Napping at work

  1. *raises hands* During my second pregnancy, I was so fatigued that I fell asleep in the office bathroom. I got rudely awakened by the flush in the next stall. I'm comforted by the fact that our office bathroom is cleaned three times a day by a very fastidious cleaner :lol:

    BTW, your user pic is hilarious. Love it!
  2. :smooch::hbeat::drinkup:
  3. haha! It's totaly not possible at my job - I must work with a bunch of swine because that bathroom is NOT clean and the things people do / noises they make (not even bodily noises!) is just...uigh!
  4. Not allowed to nap at my job. You would get written up the first time and possibly fired second time.

  5. i once was dozing off right in front of a manager when he was telling me what to do...he was staring at me with amaze. :lol: i ate too much at lunch...

    and i used to have a coworker would just doze off at his desk...gosh, he reminded me of a was quite common for him to do so. once his manager told him out loud to wash his face...but he still dozed off....hahaha...:lol:
  6. i have my own office and God willing I always will. I work as a therapist so I need my own office for privacy in seeing clients. That also means privacy to take a nap! ;) I don't know if we are "allowed" but I get my work done and when I feel I need it or can I will take a nap. Sometimes, it's just better to take a nap then try to be productive and end up making mistakes in documentation or not be able to focus in session. Unfortunatley, I've never had an office with a couch. I am sure I would have used it more than any of my clients and I've actually had an office with space for a nice long one. My office now, unfortunately barely fit me and my desk! :nogood:
  7. A co-worker fell asleep in a mtg and started snoring. In front if his boss. Then I broke out in the giggles the rest of the mtg.
  8. Haha I remember this happened to a student in a class back in high school-he was sleeping in the front row with his head propped up on his hand. However, his hand slipped out and he smashed his head on the desk-he woke up in a daze with a massive red mark on his head and the teacher was on the floor in tears laughing!
  9. I had a co-worker who always fell asleep in meetings but he had Narcolepsy and couldn't help it.

    I have a new co-worker who often crawls under her desk in her cube to rest. In an office, maybe but in a cube farm?? :shocked:
  10. When I was pregnant with my twins, I used to take a nap in my car at lunch time and wake up when the alarm went off. Thank goodness for parking garage and fall/winter pregnancy.
  11. My last company had a quiet room. Not sure I ever really fell asleep but there were a few occassions when i did sit in the dark quiet for 15-20 min to clear my head.
  12. I live close enough to work, that I can go home on my lunch and take a nice nap.
  13. Im shocked so many of you can get away with napping at work, must be some slack jobs! lol. Anywhere Ive worked there was always a watchful eye or people around, due dates/expectations that couldnt be met if you slacked off and of course repercussions.. I could never get away with a nap! lol
  14. I think it depends when it happens-if it's during your regular break, I don't think there is much that can be said (unless you fell asleep in the open where a manager may be concerned about how it appears to anyone walking by).
