Some philosophers argue that boredom is a result of disliking or having no interested in what one is doing at any given moment. To fight off this dislike or disenterest, we revert to any trivial task that will occupy our mind or help is forgot about the moment at hand. Even daydreaming is a form of fighting off boredom.
This person is either a germophobe worse than Howie Mandel, or feels the need to work in what looks like the U.S.S Enterprise. Bones and Scotty unavailable for comment. All's I know is that I would fight off a lion with nothing but one of those chomping dinosaur heads on a stick if it meant I didn't have to work at this place.

I'm not sure if this person is bored, or if this is a creative version of a brown paper bag over the face. Maybe they're just really ugly. Maybe I'll resort to this, since Post-It notes are cheaper than brown paper bags...

Halfway through the week, and I'm exhausted. I've come to the conclusion that no matter how much sleep you get, if you have to wake up before 8, you will invariably be exhausted. You could go to bed at 8 the night before, wake up at 7 after 11 hours of sleep, and still feel like a train hit you. And then an airplane crashed into the train.
So, in honor of this revelation, here is a smashed alarm clock. If you have never done this, you have not lived. It is even more gratifying than telling off your boss. So send in pictures of your smashed alarm clock!

The philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer believed that existence did not hold any positive value due to the realism of boredom. For if existence were fulfilling, he stated, then we would never be bored. Merely to be alive and in existence would be enough to make one happy and satisfied.
That's all fine and good, but I think this guy's brain melted and he started seeing little green men running around his cubicle. The only way to stop them was by making this catapult constructed from offfice supplies.

First off, I'd like to recognize my Alma Mater, Purdue University. Classes started today, ringing in the new school year and lots and lots of future boredome in class, between class, during homework sessions, and while (supposedly) studying. Happy Year 2008-2009 to Purdue!
As for the rest of you school and work bores, it's another Monday. How fun. A whole week to contemplate how awful your daily life is. In other news, this man has taken 3rd grade paper plane construction to a new level. And by new level, I mean he's completely lost it.

I think I saw the guy that built this when I was in San Diego. He was on a street corner looking through a garbage can. He then proceded to point at various office buildings and shaking his head in horror saying there was nothing but evil inside.
Fight it, people. If you find yourselves building a small engine out of cardboard and paper clips, it's already too late.

It is very rain in Florida, and I haven't even seen the sun in 3 days. But that isn't going to stop me from helping those that suffer from work boredom.
This is what happens when your boss doesn't give you enough work. Your office equipment slowly grows weeds, much like your brain from lack of activity.

I think God puts something in the air on Mondays that just makes everyone miserable. It has to be similar to the stuff he puts in the air on Sundays that makes everyone tired.

It's Friday, and you know what that means? It means tomorrow you get a very small break that won't seem like 2 whole days at all before going back and doing your work week all over again! Yay!
But, try to enjoy your weekend anyway. By smashing your computer to bits.

Have you been so bored at work that you wanted to do something crazy, just to get the blood flowing and a little bit of energy going through the office? Like let out a primal scream and jump through a window or throw your computer across to the other cublicle?
I say do it today. Just let it all out, tiger.

Greetings from LA! This is my last short vacation before I return to misery. Luckily I get to come here and remind myself of what I'll be going back to. Nothing like forbidding yourself to truly get away on your vacation.
Anyway, on to this beauty. After finishing this masterpiece, the employee drank a bottle of absynthe and cut off his ear.

I am about to jump on a plane for Los Angeles, so I will be eating airline peanuts and small cups of Sprite after waiting at the terminal for at least an hour. Good thing I brought my Gameboy (yeah, that's right I'm old school) so I can play Mortal Kombat while I'm bored on the plane!
Don't worry, I'll be back tomorrow. Until then, do whatever it takes to survive your work day. Yeah, and I mean whatever...

I apologize for the absence of posts recently. My county was hit with a tornado that left me without power for 2 days and then I had to drive to Florida to get back to school. But fret not! I have returned. And I have electricity.
Here is a suggestion for you who are bored at work. In fact, it's brilliant. Basically, you can do what your bosses do all the time. Feel and act important even though you're actually a schmuck.

Well, playtime is over, and I must catch a plane back to reality. Although saying that I'm going "back to work" is such a relative term, as this comic explains.
I think my favorite part is that the boss is using a wooden plank with a rusty nail in it to goad his employees. So true...

Greetings from San Diego! My vacation from work boredom has been fun, but I have not forgotten about those who are still at work and ready to bash their heads through their office/cubicle wall. Cubicle walls are softer though, I've noticed. Anyway, try to make this Monday as super-fun as possible! And by that I mean try to curb that sensation that always crawls up that makes you want to tell your boss that you're quitting forever and putting a hex on his offspring.

Happy August! And also a Happy Friday! Sorry to those of you that work on weekends. Maybe a new job is in order, no? For those of you that have weekend jobs, don't be afraid to send in pics on the weekends. I can make special weekend posts, and do you know why? Because I care. That's right, Josh cares for the broken...aka the weekend workers. Because you guys have got to be extra bored at work knowing everyone else is lounging around or at the beach
