  1. ha ha, these are awesome; totally spot on! I work night shift on a 4-1-2-7 schedule, 4 on, 1 off, 2 on, 7 off – I am always dog tired by the end of my 4th 12 hr shift, and let me tell ya – I couldn’t get through them without my awesome co-workers!

    1. Michelle, thanks for your like and comment! I work a rotating schedule, so I definitely feel it when I work a string of nights. By the time I get to the 4th shift I’m usually praying to be put on call!
