Cosign. People who work the late shift are often miserable because no matter how much they try to change their sleep schedules, they can’t do it. That leads to Shift Work Disorder — chronic sleepiness, depression, increased accident proneness, physical effects like weight gain and increased risk of heart disease. Society has sympathy for these people. It’s only when the schedule is switched around and night owl patterns assert themselves that society disapproves. That disapproval is ridiculous, of course, and exists only because of the baseless lingering belief that people who get started early are motivated and people who don’t are lazy.
