You need to move to Japan where having a nap at work it viewed as proof that you're working very hard!
I hate falling asleep in public places. im always afraid of snoring or drooling. Sorry OP! Hopefully your boss understands.
One time I fell asleep in class, while standing. I nearly hit the floor in front of everyone, XD it was really embarrassing.
What is with people saying I hope your boss was okay with it. I somehow doubt that most of the people commenting this have ever been responsible for much. If I were the boss you would definitely be on thin ice ....
I also find your comment regarding people hoping his boss understands ignorant. My boss understands if somthing like this happens and sympathizes. Im not saying you should sleep at work. If its a one time thing its not a huge deal. If its reoccurring thats a diffrent story.
Correction I am saying it's his fault . Let's argue for instance he had narcolepsy. Knowing his own issue he is responsible to tell his work about his issue and in turn wouldn't be saying fuck my life . I understand your argument, but regardless seeing it as a business perspective stealing company time to sleep is not okay .
Dear lord, the stupidity... it's overwhelming. I'm pretty sure ANY boss wouldn't be to happy about his employees sleeping on the job, why? Because he's not paying them to come and sleep. He shouldn't get blamed for something he has no control over. Is that a joke? He can go to sleep earlier for starters, secondly he should drink more water that helps enormously, and third healthy diet so he won't feel drowsy. If he values his job in the slightest he'll get his act together.
#33, of OP does have a sleeping problem, then there is medication for that, I know that because I have friends with severe sleeping problems, but as long as they take medication they are fine. And if OP does not have a sleeping problem then like other comments stated there are other ways to help with that. Also I do agree that I should be on thin ice, because sleeping, at work shows disrespect and carelessness for OP's job, because OP is at work to work, and if he has to sleep, then he should stay home, because he is not getting paid to sleep
if they had a sleeping disorder/problem they would have (or atleast should have) included it in their fml because it is an inportant factor in why they were asleep, im sure the poster would tell us because it would explain things. plus, if it was a diagnosed condition then the boss should know and theyd get in less trouble. since that wasnt concluded in the op's fml post, it just seems like op is just tired for normal reasons. anything else is just speculation
Im sure as long as op has a legitimate excuse such as stress in his marriage, sick/dying family member, or something along those lines his boss would be somewhat understanding. If he explains the situation and promises it wont happen again op's boss may let him off with just a warning. If none of this is true then op totally deserves it, but im vonna hope op had a good reason.
I kept falling asleep in my old job, mainly because I was constantly bored as I didn't have enough work to do and because the lights were so incredibly bright. I couldn't help it, and even did so in meetings with my manager. I explained I'd had it since school and I get plenty of sleep, I even have evening naps. I had some tests done but I'm still waiting for the NHS to arrange my sleep study...
Some places, that would be considered- stealing from your company's hours. Count your blessings if you didn't get fired.
