Where taking a nap is encouraged at work!

Well ok, maybe not encouraged, but not frown upon!  I definitely studied the wrong field and went into the wrong industry.

Recently one of my friend took me on a tour at his job, an IT company whom shall remain nameless.  I don't know if it matters but there might be certain protocols or laws or I don't know what out there...so just in case...they shall remain nameless...

So anyhoo...I was on a tour, the office was like a maze...different levels with endless cubicles.  If I was alone, I definitely would've gotten lost!  But the place I was so curious to check out, their break room...or break area I should say.

They have ping pong tables, pool tables, arcade games, xbox 360, Wii, and I believe he mentioned guitar hero...really? yes really!  I asked him so you guys can just take a break and come in here whenever you want to and play and no one will really say anything?  He said yeah as long as we pretty much finish what we're supposed to be doing.  I asked him so whats to prevent people from just being in here playing all day?  He said well we're all pretty responsible adults and so we know what we gotta be doing... This...was my expression in my head o_O hehe...because I totally know I would have been in that break room all day playing guitar hero until it was time to go home! lol

Then we entered another room where they had some big bean bags laying around on the floor, and this.................

No it is not a spaceship!  This, from what I was told, is a nappod napod nap-pod? Oh I don't know how to spell it! A nap pod...It is for them when they get too stressed out, for them to come in here and take a nap...yes you heard right!  Take A Nap!  I love this company already...I get stressed all the time...where do I apply???
