A man goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having a nightmare; the man wakes him and asks his son if he is okay. The son replies he is scared because he dreamed that Aunt Lisa had died. The father assures the son that Aunt Lisa is fine and sends him to bed. The next day, Aunt Lisa dies. One week later, the man again goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having another nightmare; the man again wakes his son. The son this time says that he had dreamed that his grandfather had died. The father assures the son that his grandfather is fine and sends him to bed. The next day, the grandfather dies. One week later, the man again goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having another nightmare; the man again wakes his son. The son this time says that he had dreamed that dad had died. The father assures the son that he is okay and sends the boy to bed. The man goes to bed but cannot sleep because he is so terrified. The next day, the man is scared for his life -- he is sure he's going to die. After dressing he drives very cautiously to work. He doesn't eat lunch because he is scared of choking. He avoids everyone because he's sure he will somehow be killed. He jumps at every noise and hides for most of the day under his desk. Upon walking in his front door at the end of the day, he see his wife. "Good God, Dear," he proclaims, "I've just had the worst day of my entire life!" She responds, "You think your day was bad, the UPS man dropped dead on the doorstep this morning."

The top data-point was the Bureau of Labor Statistics' tally of average hours worked for resident. They also factored in unemployment rate, figuring that residents can’t be hard-working if they don’t have jobs. Commute time and volunteer hours were also considered. Movoto tracked the most sleepless cities, as well, figuring that people who aren't sleeping are staying up later to work. Finally the list factored in the cost of living because residents of cities with a high cost of living have to work hard.
All told, Seattle has the right combination of factors to top the list. Here’s the list, in order:
... On the other hand, here are the biggest slacker cities in America using those same factors:
