This young man sat next to an older gentleman on the bus, who seemed to be asleep. Or was he asleep? People tweet everything these days – including random moments from their daily lives – so why not this moment? This person was afraid his seatmate on the bus wasn’t sleeping and might not wake up.
He tweeted, “please be asleep. Please be asleep. Please be asleep,” and got 30.7k retweets and 71.3k likes. Over 70,000 people liked this post, and people were probably on their toes waiting for this update and praying that he was asleep, and not something else. Then, he posted an update: “my man just coughed himself awake and pulled out a 4pk of Oreos.” We can imagine all these people who followed the post sighed in relief!
