It is no joke working long hours yet I do love and appreciate the time that I am able to put in I have been lucky to have things go in my own way within the job field and among other things.
I am also glad that I have a day off today as I have worked three straight twelve hour day shift assignments all in a row this past week and for part of the weekend.
Twelve hours goes so long during the entire morning, afternoon and into the evening I prefer the afternoon or night shift as there is a whole different frame of setting and the time rides by a little more quicker in comparison. I’ve always been more of an evening and night person I hate getting up so early in the morning but sometimes one has to do what one has to do when the situation calls for it.
I take what I can get when I can get it and it is nice that my supervisors are flexible enough to keep me and other employees in mind when offering schedules that are within our convenience.
I remember last year around October when I was begged by a supervisor as I was in the middle of work during a day shift of fourteen hours twice a week to accept and return to an additional weekend shift the following night to the cluster care (attending to a numerous set of patients/clients at a time without catering to just one on one) that I was already doing on another floor back up at and on the Alzheimer and Dementia unit of a facility where I worked at when I was travelling back and forth through out the New Jersey area because I was one of the only other few assistants there that was available and who was trained and authorized to give out the medication.
I did the shift.
Why not, I had the capacity, I enjoyed the night and I was getting paid for it the extra income served as more of an opportunity that was in my favor within the circumstance so I didn’t lack or lose out within anything.
I had gained.
Those certain few assholes over there in particular who had gotten intimidated by me since I was highly sufficient, without being able to be walked over, and that had tried to cause interference through underhanded trifles ended up needing me because it was vital for the patients there to receive their bedtime medicine.
And I just used the situation to my advantage and then a month or two later those same assholes were out of a job as the company had bought out the establishment that employed their part of the department.
What goes around had come back around and very quickly unto them!
