    Busy work day vs. slow work day

    Today is sucking right now. It's completely dead and time is crawling. When I was younger, I loved having the occassional slow day. As I get older, I'd rather just stay busy, even if it means a frantic day. I get lazy and tend to overlook stuff I normally wouldn't if my mind's not engaged.

    I don't take work stress home with me very often, if at all. Maybe if I got stressed easily, I might change my mind. I dunno. Just me?

    Nope. Busy days are better. Makes the day go by quicker. I try to take a late lunch 130-230 so that way when I get back i only have a few hours left and can stay focused for that long.

    I'm with you. Busy days are much better. Except days like today. I am so busy and have so much to do, it's a little overwhelming. My gf and I work at the same place, so it's hard not to take work home either.

    Busy days go by much faster. Seems like 2 minutes ago, I was walking in the door at 6:30.

    Glad I have tomorrow off!

    It's been slow around here lately and time goes really slow. I know what you mean -at first I loves not having anything to do but lately I'd rather be busy then have hours to sit around.

    I worked with my then GF, now wife, for awhile in college, but it was only for a summer. If I had to interact with her all throughout the day, it would be rough. We carpool right now which is perfect, because we can get any of that petty workplace crap talked out during the drive home.

    We work in a building of about 500 people and I rarely see her during the day. We used to work in the same department, her desk was literally 15 feet from mine. THAT was waaaay to much.

    Carpooling used to be nice, but now it's a pain. We are both salary, and even though we have the same base schedule, we never get off near the same time. So I just make her drive herself now.

    Re: Busy work day vs. slow work day

    If someone doubled your current salary to sit at a desk and do nothing (no sleep, no tv, no books, no computer, no writing, no interaction with anyone) would you take it? If yes, for how long could you honestly put up with it?

    I'd go crazy after one day.

    I'd do it until I ran out of cell phone games, which would be until the end of time.

    I'd rather be busy time goes faster. Then I can get off work and do what I want.

    i don't know. that's a lot of money but a lot of wasted time. I'd do it for a week or so and then get bored. I'm at the point now where'd I'd take less money to be happy going to work.

    Do you mean for 40 hours a week?

    That would be pretty rough.

    No phones or games of any kind either. Also, no working out. Just sit at a desk with blank walls all day.
    Sorry, it's hard to hit all of the loopholes.
