The Official I'm Stuck Working The Overnight Thread (10/2/05)

Hey everyone,

I thought I'd start a nice little thread considering I am stuck working on a wonderful Saturday night/Sunday morning from 11-7, and I'm sure at least a few of you up working or not partying, and thought I'd say hello and maybe discuss our collective bordom.

Yuck, I am very lucky to have a job where I can have my laptop, and I SHOULD be studying for a test.

Also I'm lucky I only have to work an overnight once a month, but it blows because normally I work at like 6 AM - 3 PM. Yuck.

Advantages to working the night shift:
  • No traffic at all.
  • You can't get cancer from moonlight.
  • You don't have to deal with the crazy people that come out during the day
  • You can get all the new DVD releases first (midnight releases).
  • All the coolest people in Otter are here at night.

Yikes unfortunatly, I DO have to deal with all the crazy people at night. I work at the University, and my job is pretty much to make sure the kids in my dorm aren't passing out/puking all over the place from being so drunk. So essentially I sit at the front door (and also swipe their University cards and sign in their guests) so that no one else in the city can get into the building. Last weekend we had a kid make quite a mess of our lobby, and had to be transported to the hosptial. Spectacular.

In fact, we get MORE traffic at night at this job than during the day... especially on weekends.

If you attend this school, get a new job. Unless it's a coed dorm. On second thought, you should still get a new job.

It would be hilarious if you put your penis in her mouth. She wakes up and you both have a good laugh.

It IS a Co-Ed Dorm... and my job compensates me with free housing, so I think the job's not too bad.

You get Internet access and you get to molest drunk college girls, so I guess you're right.

10.30PM to 7.00AM here at a tech support call center. Seeing as I don't actually take calls, I am very happy with my job.

I'm trying to come up with some other money making method while I'm sitting here. I used to play Online Poker, but now that I have a Mac, most of the clients aren't compatiable. So I've been reduced to searching for DVD and Video Game deals heh.

Update: She is now awake. I guess I was being too loud when I was doing her work.

I'm in the middle of my first full weekend off since June. I've been enjoying lots of alcohol, Red Sox - Yankees, TiVoed reruns, and wanton sex.
