He then returned the next day to leave the restaurant $5, because he's a damn gentleman. The comatose employee kept their job, but was suspended for a week, during which time they presumably slept.
A Postal Worker Hoarded 17,000 Pieces Of Undelivered Mail
Brooklyn mail carrier Aleksey Germash was in a heap of trouble when investigators found 10,000 pieces of undelivered mail stuffed into blue post office bags crammed inside his Nissan Pathfinder. They also discovered 6,000 undelivered items in his home and another 1,000 in his work locker, with one piece postmarked as far back as 2005.

Germash claimed he kept the mail because he was overwhelmed by the sheer insurmountable task of delivering it, which was the only part of his job, but added that he "made sure to deliver the important mail." Yep, the guy who drove around for 13 years with giant sacks of old mail in every nook and cranny of his life definitely took the time and effort to painstakingly sort your letters by importance.
A JetBlue Worker Fell Asleep In A Cargo Bin In New York, Then Woke Up In Boston
Tarmac workers at Boston's Logan Airport were surprised to see Sidney Nurse, a 21-year-old JetBlue employee, emerge from the plane's cargo hold after it landed. JetBlue is cheap, but they're not that cheap. Turns out Nurse was loading bags into the plane at New York's JFK Airport when he crawled into the pressurized luggage compartment, fell asleep, and woke up in Boston after a 200-mile aerial nap.
You may be asking yourself a few questions, like, "How do you fall asleep in the middle of loading bags?" "Was he just lying on a huge pile of peoples' bags?" "How did the sound of literal jet engines going off not wake him up?" "Did the other baggage loaders not see him?"

But Massachusetts State Police spokesman David Procopio issued a statement that cleared up everything: "Even after talking to him, we were a little uncertain as to how it happened." So there you go.
This wasn't even a unique case. In 2005, a baggage handler for Spirit Airways fell asleep in the luggage compartment and woke up in Detroit. Exactly how comfy is an airplane baggage compartment? Can we pay extra to sleep down there next time?
