Caught Sleeping at your Desk? Things to Say When Caught Sleeping

There I was again. Sitting in my cubicle when all of a sudden my eyes started drooping. Blinks started becoming time warps, each one a micro-nap. I shouldn’t have caught that midnight showing of the new blockbuster that just came out. Curse my fanboyism! Now here I sit in my cubicle, one of many “busy” bees in the grey honeycomb we call an office. The low drone of people around provides the white-noise necessary to drown out the world …and spreadsheets are already sleep-inducing! Maybe I’ll just have a quick doze, a short little power nap to get me started for the day. After all, chances are the boss won’t be around until at least noon, and with my handy little list I’ll be ready for him…

  1. “They told me at the Blood Bank this might happen.”
  2. “This is just a 15 minute power nap they raved about in the time management course you sent me to.”
  3. “Whew! Guess I left the top off the Whiteout. You probably got here just in time.”
  4. “Did you ever notice sound coming out of these keyboards when you put your ear down real close?”
  5. “I wasn’t sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and envisioning a new paradigm.”
  6. “I was testing my keyboard for drool resistance.”
  7. “I was doing Yoga exercises to relieve work-related stress.”
  8. “Damn! Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out a solution to our biggest problem.”
  9. “The coffee machine is broken…”
  10. “Someone must’ve put decaf in the wrong pot…”

And my all time favorite…

  1. Raise your head slowly and say, “…in Jesus’ name, Amen.”
