Do you notice that people are crazier when the moon is full? My husband pooh-poohs the idea but I vehemently disagree. I used to work in customer service and we got the genuine crazies and loony street people when the moon was full. We all wanted to call in sick when the full moon fell on the first the month because that was check day. Oh, the stories I could tell about the full moon!

So, so you believe in the full moon crazies?

Until she retired, Michele was a nurse, working the last 37 years on nights. She said that she could tell when it was a full moon, because the patients would go bonkers.

I agree, I worked nursing homes for years as a RN, the residents ALWAYS acted up and became very agitated during a full moon. We had many more falls and hospitol admits during that time too. There should be a study done on it, because you could see teh restlessness rise as a full moon came closer!

Yep. I used to be a zoning officer. And I always knew when the full moon was coming because I'd get these really weird phone calls. I swear the crazies know.

This woman would call me to complain about everything. Signs, fences, trees, you name it; she complained about it. Made me crazy. Always around a full moon. It got to the point where our admin ass't would say, "You know, it's time for ******* to call us!" And sure enough. Pretty much every month, we'd get the phone call. She was bat-poop crazy.

Full moon crazies are well known and documented in the teaching community.
:yeah: My last 7 years of teaching were at a middle school. That particular age group already has a lot going on but whenever we felt like we were having a Twilight Zone moment one of my team members would point out it was a full moon. :crazy:

I absolutely believe. Having headed up Human Resources for close to forty years before retiring, I could always tell when it was a full moon by the odd people stuff that would happen.

Looks like I am the only one here that does not believe in full moon crazies.

Oh, yeah, I think it's documented! And with cats, well, I won't name names, but during full moons, certain felines around here get very much more active at night and are known to tell the world what they are thinking and feeling. :angrycat:
