Offices really do need some sort of facilities to allow people to slope off for a little snooze in the afternoon

At a previous client, I used the car park. And not just at lunchtime either. :smokin

I doubt it would just be used for naps.

I remember the disabled toilet at JP MOrgan Aldermanbury being closed due to "improper use". I always wondered what that meant. Sex? Drugs? Both?

One place had a first aid room with a bed, another we but a cot up in the server room, although if you feel asleep for too long you'd get hypothermia from the AC

ten years or so ago, at Radders, the girl on the team came back from the ladies bright red. She had seen two pairs of high heels , facing each other, with lots of slurpy kissing noises coming from the bog next door.

tugging material for a year that was

I agree, I operate so much better after a little snooze.

Have worked with quite a few contractors who would head to their cars at lunchtime for a kip. Never done that even last year when I was finding myself so knackered by the afternoon that I was ready to drop. Convinced myself for a while it was some horrific cancer but after a trip to the docs, it turned out I had Glandular Fever :sick

I worked with a guy once who was quite proud to admit he would have an hours kip in the toilet after having hung his jacket on his chair.

I said car park, not bike shed. Try taking the car to work instead of the bike. :tumble:

Has anyone else ever worked with someone who took a nap at their desk, usually 10-15 mins at the end of their lunch?!

My line manager at a PS place would regularly take these naps

No but worked with a manager who took a nap in an important meeting once. Resorted to knocking out some loud zzzzzz's as well.
