    The poll is flawed because it presumes that everyone should go to bed at the same time.

    What is sleep? (Joke option for Larlar)
    I like to think of myself as exactly adapted to a different timezone.

    (I've yet to find out which timezone that is).

    One day is a third of a year? Sounds about right.

    (I actually do think I would fare better on Mars, that extra 37 minutes could come in extremely handy when I want to wash my hair before going to bed).

    As someone who often works a combination of 5:30am - 2:30pm, 10:00am - 7:00pm, and 2:00pm - 11:00pm shifts in the same week: my sleep schedule is non-existent. Throw the occasional 9:00pm - 6:00am overnight in there for good measure. Oh! And make sure I work that closing shift right before the mandatory 5:00am quarterly meetings!

    ... Huh.

    When you explode, be sure to take out the management at whatever place you're working. They deserve it.

    I'm non-salary retail management so I've been doing this for years. The company realized how screwed up it is and went to a set shift (but not set days off) for associates but that doesn't apply to the leadership team. I could tough it out better when I was in my twenties but it's gotten a lot tougher as I've gotten older.

    Scheduling is the primary reason I'm seeking other employment.

    it's also spectacularly unhealthy. All kinds of studies are showing that inconsistent shift work drastically increase risks for all kinds of illnesses and decrease expected life span by like 10-20 years

    Oh yeah - I knew that being a diesel mechanic and being exposed to all the chemicals and vapors that come along with that was probably going to take a decade off my lifespan, and then I went and worked night shift in fast food for four years straight... I knew I probably wasn't going to break 80, but now 70 is looking doubtful!

    Ideally I'm in the process of getting to sleep by nine because I have to get up between 5:10 (if I want a cooked breakfast) and 5:30 (if I want to rush out of the door with a slice of bread in my mouth)

    I'm pretty sure that my cats manoeuvre my legs into uncomfortable positions in the night so that I start stirring at half four due to knee twinges, though

    They were doing that at the Walmart I worked at and pushing a corp plan of less overturn. So they failed both as I said to them and to my not manager giving people a set schedule with defined times is the goal. Don't do 1800-2100 for 3 days and give them the 10 hour shifts on the weekend it's not going to work [I tired my best to help people and work with what I was given from him after he fired me he was a total silly goose to them and nearly everyone quit. it's not the first time something like this has happened to him}

    I feel the worst job/sleep time I had was I had to be at work by 2am till 11am
    So I would go to sleep at 2 or 3 in the afternoon and this was in the Phoenix blob. I was often tired half asleep and other things but this was also an example of idiot managers. How can you plan for a heavy day and mess up so bad I had to work 24+ hours in a row {I really don't remember how much I worked that day} To clean and fix it

    I really felt the day was wasted working that job as I was either asleep or there {little would I know how I got ran over the coals in the other extreme}

    Can we all at least agree that people who wake up 2 hours early to exercise while right thinking people are in bed or in bars are nutters?

    I naturally wake up between 4:30 and 5 no matter what I got up to the day before, so if I'm not in bed by nine there will be Problems.

    I went to an 8:40 showtime with friends on Saturday night and I still feel like I'm about to die because I can't sleep in to make up for it.

    I blame the farm.

    I go to bed 7-8 hours before I need to get up. On weekdays I wake up at 6:00, so I go to bed between 10-11. On weekends I can stay up later but I usually don’t because I’m getting old and I’m sleepy long before midnight.

    no, because the gym is swamped with people after 5. I'm at work 10 hrs a day and I don't have time to do a 30-45 minute workout over the course of 2 hours.

    I’m naturally a night owl but I’ve been getting better at going to bed before midnight lately. I still don’t wake up any earlier without setting a bunch of alarms, though (my natural wake up time is around 9 am without alarms).

    Saturday I couldn’t fall asleep until 6 am. I got to sleep in a bit (I love that the kids are old enough to go watch tv by themselves instead of disturbing us) but I still was up by 10:30 am, that was rough.

    Fortunately my gym thins out nicely at around 10pm.

    I employ an extreme night owl, and I recently managed to get her on a schedule that's all 12-9 shifts.

    It turns out that people get a lot more work done when they're not completely brain fogged for twenty hours a week!

    I don't know why anyone pays me to be at work before 9am. You are getting, at best, 40% of what I am capable of.

    You say that, but what I didn't mention is that I come in early to go through everyone's drawers and steal any candy that I find in there.

    honestly I'd probably find that a fair trade.

    At least three people in my last office used to keep a box of chocolate digestives on their desk to assuage my boss when he was on a low-blood-sugar pre-tanty prowl.

    I do two 0700 to 1700 , 1300 to 2300 and 2200 to 0700 shifts per set.

    I had a pretty good sleeping pattern sorted but then we had a kid and it's all gone wrong.

    It's 2315 here and I've got to get up at 0530 for work but I can't sleep because my son has a cold and my wife has already done her fair share of late nights.

    At least the night shifts are easier now.

    I mean, I can't think of a single other reason why anyone would go through the trouble of becoming a manager. It's the long con.

    I did because I felt I could do it. As many of the people I have seen promoted to manager spots while at Walmart and lesser when I was at the casino were all non threatening as in they do not threaten my position or job in any way and will not outdo me. In spite of all the sabotage and shit my not manager gave me I still did a good job.

    The candy at Walmart was locked up you could either pop of the lock {it was a file cabinet} or unlock it if you had the keys
    Sadly most of the candy was the bulk variety ones so you would be left with smarties and pink gum

    I sometimes fall asleep in my chair with the lights, computer and TV on. Perk up around 3am and get to bed.

    I sort of like keeping all the hours past bedtime for staying up. I'm stealing time from a jealous and powerful time god. There's never any downside.

    ...Unless getting up at noon is like, not okay or something.
