Nightmares From The Night Shift: 40k in Debt gone, Quality of Life found (By @crownRingo)


“Nightmares are still considered Dreams” –Me I went from putting on my latex gloves to scrub sh!t stained toilets and throwing away other grown men’s underwear to being completely debt free and running my own business. Let me give you a timeline of how it all went down… December 2015: I quit my job teaching making $45k at a local ... Read More »

Nightmares From The Night Shift: @Five5InSocks


First off let me say that I did not choose this shift. Wouldn’t have chosen it if given an option. But I guess my bills made me take it. Humans are not nocturnal. We’re not made for this. Between 2am-5am, it’s hilarious to walk around the room and see people. They legit look like zombies. Laughing to themselves. Playing catch. Weird ... Read More »

Nightmares From The Night Shift: @WorldWideHarris x @Desidamack


@WorldWideHarris Let’s see I’ve been working the night shift at UPS for roughly 3 years now and after reading a few other’s “Nightmares” I don’t understand the slander cause honestly I find the night shift to be rather rewarding. I guess I have it made, working alongside one of my best friends of 10 years. We not only get our ... Read More »

Nightmares From The Night Shift: @Lindsey_Dylan & @CallMe_T_Smith


@Lindsey_Dylan When I was in high school I dreamt of working night shift. It sounded great I mean I already stayed up till the sun rise anyway and I hated waking up early. Seemed like a perfect fit to me. Was I sadly mistaken.  I learned real quick that there’s a big difference between staying up partying; hanging with friends ... Read More »

Nightmares From The Night Shift: @Ummheyboo & @ESparkz610


@ummheyboo Oh my gosh. Where do I start? Let start with the lack of sleep. Naturally, we’re not nocturnal creatures so the adjustment alone is painful. In my experience, your body never fully transitions to working overnight because you have off days (where you’re forced to be on everyone else’s schedule if you need to handle business or hang out) ...

Nightmares From The Night Shift (By @Ebbie_Badd)


Four 10 – hour shifts, Monday – Thursday and every weekend off. For a loner like myself this is perfect right? WRONG! The shit is wack! For the first few months it was cool. My co-worker didn’t bother me, I didn’t bother her, and we both minded our business. You find things to occupy your time like listening to music, ... Read More »

Nightmares From The Night Shift: @Chino_Banks


It’s 8:56 pm and the sun is setting. Mickey Factz “740 Park Avenue” is in my headphones as I walk into the place I spend half my day. Well, 10 hours of my 24, but you get the point. I walk past the normal faces but I keep my head down because I’m just trying to get my mind ready for what’s ... Read More »

Nightmares From The Night Shift: @SmoothShawon


I did it to myself twice. This is the 2nd time. One summer home from college, I got a job overnight at Target unloading shipment and such. I hated every second of it, I used to get mad that people would come buy stuff lol. Vowed never to do it again. So I got a chance to work overnight again. ... Read More »

Nightmares From the Night Shift: @IceColdBilly


So I’m gonna give you guys a little back story first. My 10-month-old daughter has a heart condition and she’s had a couple open-heart surgeries already. This is by no means a sob story because she is getting bigger, stronger, and smarter by the day. Long story short, we don’t trust strangers to watch our child. I’m not cut out ... Read More »

Nightmares From The Night Shift: @Esparkz610


Good morning did you sleep well ? If you did f*ck you and if you didn’t f*ck you for not taking the opportunity to sleep good….. I just got off work. Nothing worse than 3rd shift because while you’re trying focus on staying awake through the night your mind races. You think of everything from that girl that had the fat ass in ... Read More »

Nightmares From The Night Shift: @Dee_Smith2


Night shift…. it sounds great, right? You already love staying up until 4 or 5 in the morning and sleeping in until 12 – alright maybe 1…or 2 , so how bad could working night shift really be? All your friends that work day shift gotta be in bed by 10 on a Sunday night for work the next day ... Read More »

Nightmares From The Night Shift: @SPANKmeLATERR


Working 12am-8am sounds sweet  huh? Well me thinking since I’m forever alone and one of my very few issues in life is falling asleep by myself  that this was the PERFECT job for me… at the time I thought that baby jesus himself started this concierge jump off just for my light skinned ass. I soon realized that, even with ... Read More »

Nightmares From The Night Shift: @InEyeAleE


I’ve been on night shift for most of my adult working life. Club security. Private security. Corporate security. Selling hot dogs on sketchy Detroit corners, you name it, I’ve done it. If I haven’t, I’ll lie and say I have. There is an interesting dichotomy of pre-noon activities versus post midnight life. Especially when compiling actually having to do normal ... Read More »

Nightmares From The Night Shift: @WhoseDre & @MicRNS


Here’s more Nightmares From The Night Shift. May god bless you all @WhoseDre Nerd, the night shift is letting the devil in. While people are having nightmares in their sleep, we living it. People count sheep at night we counting street sweepers and car alarms during the day. You sometimes go to work not knowing what day it is. While ... Read More »

Nightmares from the night shift: @Cbankz


Working night shift will take your soul. It’s really the worst thing ever created. Yeah, your paying the bills and feeding your family but at the same time every once of hope and ambition is being drained out of your body. I did it for 4 years and I will never do it again. I rather do home invasions. So ... Read More »
