Asleep on the Job

I couldn't resist posting this picture. I thought it was quite funny.

Apparently some fellow snapped this while trying to pay his fare to ride the subway in Toronto last month. He waited for a few minutes and took a couple of pictures. The poor ticket collector never woke up and missed quite a few people who were jumping over the turnstyles in order to avoid paying their fare.

The ticket collector certainly seems very comfortable. While I'm very amused by this photograph apparently the management at the Toronto Transit Commission are not. The employee in question is in a bit of hot water.
