Dear managers who make the schedule,
As you know, I've been working 3rd shift now for almost a year. As such, my sleep schedule has changed. Your daytime is now my night time, and vice versa.
You scheduled me until 6am on Friday, gave me Friday night off, and and have me in for 10am on Saturday. I tried staying up as long as I could on Friday. I made it until about 2pm. Set my alarm for 6pm, thinking I could take a nap, and still be able to sleep that night. Boy, how I was wrong. Here it is, 4am on Saturday, and I've spent the last 6 hours tossing and turning in bed.
My body is attuned to a different sleep pattern now. You have no idea how difficult it is to stray from that pattern. I'd need more than 1 night off in between an overnight and a day shift. You KNOW this. I've said it to you before. And yet you don't seem to care.
Well, I hope you don't expect me to be too functional past noon today. At Customer Service. This will be fun. Just remember, this is your own doing.
