    Ha! Good one.

    Naw, it's pretty laid back here. All i have to worry about is access control, because we're kinda close to the nastier part of town. I just sit around, listen to mp3's, drink tea and lurk Bullshido for most....er, all of my shift.

    I can't remember where I heard this, maybe it was a co-worker quoting somebody famous on TV recanting something said by someone a long time ago, but my job is basically: "seconds of heart-pounding chaos punctuated by hours of mind-numbing boredom" or something.

    If you're active military you get a custom title for it to denote your experience. PM me your unit and any related details you can and I'll take care of that for you.

    I run a company.

    20% percent of my employees do 80% of the work. Unfortunately, the other 20% of the work still needs to get done.

    I'll drop a true slacker. The rest get paid commensurate with what they contribute.

    Your boss probably knows what you're up to - your paycheck implies it. Maybe you're lucky in finding a girlfriend who doesn't know any better.

    Seeing as how most of my forum postings and such are done during work, yes I slack a lot. But I usually (sometimes at least) have the rest of my work finished before I go about playing on the net all day.

    Well Christmas Miracle, I'm glad you said that because I am secretly your employer, don't bother going to work tomorrow, you are fired.

    (I knew lurking around these foruns would pay up)

    PS: Merry Christmas Mwhahahahaa!

    I work in an insurance call centre (for about.. the next 24 hours). I sit round for 15 minutes before calls. Soon I shall leave and go to Fujitsu, work with a friend's dad, and sit round doing even less. Life is good.

    My job as a computer programmer is so goddamn boring that I've already planned the next 4 years of my life in terms of workout plans/goals, martial arts goals and new career paths to pursue. I've spent literally hundreds of hours(At this job) determining which MAs I want to take, what future career I want to pursue and doing all the net research I can on it.

    I expect 2006 to be just as uneventful, so I intend to install some foreign language software on my machine and really prepare for where I want to go next.

    Oh, and I Do take care of my daily tasks and whatever else is asked of me, and I get along well with my team. So my bosses consider me a valuable part of the dept.

    I'd just like to point out that Liokault is the chief safety engineer at that big fuel-dump in the UK that exploded at the weekend.
