Top 5 Benefits of Working Past Midnight

As I write, I am sitting at my desk past midnight after putting in a very long day at work.  But I'm in good spirits, so today's top 5 looks at the sunny side of working into the wee hours...

5: I am guaranteed a seat on the train.  The trains are virtually empty after midnight, so not only will I get a seat, but nobody will it next to me!  This is much better than my usual commute!

4: Nobody else is in the office, so I get to play my music loudly with reckless abandon.

3: Dinner can usually be expensed.

2: I'm in the heart of the City that Never Sleeps, so there are plenty of stores open and people around.  Granted, most of the people are drunk and most of the stores are drug stores, bars, and strip joints, but I guess that's not all bad.

1: If I leave my door open and my light on, my boss will think I just showed up super-early in the morning.

Do you ever need to work past midnight?  If so, what stupid profession did you choose?  Can you pinpoint any additional benefits?  Let us know in the comments below, and please check out our Facebook page!


  1. Sadly I've been there more times than I'd like to admit. Atleast I can work from home

  2. Also, no need to wear pants.
