How are your hubbyies shifts decided? Do they switch off every year? Every month? Never?

My DH gets a new shift/ day off pick every year. Of course he always gets the stinky end of the stick. Blah.

Last year wasn't bad. Nights with Sunday and Monday off. He usually gets MUCH worse than that. Like Tuesday Wednesday off.

THIS YEAR he's on lite duty and didn't get a pick. If he did, like he SHOULD HAVE (don't get me started) he would have had days with weekends off. Not ever in my lifetime. He was assigned his spot by an angry hateful person who stuck him on 3-11 with Thursday and Friday off. BoooHiss....So the whole weekend while the kids are out of school he'll be working. Joy!

DH is #2 on a two-man department, so he works what the chief tells him to work. He has always liked working midnights, so working midnights doesn't bother him. He worked 8p-4a for quite a few years, but recently the chief switched his hours to 7p-3a. I think I liked 8-4 better...it's pushed dinner back an hour earlier and with the kids being older, there are days that we're out until late in the afternoon, so it's been a pinch getting a meal sometimes. Of course, he doesn't appreciate the fact that I've lost free time that I had late in the afternoon because now I have to be fixing dinner...he just grumbles about needing to leave. Methinks he should be in charge of the house for a while, and I will sit on my arse in my PJs and click away on my computer until I darn well feel like moving.

I don't know if it's at all similar as far as scheduling goes, but my mom was a paramedic. They were assigned to a partner, and then 2 or 3 sets of partners were called a team. Each team worked the same shift, which was 24 hours on/48 hours off.

BIL works for the sheriff's department, and he was assigned the 3-11 shift for like six months out of spite. It's horrible that people in charge of schedules can be so immature.

My hubby is dealing with his crappy shift because of a supervisor on a power high. My hubby is a sgt and is all about doing what's right and fair. Some folks are just in it to be bossy and watch others suffer.
