Virgin Australia Employee Not Impressed With Richard Branson, Continues Nap

If you are going to steal a nap it might be best to guarantee your boss isn’t around — unless, of course, your boss is Richard Branson.

The Virgin Group founder is likely to turn a sleeping employee into a hilarious photo opportunity, which is exactly how things played out earlier this month as Branson visited Sydney operations.

Branson spelled out his time in Australia in a blog post on the company’s website.

He left some Internet real estate to highlight an airline George Costanza who failed to take a nap incognito, taking a siesta in the open where an iconic business magnate can happen upon the scene.

Here is an absolute beauty of a moment.

First off, congratulations to the employee for managing to fall asleep on what looks to be one uncomfortable looking couch. He looks about as tucked in as stock-image actor pretending to be asleep.

In any case, Branson walked in and found this sleepy Gus sans the drool or snoring that usually comes in tandem with a truly epic nap fest.

Via the blog, Branson explains: “This guy wasn’t up to much at all – I caught him sleeping on the job! Wow, did he get a shock when I woke him up. He must have thought he was dreaming because he went straight back to sleep. To be fair, he was on standby, getting some much needed rest.”

The unidentified man deserved his sleep according to Branson. However, if Richard Freaking Branson walks into the room and wakes me up I’m not sleeping until I brag on all necessary social media channels.

There is simply no way I close my eyes and go right back to sleep. Then again, some people just take their naps far more seriously than others.
