How many of you are supposed to be working right now instead of scanning the forum? I'll confess first, I jump in here while working... for short bits.

I'm only supposed to be working if I have something to do. If I'm here, I don't.

I am at work right now, and I probably have stuff to do. Generally, the more homework I have to do, the more I post here to delay doing it....grr.

Pff, doesn't matter with my job, as long as I get it done.
Since I'm spending 60+ hrs at work (no paid overtime), I do throw in some 'NN to stay sane.

No, wait, scratch the last part.

If the goofing is relegated to lunch hour, does it count?

When I was working at a company in Manhattan for the past few months I would only be on here before work started or during lunch breaks. Now I am back in school and depending on the class I will post a bit.

I probably hit these forums 10 times a day from work...something my corporate (GE) overseers track closely I'm sure. My justification is that I don't smoke, so I probably spend less time here than co-workers who go outside five or six times a day.

Still, I could spend a lot more time here if MacNN would just change its name to sixsigmaperformance.com

Whenever they do not give me work, I am on the internet. If they want me to work they should give me work. I do a tons of things that are not work relate but as soon as they give me something, I am off the net.

Not only am I working right now, but I'm working at home today, so I didn't even have to leave the house to goof off!

I post here while I wait for Quark to print. Two-minute print times suck.

Of course! All the time (obviously, look at my post count!)...but do I still get all of my work done and always on time? You better believe it.

Why the heck did Monique even post this ?
We were talking about goofing off at work, and she drops that knowledge on us ?

corner of 5th & Main, perhaps
Personally I find it hilarious that you have the hots for my gramma. Especially seeins how she is 3x your age, and makes your Brittney-Spears-wannabe 30-something wife look like a rag doll who went thru WWIII with a burning stick of dynamite up her a** :)

My job = paid to goof off. So yes, I am currently at work, getting payed, and posting on the 'NN.

Any ramblings are entirely my own, and do not represent those of my employers, coworkers, friends, or species

Some sort of phone center, maybe the phone directory call center.
