What’s that noise?
A lawn mower?
A bloody lawn mower?
What’s the time?
Who starts their bloody lawn mower at midnight?
What an absolute moron.
Why doesn’t everyone value my need for sleep as much as I do?
Hang on
Why is it so light?
Who left the light on?
Jen doesn’t usually leave the light on.
I’ll give her a little shove, she might have nodded off reading.
Hmmm she’s not there.
So the light’s on, some doofus is mowing his grass and it’s nearly midnight.
What the hell is going on?
Oh yeah, first night shift back from six weeks leave.
I got home two hours ago and it’s 11:53AM!

Gotta be up early tomorrow. No need to set the alarm usually awake by 5:30 anyway
Wow just over an hours sleep, nice effort. Go back to sleep
Are you kidding? Shit I’m going to be tired tomorrow. Go back to sleep, wake up at 6am Nope still don’t need the alarm
WHAT? This is ridiculous. Nope still don’t need alarm
Wow you really excelled this time. Shit less than two hours before I have to be awake. Going to be a very long day.
What? Not going to let me go back to sleep now?
Come on, this is bullshit. I need sleep.
If I set the alarm will you let me get an hour sleep?
BLOODY HELL!! Let me sleep, give me an hour, come on!!
Oh shit I’m late.
