Bored at Work? Here are some tips to keep yourself entertained!


  1. Page yourself over the intercom. (Don’t disguise your voice.)
  2. Find out where your boss shops and buy exactly the same outfits. Always wear them one day after your boss does. (This is especially effective if your boss is a different gender than you are.)
  3. Put mosquito netting around your cubicle. Play a tape of jungle sounds all day.
  4. Put a chair facing a printer, sit there all day and tell people you’re waiting for your document.
  5. Arrive at a meeting late, say you’re sorry, but you didn’t have time for lunch, and you’re going to be nibbling during the meeting. During the meeting eat 5 entire raw potatoes.
  6. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask him or her if they want fries with that.
  7. Send email to yourself engaging yourself in an intelligent debate about the direction of one of your company’s products. Forward the mail to a co-worker and ask her to settle the disagreement.
  8. Make up nicknames for all your coworkers and refer to them only by these names. “That’s a good point, Sparky”. “No I’m sorry I’m going to have to disagree with you there, Sport.”
  9. “Hi-lite” your shoes. Tell people that you haven’t lost your shoes since you did this.
  10. Develop an unnatural fear of staplers.
