I worked in a diner for 10 years and it was mega stress all of the time.
- I enjoyed the job a great deal.
I like working in the kitchen and the fast pace of the diner was great in the beginning. It was like a constant Vibe the whole time I was at work and the shift ended quickly because the night flew by fast. In the morning I was filled with energy and I had a tough time sleeping. I was getting two or three hours of sleep every night and the lack of good rest was affecting me poorly. The doctor suggested relaxing and perhaps going to a daytime shift so my body could get back on the natural circadian rhythm. I thought that was a pretty good idea too. When I mentioned going to day shift to my boss, the guy went berserk and threatened to fire me if I did not work at night. I had to look for a different job before I could quit the one at the diner. Believe it or not, I was making really good money there. I put my resume online and a marijuana dispensary manager contacted me for an interview. The manager of the marijuana dispensary wanted me to work during the day and the job was perfect. I went to the marijuana dispensary a couple of days later for an interview. The manager seemed really flexible and kind. I talked with her about working nights and she told me that she had worked nights for 15 years before getting the job as the manager at the marijuana dispensary.
