”Working at sunrise, resting at sunset” was the rule of life followed by the ancients, but in ancient times there were also people who needed to work night shifts, such as watchmen and doormen, as well as monks. Let’s take a look: “The moon is falling and the sky is full of frost, Jiang Feng’s fishing fire is sad, and the Hanshan Temple outside Gusu City, the bell arrives at the passenger ship in the middle of the night.” There must be a night shift in the temple to ring the bell, otherwise there will be no eternal sayings of Zhang Ji. Up.
The Tang Dynasty court began to form a system of ministers on night shifts. The heads of the three provinces, Zhongshu, Shangshu, and under the door, all took turns on night shifts. Each province had a “Zhi Ling” (Night Shift Record), which was handed over to the night shift by Zhi Ling Shi on the same day. People, recovered the next day. At that time, the prime minister Yao Chong was old and he was unwilling to be on the night shift, so Zhi Ling Shi skipped Yao Chong and passed down the night shift record book, which caused dissatisfaction with other ministers, and Zhi Ling Shi was very embarrassed. Yao Chong then wrote in the duty book: “I will tell the history and send it again, and I will want to take people and have the same command. The old man is not suitable for his age.” Yao Chong thought he was old. Isn’t it too unreasonable to let me go to the night shift? Other ministers could not say anything after reading Yao Chong’s comments.
  The emperor usually does not work at night, so the night shift is usually performed by a general secretary. During the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty, a very interesting event happened-late one night, Qianlong suddenly wanted to target Gar, and he hurriedly called his secretary to come in and write a document. At this time, there was only one secretary named Bayan San in the Military Aircraft Department. This person had neither literary talent nor ability. He was assigned to be on duty by his superiors. He never thought that the emperor would also work at night and let him draft documents. The secretary named Bayan San bit his head and ran outside Qianlong’s bedroom, listening to Qianlong’s instructions through the window. Although Batingsan was walking at the military plane, it was impossible to have the opportunity to contact the emperor. Now he stood in front of the emperor and was surprised. After Qianlong gave the decree, Bayan San didn’t listen to a word. He couldn’t write it when he returned to the military office, and he was sweating profusely. Fortunately, with a little eunuch at the time, he helped Bayansan write down the emperor’s will from his memory. When the two of them handed over the papers to the emperor in fear, they thought they would be criticized. Who would expect the emperor to write the emperor well? And I remembered Bayan San’s name. Later, under the care of the emperor, Bayansan, the secretary who was so ordinary in the military department, was promoted all the way to the high position of the governor of Guangdong and Guangxi.
  The night shift can bring high-ranking officials a lot of money. Bayan San is the first person in the ages. When Du Fu, a great poet of the Tang Dynasty, was an official, he was also on duty overnight, but Du Fu was not as lucky as Bayan San. He once wrote a night class poem “Chun Su Zuo Sheng”: “The flowers are hidden in the twilight, and the birds pass by. The stars are moving in thousands of households, and there are many moons. If you don’t sleep and listen to the golden key, you want Yuke because of the wind. There was a seal in the Ming Dynasty, so I asked how the night was.” Reading this verse, you can imagine that Du Fu was very dedicated to the night shift, but unfortunately he was not able to meet Bole.
