What do you do when you are bored at work?
« on: Nov 21, 03, 11:58:49 am CST »

You know here I sit and there really isn't much goin on today, my responsiblities have changed since I moved back to my old position, so I find myself with more than ample down time. (Which is nice when you get it but tedious if there's nothing else.)
So my question is what do you do when you are bored at work

Work? What's that? I could use some steady employment for a change...

Anyone looking for a multimedia developer?

I'm doing it right now.  If I didn't have time to look at the boards while at work I probably wouldn't look at all.

This is what I do when I'm bored at work, too.
Or I shoot rubber bands at other peoples desks, or make paper airplanes. Sometimes steal the mouse balls of co-workers or change the computer to left-handed mouse and watch them freak out.

Gardo, honey - luv ya  8)

Thanks for the laugh. I SOO needed it after this week !!

Free time at work?? Ha,ha ... WOW what a concept.
Working in a middle school where nothing ever goes according to plan (but that's a WHOLE different story in itself) if I get 20-30  minutes free I either run for coffee or catch up with other teachers I'm friends with.

Back when I used to be a corporate wage slave and have a few free minutes away from the hell that is end user software support, I'd . . .

    1.  Dust/spruce up my nondenominational altar created for programmer sacrifice.  (
It kept them on their toes and certain undesirables out of my office.)
2.  Wander about the office while wearing sunglasses with holographic skulls on them.
3.  Go on coffee runs that lasted longer than a lunch break.
4.  Use programmers for target practice.  (Hey, I bought 90% of the Nerf guns in that office, I might as well use them!)
5.  Waste time with online *cough* research.  (Like bidding for a killer velvet Morticia-like dress on ebay while in the midst of a conference call where my job was to pipe in with an "ummhmm" every few minutes.)

I visit a number of websites & forums...
This one....
Post in the NERO Larp International forums http://www.nerolarp.com/forum
I check out NERO Chapter sites in NC, SC, and DC areas
Check out ebay for hot deals on garb
Sneak onto AIM, email the ladies, post in live journal... gather info for my nero roleplaying website.... general geeky geeky crap.
Sometimes I do my personal finances..
put my face up different places

Okay, I'm jealous...

:eek:

Damn all of you who have TIME to be bored at work!  I'm so bogged down with customer service issues that I don't have time to get all my stuff done!  I run around like a frelling chicken with my head cut off from the moment I walk in the door to when I finally get to leave to go home.  Good thing we have no internet access to distract me, I'd really never get anything done!

Seriously, it's making me crazy...

LOL...I have to agree with Entropy, I have no time to be bored at work. As of right now, I work at an unloading dock and I'm constantly moving freit and boxes. Tedious labor, but it pays the bills till I'm done with College.

Luckily things slow down at my job this time of year because most of the mokeys that break the equipment are away on vacation...like I will be in a few days.  

Still one of the things I use to keep from getting bored at work is websurf my buns off.

Email, fan sites, research at random, play Kings of Chaos (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/recruit.php?uniqid=4nw9tcbw) and Settlers of Catarn (http://settlers.cs.northwestern.edu/) and keep up with the developments on the return of my favorite TV show Dr. Who (http://www.gallifreyone.net/newstv.php).
