Would You Rather: Sleep

It’s Monday! Would You Rather?

Would you rather:

  • Fall asleep in a movie theater during a film you were looking forward to or
  • Fall asleep in the waiting room for a doctor/dentist appointment and have to be woken up by the receptionist

Yes. I would always rather sleep. It doesn't matter where or when or who has to wake me up.

You're kidding, right? My choice is: miss part of a good movie vs. kill time constructively while waiting for something unpleasant? C'mon!! I don't see a downside to napping in the dentist's waiting room.

It would bug me to have to be woken up by the recptionist. It's not the napping part. Perhaps I should have put people at the RMV instead of a doctor's office, but they probably wouldn't bother to wake you up. They'd just call your number and you'd miss your turn.

It depends how cute the receptionist is.

Neither. I hate sleeping and wish I didn't need to sleep at all.

It wouldn't bother me if someone woke me up. I'd be upset if I missed my turn at the DMV, though. Or RMV, or whatever we call it these days.

dentist office for sure though neither would really bother me that much. Sleep = always good.

I always fall asleep in a dentist office, while waiting. So I'll just pick that.

Sleeping at the dentist/doctor.

I fell asleep at a Fishbone concert.

I fell asleep at work once and woke myself up with a snort. Luckily, everyone was at a meeting.

I once nearly fell asleep during an MRI (which is bad because if you move, you screw up the test and you have to go back).

I can sleep just about anywhere if I'm tired enough or relaxed enough.

Doctor/dentist. I don't feel I'd be bothered or embarassed by being woken up, but wasting money by sleeping through a movie would bug me.

Sleep is good... If I needed it it wouldn't matter where. Although, If it was a good movie I probably wouldn't fall asleep.

If I HAD to pick one ... I'd pick the dr/dentist's office.
