Uggg. So I work rotating shift work where we cover with people at work 16 hours and then the last 8 is on call. Evening shift (3pm -11pm) is always the person on call. And this week is my stretch of evening shift, evening shift is a stretch of seven shifts in a row (Monday-Sunday) technically not being done because of being on call until 7am Monday morning. Then getting Monday and Tuesday off before being expected to be there at 7 am Wednesday for 5 day shifts (7am- 3pm). anyway i think this 'falling back' of the clocks this weekend screwed me over. I'd already had to stay late (2 hours) to fix a workstation whose hard drive decided that it had enough and quit. then that extra hour to sleep in that everyone else was so excited about ment an extra hour of being on call overnight. Well i got a phone call from work saying both control positions in a system went down (no control means no monitoring which depending on the system can potentially be very dangerous in air traffic control systems and unfortunately for me it was one of those systems). i got this call at the new 5:30a, which would have been 6:30a without time change and most things will be ok for half an hour until day shift comes in and i wouldn't have gotten called since most of us live more than half hour away and wouldn't be in before day shift anyways. Sad. but good thing work gave me one of the trucks for the weekend with my broken wheels because the guy i would have bummed a ride home from wouldn't have waited the 2 hours i had to stay late last night. I really hope tonight is quiet and that i can leave on time and leave the truck at work and get a ride home tonight so that i don't have to get up and take the truck in for 8 am on Monday. The boyfriend doesn't need his car on the midnight so if i get called out i can take his but he was busy on the weekend and needed his car and couldn't drive me to work.
So tired. So very tired
