Various CTA sleeping styles
After an exhaustive study (it made me sleepy), I can report on the most common CTA sleeping positions:
- Head leaned back. An older woman under 5 feet tall, feet barely reaching the floor, naps in the aisle seat. Her head leans all the way back so that it fits snugly under the raised grab bar on top of the seat.
- Lolling, supported head. These folks lean their head against the wall, window or glass partition. More often than not, their head rolls back and forth on the support device.
- Straight-up sleeper. I really admire these guys. They just sit in their seat -- some even stand -- with their head held straight up, eyes closed, sawing logs. Their head barely moves -- no sudden nods that wake them up. Such talent.
