It’s one of those universal rules that all students know: you’re not supposed to fall asleep in class. I remember sitting in my morning biology class in high school some days and having my head do the slow tilt only to jolt back awake several times, desperately trying to stay focused because I knew the teacher would be upset if I actually did drift off to sleep.
One teacher found a student sleeping through his class one day, but his response to it caught the attention of the internet.
