At Least One Third of Americans Sleep at Work
I may or may not have slept during my midnight shift at a call center when I was just out of high school...I mean, just because I had access to super comfy chairs and only received one or two calls a night does *not* mean that I would get a full nights sleep and have my day still free.
But apparently other people have been doing that sort of thing...a lot of people.
A new study came out that shows a third of employees have slept on the job.
"At first I thought he was faking it, but he was completely passed out," says Keith, 31, who works for a digital printing company outside Boston, Massachusetts. "He left the company about a month after that episode."
Caryn Melton, 43, has nodded off during meetings, at her desk and even during a corporate event. Melton, who works for a marketing firm in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, says she doesn't sleep well at night so she is often tired during the day.
"I love napping. I turn my chair around so my colleagues can't see me, but I have been caught before. Luckily, I haven't gotten in trouble. I just get teased by my colleagues," she says.
