Google’s Napping Pods Look Awesome

I’m totally jealous of the people working at Google right now. Check this out:

Yes, this is what Googlers call an “energy pod”. I personally know quite a few people who’d use that thing extensively. Heck, I’d even set one up in my home if I could! Not sure my wife would consent though considering the device’s retail price: $8000.

    • Exactly. My coworkers would totally screw with whoever used these. They'd walk by and do drum solos on the top or something just to be a bother.

      I tried just once to get a powernap at my desk during my lunch break. Every single person over 35 who walked by said "hey, wake up" loudly. The younger people I guess used their wits and READ THE SIGN I'D POSTED saying I was taking a short nap during my lunch break. But I've noticed a lot of the older generation consumed by the image they give their coworkers. Is it so bad to look bored when you legitimately have nothing to do? If your boss has to justify keeping you around, he should be the one stuck with letting you go or finding you work. I'm not creative enough to make crap up or deceptive enough to make it look like I'm working when I'm not.
