The Coroporate World

Top Ten Things To Do When you have NOTHING to do at work

10. Write pointless e-mail to your friends
9. Balance your checkbook
8. Highlight things
7. Write numbers on post-it notes
6. Read over your companies Web site page, pretend like you are really interested in learning more about it
5. Listen to all the different ring tones on your phone, choose the one that makes you the happiest.
4. Apply lotion to your hands over and over again
3. Go to the bathroom
2. Take off your shoes and rub your feet on the carpet
1. Make a top ten list of things to do when you have nothing to do at work

For some reason I have this new obsession with top ten lists. I created this one the other day when I literally had NOTHING to day at work from 11:30 to 4:30... I felt like I was grounded to my cube or something. I am told things will pick up after month end, man I hope so!!!!!

I TOTALLY understand! All summer long I've worked 9 hours a day in an office. It was pretty dead...i mean completely dead. I bet I checked my email a million times. I'm happy summer's over...but for that reason only. :)

I wish that i had time at work to do all the things on the list. I don't think that it would work out to well for me though.

I remember the days when we would do some of these things. Especially the beginning of the month. We couldn't do any work as they update the system the first 3-5 days! I might just start doing that at the Maxwells. They wouldn't know......
