TikTok user ss4xgoku1 just wanted to have a sandwich at a Subway restaurant. But when he saw what was unfolding in front of him, he pulled out his phone and starting recording a video.

The clip begins after he had placed the order. The Subway employee is topping the sub with meat and vegetables.

But as she moves on to adding the spices, her movements become slower and slower.

Her head begins to sink further and further down. At first only her green cap touches the sandwich.

Finally, her face, which is covered by a mask, lands on the bread. The woman is fast asleep, with the half-prepared sub almost acting as her pillow!

TikTok users are divided
