Gentleman steals $2,100 from an office safe, then gets busted after falling asleep mid-robbery

A man on the federal wanted list for repeated crimes in Russia broke into an office building and stole 140,000 rubles ($2,100 USD) from a safe. He had brought a toolbox worth of tools, including "screwdrivers, wire cutters, a hammer, a nail puller, and a bunch of keys, to break into several private company offices, looking for valuables," according to Oddity Central.

But before taking off, he spotted a leather armchair and couldn't resist. The gentleman took a seat and fell into a deep slumber, bungling any plan of escape.

Asleep for hours, he was finally spotted on a security camera. Police came and had an easy time nabbing the man, who was still snoozing comfortably with his bag of cash.

Needless to say, the 36-year-old burglar was arrested.

Pope confesses he sometimes seeks shut-eye while praying

Praying is boring and Pope Francis is sparing us some of the Catholic guilt for dozing off while prostrating ourselves before God.

The Pope admitted to occasionally sleeping on the job while he prays.

“When I go to pray, a few times I fall asleep,” he said during an interview for TV2000 published Tuesday. Pope Francis also cited St. Therese’s belief that God appreciates it when people fall asleep while praying.

The Guardian reports His Holiness gets around seven hours of sleep each night, along with a nap after lunch.
