Subway Sleepers

I use to nap on the bus ride home from school and then on the lawn during my breaks at uni. I recently saw someone sleeping on the train and I smiled to myself, thinking of the good ol' days.

Have you ever fallen asleep in a public place? If so, where? If not, why not?

Yes I've slept in train.
No. I'm pretty good with getting enough sleep most of the time so I've never had to sleep in public.
Thankfully no. Although on late night train trips, you see a few people drifting off. One even had an alarm on to wake him up.
Smart. Smart but sad. He mustn't have been getting enough sleep at home.

Yes, I'd been working almost 40 hours straight when I was doing a holiday job in my summer break from uni and I had to get the train home from where I was working. It was a 3 hour journey home and the gentle rocking motion of the train had me asleep in no time. Embarrasingly, a fellow passenger had to wake me up at the final stop, that was thankfully where I was getting off, otherwise I would have completely missed my stop.
I once saw a colleague fall asleep in a meeting. He honestly did the thing when the head slunks down asleep and then he shocked himself awake. Shouldn't laugh really, but it was a comedy moment.
Poor bugger! But that is hilarious. My grandfather does it all the time. I once called out to him and he didn't reply so I went to see where he was. Yes, he was in the house, but he had fallen asleep sitting upright and using an electric massager on his back.

LOL no I haven't ever fallen asleep outside like on the bus or train,it is a matter of safety....Plus, it's just not something I would let happen.
You say your at Uni, so it makes a lot of sense to me...your over tired, and it happens.
Just be careful, where you fall asleep....there are some brutal people out there, believe me.
I've never really thought about the safety aspect...hmm.

At Monaco GP, I stayed out all night then needed a nap in the lunch break at the track, so just slept on the bleachers the qualifying started up in the afternoon. I'm very classy...;)
;) Very.

Often.. I love sleep and usually blessed with the ability to sleep wherever/ whenever / however I need to. So if I feel drowsy and I find the right place with the right room temp, I can nod off to sleep in 3-5 mins.. The only trouble is I snore, rather loud!
Haha, so no sleep for anyone who hopes to catch a few zzz around you.

Yes, on the train commuting from work. But I never missed my station to alight!
P.S. And all the time on long flights!

Fell...no...flew off my bike travelling between Melbourne and Darwin, near Winton I think, survived and a few hrs later finally rode into town very battered and bruised. I thought I went to the doctors, but actually as I found out, after sleeping overnight in a park gazebo in town I suffered concussion and sorta lost about 18hours. Still, managed to fix myself up, and the bike and arrived in Darwin a day late, but very sore.
Crap. Sorry about the language, but that is the first word that entered my mind. You could have been robbed while 'out of it'.

Only on a train in Europe where many people seem to go to sleep.
