I often post at night (GMT) as my work timetable is a mixture of day & night shifts.

Would you consider me a friend on that basis? If not, I understand why.

yours, annesmiley - biggrin

Thank You, I will add you to my friends list. Btw, what do you do for a living, being up at night as you are? That's a cheeky question, no answer needed, if you don't feel the needsmiley - winkeye. I work for the NHS, so am often on nights, although I tend to be an 'owl' most of the timesmiley - smiley

Hello Fire, I'm doing fine, thanks, how are you? I'm in 'God's Own Country', aka Yorkshire. Although I'm not a native, I definitely feel at home here, most are as straight talking as me, so we tend to understand each other, even if the accent is hard to deciphersmiley - biggrin. Anyway, I've been here for quite a while.

Where are you at? I finished nights this am, but am still on 'night shift' today, maybe you have similar problems reorientating to days? Not great is it? Tend to eventually get back to days after about 5-7 days - that can only mean that I'm getting too old for this malarkeysmiley - evilgrin

Hi Graham,

You lucky, lucky man - 2-3 days? You must be married & have kids to be able (or have tosmiley - erm) turn around that quickly? I'm neither, so it tends to be hardersmiley - smiley. I take it you work for the prison service - must be stressful, but rewarding & interesting at the same time. My job is also, but the constant threat of physical violence doesn't rear it's head too often (however, it definitely can do).I've had my share of kicks & punches, it's really not nice. I much prefer a verbal abuse situation. I hate violence, especially towards myself. Although saying that, I have gone to bat for colleagues who have been physically assaulted (ie stepped in front of my colleague, but I've never retalliated physically).

Anyway, enough about work from me, but I'd be interested in what you have to deal with on a day-to-day basis. I'm sure you have some good stories to tell (no name, no pack drill, of course). Eeh, I'm just being nosy, reallysmiley - evilgrin

Frankie Boyle Joke:

English man walks into a Glagow pub & asks for a cider & blackcurrant.
The landlord replies "We don't do cocktails".

That's where I stand on Face book - I don't do it, although I've been pestered enough by friends & colleagues to join. Sometimes I feel left out of the loop, but I'm positively unphotogenic, & have refused to have my photo taken for a few years now. I'm not on the ward board, & my excuse is that, in line with the Aborigines, each photo steals a wee part of my soulsmiley - blush, I've so far got off with itsmiley - somersault.
It's amazing how many people let me off with thissmiley - erm, perhaps they feel it it is part of me basically taking the Michael, or that I only conform when I feel i should, I'm not sure

Pretty poor - been off sick, but hopefully on the way upsmiley - erm, not sure, but that's the aimsmiley - smiley

Hope you are well, and the family. Have you got any kids - I ask as I haven't - but more & more patients seem to be kids (with or without LDs): some seem to take to me like a leech, others just don't.

I may be asking an impossible/improbable question, but, do I fake it as being competent, or do i behave like the juvenille asshole I obviouosly am? PS, no legal backlash to any answer, as this is all off the recordsmiley - smiley
