Night shift is its own culture everywhere lol. I worked nights at Winco for a little over a year, and going back to day shift was weird - everyone was all well-dressed and sober, there were normal people out with their normal families, no one's card was getting declined, everyone was writing good checks, and I only had to threaten to call security about once a week as opposed to once a shift - it took some getting used to, man. It was weird.


Commandrew87

Sounds dull. Everyone knows night shift is the party shift.


18wheelsoffury

In my job, day shift is a bitch. Traffic, everybody is in a bitchy mood, everybody is fuckin loud. Night shift is a completely different world. Crackheads, some guy beating his dick in the middle of the street, taco stands, the second coming of Jesus guy is quiet for some odd reason, you can hear things from miles away, random fireworks, everybody is either calm or losing their shit... no in between, the occasional guy in sweatpants buying vaseline at the store for some reason...


-Nigerian_Princess-

That sounds to me like a normal walk through downtown Portland.


ODSM

Is it weird that I'd rather deal with the crackheads than the bitchy dayshift people? Also...dayshift = crash reports, crash reports for as far as the eye can see.


18wheelsoffury

Crackheads make more sense when they talk than most day shift people. Day shift, you hear shit like "I just feel like we should explore ourselves and get in touch with our spirit" Crackheads say shit like "I'MA PUT THIS PINECONE UP MY ASS!" Aight, I'm gonna watch while I eat my breakfast burrito at 02:00.


The_Gurl_Among_You

Mid shift ftw


UnbanSkullclamp420

I thought my caffeine intake was bad before going to nights, now six shots of espresso get me started, two monsters get me through the middle of my 12 hour shift and I need usually one or two cups of coffee when I get off work.


xJeremy

How's the constant arrhythmia treating you?


Section225

Holy shit In the interest of your heart health, I would start weaning back off of that much. You're talking like 1,000+ milligrams of caffeine a day. Eventually, get to where you wake up (good sleep is important, but it's own topic) and don't consume caffeine for two to three hours...your brain makes a chemical naturally to wake you up, and caffeine right away eventually makes the brain stop producing it. That's why real coffee/caffeine addicts get headaches when they don't get their caffeine like normal. Besides that, get to a normal level (cup or two of coffee and one energy drink is my max intake a day, one energy drink is normal though. You do whatever though) and stick to it. I like to wait till around 9 or 10 after waking up in the late afternoon and starting work at 7, then sip the energy drink over 3 or 4 hours or so.


Chatner2k

I'd like to add. I've recently been trying out things like Gfuel over traditional energy drinks like redbull and I find I don't crash nearly as hard from Gfuel and it seems to give me a more consistent stream of energy whereas redbull makes me gittery as fuck for an hour or two. Also I can remake those shaker videos where it looks like I'm jerkin' it.


Section225

Plz send link n nudes


Chatner2k

[I got you boo](https://youtu.be/R7Yt5_lgbO8) You can totally see my "content" over at my onlyfans. Offering 50% so it's only $25 a month! Totally crazy good deal, never happens definitely doesn't entitle you to only ppv ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


Plotlines

GFuel is highly underrated for a source of caffeine without the crash or the god awful affects on your body that other energy drinks have


Chatner2k

It's also pretty cheap comparatively. They had BOGO recently. Two tubs for $35 is a steal.


UnbanSkullclamp420

Haha caffeine go brrr. Yeah man it’s bad. Did I mention that I don’t even feel jittery or energetic during my shifts? Caffeine doesn’t do anything to me because I am caffeine. My sergeant told me the same thing ironically enough but yeah I’ve been trying to slow it down a bit. Nicotine has been helping but I figured either a heart attack or mouth cancer would kill me regardless if the myriad of other stuff doesn’t get me. But hey at least I get that benefits package and OT right?


Section225

I live for the OT baby And besides, could be worse, you could be hammered drunk at work like that Aurora, Colorado cop


Sam2734

Worse? Or better...?


Obvious_Inspector_65

I don't want to nag you and you may not feel the effects of caffeine but it could still be causing harm to your system. Just take care of yourself.


Sam2734

Yeah, gotta live long enough to enjoy that sweet sweet pension


KaBar42

> You're talking like 1,000+ milligrams of caffeine a day. For context: The FDA cites the maximum amount of caffeine most adults can safely consume in one day at 400 mg. Or basically only one Bang/Reign plus one of the smaller Red Bull cans, certain Monster Dew energy drinks, Coke coffee energy drink or about five 12 oz Sunkists. https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/spilling-beans-how-much-caffeine-too-much


18wheelsoffury

Looks like I'm well within that range then, one Bang or Reign and I'm good for the rest of the night. I'll take a nap if it's not hitting right.


ACNordstrom11

Awww I read 12 12oz sunkist cans, now I'm bummed.


KaBar42

That would be about 240 mg of caffeine.


reddita51

I've learned that there's a point of caffeine intake (around 500-600mg for me) where taking more doesn't make me any less tired it just makes my heart more arrhythmic and painful

Night shift= No banks being robbed no schools being shoot


SandsofFlowingTime

Or, big brain idea here. We get rid of schools and banks, so that there are no more schools to shoot and no more banks to rob. I can't see this ever going horribly wrong...


[deleted]

[удалено]


SandsofFlowingTime

Yeah, that /s was definitely needed. Should we ban the black market too so people can't get guns illegally?


GuineaPig352

Ban money so theirs nothing to buy then illegally with. While we’re at it ban selling so theirs also nothing to buy


SandsofFlowingTime

Now that's a good idea, it might actually work


RussianBotOnUnicycle

Inflation will have that covered soon enough


SandsofFlowingTime

Yeah, that will also work. Almost forgot about it


SaltWaterGator

“What the hell, why did our illiteracy rate just shoot up 80% after we defunded public education??”


SandsofFlowingTime

Because the teachers aren't doing their jobs well enough. Let's defund them even further so that they start teaching better


wr3decoy

The U.S. pays more per pupil than most developed nations. If funding fixed the problem it would have been solved already.


SaltWaterGator

Yeah and why do we need so many teachers anyway? We don’t need a teacher for every 20, 1 for every 200 sounds good


SandsofFlowingTime

1 for every 200 sounds too similar to college. Let's go for at least 1 teacher per 1000 students


Diablo_Unmasked

I mean, most schools are doing online only now where im at, and my current bank is completely online. So yeah, lets close schools and banks.


_Awoken_

🤣


Not_The_Real_Jake

Defund the schools and banks so they don't get shot and robbed!


Prikkasaurus_Rex

Bro imagine some idiot goes to shoot up a school at night. Not shoot anyone, but literally just to shoot the school itself. That's some Florida man shit right there.


ThomasCrowley1989

"How come no one is screaming and running"


The_Real_Opie

Yeah so... I've taken that call before. Someone blasted out the windows of the middle school at about 11pm.


Prikkasaurus_Rex

Boof. Guessing they were never caught?


_Awoken_

😂


Sam2734

Eh we have gas station robberies, drug store burglaries, etc. In my jurisdiction mids has more aerious calls than day work. But day work has more calls in general. Quality of quantity, always


Larky17

We're about to begin 48/96 shifts starting January 1st next year. This can only end up going one of two ways..


Black_N_Blue_Irish

*snorts cocaine* Yeah it’s pretty nice to work all the time


Section225

Too short lasting. Methamphetamine is the way to get through a 96 hour shift


JACCO2008

Some of my best experiences/stories come from meth heads at the end of a multi-day bender. The sad part is that for people who haven't seen it the story just sounds weird and unfunny.


Black_N_Blue_Irish

*snorts 5 hour energy*


Section225

I like to drop a 5 hour energy into a 20oz can of red bull and chug it like an Irish car bomb


M4A1SOPMOD

My heart skipped a few beats just reading that Sarnt


Black_N_Blue_Irish

*Singularity forms* *consuming anything in a three mile radius* that’s fuckin crazy

dadphobia

I do it in the coast guard. It’s truly awful.


cgvet9702

We had a sweet port/starboard rotation: straight panama 2 on 2 off sliding weekends. New command comes in and next thing you know, we're day working on our offgoing days instead of getting cut loose for liberty.


dadphobia

Straight up Port and Starboard isn’t too bad if it’s a low op tempo, but my unit’s pretty hard charging and it literally says in the commandant’s instructions “this is not a recommended duty rotation schedule for high op tempo units.” What you just said is half the problem with the coast guard. Totally up to the command how much they want to squeeze out of you.


cgvet9702

Yup. Keep in mind, though, I'm speaking about 20+ years ago. I have no idea of the state of things in the coast guard these days.


dadphobia

Yeah well by the sounds of it I’d bet you not much has changed haha At my station small we share a building with the 1 in 3 fire department and the 8hr shift cops’ marine units, and it’s hard not to hate it when I get to watch three crews come and go before I get to go home, all the while getting paid close to 3x what we make, plus all our benefits. And they wonder why we’re having a hard time with retention/recruiting.


cgvet9702

I was at D13 Lifeboat stations my whole hitch. We were so busy in the summer that the time flew, but winter was slow and nobody wanted to stay and work when they should be on liberty. Still one of the top two jobs I ever had in my life. I loved it


Tacotimeeh

I have to do it for my job, you adapt pretty quickly to it.

You underestimate the power of bang energy


ACNordstrom11

That sounds like my buddy who works for a private emt company. And it's why I do local trucking and not long haul.


DiscoLawls

Ah dark souls and night shift go so well together though.


smashreigh

I always tell people my body prefers dayshift but my personality prefers nightshift.


Liveyourlife365

Night shift EMS is lit, thanks for having our back.


NecessaryEvil66

Stfu bus driver and check my subject’s vitals so he doesn’t get refused at booking. Jk, as former night shifter EMS, I appreciate you guys and always coming out to our stuff.


KielGreenGiant

Don't have to worry about night shift if you work 24 hours and just sleep all night.

Fit as a fiddle 🥴
