What’s worse, my office window’s on top of me. It’s tiny too. You’d think it’d be off to the side, with a nice downtown view… but everywhere I look, I see cubicles.

What kind of place puts a window on top of you?





on the plus side, I just walked out to my car and had a piece of strawberry candy

Top Ten Things To Do When You're Bored of Writing E-mails At Work
(moanings of a cube-farmer)

1. Declare "Tawk Like a Gangstah Day", and re-type all 'yo e-maylz in urban-onics.

2. Throw some curveballs at your favorite search engine; nothing skews an optimization heuristic like a search for "+midget +ASCII +pr0n +cookbook"

3. Attempt to move objects around your desk using only your mind and a cleverly-concealed length of string.

4. Arrange a bunch of little army men on your desk. Aim them all at one of your coworkers. Insist that it's "purely a defensive measure".

5, Create a blog for your cat. Fill it with ranting, political invective against "our simian masters".

6. Browse Monster.com for jobs that could potentially suck more than yours. Apply to them.

7. Clean your keyboard. With q-tips. And water. And go key by key until it's spotless.

8. Go to a random forum you've never visited, preferably one that caters to a topic you have no interest in and know nothing about. Jump on and ask lots of stupid questions.

9. Knit a hedghog.

10. It's all about Twizzler Pull-&-Peels...what could they do for your cubicle? What tasks could they automate?

Good job on their part LOL

you know what really sucks...

part of my job was to analyze 3 other departments. luckly for me i can do it remotely and just look at their input / output from the comfort of my desk.. that took half the day.. the other half is my real daily job in which i have 4 employees that i supervise and i let them do the mundane stuff and i take care of the hand grenades.

this is where it sucks... Ive gotten so good at doing what my boss needs that i am done in about 3 hrs tops !!! that leaves 6hrs of shear boredom

my boss is happy i save money, My dept is as efficient as it ever was, and he is happy to pay me for doing what i do.


i created my own monster... Myself...

p.s. I confirm. there is an end to the internet.....

Flying one of these around the office is a great way to kill time and make friends.
