Sleeping Air Traffic Controllers

It's funny when you're trying to watch a movie with your spouse, she/he are clearly sleeping but when you catch them they always say they are not sleeping and sometimes even try to explain what is actually happening in the movie, that's even more funny. It's funny when you are at work and you catch one of your fellow employee's falling asleep during a boring meeting. But it's a whole other thing when the people you depend on to make your airline travel as safe as possible continue to get caught taking naps or even watching movies.  This is unreal and unacceptable.  It's bad enough that air travelers have been asked to give, give and give some more when it comes to the pricing and experience of airline travel, but now we have to worry that the guy that is responsible for helping my plane not crash into another one is either sleeping or watching his favorite episode of 24 instead of keeping an eye and ear out in the sky's

Misery Really Loves Company welcomes all the exhausted air traffic controllers that have not heard of a wonderful product called 5 Hour Energy.  In this particular story a not so bright controller left his microphone on while he was watching a DVD on his laptop.  So while pilots are asking for instruction all they get is an earful of Samuel L. Jackson doing what he does best. Guy's, your killing me here.  I'm all for catching a nap on the job, God knows I have done it several times, but I was monitoring cell site towers not PLANES!  Get a grip fella's and stop playing around with our lives.
