Hi ya rocketj1 As I have started a discussion myself on sleeping in funny places I can't really answer your question because that would be repeating myself and myLot don't like that but in that discussion I told a story about my mum falling asleep that even now I can't stop laughing about and brings a smile to my face every time I think about it how she told it to me was so funny. So thank you for reminding me of this story and bringing a smile to my face oh and don't forget to check out my discussion, can't even remember what it was titled now!

That has not happened to me but I've seen a churchmate who went through that embarrassing situation. I don't know with her why she kept on doing that when she knew all along she's in the church. In the church while the Pastor is preaching...she would more often than not fall asleep. Of course when we go to church we are there to worship and hear the word of God and not to sleep. Why go to church when you will only sleep, better stay in your bedroom and do it there. For sure the Lord is not pleased at all with what she is doing. One time our Pastor got fed up with her attitude...while preaching... our Pastor banged the pulpit so hard and shouted fire, fire, to demonstrate one topic in the sermon... but also obviously to wake up the sleeper. You know what... the sleeper was roused from her sleep...and she went into panic...and shouted aloud! Ha!ha!ha! Everybody laughed at her. From then on she did not sleep anymore. Ha!ha!ha!

My husband easily falls asleep in church too. I think in his case it's a guy thing. I was surprised to see that your friend is a woman. Thanks for the hilarious story. I could almost see it happening as you have said! Thanks:)

oh yeah. I have sleep apnea so before I got the machine to help me out I would fall asleep all the the time. At work at my desk, in church. Anywhere. I always had people come up behind me and scare me awake. Need less to say i do not have the problem now. :)

Yes i was but my eyes werent closed at that time. It was during my mechanics class. Th lecture was reallly boring but the teacher was strict, He gave us a problem and asked me to solve on board based on formula he just taught. But i didn't heard as was sleeping. Then the gal next to me shook me and then the teacher said with a smile good morning. The entire class bach laughed it was quite embarrasing

Not me but, when I was in college we had a guy that worked a midnight shift. He would get off of work and have just enough time to make it into class. One day in the computer lab we heard "BANG". Everyone turns around to find this guys head into the keyboard sleeping. After a couple of drowsy minutes he wakes up with "keyboard dents" on his forehead. hehe
