AIBU in thinking students should be working hard in the daylight hours and not need blooming naps and if they do need a nap (God help us) what's wrong with a flipping chair do they really need to spend £40 000 on four nap pods while half the world starves I personally think they need to get their sleeves rolled up

What I thought was that I'd never be able to take a nap on one, knowing there was a queue of people outside also waiting to have a nap. It would be like using public toilets at busy times, you feel you must get in and out as quickly as possible! grin

Ahh, bless. Have no idea what a nap pod is though.

What's wrong with the traditional student nap of dozing off in the library, head down on an open textbook?

A few nap pods won't cope with a whole college full of sleepy students. They'll have to book five-minute slots in advance and turf out the previous sleeper when their turn is due.

The student to pod ratio is 28,000 to four. students back sleep pods

Better to give 4 x £10,000 bursaries to some struggling students....preferably ones who can stay awake during daylight hours.

If he needs a nap at meal times littlest manages with his head down on his highchair tray - doesn't need a pod!

I suspect this began as a student lark, "Yes of course we want nap pods!" and snowballed.

The article where I heard about these pods referred to them being used by high powered execs not students. Winston Churchill swore by his naps but there are not many of his ilk around . I too think the money could have been better used.
