    Yeah I thought that was pretty funny.

    That is NOT the job you want to go to work even the slightest bit impaired though. Maybe they all should take speed just so they are awake and alert, might reduce accidents. LOL

    @DandDskeeto You’re kidding, right? I’m guessing that you have never tried to do a work shift in a manic state.

    You’re right !

    A I am not BiPolar ( so so manic states )

    B I went to great lengths to get educated thus not having the need for shift work.

    it’s simple… who would you want working for you someone clean and sober or someone stoned, drunk or hung over. No one wants their back being covered by someone who is not 100% there. Would you let a surgeon operate high? Even if he had just smoked a joint…. Not in a million years.
