Ahhhhhhhhh.......today onwards for the next two weeks me on the "Graveyard Shift".. feels really strange to be in an office with no one around you (actaully there is this ONE other guy), ......(this shift has only 2 members working in a floor otherwise occupied by approximately 150 people)
I can actually hear my own echo(or are they jus voices in ma head?)
Since the shift allows me to get into "CONTEMPLATIVE" mode as opposed to the more usual"NONSENSE" mode...... A few random thoughts.....
The Graveyard shift in a lot of ways symbolises life itself (atleast in my case).........
- We do something for our entire lives that we wouldnt hav ever done if it werent for the money
- We are surrounded by lotsa high tech ( in my case low tech) but fewer and fewer humans..
- Empty spaces all round.
- We wouldnt be able to get thru this awake if it werent for tea/coffee .....(and in some call centres........SEX.... Darn, there is'nt much of that here,in fact there is NONE at all.....) But then again.each organisation has its own ways of employee retention
A LITTLE BIT OF LONELINESS IS A VERY DANGEROUS THING
