People Share The Funniest Place They've Ever Fallen Asleep

Exhaustion can get the best of anyone.

Many people get so busy that they forget about the importance of getting rest. I've fallen asleep in movie theaters, classrooms, and even in busy restaurants.

Redditor u/aimlessecho asked, Where is the weirdest place you've fallen asleep? , and some of the answers were shocking.

10. What if the car started?

"Underneath the car while doing an oil change."

7. Extreme camping

"When I was a kid, like 5 or 6, there was a tree in the front yard I really liked climbing. There was a branch perfectly shaped for little me to lie down on. Early one morning, I woke up and decided to take my sleeping bag up the tree and went back to sleep."

5. This is why you should call out sick

"I volunteered at the local firehouse when I was a teen/early 20's. We got a call one night on the interstate which was a 20 minute drive. Sick me decided to close my eyes thinking I would wake up when the sirens stopped. I woke up when the truck pulled back in the station and turned off with everyone laughing at me."

"Buddy and I went to an amusement park, roller coaster were the main thing we went for. Then we got in line for one and as we sat down in the seat and got strapped in, a couple got pulled off to the side because they had a camera out. You aren't allowed to film or take pictures on roller coasters where I'm from. So security was called and the ride was delayed.

So I sat there and turn to my friend & say 'Yo Chris, wake me when the ride starts.' I said it as a joke, he laughed, and then I leaned back and closed my eyes. Then I was falling. The coaster has started and I actually fell asleep. I woke up on the first hill but I'm still amazed I actually fell asleep."

3. The dentist was accommodating

"I fell asleep while they were putting my braces in and I kept closing my mouth. They had to put something in my mouth that would keep it open for me. It was actually helpful as I fell back asleep and woke up when they were done.

2. That's so disappointing! 

"At a Van Halen concert in the 90's. Laid down on the grass in the open seating area. Next thing I knew the concert was over and my friends were waking me up so we could leave."

As morbid as it is, death is the inevitable yin to life's yang.

The inevitable end of our mortality looms ahead for all of us, but hopefully it's not for a long time.

That doesn't mean there are close calls along the way.

Not everyone is fortunate, but there are the lucky few who somehow managed to cheat death and lived to talk about their close calls.

A "fun fact" refers to a piece of information that might not be widely known.

Though, the "fun" in "fun fact" is often widely debatable.

Indeed, more often than not, people find or are told a "fun fact" about anything from an animal species to a famous celebrity which might make them want to cry or even throw up.

We've all heard some conspiracy theories about certain businesses, most of which are outrageously false.

That laundromats are simply a facade for shadier practices (including, not so ironically, money laundering) or that the Coca-Cola company invented "New Coke" with the express purpose of improving sales on original Coke.

But every now and then, we can't help but wonder what really goes on behind closed doors in certain professions.

And are eager to hear all the juicy tidbits from people working in that industry.

Finding a healthy work/life balance is extremely difficult.

Depending on their jobs, some people are barely home in time to spend any quality time with their loved ones, and weekends are hardly relaxing, as they are often devoted to chores and errands.

These are only a few reasons many people have pushed to adopt four day work weeks.

And while there seem to be multiple advantages to one's mental health and self-esteem, could eliminating 8 hours of work possibly have any downsides to it?
