Today, I was so exhausted that I took a quick nap on the floor of my classroom during one of my free periods. I must have turned off the alarm I set, because I was gently woken up to the giggles of a whole class of students. To make matters worse, I was lying in a big puddle of my own drool. FML

hey FML legends! OP here. It's true. I fell asleep on my classroom floor... It's a beautiful classroom (which I keep very clean #26) and there are three steps going up onto a carpeted platform which was the scene of this particular crime... It wasn't a particularly comfortable nap, but I hardly noticed at the time. And it certainly was worth it - even considering the slightly-above-average levels of embarrassment I endured for it - I was so tired I was in that state that everything was funny except for my actual existence, which isn't exactly the best mindset to be mounding young minds from... I really should stop burning the candle from both ends! It's an all-girls school, and word spread pretty quickly... but luckily for me I was already regarded as the eccentric music teacher, so sleeping in my empty classroom during a free period is pretty tame in comparison to the things they probably expect from me ?

On one hand, I'm wondering why you slept on the floor, but on the other, the very idea of a clean, cool floor in an empty classroom, is making me feel sleepy. It's late. I'm tired.

That was one great nap though right?


then where would she nap then? on a desk??

#10, a desk does sound more practical than the floor. At least to me, it does. That is, I mean resting their head on a desk, while sitting in a chair. That's how I napped during class.

Taking wet dream to a whole other level

Having an actual wet dream would've been a lot worse.

Do take note of the location: South Africa.

#6, I'm not sure what that has to do with anything.

South Africa is actually pretty well developed...

I'm pretty sure he was trying to make a joke about how it's Africa and because of that everything they do is weird and/or primitive. It was a dumb joke.

Please, we all know that school floors are full of saliva, dirt, and literal shit particles. I wouldn't dare touch the floors with anything that's not my shoes.

Are you a teacher or student ?

I'm assuming teacher, since they said "my classroom"...

I could never get comfortable enough to fall asleep in a classroom. I'm always paranoid that I'm going to do something embarrassing in my sleep. Like talk, twitch, snore, or God forbid.... toot.

"No. Mom. I don't want to go to school." *runs like dogs do in sleep*

Been there. Done that. Except the teacher was the one who called me out...

Your lucky I have a prankster side. I would've drawn on your face, oh I wanna know how you slept threw the school bell.

Maybe you need to go back to school if you can't get THROUGH a sentence spelling basic words right

Better to awaken in a puddle of drool than a puddle of urine. Your choice to use puddle makes me curious. Personally I've always Felt that to qualify as a puddle a body of water ( or other liquid) must meet at least one of the following criteria - A) large enough for a small child to splash in. B) big enough to accommodate at least two ducklings. C) thoroughly soak an adult foot through the shoe to the sock

Maybe there were ducks splashing in op's drool, that's why the kids were giggling...
