Sadly, I have time to log at work.
May I rant for a moment bigbear.......( I will assume you say "yes"
My work doesn't give me enough work to do. I have worked here 2.5 years and in that time I have formally in writing
requested additional work twice and done so verbally several times as well.
Basically, I wanted to absorb the work of the 2nd caseworker who holds a similar position as me ( I asked for the work on occasions when the 2nd caseworker was leaving, I wasn't expecting them to can the guy for me ). The long and short of it, I was told no way, they will always have 2 caseworkers for this position. I work for the government so that should tell you something.
I am terribly efficient with MS Excel, the main platform I use to do my work, and thus I have even more
free time on my hands then when I first started this job because I have completely streamlined it, eliminating all sorts of duplicate work.
I am ethically obligated (due to my work regulations) not to make money at work on non-work related things. So I can't do an internet business or free lance work (not that I have many other talents, lol
). So I basically have plenty of time to post on ABC and to read things that interest me. For example, I read the entire Federalist Papers while at work.
On a positive note, I also have used the extra time to do volunteer work (no ethical issues there). For example, I update the Westmoreland County Right to Life's webpage, I work as a pseudo-trustee for my church with its Caring Pastor, and I even edited articles for ABC for awhile....speaking of which, I should let Venom know I am available again. Basically, I try to keep busy with positive things.
Idle hands are the devil's workshop.
Yes, they are finally low by anyone's standards, but they are working, I'm losing fat and I feel great.
Wow, what an incredibly kind thing to say, thanks Mike!
Believe me, when I finally post pictures, you will be happy I worked on my tan!
