I'm typically an 8-5 worker, but recently I found out for one day I may have to work overnight. This is due to a customer that doesn't want to close during the day for an upgrade.
I've never worked 3rd shift in my life so I have no idea how long it will take for my body to transition from overnight to day time again. I plan to work the day before, do things around the house after work, then just stay up until 7am while doing the work. I don't think that will be a problem, but I will be dead tired when I go to sleep. If I sleep at 7am, I'll probably wake up at around the time I would normally get off work. So that's one day gone, then I can sleep late (3am) that night because I won't be tired for a while. Wake up earlier, but still too late for work (noon-1pm), then go back to my normal schedule the next day.
So is it acceptable for me to ask for 2 days off after the overnight work or would an average boss most likely think I'm taking advantage of the situation?
