Everyone gets tired at work. Some offices have even started implementing nap rooms into office culture. I personally find that naps make me less productive, because, you know, I’m asleep, but what do I know. Napping pods are all the rage right now at trendy tech start ups all over California and it supposedly makes people more productive. I don’t know about you, but when I get up from a nap I usually don’t want to do anything other than eat or watch television. I’ve never gotten caught sleeping on the job, but I’d imagine it’s similar to your boss catching you browsing reddit when you should be finishing up that spreadsheet he asked you to get him by EOD today. That wasn’t the case for this Aussie bro.
Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin group, recently popped into one of his offices in Australia only to find a worker fast asleep on the couch. Granted, this dude was on what Branson referred to as “standby” (read: break) but even so. Not a great look to be sleeping when your billionaire boss is roaming the halls taking stock of his minions.
“I popped into the office and the airport to say hello and check in to see what the team are up to. This guy wasn’t up to much at all-He must have thought he was dreaming because he went straight back to sleep.”
The best part about this was this guy did not give a flying fuck that Richard Branson was standing there posing for a photo next to his lifeless body. Branson woke him up and he went right back to sleep. The balls on this guy, let me tell ya. He’s got upper-middle management written all over him. Keep an eye on this one he might mess around and become Branson’s boss one day. .
