yep, in my early 20's I was found a sleep and p*ssed in the executive toliet shower room after an xmas lunch. They had knocked on the locked door and didnt get a response, thinking someone had may be slipped and was unconsious they forced the door and found me a sleep. Luckily they were ok about it being xmas and such.

I have mastered the art of keeping my eyes open and nodding wisely during meetings while fast asleep. Just stop the nodding if you want a nap in front of a PC

The only other animal ,who can sleep with its eyes open is fish.

In my student days I worked for Shell during my summer holidays. I went out on a really heavy night out. I got a lift to work early and as nobody was in the office had a kip in my bosses chair. Got caught when everybody came in.

At another place, after the christmas do, I got lost on the way home, but managed to find the offices. managed to get the security gaurd to let me in and slept at my desk. When people started arriving, in my still drunken state I thought it would be better if I slept under my desk.

Finally at another place, and after another Christmas do I had access to the server rooms. So I printed off a load of faults, took one of the keys and had a kip in there for a few hours. I woke up with pins and needles in both legs and freezing due to the air con.

Worked at a place where one person fell asleep in a meeting. The whole meeting got quieter and quieter as to not wake him.

Indeed. Funny how evolution works, innit? Both the most intelligent and the least find the same coping mechanisms.

I found the comms engineer alseep in the main comms room - Called the other engineers - We tied the guys shoe laces together. Then rang his mobile from binhind some cabinets - Oh I wish they had phones with Video Camera's back then.

One of our guys used to see his girlfriend once a month, so on certain Mondays he was a little tired. (The Fridays before he was unmanageable due to the sap rising).

Anyway we piled boxes under his chair a bit like a modern Joan of Arc, he woke up when he smelt the match. (admittedly it was the 5th match.)

Another time we decorated him a bit like Braveheart with marker pens.


Repair shops filled with apprentices and bored engineers were so cruel.
