd....DUH!"
this made me think of an article i read on cracked.com: http://www.cracked.com/article_19121_7-basic-things-you-wont-believe-youre-all-doing-wrong.htmlI've had this psych/physiological issue for years where if I go to bed too early (typically any time before midnight), I WILL NOT sleep for the entire night (often waking up between 2 and 3 AM), and be unable to get back to sleep after waking up.

I have been driving a stick shift for the past 15 years, and my mom is one of these people. I very rarely get loud, swear or get hostile with my mom, but one day not that long ago she was taking me to get my car from the garage and she stopped when she finally made it under the bumper of the truck in front of us. I may have said something along the lines of "WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU DOING YOU BATTY WOMAN!!!! ARE YOU TRYING TO GIVE ME AN ANURSIM???!!!" I quickly regained control of myself and explained to my mother that she has no idea what the guy in front of us is going to do, if he drifts back and hits her car, it will be her fault. Also, what if the person behind us isn't paying attention and hits us, that would push us into the truck, and that would be our fault too. I agree with this pet peeve, everyone should stay a safe distance behind the person in front of them regardless. If you don't, you are an idiot, seriously. You are not going to get to where you are going any faster, trust me dipshit, if anything you are going to make things worse because you will piss of the guy in front of you and they will go just a little bitty bit under the speed limit just to piss you off too...I may have already said this, but: When you're stopped on a positive incline (uphill) and someone stops RIGHT ON YOUR ASS. Like, you can't see their headlights in ANY mirror.
Note: If you do not/have not driven stick, you may not know my rage. You may also be one of these people. Kindly stop. We (stick drivers) hate you.
