i actually had a job where i was permitted to sleep. me and the tech (nice kid). two of us to do nothing.
it was an acute psych unit on a residential campus that was supposed to be marketed for general admissions as well (not just for the kids on campus). well.... they didn't market it, so in 3 months of doing 2 16-hour shifts/weekend, we had 3 kids- and two were there at the same time. for a week each.
we were allowed to sleep as long as we were there, in case one of the dorms had to send someone over (never happened). the tech took the couch one night, and i pulled up two chairs (kinda coffin like
). i dozed off- and when i woke up, i looked around, and no tech.
i looked around the unit, and finally found him huddled over one of his textbooks. awake. seemed "off"....
i asked if he was ok.....yep.
i asked if he had gotten any sleep.... nope.
i asked again if he was ok.....fine. :spin:
i asked if i snored.
"oh my god...... the windows were buckling and the animals were running into the woods"......
well, at least i knew he still knew how to speak in sentences :d
(after 3 months of terroristic boredom, playing video games, feeding marshmallows to the raccoon family that showed up every night, and being brought food from the kitchen, and an unfortunate situation with a sick baby raccoon on a campus of emotionally disturbed kids, they decided to pack it in. i wasn't going to be able to drive to the other campus d/t a failing vehicle, so went elsewhere).
