At the end of the work day, if we’re the least bit tired, and we’re lucky enough to grab a seat on the subway ride home, there’s a good chance we’re dozing off, at least for a minute or two. Not by choice — the soothing undulations of the train are just too powerful to resist, and like a tiny baby, we are inevitably lulled to sleep. We don’t know how normal that is; maybe we should see a doctor. But we do sympathize with an off-duty police officer who snoozed on the subway last week, and, after a straphanger took his photo, was lightly disciplined — he’ll “get some vacation time docked and have the rules explained to him again,” according to Gothamist. Then again, we usually don’t have a loaded gun on our hip when we take a subway nap, so it’s not exactly apples to apples.
