college dorm meets office

For workers in a relaxed office environment, this "Slacker Chair" will make your entire workday like an afternoon in a bean-bag. Except you're there in the morning too. And sometimes into the night. So it's not really just an afternoon. You know what, just forget the whole thing.

Stick it to me:

Suggested notes to self: 
You're awesome.
Eyes on the Prize!
Your hair looks good today, like really really good.
What's with today, today?
The ends justify the means.
Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt.
Damn the man.
Hang in there, little kitten.
Did you lose weight?

idle time is murder on the nails

I don't care how bored you are sitting at your desk but painting your nails with corrector fluid isn't an option. It's just gross and amateur desk jockey amusement.

we could go at anytime...

A 14-year-old boy from Jiaozhou in China died of blood loss after the gas canister inside his chair exploded, sending shrapnel into his bottom. The gas is used to operate the hydraulic pillar that raises and lowers seats, but poorly-constructed office chairs have caused similar injuries before, according to China Voice.

When all else fails...

My boss takes the cake:

Wouldn't it be loverly if your boss looked like this? I'd happily take orders from this dude. Plus, if you get angry at him, you can just take a chomp. Then he can say, "Sheesh! Can't you take constructive criticism? Don't fucking bite my head off, biatch. Yer fired!"

inappropriate office attire?

I say appropriate!

HR won't even notice

Um...I don't feel like coming in today. Is it okay if I send in a replacement?
I promise they'll be more productive.


Employee's Multitasking Doesn't Include Work

PHOENIX—Though 27-year-old paralegal Pete Gossling prides himself on his ability to efficiently accomplish numerous tasks at once, none of these activities is actual work, his coworkers said Tuesday. "It's amazing—he'll be carrying on eight IM conversations at once, keep six web browsers open to different YouTube clips, and still be able to forward e-mail after e-mail of jokes from his uncle," said legal secretary Jennifer Paige, adding that when Gossling is out of the office, he uses his PDA to compete in several online poker games simultaneously. "I've never once received a work-related e-mail from him or seen him working on a legal brief, however." Gossling admitted that he often overextends himself so much that work simply isn't possible.

When you do have to squeeze in some "real work" do everyone a favor and don't be a distracted desk jockey. No one cares about your thread.
