So I come in to the office at 8:40 am and there’s my colleague, supposedly a Senior Manager, sitting in his cubicle, head on desk, purportedly taking a nap. You know the routine . . .
My opinion (btw, don’t look down that girl’s pants, that’s irrelevant, pay attention), and I acknowledge it’s just my opinion and others are welcome to feel differently about the matter: he’s a fucking weenie. What the hell, it’s not 2:30 am, the day is well begun. And I know he didn’t go out and get plastered last night so he’s suffering from a hangover (he doesn’t drink). So what’s the fucking matter with him? Ok, maybe his baby cried all night, so he didn’t sleep much. Or maybe his inlaws didn’t leave till late last night. Boo hoo fucking hoo. I often get up very early and don’t get more than 5 hours of sleep or so, but I don’t need to take a freaking nap at my desk.
My further opinion: he (and 99% of Taiwan’s head on the desk/table nappers) doesn’t do it because he’s tired and wants to catch up on his sleep; he does it because he (and the rest of his ilk) wants to show everyone “oh, man, I work so hard, I stay up so late, I’m such a crazy night animal that now I’m exhausted.” Well I don’t buy it at all. To me it just says, “I’m a little fucking weenie who wants to show you what a crazy animal I am, but in reality I’m just a little wimp.” (Incidentally, he is a very skinny, sickly guy, but all kinds of weenies play the little I’m so tired nap game in Taiwan.)
As I said, that’s just my opinion. So, keep in mind, if you do head on desk/table napping in front of me, I definitely won’t be impressed.
