Seriously - I can't even conceive of such a thing. What did everybody do to pass the time?
and free cell and solitaire etc. I used to work really hard at improving my win % on free cell.
I get into a panic and start hitting the keys really hard - it's a bit noisy.
people worked to pass the time.
i'm straight onto freecell
i don't believe people actually worked more, heaven forbid, there was probably just more office romances/flirting or longer coffee breaks
Coffee breaks sound like a quaint idea. How's it work? Everyone has a coffee and then sits and chats whilst drinking it, instead of just going back to their desk and refreshing Facebook again?
so you can't have food or drinks at your desk - that results in 40 minute long coffee breaks downstairs with various cakes and biscuits from whoevers been abroad. Not very productive, but it means not drinking 10 thousand cups of tea a day like everyone else i know.
- often in the pub. the has probably saved a good few livers.
going blind and sterile now instead!
Walking around with bits of paper
I used to take three hour lunchbreaks to find an outfit for the weekend.
I'm having my nervous breakdown right now. Yay for me!
we just sat around talking and smoking. And there were typing pools, so ample opportunity for flirting.
