Top Ten Ways You Can Tell That You’re Bored Of Your Job

I was just sitting around, hiding a solitaire window behind some spreadsheets, monitoring some bids on eBay, when I realized that I hadn’t done any work all day. But that’s okay, because that’s really one of the big benefits of JomaDeals: it’s not only for those looking for a great deal, but also an escape from the daily drudgery of white collar boredom. And what better day to do it than when we’re selling a beautiful Invicta Corduba Divers watch? This sleek but tough men’s watch is great at the office, but even better if the office suddenly fills with water and you need to swim your way to safety and rescue the hot receptionist. You may need to find a new job he next day, but hey! No need to replace the watch! (way to look at the silver lining). I, too, often waste time at work by going to JomaDeals, the very website I’m supposed to be working on. So I’ve made a type of top ten list. Maybe it’s not David Letterman calibre, but it’s at least B-grade, and I didn’t have to sleep with any of my staff to do it.
Top Ten Ways You Can Tell That You’re Bored Of Your Job:
10- You go to JomaDeals everyday to check out the new daily deal- then do it over and over again, even though the deals don’t change all day.
9- You’ve trained yourself to minimize the JomaDeals window (or e-Bay, whatever. I don’t get paid to plug other websites, people) at the sound of your boss’s footsteps.
8- You spend more time sitting on the toilet than sitting on your desk chair.
7- The highlight of your week is checking the updated BCS Rankings and NBA Power Rankings every Monday.
6- You’ve used the fax, scanner, printer, and copier today, but not for anything work related.
5- You read every interesting article posted to your twitter feed and re-tweet each one with a clever comment (OMG, tht is so tru, 4real).
4- You talk to your fantasy Football League more than your cubicle partner.
3- You know more than one way to beat the company internet filter.
2- You know where all the blind spots are on the office security cameras.
1- You make top ten lists of how bored you are at work while at work (yes, that would be me. But at least I get paid for it).
