You refuse to get out of bed to pee, holding it in because your bed is so comfy and you are so tired from a 12 hr shift and you would rather suffer to the last moments that you practically pee on the floor getting to the toilet😂😁😭🤔😳🤗😱

You wake up and realize you drove home and fell asleep right after you parked the car. It's over an hour later.

  You're still sitting in the car. 

  Time for nighty night!

You're mimicking the turkey drowning in the rain while taking a shower after a shift. . .

You arrive home and you have no idea how you got there? 🤔😱

You go to the bathroom, pee, and brush your teeth all with your eyes closed.

You wake up the next morning, asleep on the floor with the house keys still in your hand.

You climb out of your car and immediately lay down on the grass while petting your much missed pups.

You settle in with a book a good 3 hours before bedtime only to wake up to your phone’s alarm in a puddle of drool and your cats wondering why they missed dinner without having turned a single page.

You start nodding off in your car and are grateful that it's a new nifty car with some helpful features like stay-in-lane and beeps at you.

One of the advantages of working from home.  I may fall asleep on the way to bed, but where ever I fall I will be in comfort of my own home.  LOL!
