Sleeping on the Job – Or Just Enjoying Auckland’s Waterfront?

At the buskers festival on Auckland Anniversary I came upon this sleeping man on the lawn.  His vest reads Event Security and it was at this moment I knew I this guy sleeping on the job was the perfect photo for Wordless Wednesday:

Sleeping on the Job

Right after I snapped it, he was awakened by someone he knew. He sat up quickly, loudly shouting “What’s going on? Where the f%^◊ am I?”

Turns out I’ve been duped.  I decided to figure out the writing on the rest of the shirt: Hand over your b . . . Well it turns out, he is not security, the shirt actually reads: Event Security, Hand Over Your Booze.

Either way, here is a close up of his hand, sleeping with a lit cigarette is never too cool:

    Hi Rhonda .. just taking time out enjoying the sun .. perhaps spoiling others’ rest with the ‘fag’?!

    The thought of lying on grass (is it?) in the sun .. is for a few months too far perhaps … it’s not cold here, but boy is it wet ..

    Cheers Hilary
