I thought I was having a crappy Monday morning...then I saw these photos and realized my life ain't so bad after all. Here are 17 people who probably wish they'd just slept through the day:

1. "Thirteen and a half years ago when I was in the Army, I took a powernap and I woke up with this next to my face."
