Time Management

– You really should start work, it’s twelve minutes past nine.

“I’m very well aware of the time, thank you very much. It’s just that, well, I was going to finish my coffee before I start really working.”

– You won’t though, will you? The dregs of your coffee are already stone-cold. You’ve had it since eight thirty. When you finish it, or realise you don’t want to finish it because it’s too cold and ‘bitty’, you’ll just end up getting out of your seat and making tea.

“Why do you keep writing the time like that?”

– Hush. Are you going to start work now or not? It’s thirteen past nine, now.

“You’re weird.”

– I’m weird? You should check yourself before you wreck…

“Don’t say that. You sound like a complete penis when you say that. Besides, I’m just about to start work. Right………. nnnn…….”

– For crying out loud. At least open Word, or Excel, or perhaps the website you’re supposed to be working on. At least look busy.”

“I am busy. I’m planning.”

– Planning what? It certainly isn’t your day.

“Stuff. I’m planning stuff.”

– You’re planning on going to the toilet aren’t you? You’re planning on wasting another five minutes by walking downstairs and draining the so-called lizard. Pfftt. More like pinching the worm.

“I wasn’t.”

– But?

“But I am now.”

– I despair.

“I hate you.”

– I know.

    Yep that is me. I keep thinking back to Ben Elton’s sketch about “Stuff to do” – It’s amazing how many other things you can find to do that aren’t work related when you’re faced with the prospect of chasing down a shitload of errors in a bunch of code that worked yesterday but doesn’t this morning

    Your stories crack me up! Thanks

  4. Funny little time-wasting story Binks! Reminds me of someone I know who would take hourly cigarette breaks, then he decided to give up smoking but he felt he still deserved the breaks so he’d go stand in the corner at work for 5 mins doing nothing each hour.
