What my boss doesn't know...
« on: November 11, 2009, 05:17:17 PM »
... is that every day I come to work wearing a jacket, my Nintendo DS is in one of the pockets.

What rebellious secrets do you guys keep from your bosses?

When I was in sales, I would ride to our client's parking lot and just sit in the work truck playing PSP. Finally got a use out of all those UMD movies I bought cheap too.

BTW! My work ethic isn't THAT bad, this is the result of being dicked over on my commission for half a year.

My boss used to leave at 5pm which left me open to a lot of videogame playing. I used to only play when I'd work night shift, one week I put in 30 hours of Fire Emblem on GBA at work. I ended up having to reset most of the time so it was about 5 hours of progress, I hated that game! But yeah, if a lot of you guys remember when I used to work night shift I'd be up all night in the chat room with you. I miss the good old days.  :sad:

Edit: Oh, and my boss didn't know I slept with 3 of the Mental Health Counselors.

I REALLY miss those days.

My boss doesn't know that I'm on here and the rest of the internet for most of the day. :SK:

Well...for the days that I don't have much work to do, anyway.

I wish that were the case where I work, unfortunately being called away from your desk is all too frequent and the computers can be a bit sluggish to tab between programs

I used to hide a gameboy sp some years ago at a touristy job I had. currently I work at game stop and at a lab, the game stop job I don't give a fuck about and just text all day while being friendly to people but avoid cleaning at all costs(other employees mess up the store and think im going to clean up the mess since I'm there 1 day a week, jokes on them) my school job I fudge my hours since it's qualitative not quantitative(I make stuff for bacteria to grow on and set up labs and make solutions and autoclave(sterilize) stuff, when it's done my boss doesnt care if I leave early)

When I was working at the local photogallery, we had high-speed internet. On Wednesdays (or, really, ANY day that my boss didn't come in) I would sign on to Netflix and watch movies and tv shows for HOURS.

Even though I didn't bring home much, it was the best job I ever had.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

I'm handing out flyers for this marketing company and I"m suppose to deliver 1600 for 4 hours. I just do about 1000 or when I reach my 4 hours of work. When I was back in the store about 3 months ago, I did my keychains there and played video games or check on SK.net when no customers were in the store.

N64 and Gamecube in our supply storage where my friend and I beat each other up with Golden Eye and Super Smash brothers. That and during our technology collaborations, we break out the DS's and play Tecmo Bowl Kickoff!

That and scanning berserk on our huge fuji xerox machines!  :carcus:

My boss doesn't know that I put my psp in my pocket and spend half the time I'm out "bringing carts up" is spent sitting on one of the cart rack things listening to music. Yeah, I'm rebellious huh? :badbone:
Sadly my work has no internet access computers, they just have access to Lowe's own network. :sad:

This reminds me of a fun story!

A few years ago, I spent the summer as a receptionist at my dad's work. I was parked in front of a computer for about 8 hours a day, so fiddling around on the internet was difficult to resist. :farnese: I felt really guilty about goofing off on the job, so I always cleared my history afterward; but one day, I discovered that a boy who worked the receptionist desk on my days off was spending his time working... uh. Something else. On Literotica, no less! I didn't feel quite so bad after that. :griffnotevil:

Nice   :ganishka:

That reminds me, at my old newspaper, when we were finished for the night, 4 of us would play Mario Kart on DS. Two of the guys didn't even have a DS before they saw me and a coworker playing, so they were convinced and bought one each.

Since I got an iPod Touch last October I've watched over twenty days on film, tv shows and anime at work :ganishka:

I've cleared my entire back log of old anime (I would have probably never had the time to watch monster otherwise) and am now finding it difficult to find new things to watch :sad:
Lost as in a dream I seek the shadow Of one who has Swirled away... Abandoning friends, Abandoning humanity.

Haha, I don't know how I missed this shit. I can totally relate. In my stop an shop days I would think the same thing. It was actually a pretty cool job. Your outside, fresh air, excercise and you get to listen to w/e you want and just daydream. Not so bad.
