    start threads about what you had for lunch.. what servers you are upgrading this afternoon.. your complete afternoon schedule including trips to the cappucino machines and washroom breaks.

    I'm not fortunate enough to have a "job" where huge amounts of time are wasted. There's always something to do as a chef. Usually we wish we had MORE time to accomplish everything we need to do.


    They need to make you clean your own offices!!! Time to lean, time to clean (the owner's mantra).

    I guess Tribe at work when I'm bored... but it's slow today, so this isn't helping much... :p

    so my method isn't working anymore.
    I'm dying.

    how about we think up creative excuses to get the rock outta here!!!

    what is a reasonable excuse at 2:45 tuesday to leave work for the day?

    my problem is I leave work quite a bit.
    its not that I need to be permitted... I can go whenever -
    I just want it to seem legit.

    but I've pretty much used the gauntlet I think - booo to too much slacking!!
