A Day in the Life of a Night-Shift Nurse’s Spouse/Roommate

Kati Kleber (aka Nurse Eye Roll) knows what it’s like to live among night-shift nurses. In fact, she’s broken a typical day down into fragments that are so accurate, it’s kind of terrifying: 

0830: Your nursey spouse/roommate gets home after their shift.

 

0832: While you’re trying to eat breakfast, they start telling you about their shift.

 

0835: They’re fighting to stay awake when you start talking.

 

0837: Um, yeah. They’re done.

 

1200: You come home for lunch ever so quietly.

 

1210: Mid-lunch break, your neighbor starts to mow his lawn and your nurse wakes up.

 

1212: Now they’re starving and eat the first 12 things they see.

 

1217: Back to bed!

 

1700: You get home from work and they’re just waking up, about to make their breakfast/dinner half asleep.

 

1730: You just got out of your work clothes and they’re headed to work.

 

0221: They send you 50 text messages about something crazy that just happened at work.
