    Bored at work - help!

    I am at work this week - I have coped the last 2 days but I have now reached an all time boredom high.

    I have read my usual web sites, bored of playing on my i-phone, cant play any computer games (I can get on the Internet but it is work so no games)...

    Any ideas that will get me through the next few hours?

    Time will go faster if you actually do some work.

    Also, take a long lunchbreak helps

    hahahahah that was a good one... oh, hold on were you being serious?

    Hmmm I hadn't considered doing any work.... I always consider the days between Xmas and new year dead days. I am an I.T. manager and we always have a change freeze on during this time, so its either fix stuff thats broke (hardly anyone here so not many calls coming in) or paperwork and paperwork can kiss my fat ass

    But cheers for the suggestion.

    Old school solution but try scrunching waste paper (preferably that paperwork) in balls and throwing them from across the room into a bin. Its surprisingly fun and I've literally wasted hours doing it before.

    Hahaha, if you're alloud to have any visitor's while you're "working" I would suggest bringing a friend or possibly your gf to work with you to keep you entertained, the office roleplay with your girl is always hot dude

    Ill give the paper tossing game a go - sounds like it could be fun

    As for bringing the Missus down - I am married with kids so she has the kids, plus I don't get sex at home so no way she is popping down to the office for some

    Also I share my office with the other I.T. dudes and there is one other guy in - he might not be too keen on me "getting it on" in front of him, and the office has 2 large glass walls that looks out onto a big open plan office which is full of people. I do like the idea though - mostly because it involved me having sex lol.

    I got my laptop with me that has wow on it (which is what I will be doing at lunchtime in the break area), but unfortunately my boss is working this week and although I can get away with doing very little and scouring the internet for amusement I couldn't get away with playing games.

    How about some web browser games? Or if you have looked at your "usual web sites" check out some new ones?

    I am up for some web browser games or if you could recommend some new websites - I tend to stick with MMO Champ, a few spurs and football sites and thats about it.....

    So any funny websites or funny iphone apps that dont cost would be much appreciated

    Get stumbleupon and watch your life dissapear. Also, Cracked, todays big thing, Cyanide and happiness, hyperbole and a half (personal favourite)...

    Here's my star suggestion though. Minecraft can be played in browser. Nuff said.

    Hyperbole and a half - Seven games you can play with a brick.

    Story of my life. Only I'm a kitchen porter, so it's harder for me to access a computer.
    But I usually combat boredom with the help of my iPod, it's quite relaxing to be able to listen to your own music rather than the usual tripe on the radio.

    xckd.com is a bunch of funny comics. I also like cracked.com and I always make sure to read the newspaper and check up on news on the Yahoo.com homepage. Another good website is howstuffworks.com or mentalfloss.com. I work at the front desk of a hotel and get bored easily too! After I get the lobby wiped down, vacumn, and do any paperwork that's really the extent of my job which takes maybe 2 hours if I stretch it out out of an 8 hour shift. I usually farm leather on my laptop. I work overnights and only ever see my boss maybe 3 hours a week! It's so nice

    Got a good laugh out of that, "That is quite clearly a dog with a blanket on it..."
    Stumble is great eh. I'm off now, Happy New years mate.

    Thats... I don't even have a word to explain how wierd that is.
    Certainly a good laugh though, it's clearly a dog with a blanket on it.
