    You know your bored at work when...

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Corbyn, Feb 10, 2011.

    You randomly start singing songs you haven't heard in years while turning circles in your rolling desk chair! :D

    Or when you pop out of the pharmacy (in my case at least) into the vacant hall and yell spirit fingers! All while making strange cheerleading related gestures with your hands and said fingers...

    When you suddenly imagine yourself and all your coworkers as characters from a book/movie you read/watched recently, and relate every situation to that.

    LOL... That's a really good one Mallory...... I can just imagine my boss talking like.... "My preeeccciooouuusss..."

    haha!

    You know your bored at work when you talk to your co-workers and you have a running office story such as:

    So mean while, back at the ranch, Haus has fallen off his horse yet again into the prickly pear bush....

    I usually do something else. It depends on what I've seen/read recently that stuck with me.
