1.  Flu Season

Having someone in the home with the flu is like having someone with the plague. The best thing to do is to quarantine them and have no further contact until they recover. If that’s not an option, however, then giving them their own bed for a few nights is a good second choice. The sleeper bed provides a comfortable place for you to sleep while they recover.

2.  Planned Guests


Planned Things


Sometimes the socially appropriate thing to do is to invite someone to stay over at your home. You do this with a smile on your face even as you grit your teeth and hope for the best. Sure, your in-laws criticize everything from the way you make coffee to your political opinions, but you can’t make them stay at a hotel – and keep your spouse happy. For such occasions, having a comfortable sleeper bed lets you score extra points with family and friends by offering them the bed while you graciously offer to sleep on the couch. Little do they know that they’re getting the short end of the deal now!

3.  Unexpected Guests



Sometimes it’s not the planned guests that have you scrambling for an extra place to sleep for the night. It’s that guy from college who used to think you were best friends because he followed you everywhere you went. Well you ran into him at a happy hour and voila, you have a guest. Fortunately, you don’t have to let him into your bedroom, because you’ve got a sleeper bed.

4.  Out Too Late With the Friends

It was a fun night, to be sure. But if you come back too late and wake your spouse, well, let’s just say that’s trouble you don’t want. Never fear! You’ve got a great place to sleep tonight anyway.

5.  You Said Something That Didn’t Go Over Well


Should Not Have Said That


In such cases, it really doesn’t matter whether what you said is right or wrong, all that matters is getting out of the way of the storm until it blows over. Fortunately, you’ve got a sleeper bed to stay on.

6.  Kids Have Taken Over the Bed

Sure, the thunder sounded like the end of the world, but that was hours ago. You got up to go to the bathroom and the kids spread out over the whole bed. Sure, you could throw the bums out, but then you’ll have to go through the whole bedtime routine all over again. Tonight’s a good night to sleep on the sleeper bed.

7.  Pets Have Taken Over the Bed

8.  Late Night Solo Netflix Marathon

You promised yourself you were just going to finish this one last episode. That was two seasons ago. Sure, you could hit stop and spend the rest of the night lying awake wondering what happens next, or you could fold out the sleeper bed and keep the good times rolling.

9.  Laundry Hasn’t Been Put Away Yet

Your New Year’s resolution is to fold and put away the laundry rather than living out of the hamper. You dumped all your clean clothes onto the bed, so you’d have to put them away. Now that you think about it, if the clothes aren’t in the hamper, you are keeping your resolution. You just must sleep somewhere else. Not a problem.

10.  No Bedsheets Are Clean

One of the unforeseen drawbacks of leaving all your clothes on the bed is that when you finally get to the bottom of the pile, you find your bedsheets that haven’t been washed in … a while. You should probably just sleep on the sleeper bed again.

11.  Late Work Night and the Living Room Gets the Best Wi-Fi

Guess you’re pulling an all-nighter tonight. The Wi-Fi just never seems to reach your bedroom, no matter what you do; guess you’ll be pulling out the sleeper bed.

12.  Pet Fell Asleep on Your Lap and You Can’t Move

You were just about to head to bed for the night when the dog decided your lap would make a good pillow, or the cat just curled up and started snoring. You can’t very well move now, can you? Good thing your sleeper bed is co comfortable.

Sometimes you just have to stick by your principles. Sure, there’s a place for compromise in any relationship, but everyone knows that the toilet paper should only be placed on the roll in one direction, and you’re not about to back down now! They think you’re bluffing? You’ll show them! After all, that sleeper bed is a great place to sleep, if you have one.

14.  You Fell Asleep Because It’s So Comfortable, and This is Your Life Now
