Just for Laughs : If you find dangerously bored

Hi all,

Just want to share with you an old joke:

If you find dangerously boring in the office,Then here are some tips to overcome boredom:

1. Form a detective agency to find out who is quitting next.

2. Make blank calls to your Boss.

3. Send mails from lotus notes(outlook) to your internet mail (and immediately get to the internet and see who reaches first, you or your mail?) and read them there, and note down the time they take to reach there. Then do vice versa............. !!

4. Rearrange the furniture, i.e. flick someone else's chair just to irritate him/her.

5. Count your fingers (and toes if you still get bored).

6. Watch other people changing their facial ex-pressions while working and try changing your ex-pressions also.

7. Try to stretch status meetings as longer as possible, just by asking silly doubts.

8. Make faces at strangers in office.

9. Have a two hour lunch; it's a big social occasion.

10. Learn to whistle.

11. Revise last week's newspaper.

12. Hold "How fast my computer boots" competitions.

13. Practice aiming the coffee cup into the dustbin.

14. Compile "How to waste your day"

15. Pick up phone and dial non-existing nos.

16. Have work breaks in between tea.

17. Count maximum no of applications your computer can open at time.

18. For Win NT/95 users....Move things to Recycle bin and restore them..Then repeat this process.

19. Look at someone & try to imagine how(s) he might have looked when(s) he was 5 years old.

20. Read jokes and send jokes.

21. Make full use of the comfortable chair and table provided and take a nap.

    I remember the good old days on a certain project where we had absolutely nothing to do.

    To pass the time, we set up a little experiment:

    We made 2 colonies of mealworms (fish/spiderfood).

    1 colony only got apples to eat, the other colony only got eraser (yes, from a pencil).

    And then we waited and waited to see which colony grew faster.

    Of course this al took place in the office.

    No animals were hurt/killed during this experiment.

    PS. we did not find a significant difference in growth between colonies. Further experiments are necessary, but fortunately I have a lot to do now 😊

      Second perhaps only to "Moor Huhn Jagd", the contributions of youtube to the economy are also dangerously "verdekte" P&L positions to accrue for.

      One which I have not seen widely distributed in SAP circles, but familiar to many accountants, is [the exploding whale|]. (safe for the office, if your office has not filtered youtube... 😊
