MetroNaps: Do more with your day

Welcome to the future of workforce productivity; the MetroNaps Pod, a room within a room. They had an ad in the newspaper the other day. Another one of those things that made me take a step back and wonder is this for real? And it is...

This was the caption in The StarPhoenix Saturday, November 13:

Paying money to take a nap
A company called MetroNaps is setting up its daytime slumber stations in the Vancouver airport next month. For $15 weary travelers will be able to snooze in the slumber station for 20 minutes.

What a rip off!!

$5 would be even pushing it. Why not just sleep on one of the many, many seats they have in airports?

That is what I was thinking. But I guess with such a marvelous set of options, who could resist? I wonder if it comes with a seatbelt...

Order Lunch (Optional). MetroNaps™ offers everything from Salad to Sandwiches to Sushi. Order before you nap; your food will be waiting for you when you wake!

Recharge. Drift off as you listen to tranquil, relaxation-inducing music. The MetroNaps™ pod will wake you with a gentle combination of light and vibration.

Refresh. Use the MetroNaps™ Wake Station's lotion, facial spritz and lemon-scented hand towels to help bring you back to the real world.

Return. Continue your day feeling completely renewed. The whole process takes less than 25 minutes.

How silly. Paying to nap? This is what happens to a Western society that has drifted away from observing a Biblical seventh-day rest. We humans need a day for family, worship and just good, old rest! Early pioneers credited this rest to their success in reaching destinations beyond their imaginations. I love my Sundays!
