anyone else like working nights, weekends and holidays ?
I have always really enjoyed not being part of the herd

1. I work all of the above.
Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't.
We get paid extra for holidays, the only time I get any overtime so sometimes I offer to work those days.

The nature of my job forces me to work nights and weekends. I am usually a second shift guy, just because of the field I am in.
I am use to it. I am not a morning person so I guess the job fits me.

2. I prefer to have my time of work when most other people are working
I am appalled when I have to venture out in the daytime world - the crowds, the traffic - YUCK

3. Yes
There are no birthdays, holidays, or weekends in the airlines (well, maybe weekends when you have enough seniority)! Where do you work? And, yes, it is rather nice, sometimes, not being part of the herd! ;-)

5. I am in the IT industry
by the way, I have a great deal of admiration for the airline personnel - it amazes me what they do and they don't receive near the credit they deserve

4. I did. I really did. When I did.
Now I work from home, but I still tend to do most of my work at night.

7. I used to work
midnights 11pm--7am, loved it. In the morning
if I had something to do I did it then went home to bed,
if nothing to do went home, slept then took care of biz
in the afternoon.

9. Yes, and I would love to tell you why.
Because nobody is bothering me and I can crank stuff out. Sometimes I stay in the office until 8:00 or 9:00 o'clock.

I plan every day pretty well but then people start calling, dropping by, and shit blows up. All of my best laid plans turn to shit.

Saturdays and Sundays are my most productive days.

I dare say, several people a week end up standing there wondering why they got a fax from me at 6:00 on Sunday night!

;)

10. I work nights.
Sometimes I get a little fried, but it cured me of insomnia and it pays better. (Plus, a slower pace.) :D
