If you have a job where you can nap they don't really need you.

As a commercial pilot, I respectfully disagree.  The autopilot can handle most of the work UNTIL SOMETHING GOES WRONG.  Then you need to wake me up so I can save your lives.

Try working IT.. can be swamped for days to where you are on edge and snap at people.. then wind up with 2 or 3 days in a row where not much goes on.  Also, if you are in a place where people stack 10 hour days mon-thurs and the place doesn't have half as many people on fri... it makes Fridays rather nice.

On one slow day, guys in the dept were saying they were going to go do this and that (AKA goof the hell off) so I said I was going to go try and do some organizing in the dungeon (parts room and where computers went to die) if can make it halfway there without being stopped to fix something, which has happened every single time I've tried to do it the past few months...
Went down, leaned back, nice and COLD AC in there, and ZZZZzzzzzzzz. Woke up 3 damned hours later, almost time to go home. LOL  Came home so refreshed I mowed the lawn :)

Brain hemispheric polyphasic sleep biatches! Two full time jobs. Two girlfriends. One favorite hooker. Only 3 hour commute times. Plenty of sleep.

It doesn't do a very good job of talking to ATC though.

Back when I used to fly freight and the company would use the "freight-delay" loophole to extend our duty day long past 14 hours, there were times I'd ask my co-pilots to nap while I kept an eye on things. My reasoning was if I suspected an instrument approach at our destination, I wanted at least one set of eyes to be well enough rested to catch any potential mistakes.

Seems like the FAA and NTSB are actively considering allowing the same practice.
