    I'm working a night shift for the first time!!

    It's very exciting and I've had way too much caffeine, 'cause I don't want to fall asleep and wow!
    who else is on BYC in the middle of the night?

    My old man works the night shift, I'm disabled but I keep strange hours because of a neck injury. There is usually someone to talk to all through the night. Thats just one more thing I love about this site. Have you tried the chat room? They keep late hours there and everyone is really nice.

    DH & I started work this week. We got the night shift 9pm-5am.
    We work the front security gate at the local steel mill. Today is DH frist night and my 3rd. I think I will like it better this summer. Told DH it is not fair that When I go to work I can't ask him to some house chore cuz he goes to bed when I leave. He is part time I am full time.

    Quote:Oh girl, you gotta talk to him and you guys come up with some rules. I'm thinking if he is only working part time he would fill like he isn't pulling his weight and would want to do the chores around the house and even some cooking too. There is no shame in men doing housework and cooking. A partnership/marriage is 50/50 right? If I were you I would be angry about now{day three}. At my house if I make a list of what has to be done, Snakeman will do it, but if I do not make a list, nothing gets done. Maybe you guys could talk about it and come up with something that satisfies both of you. Good luck with your problem and let us know how it works out for ya'll.

    I love it when my husband works the night shift. There's so much more peace and quiet, best of all NO SNORING! [​IMG] There is always someone on BYC no matter what time it is.
