Employee Of The Month!
We all know that one guy at work who will arrive early and leave late in order to get the job done. Sometimes, he’ll even work until the early hours in order to make sure that he meets all the necessary deadlines. So in order to honor his achievement as “Employee Of The Month,” the team gathered around him while he was nodding off and had a group photo! Then they sent him home to sleep for 20 hours.
There’s a good reason why beds were invented in the first place. They are there to give us a comfortable platform to rest our head on and get some much-needed sleep. However, some people are happy to get some shut-eye in the most ridiculous locations – like this guy! When you are driving around the same the bus route multiple times each day, it makes sense that one can get tired. So why not have a well-deserved nap on your windscreen while no one’s looking?
Farmers certainly have a special relationship with their animals. Sure, they aren’t exactly pets, but cows are apparently very comfortable to take a nap on. So many of these unorthodox places to sleep probably don’t do any wonders for one’s posture, and this “cow bed” is no different. What happens if the cow gets up? Well, the answer to that is pretty simple. The sleeper falls off and wakes up, which is important, as we’d hate to see the cow fall asleep on him.
Even Hollywood Stars Need A Place To Nap
While most A-list Hollywood stars get their own trailers where they get to recite their lines, eat snacks and take naps, sometimes those trailers are just too far to get to. When Kurt Russell was shooting Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, he was caught sleeping on the job. To be fair, the cast and crew were waiting to shoot the next scene. It’s OK Kurt – after everything you’ve done for Hollywood, you’ve earned it.
Look, I Invented The Wheel Bed!
Life is all about finding new, innovative ways to make one’s life just a little bit easier. So when these two co-workers saw that the coast was clear to get a few minutes worth of rest, they thought of a genius idea. They took two wooden planks, placed them on the inside of two large wheels and fell asleep on them. Let’s just hope the driver of this truck doesn’t drive away anytime soon…
When you are the owner of your very own papaya farm, you have every right to jump on a pile of fruit and take a nap. However, if you get caught sleeping on your papayas, you might end up getting a phone call from the health and safety services. Moreover, your papaya farm might get shut down! Why doesn’t this guy just walk across the road to sleep in his actual bed? Is the summer sun really taking that much of a toll?
You know what they say: age is nothing but a number. At the end of the day, you are as old as you feel. If you’re a middle-aged man and want to have some fun at a playground, then what’s all the fuss about? We think we’ve got the answer to that question. Most kids have the energy to play for hours on end before going back home. Whereas a 50-year-old man will probably get tired after 10 minutes and fall asleep on the see-saw.
Just A Bike Dream
If you get tired and decide to sleep somewhere on your own property, then what’s all the fuss about? If it’s your bed, then fine. Do you want to sleep on your couch? We’re cool with that. Do you want to take a nap on your motorbike? Well, it’s a free country and no one’s going to arrest you for it. And while there are far less comfortable places to sleep, a motorcycle wouldn’t be at the top of our list.
The Award For Most Boring Movie…
If there was a worse place to be caught sleeping, then we’d love to know. At the Academy Awards in 2017, it appeared that Chrissy Teigen was so bored with the ceremony that she ended up using hubby John Legend’s shoulder as a pillow. There is no denying that the Oscars aren’t quite what they used to be. However, we expect better from the guests of this prestigious awards ceremony. Come on Chrissy, you’re on TV!
Tallest Bed Ever
At the end of the day, it’s not about how high your bed is, as long as it is comfortable. In all honesty, we can imagine a hundred bags of rice being surprisingly comfy to sleep on! However, it seems like such a mission just to get to the top. By the time you’ve completed your hour-long ascent to the top, you are surely in store for the greatest nap of your life. On the plus side, you probably won’t get caught sleeping on the job.
Game Of Thrones
When you think about it, sleeping on the toilet is quite a practical decision. You don’t have to worry about getting up in the middle of the night and finding the bathroom in the pitch black. All you need to do is wake up, sit on the “throne,” do your business, flush and revert back to your sleeping position. Of course, if you are concerned at all about your own personal hygiene, which you should, then you should never do this.
Man’s Best Bed
If you’re a dog and you can’t use your owner as a bed every once in the while, then what’s the point of even being a pet, to begin with? This dog seems to have a great deal: his owner acts as both a mommy and as a set of pillows! Shortly after this photo was taken, the little hound rested his head on his owner’s shoulder. When you think about it, this would’ve been a much cuter photo.
At One With Nature
Some people just love being out in nature so much that they have no problem falling asleep in it. This guy was so engulfed in all things green that he was perfectly happy to fall face-first into the bushes for a quick nap. It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise then that passersby were shocked to see him. They assumed that he was dead and had no choice but to wake him up from his leafy slumber.
If you live in London and commute to and from work, you probably need to use the London underground, one of the most intricate underground systems in the world. Sometimes, these commutes can be pretty long. Therefore, after a hard day’s work, it makes sense for one to doze off at some point during the journey. However, never have we seen someone use a pole as a pillow. If his nose loses balance, he will surely collapse to the floor.
Introducing…The Sleep Locker
You would think that offices these days would set up a space where workers can get much-needed naps. If you think about it, it would help maintain energy levels throughout the day, as long as it’s time-monitored. However, sleeping spaces haven’t been set up at this guy’s office yet. As a result, he took matters into his own hands and decided to doze off in his own locker. He was inches away from being caught by his boss!
Now You See Me…
It’s one of the classic tricks in the world of office life. If you have your own cubicle, all you need to do is hide under your desk and voila, you can sleep without anyone knowing about it. As long as you don’t snore, the coast is clear! It is that simple, right? Right? Wrong! This guy failed miserably when he tried to hide himself under his desk. You are not fooling anyone, sir! You’re fired!
Literally Hung Over
This is just pure speculation, but we are assuming that his guy had one too many drinks. By the time he got home from his crazy night out on the town, he tried to rehydrate with a cold shower before finally going to bed. However, he didn’t manage to get to his room and ended up hanging over his bathroom sink. Word of advice, people: if you ever get into this situation, do what this guy’s doing – lie on your belly.
It’s an issue that many elderly people who are still working end up facing. The harsh reality is that the older you keep on working, the harder it is to stay awake on the job. It’s hard enough to keep one’s eyes open when the job entails sitting around all day. So one guy found the perfect solution – create the illusion that he is on the job with a cardboard replica. It seems like you can teach an old dog new tricks.
When you have a child, you are always trying to find the next best opportunity to get some sleep. Because there are so many responsibilities when it comes to bringing up one’s baby, making sure that you get enough hours of sleep can fall down the pecking order of priorities. So when this married couple took their child out to the park one day, they seized the opportunity to have a five-minute nap. Of course, we don’t recommend any parent to actually do this…
Time To Press “Pause”
Even musicians need to take a step back from time to time and sleep for a few hours. While not all buskers are necessarily homeless, the fact that this guy is sleeping in his instrument case is worrying to say the very least. Let’s just assume that he’s not homeless and wanted to have a break from his busking responsibilities. Also, let’s hope that no one is rude enough to disturb him from his sleep and steal his money.
Check Out This New Recliner
After these two brothers enjoyed a busy trip around the city, they eventually ended up at a park where they decided to set up a picnic and have some lunch. However, after getting so tired from all that walking, they couldn’t help but doze off for a few hours. Unfortunately, one of the brothers was so tired that he didn’t even realize that the chair he was sitting on didn’t have a backrest, which is why this happened.
Hitting The Books
When our friend told us he was going to “hit the books,” we didn’t realize that he was speaking in literal terms. When you think about it, a library is an ideal place to get some much-needed shuteye. Libraries are generally some of the quietest places in the world. At the very least, they are supposed to be. Let’s just hope that Mr. Bookworm here doesn’t have a snoring problem, otherwise he might need to do all his research online in the future.
Wheel Of Misfortune
If you can sleep on the wheel of a truck, then where can you sleep? This man preferred sleeping on a wheel than having to resort to the hard ground. One thing’s for sure though; when you have to resort to such a strange place to sleep, you know you’ve got a lot of problems to take care of. Someone better wake this guy up before the truck moves again. Otherwise, someone’s going to discover a very strange case of roadkill.
In many cultures, resting one’s legs on the other seats in public transport is heavily frowned upon. Why do we wanted to sit on a seat that your filthy sneakers have been planted on for the last hour? That’s neither here nor there though. What’s important to take away from this photo is that sometimes, the sleeping position you aimed for can go horribly wrong. Let’s face it though, if you sleep deep enough, you can get into the most unorthodox positions.
Man’s Best Pillow
Isn’t that the dream? You know, for your dog to let you rest your head on him while you both take a nap in the garden? We don’t think we’ve ever found a more ideal situation in the history of human (or canine) existence. Just the sight of the dog’s front paws up in the air is enough for us to go out to the garden, roll over and die happily. Just make sure that you don’t get too comfortable.
Bad Day At The Office
We’ve all been there before. You’ve been inundated with work, the assignments keep piling up and by the time you’ve packed up and decided to head home, your boss piles another 20 pieces of work on you. You’ve crashed and burned on 10 cups of coffee and as soon as you get on that subway on the way home, you’re ready to sleep in front of everyone. However, we’ve never seen someone get that comfortable.
It is no secret that doctors and nurses have to work ridiculously long and (late) hours at any given day. This makes sense seeing that anyone at any given time can get sick or injured and require medical attention. However, this doesn’t take anything away from the fact that people with medical professions need to get as much sleep as the next person. So when the coast was clear, and nobody was being rushed into ICU, these nurses took a group nap together.
If there was ever a place/situation that could get so boring that you’ll end up falling asleep, then it’s during your least favorite class. This young lady found this lesson excruciatingly boring that she ended up falling asleep in front of the teacher. When he walked out of the room to get some resources for the class, her school friends decided to play a little prank on her, putting all of her books and calculator on top of her head.
Napping On Auto-Pilot
We’re not going to sugarcoat it. This article is dedicated to the craziest places that people have slept in. With that said, this might be the most ridiculous on this list. Why would you put your life on the line by falling asleep inside the propeller of a plane? That’s a terrible death waiting to happen! Let’s just hope that the pilot didn’t start trying to take off when this guy was still asleep! Everyone have a pleasant (and deathless) flight.
Sleeping On The Job
While some workers can’t wait to fall asleep as soon as they get on the train on the way home, others can’t help but fall asleep in their own office cubicle! This guy had the nerve to tell his co-worker to cover for him while he got some much-needed shuteye. As you can see, he’s got so much work to do. So it makes a lot of sense that he would try to kick back for a few minutes.
While some photos on this list show ridiculous places to sleep, others are actually pretty clever when you think about it. Take this truck driver, for example, who broke down in the middle of the highway. What else can you do when you’re waiting for someone to come and pick you up? That’s right – you pull out the hammock, hang to the bottom of your truck and take a well-deserved nap. We approve of this “logistically” sound move.
Rise From The Dead
When Jesus Christ is hovering over you and disapproving of your naptime, you know you’ve got some big problems. Jokes aside, even the most religious individuals need to value the importance of sleep from time to time. You can’t just be at Church all day studying the Bible. You need to get some rest some times in order to rebuild your faith and determination to learn about the good word! Even God rested on the seventh day.
Bringing Balance To The Force
Some people are able to sleep in the most uncomfortable positions. While some can sleep through earthquakes, others can practically sleep on tightropes! Take this guy, for example, who was able to doze off on a chain. We have no doubt that he will wake up with a sore back (and backside). However, we get the impression that he has conditioned himself to sleep this way for years. Who needs a bed when you’ve got a chain hammock?
