Do you know why no one noticed Los Angeles County employee Rebecca Wells had died at her desk?
Because seeing a government worker sleeping at their desk surprises none of her co-workers. Its commonplace at all government run facilities to see people sound to sleep at their desks, in their cars, in the lounge and where ever else they can sit and do nothing for a hundred grand a year.
This is not to say that Rebecca Wells was one of the countless thousands of lazy, worthless humans that work at all levels of government. She might have very well been a hard working individual that worked hard enough to pick up the slack of all her lazy and inept co-workers.
We will never know. But I have been in a lot of government offices of (insert name here) where people don’t give two shits about anyone or anything.

An L.A. County employee apparently died while working in her cubicle on Friday, but no one noticed for quite some time.
51-year-old Rebecca Wells was found by a security guard on Saturday afternoon.
She was slumped over on her desk in the L.A. County Department of Internal Services.
“I came in Saturday to do a little work, and I saw them when they were taking her out,” co-worker Hattie Robertson told KTLA.
The exact time of death is not clear, but detectives say that, at worst, she had been dead for a day before her body was discovered.
The last time a co-worker saw her alive was Friday morning around 9:00 a.m., according to Downy police detectives.
Wells, a USC graduate, was a longtime compliance auditor, and had recently become a grandmother, according to co-workers.
Investigators have not determined the official cause of death, but they say foul play is not suspected.
