honestly Hoops, the place is a gold mine.
its a multi leveled auditorium, filled with long comfy couches.
Iassume they built it as a social room, but its become a nap room. everyone goes there after lunch or on their breaks and sleeps.
all the lights are off, and just a bit of light comes in through windows... its dead silent in there (with the occasional snoring), and its the nap room that everyone knows about yet never talks about.
while i was at RBC i used that room every day at 1:30-2:30 after lunch to sleep.
i was actually getting paid to sleep!
hahahahaha

Wow.

I thought I was the only one. I am at York and Wellington, I often go get a backrub, at the great american backrub (not a rub and tug gents) just to catch a 20 minute snooze. Thought it would be a great idea to open a napping station in the path, tons of people would pay 20 bucks for a 20 minute snooze.

I don't really take a nap all that often, but if I do I sleep in my car. If you are parked underground and have a large vehicle it can't get much better than that.

I also though about a napping "club" in downtown London a few years ago - I don't think London would be a large enough market to try it, but Toronto for sure. That's why I googled to Toronto, even though I live in London to see if anybody has done this yet.

I would pay the right price for the occasional nap.

Cleanliness and quietness - those are the keys.

I've tried that twice but was way too paranoid about a boss or co-worker for whatever reason looking into my car and seeing me.

As I said it really depends on the car. Do you have tinted windows? can you put the back seats down so it's all flat?
In the Jeep I would just nap on the back seat because I was too lazy to adjust it every time. But now that I drive van, I mostly keep the back seats folded in the floor (or whatever you call it), so it's flat. I even have a sleeping bag in there since I go camping/fishing fairly often
So I don't think anyone can see me, but even if they could, they can go fuck themselves, because there is nothing wrong with having a nap while on break.

I saw an executive doing this at work in the parkade. He was on older guy and he had his had down with his chin touching his chest. I looked closely to make sure he wasn't dead lol.
