Sharpening a pencil by the chalkboard was the childhood equivalent of taking a smoke break.

Now that we’re older there are so many other things that we use to procrastinate. I find that daydreaming about being somewhere else is the least taxing on the body. Although, a lap around the office wouldn’t hurt, you might run into nosey Linda who is always trying to make you look bad in front of the boss. You won’t want to have to slap a hoe today, It’s Friyay!!
A lot of people these days prefer to take a walk around the block on their break. I find this to be uncomfortable. It’s usually too hot or too cold. You don’t want to be one of those people who come back into the office smelling like armpit juice, staining one of the 3 good work shirts that you have. You would have a nicer wardrobe if they paid you better. The execs get their bonuses and they don’t even do anything. Most of them couldn’t do half of what you do, but they have brand new shirts everyday. I haven’t seen Greg once wear the same shirt twice in a month let alone a week. (Note to self, find out how to harness the essence of Greg and take his job) Fuck Gregory!
There’s always the good ole trusty water cooler. You can easily burn 5 minutes off of your 8 hour sentence by going this route. We actually have one of these at work, where people actually stand around and actually talk about stupid water cooler stuff. I’ve learned about the distant lands of the Gypsies, the intricate flavors of candy from Mexico and all the goings on in GOT’s final season.
Suffice it to say we all have our favorite ways to procrastinate when we should be working. Be it at home or at work.
Whats your favorite drug of choice when it’s time to take a break from it all, when life is just a little bit too real?
