“My wife says I talk in my sleep, but nobody at work has ever mentioned it”

"My family/husband/wife says I talk in my sleep, but nobody at work has ever mentioned it”—that is, the speaker sleeps at work— is a jocular work saying that has been printed on many images.

“My husband says I talk in my sleep, but I’m skeptical. Nobody at work has ever mentioned it” was printed in The Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY) on May 23, 1993. “My wife says I talk in my sleep. How come nobody at work has ever mentioned it!” was printed in The Country Today (Eau Claire, WI) on June 23, 1993.

“My family says I talk in my sleep but nobody at work has ever mentioned it?” was posted on Twitter by MindGames on August 23, 2012. The “family” version has been popular since 2012.
