A little bored at work wisdom: if you convince the people around you to commit to laziness, then your collective effort will result in everyone doing less work and staying more sane. Don't thank me, I'm just the vessel for such wisdom.

Heed this advice from the boss. The only way for your performance to be acceptable is for you to sacrifice your life for your job. But, since it's hard enough to just get up on time for work, you can settle for being a sub-par worker and just be bored at work.

This is the kind of genius that only comes around once in a great while. Don't want to do work? Tie your boss's brain in a pretzel with a question he can't answer because he's probably not as smart as you. Then you don't actually have to do work, and you can come goof off at imboredatwork.org! Yeah, I just plugged my own site.

It's Monday so expect a little extra crap thrown your way. You may not be so bored today, or as my Dutch friends would say, verveelde, but you will want to quit by the end of the day. But hold on to the hope of a brighter tomorrow...it won't come but at least you know that others are just as miserable at work.

This is a common problem. Being bored at work leads to dozing off at work. Then, when you snap out of your dream about entering Hell, you wake up and realize that you're still in metaphorical Hell, aka work.

It has come to my attention that this website is the first website that appears in Google when you search for "verveelde." After some investigation, I found that "verveelde" means "bored" in Dutch. So to all my friends in the Netherlands who are bored at work, have a great Friday and party with wooden shoes on all weekend!
P.S. How do you say I'm bored at work in Dutch? Google translator says it's "Ik ben verveeld op het werk" but I don't know if I trust it.

Now this is true bored at work honesty. The computers are down, so you have to fight boredom by actually dealing out a solitaire game. People don't even do that anymore. Brings a tear to my eye, going the extra mile to not do real work.

Now here is a serious problem. If you can't fall asleep or at least doze off during work meetings, then they have finally won. If you become so used to being bored at work that you don't even notice how horrid and mind numbing the crappiness of work is...well, it may be too late for you. But you must fight anyway! Come to this site and piss away your time doing something more fun than curling into fetal position under your desk.

I love a little work honesty. If these signs were up in your office, then at least you would know what to expect. You wouldn't have any illusions of getting satisfaction from your job...or even a raise. I would especially like a post-it note system like the last sign. That way I can know what crappy stuff has happened while I was gone.
Also, it's election day so go out and vote! It's one of our priveleges as Americans.

At first one might think that this idea would severely decrease the amount of work done at the office. I disagree. I think that the sharp decrease in work boredom would increase work productivity. Now, whether or not the work that is churned out is pure crap is another story.
