The Official Bored At Work Thread
This here is the official thread for those who are browsing the STO forums while bored at work. Tell us about your job, tell us how boring it is, and tell us where you're browsing from.

I'm an office temp. I file paperwork. A well-trained monkey could do my job. I don't have an office, a cubicle, or even a desk. I just file paperwork.

I'm browsing the forums and posting from my Palm Pre.

Who else is bored at work right now?

Retired - used to be a bookkeeper (which by the way is the only word in the English language with three consecutive double letters --- see, I don't need a job to be bored at :p )

I am in IT as well... sitting here at my desk, bored, and wanting to be playing's one of those slow days where the ones that break their PC's have the day no tickets coming in.
maybe i'll inventory the CAT5 Cables and go have a beer.

Good thread.

I work at a small business who, for the last 6 months has seen its business decline more then 50%. Somehow we're still solvent. Now, this sounds like a great job having weathered a pseudo-recession. However, my boss is fat and lazy, his father, the owner who besides being a world-class nepotic is also a psychotic ******* who demands that his 11 employees work at least 80 hours a week. I have enough work to last me about 30. So I spend more then half my week at my desk . . . waiting. OH GOD THE WAITING!!!!

That doesnt sound too far from my job at the moment. In a vein attempt to make myself useful earlier I put up a shelf for the microwave in the kitchen... it's only been there for like 20 years and no one has bothered doing it.

Now I've done that everyone seems to think I'm going to bring about somekind of revolution to the business when in actuallity I'm sat here reading these forums watching the clock go backwards....

I contemplated smashing my brains in earlier but I thought no... for in just 2 hours I get to home and expereince the joys of a laggy system after a lengthy queue system.

I apologise, I'm just not in a good mood today. I really do love STO, just not when it's broke, and not when I'm stuck at this place :/

haha, that's good....
there used to be a website kicking around back like 5 or 6 years ago called or something to those lines. Almost the same idea, but it was more support techs experiences with EU's on the phone.
ahhh the good old days I tell ya.

but we all got a dude that can't spell or fill in trouble tickets correctly. I got a guy here that can put a entire sentence into a single letter, or a random groups of letters. I played wow with the guy there for over a year and it's interesting trying to decode what he is trying to say.
