This is the first night of working the night shift in a long time. I thought I would work a full night, as decent paychecks go. But, at 12:30 AM, my boss said, That’s It! Go home. I thought to myself, Well Damn! It’s only halfway through the night. Hmmm, maybe tonight will be a full night. If not, then I’ll have to request that I go back on dayshift. Because I’m not going to settle for 5 hours a night and a tiny paycheck and assume that everything is going to be hunky-dory. The world does not work that way, and neither do I.
