I use the 'puter as the texans call it.

If you don't have one I'd just day dream about boobs
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Oh yeah, if I've got a shorter period of time off, like half a period or something, I'll sit with my giant Sudoku book and have at a few puzzles. ;-D

Zito, you in the fitting room?

When I was back there I would always chill with people. Basically, they would go back there to get a "rolling rack," but we'd just talk and if a manager came in they would start folding the clothes like they were helping.

This was how I flirted with the cute girls at the store.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

You got it.

I work with mostly older people or managers so no one really hangs out in the fitting room. I need something that I can do without being easily seen.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

During college one of my jobs had A LOT of down time, but there was no TV, no computer, and the radio had to stay on either the oldies or the soft rock station, so I didn't mess with that much. I filled my time with reading. A ton of reading. I'd read the newspaper cover to cover in the morning, then spend all of my spare time during the day reading books...I think I read more in the just over two years that I worked there than I have in the rest of my life combined.

Ask for more work or more challenging work. ;-D

Wow, that is ambitious.... :-o

Judging by your question, it seems like you need a new job. So the next time your boss comes in and catches you red-handed, tell him that you quit, and then leave. If you seriously leave, then thats cool. The really funny thing is to say your quitting, then walk around the corner and come back and say Gotcha! and go back to work...

That might be a bit risky though.

That's the answer I was waiting for. ;-D As a reward your job will not be outsourced to India.
More people should have that attitude. Instead most try to find a way to avoid work while on the clock. It's what's wrong with America.

When I'm bored at work I'll go out and smoke a quick butt. Then when I come back in if there is still no action I'll start cleaning something even though I pay people to do that. There's always something to be do.
