Ahhhh, the clopen. That’s the term for when you have a closing shift followed by an opening shift the next day. You get to be the last one to leave the building and you get to be the first one there the next morning. It ought to be illegal, but unfortunately it’s not. It’s how you know your managers love you. Clopens shouldn’t be a common occurrence, but they happen more than you’d like them to. I secretly think about sleeping in a storage closet each time I am scheduled to clopen. It makes more sense than trekking all the way home and sleeping uncomfortably for a few hours before coming right back to work. I wonder if I could get away with keeping a tent in the break room. Probably not but it’s worth a shot. If you’re scheduled to work a clopen, you are required to bitch about it nonstop for the duration of those two shifts. It’s not a true clopen if you’re not miserable about it.
