More Evidence That Brits Are Weird October 25, 2007

Posted by Michael in Crime.

What do British men do at night when they’re naked?

Walk around.

LONDON (Reuters) – A surge in naked sleepwalking among guests has led one of Britain’s largest budget hotel groups to re-train staff to handle late-night nudity.

Travelodge, which runs more than 300 business hotels in Britain, says sleepwalking rose seven-fold in the past year, and 95 percent of the somnambulants are scantily clad men.

“We have seen an increased number of cases over the years so it is important that our staff know how to help sleepwalking when it arises,” Leigh McCarron, the chain’s sleep director, said in a statement.

True Story: About 25 years ago or so, me and three friends were driving home from a hunting trip, and about 200 miles from home decided to put up for the night in a motel and enjoy one last night of binge drinking.

It was one of those motels where when the minute you stepped out of your room you were on the sidewalk and about 5 feet from the parking lot. One of my buddies woke up in the middle of the night needing to drain the radiator, and in a drunken stooper, walked out the door into the parking lot. He woke up and realised that he didn’t have his key. And what was worse, he couldn’t remember what room number we were in, and didn’t have the guts to bang on doors and wake people up until he found the right one. He decided he’d go see if we left any doors open on the suburban and sleep in there but we hadn’t. So he decided he’d slide up under the suburban and sleep on the parking lot. But it was November and he was freezing his ass off shortly. He was finally forced to go to the front office and wake up the clerk and ask what room we were in. The dude bought his story and told him our room number. He came knocking on the door and since I was sleeping on the floor nearby, I opened it. He didn’t want to talk about it at that time. Now lest I sound really, really gay, I admit that he wasn’t totally naked. He was wearing his boxers and a wife-beater. We nicknamed him the nightstalker from then on.

My brother in law used to sleepwlak when he was younger. He wouldn’t even know it and would wake up in t he morning with filthy socks because he would go out into the woods that were near their house at the time. Miraculously, he never fell or got hurt or lost in the woods.

To this day, it still creeps out my in-laws.

Eddie, it would creep me out that he slept in his socks.

Had a roommate in college who slept-walked. He’d sit up, talk, pick up the phone and talk to a dial tone, even smoke a cigarette.

I finally figured out how to tell when he was really asleep, he never put on his glasses.

Creepy shit, still.

Patty Ann:
Yeah, he should have just worn some JWF
