Goodbye Days - Hello Nights

Here we go again. A sense of deja vu falls over me as the boss approaches and waves me aside. "Would you be willing to go on nights for the rest of the week?" (where have I heard this before.....)
"What hours and which days?" 4:30p.m. to 3 a.m. Wednesday-Friday.
So not only have I been pulled from the 3 new machines I just started running in December, to go back to my old department for the last 10 days, now I am headed back to nights to try and clean up the scheduling fiasco and get the orders finished for them. Let's hope the State Patrol is on the other side of the state this week, because last time I did a day to night swap without an adjustment period I saw 8 lanes instead of 4 on the drive home.

Now THAT is a weird shift...!
I've done DAYS...and I've done NIGHTS, but NEVER anything like that.

Heck, I;ve even done doen days that turn INTO nights...and vice versa...LOL.
EIGHT lanes instead of FOUR?
Well, plenty of room to maneuver then, right?

Srriously, you take it easy out there...and get enough sleep.

Stay safe.
