That's awesome. What do you do? I wish our school had uniforms because I would wear them too.

I couldn't see myself working a midnight shift. Is it hard working midnights?

No it isnt. Best time actually cuz things are more laid back and there's few people around as a general rule.

I agree with Marlinman. I get a 20% shift differential for working this shift and I love it. I mean, look at you all. it's late and you're still up! Some of us just have a biological clock that runs on a different time schedule. I have always been a late nighter, as two of my three kids. When I worked days......and I did for a long time while my kids were not old enough to be left alone.......I was always exhausted. I couldn't go to bed at a decent hour and it was terrible. I worked nights before I was married and had kids. I went on the day shift after I got married and continued to work days until my youngest was 17 years old. I can't tell you how happy I was when I was finally able to go back to nights. This is just where I belong. More money, less hassles, better comraderie with my co-workers and with other departments. My co-workers and I go shooting together (with me and my guns as hostess), know each other's families and often text each other at all hours of the day and night.
Also, my days are free for any appointments I might need to go to. I know I need to sleep but I can sleep either morning until mid afternoon or early afternoon until I need to go to work.
I really like my job, my shift, my co-workers and the place I work for. I consider myself very lucky.

That biological clock is what makes trucking so good for me. That and the freedom and pretty much being my own man.
