How to do nothing at work and get away with it?

on Jul 27, 2011 @ 02:03 pm

I'm sure there are days when you just don't feel like working. What do you do then? My friend stumbled upon this and found it hilarious so I just want to share it with all of you.

Watch this video of How To Do Nothing At Work And Still Get Paid. In my opinion, it takes a lot of effort to pull off these tricks so you might as well do actual work.

Be honest, have you ever tried any of these little tricks? And if you have, how effective was it?

I have to agree.. some of that seems like more work than actually working lol.
Although I used to manage a subway, and I had a little office for everything, and I will admit I kept everything looking like a worked-in clutter (when it was mostly useless/old paperwork scattered everywhere) and when I was feeling lazy I'd pop in,shut the door, and"clean the office" and catch up on paperwork... when really I'd just be online or playing solitaire on the computer. Whenever I'd hear someone coming I could just grab a few handfulls of papers stacked somewhere and throw them out, so it looked like I was cleaning up & there was a visible difference when I was finished. Looked like I spent an hour organizing paperwork etc when all I did was throw out the top layer of junk lol.

I have a coworker who's an expert 'over worked' gal. Huh... not a big fan of her. Anyways its funny thou! Both the site and her strategies seem tiring to me, much easier to actually do the work then do all of this :-p

Slackers! I have much too much German in me to pretend to work. I like being productive and accomplishing things. Laziness is actually a major pet peeve for me. It's like Tammy said. It's more work faking it than actually doing the job. And there aren't any lies to cover.

procrastination works :P on Aug 01, 2011 @ 01:10 am

lol... instead of finding 1001 ways to avoid doing work.. I actually find procrastination helps me get things done, as crazy as it sounds. :-P
For example, I used to manage a Subway, and if I had like, 5 big things to clean, paperwork, and food prep to do, and I couldn't get myself motivated I'd make a list of everything that needed doing, pick one thing on the list that I absolutely did NOT want to do, and do everything possible to avoid it. So while procrastinating on say, cleaning the oven, I'd get everything (or almost everything) else done lol
Even at home.. I'm so horrible with cleaning the bedroom, so to avoid doing that I'll go crazy with doing dishes, laundry, clean the floors, dusting, etc etc. Then when people come over, me and Jesse have a clean apartment, and I just keep the bedroom door closed LOL
