Cat's nap at work? Put on these stickers

Wednesday September 19, 2012 07:26:19 PM, IANS

Beijing: Feeling sleepy at work? Just paste these eye-shaped stickers on your eyes and enjoy your forty winks.

Eye-shaped stickers are becoming popular as they can be used to fool others when one is secretly taking a quick nap.

Most buyers are college students and office workers who use the stickers while dozing off at work or in class time, reported Global Times citing Chongqing Commercial Daily.

A netizen said that she slept during her classes this past week. And none of her teachers spotted the stickers.

"You are safe to sleep with the stickers on whenever you need a nap. They're hard to detect," a storekeeper was quoted as saying.

"And they're cheap, at only one yuan for each pair."

However, the stickers don't always work.

Deng Qing, an office worker, said he used them at work once and his boss realized they were fake.

"My boss fined me 50 yuan ($7.90) and told me that I am free to sleep when I feel tired, but that he did not appreciate my trick," Deng said.
