Hard at Work?

At work my sister and I have been assigned a job to inventory all the lamps. After lunch we decided we would go finish doing this since we hadn't had time to get back to it for a while. We walked into the warehouse and were greeted by the melodious snores of several Thai workers. One of the Thai staff was asleep on the reclining chair. We passed by him and turned on the lights to the upper floor. Only when we looked down from up the stairs did we notice a second guy sleeping on the couch holding a pillow. His snores were more like grunts and quite loud as they reverberated through the building. As we walked around we noticed another Thai guy sleeping on a couch on the upper level. Seriously!?! Did we miss the memo that it is nap time or something? So we quietly found our clipboard and started to write down the numbers when the lights went out and we heard someone on the stairs. We saw another man coming up the stairs and recognized it as Kuhn Joe, one of our Bosses. We thought for sure everyone would get busted but to our surprise he found a comfy reclining arm chair closed his eyes and was about to fall asleep! Mina and I started to bust out laughing and as we stifled our laughs with our hands we decided that we weren't going to be able to do the lamps today after all. Mina put the clipboard down and we headed for the stairs. Kuhn Joe opened his eyes and said... "Do you need to sleep?" to which we replied, "No we were just doing lamp inventory." He said "Ok have a nice day" and went back to his nap. As soon as Mina and I were out of the warehouse we couldn't help but start laughing. Wow! Even one of our bosses used the furniture stored up there as a place to nap. Then we started to get weirded out. Had they done that to our furniture before it got to our house? Bleh! That's where we drew the line. So needless to say it was a rather exciting day at work.

Random Fact:  "Goodbye" came from "God bye" which came from "God be with you."
