Top Ten…

…things to say if you’re caught sleeping at your desk:

#10 "They told me at the Blood Bank this might happen."

#9 "This is that 15 minute power nap they raved about in the time management course you sent me to."

#8 "Whew! Guess I left the top off the Whiteout. You probably got here just in time."

#7 "I wasn't sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and envisioning a new business strategy."

#6 "I was testing my keyboard for drool resistance."

#5 "I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve work-related stress. Are you discriminatory toward people who practice Yoga?"

#4 "Darn! Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out how to handle that big accounting problem."

#3 "Did you ever notice sound coming out of these keyboards when you put your ear down real close?"

#2 "Who put decaf in the wrong pot?!?"

And the NUMBER ONE best thing to say if you get caught sleeping at your desk...

#1 Raise your head slowly and say, " Jesus' name, Amen."

I got it in an e-mail from a co-worker, in between naps!

I've only fallen asleep at my desk once, and I'm pretty sure it was only for five minutes. I got away with it, though, since no one walked in!
