I have been working the graveyard shift for as long as I can remember. I admit, it's not easy but working at night have some perks too.
No Traffic. You report for work just when everyone is home. Less vehicle on the streets means less traffic and the faster you reach your destination.
No Traffic Enforcers. I take the public transportation when I go to work. During the day, buses and jeepneys are not allowed to unload in the corner of Buendia and Ayala. But at night, I can get off there and walk a few steps to the office. Hassle free!
Extra Pay. Working at night meaning getting paid a night differential or a night shift allowance. More money for shopping!
Quality time for the Kids. Who says you can't spend time with your kids when you work at night? When my daughter was younger then, I get home just in time for her to prepare for her kindergarten class. I still had enough time to give her a bath, fix her stuff and see her off to school. When she was older, she gets home just in time for me to wake up and prepare for work. We eat dinner together and I still get the time to check her assignment before I leave for work.
Time for School Programs. If I had been working in the morning shift then, I wouldn't be able to watch my daughter sing in the school program or attend a few meetings in school. But since I work at nights, I can very well go directly to her school and attend a few school activities. All I need is just a Caramel Frappuccino to keep me awake.
