One in Four People Admit to Falling Asleep on the Job, and That Includes Airline Pilots
According to a survey by a British hotel chain called Premier Inn, one in four employees admit that they've fallen asleep at their desk.
Desks are the SECOND most popular place to nap while on the job. The most-popular way to sleep at work is to sneak out to the parking lot to take a nap in your car.
17% of people, or about one in six, have snuck into an empty conference room to sleep at work.
While we may not think it's a big deal for all of us to take a nap while on the clock, ANOTHER survey found that airline pilots do the SAME THING.
Four out of 10 commercial airline pilots say that they've fallen asleep in the middle of a flight, not while they were taking a break and letting someone else fly, while they were FLYING the plane.
Not only that, but one in three of the pilots that fell asleep said that when they woke up, they saw that their CO-PILOT was sleeping too.
