Sleeping on the Job


Falling asleep at your desk in the UK is actually a sackable offence. In china no one blinks an eye while staff take 30 winks. I guess this is mostly due to the unnecessary numbers of staff working in one place; shops and hairdressers being the main perpetrators. They are bored stiff, I would slip into a zombee-like coma too. 5 greeters before you enter the establishment is never necessary.

Falling asleep in any location and position is quite a skill.
