Heres one for you Rhea! :laughing2

*Eight signs you have nothing to do at work*

2.You discover that staring at your cubicle wall long
enough produces images of Elvis.

3.You've figured out a way to get Gilligan off the

4.You decide to see how many Mountain Dews you can
drink before the inevitable explosion occurs.

5.People come into your office only to borrow pencils
from your ceiling.

6.No longer content with merely photocopying your butt,
you now scan and enhance it with Photoshop.

7.You now require only a single can of cola to belch
the names of all seven Dwarfs.

8.The 4th Division of Paperclips has overrun the
Pushpin Infantry, and General White-Out has called for

Hmmm... I have enough work to do to keep me busy for the next month straight... yet I am a master at avoiding it. I can ignore piles of paperwork and surf the internet for hours on end and still make it look like I am actually working. So I don't know if I'm actually bored or if I have acquired the talent to merely appear bored. (And I wonder why the accounting never gets done. )

"They insisted that all employees get to work by 8:45
every morning. Couldn't work under those conditions."

JOB RESPONSIBILITIES: "While I am open to the initial
nature of an assignment, I am decidedly disposed that
it be so oriented as to at least partially incorporate
the experience enjoyed heretofore and that it be
configured so as to ultimately lead to the application
of more rarefied facets of financial management as the
major sphere of responsibility."

"I was proud to win the Gregg Typting Award."

"My goal is to be a meteorologist. Since I have no
training in meteorology, I suppose I should try stock
