Occasionally. I'm a custodian, and there's only so much toilet paper you can put in a building. After that....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....

I have once. I worked maintenance for a local school system doing a lot of outside work, which means that, during the summer months i worked, it got unbearably hot. One day, a coworker and I were tasked with mulching an elementary school's playground and it just so happens that there was a nice little wooden shelter (basically just a roof) right by it, so after lunch, we went back to the school and laid down on some of the picnic tables they had there and went to sleep. We woke up about an hour later because some guy living by the school came up to us and woke us up and scared the hell out of me because i thought he was my supervisor.

Many many many moons ago I ran a forklift and found a way to take a (very short) snooze when the forks are being lowered to the ground. New rules said you were not allowed to to travel with forks in the air so a good 20 second cat nap until the forks hit the concrete and let you know it was time to move again. I mentioned it to my fellow workers. At first a bit of... well probably what you all thought when you first read this, but a few weeks later others were closing their eyes as the forks were lowered.

Now
I nap on my break too! Beats most energy drinks!

I work from 4-5pm to 1-3am so I don't really nap. On the odd days that I have to work 8am to 4-6pm, I may sneak a 20 minute nap in the office. If possible. I end up feeling worse after though.

During summer breaks while I was in college, I did some full-time babysitting. I'd sometimes take naps while the kids took theirs.

Now my job requires that I stand; no sitting allowed. I may not take a nap, but I occasionally find myself zoning out/needing a nap.

During my lunch break (30-60 mins) I have taken power naps in my car before, but never at my desk :)

@caffeine_dude: Now I'll never feel comfortable again in a construction zone - wait, I am retired, I don't usually need to be in one. I shall, however, avoid walking under a forklife should the occasion arise. LOL

@jeffyn: wake up dude!!!!! you're snoring pretty loud

Yes. Yes I do. I work nights behind the desk at a hotel.

The trick is. I have permission.

That's right. The boss has given me tacit, express permission to take a nap, as long as my paperwork is done, and I wake up in time for the breakfast stuff.

Pay is crappy, coworkers suck, hours are lame, but dammit if it isn't the most RELAXING job ever.

Now that I have been using five hour energy my naps are getting way less frequent. Plus no jitters or crashes, now if I could just get the voices to stop telling me to burn stuff I would really be productive.

@caffeine_dude: We call that micro-napping, as in "that roller coaster was so lame, I took a micro-nap".

Sure I do but then I work from home and, as long as I get my work done, nobody cares.
