Eish, Mondays can be hard. However, while some of us push through the day others find it difficult to keep their eyes open.

One man could no longer resist the urge to take a nap while at work and his co-workers played a prank on him.

The footage shows the man sleeping while his colleagues gather around him. They then starte clapping and the man gets startled awake. Not knowing what was going on, the sleepy man started clapping along before realising he was the centre of attention.

The video was shared on South Africa Live's Facebook page and it managed to gather over 154 000 views in just seven hours.

Many South Africans found the footage hilarious and some even related to how tired the man must have been to fell asleep at work.

Mthombeni Karabo West Karabo commented:

"Monday is not a day for work."

Ebrahim Saidi added:

"I just like the way he reacted after he realised that people are clapping hands for him, sleeping on duty is normal, especially Mondays."

However, some found the man's behaviour unacceptable and called for action to be taken against him.

Christian Uduoba wrote:

"There is no excuse for sleeping on duty. Even if Mondays are declared a holiday, some people would still find it difficult going to work on Tuesday. Early to bed, early to rise. That's what I practice and preach. Weekends are for resting and not partying or clubbing the whole day."

Brian Coleman commented:

"I don't think it's something to be proud of. Maybe a verbal warning should be the route to take."
