I found myself in Wal-Mart at 0300 for no real reason ( and I still spent $200.00 go figure). In my area there is not much open at 0300 but Wal-Mart and Waffel House. So, I ask, what do you do on you off nights?

When I'm off work I don't like to even consider going anywhere.   I sit at home and enjoy as much privacy as I can muster,   I don't want to see anyone,  talk to anyone, go anywhere other than the kitchen or the bathroom,  and just watch Fox News to check out the progress or the lack there of the election,  or watch the History channel.


Now once in a great while if I have the extra money along with a little extra time like a three day vacation I will load up the family and take a trip somewhere with them just to have some quality time them.


But the majority of the time I just stay home.

It sounds ridiculous, but I always spent a lot of my off nights either woodworking in my outbuilding or playing video games.  Of course it always ticks my wife off because I'm not in bed.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that makes my wife mad like that,    she really doesn't get mad anymore,  she's come to understand that I can't just lay in bed all night after sleeping all day,   but sometimes I do still hear about it.

My husband and I have the same days off, and we might take a drive, or go to the store, The  strange thing about us both being on third shift  is that  between 10:30pm-11:00pm on our nights off we're so tired, we fall asleep. When its time to go back to work on 3rd shift, we are all mixed up again on our sleep.

My fiance & find outselves playing PS2 or watching rented movies on our nights off... Every once in a while we might go backroading at night. Rarely do we do the bar scene


Don't forget... the toes you step on today might be attached to the ass you'll be kissing tomorrow!

I play Call Of Duty 4 on my PS3 until my eyeballs start bugging out, then I get out my gilly suit and sneak around my yard scaring the hell out of my neighbors. And a few cats. And rabbits. And myself. Then, before the evil sun pops up, I slink back inside and put my cold feet on my wife, waking her up just a few minutes before her alarm goes off for work. Yeah, she doesn't like that

Man i hate my nights off i never know what to do. I end up renting alot of movies. if its the weekend i end up hanging out with my friends who are "day walkers". But for the most part it seems like there is nothing to do.

I SEEM TO KNOW WHATS ON EVERY CHANNEL, I KNOW WHEN MY WIFE GETS UP TO USE THE REST ROOM, I KNOW WHEN ALL THE NEIGHBORS ARE UP GETTING READY TO LEAVE FOR WORK, I EVEN HAVE IT DOWN TO THE "T" WHEN THE STREET LIGHTS TURN OFF. .......BUT I STARTED WALKING THE NEIGHBORHOOD ALOT, AND GETTING BETTER AT TIGER WOODS GOLF X-BOX...LOL.... AND I ACTUALLY HAND WRITE LETTERS TO MY FOLKS AND GRAND MOTHER. I CAN DO ALOT MORE PUSH-UPS NOW . I AT LEAST TRY TO EAT OUT WITH MY FAMILY ONE NIGHT THAT I AM OFF, AND THE NEXT WEEK I GET A NIGHT TO MY SELF WITH A BUDDY OF MINE.
