1. At an airport
Many a passenger has spent a night or two sleeping at an airport because their flight was cancelled due to a snow storm, strike or their airline went under. People can be found sleeping in chairs in the departure lounge, along the wall, in the food court or on a luggage carousel (if it’s moving, please put a toe tag on the sleeper).
2. In a Coffee shop
If you have fallen asleep in a coffee shop then you have to say something about the service. If you’ve gone lala before your latte, maybe you should think about coffee by the pot.
3. While at a meeting
You know a meeting is going long and is way off topic when people start falling asleep during a meeting at the office. If the person running the meeting is asleep, it is all right and acceptable office procedure to slowly leave the room. But take a picture with your camera first.
4. In your car, truck or van
You could be truck in traffic that hasn’t moved in hours or you’ve locked yourself out of your house and your roommate won’t be back until the next day or you cheap out while camping.
5. During an argument with your spouse
The only thing you can say here is that this is never a good idea. If you thought you were in trouble before, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
6. While a guest at the local jail
If you’re sleeping off too much happy hour, you could end up missing your shoes, various other pieces of clothing and possibly your dignity when you wake up in the arms of your new BFF.
7. During class
I remember the good old days when a teacher could peg off a dozing student from across the room with a piece of chalk or crack some knuckles with a yardstick. Now things have gone too far the other way when the kid falls asleep in the principals office while being lectured about falling asleep in class.
8. In the dog’s house
My brother-in-law has claimed to have spent the night curled up with his Saint Bernard in the dog’s house after coming home wording his slurs and being banished by my sister. No wonder my sister has so many diamonds.
9. In a closet
Maybe you were playing hide and seek and you are too good or the person just wanted to get rid of you for a while. Never fall asleep in a closet while waiting for your lover’s mate to leave or you may miss your chance. Snoring during this period is also not recommended.
10. Face down in your dinner place
You either had a really tough day on the job or you have to work on your dinner conversation skills.
So when you find yourself falling asleep in an unusual place, remember the moment as it could make for an interesting story.
