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.
