Another Day, Another Air Traffic Controller Asleep On The Job

The Air Traffic Controller Sleeping Epidemic of 2011 continues. Yet another worker responsible for keeping planes from crashing into one another has fallen asleep on the job, with the FAA investigating yet again.

CNN reports the third case of an air traffic controller allegedly catching some shut-eye occurred Wednesday morning at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

If you’ve ever fallen asleep on the job, where were you working and how long did you manage to nod off?
