The Sleeping TTC Fare Collector Photo Needs a Caption

A very deep sleeping TTC employee's photo spread through the series of tubes that is the Internet like wildfire earlier today. Torontoist has done some digging for the story, and a representative from the TTC has said that they've seen the photo of the worker, and that it's reason for concern. They're looking into the incident further, and what they'll probably learn is that the guy was totally zonked and simply passed out (it's not like I've never been tired enough to inadvertently catch a zed or two at work).

But... maybe he's a new dad and was kept up by a screaming baby all through the previous night? Maybe he has undiagnosed narcolepsy? Maybe he's not sleeping at all? Here's a chance to jokingly look at things from the TTC collector's side. Caption this!
