Things have changed. When I walked my department yesterday with the Assistant Manager I report to, he said, "my, your overheads are just about done. In fact, we were talking about how there really isn't anything for you to do." Which is what I told them a month and a half ago. Insanity has now left the building. When I first graduated from college, I worked nights as an auditor, going over numbers, making sure, accounting wise, everything was squeaky clean. I hated it. I'm a morning person, not a night person. I do not enjoy the Night Watch.
As a result of this manager's leaving, I will not be forced in to working a full week (40 hours) of overnights. I told them I'd work maybe 2 nights and then take vacation (I normally do take some vacation this time of the year because business is slow). When I told one of my fellow Department Managers this she said, "well, you can come over to my department and help me." To which I replied "no, I don't think so." I didn't spend my days pro-actively getting my department into shape just so I could spend some Night Watch hours getting the sockets in Electrical in order. I want to spend as little of my time as possible in Night Watch hell.
