    I own a small business, if I pretend to work, I'd also have to pretend to eat.

    But since I own the place, I can goof off online as soon as all of my actual work is finished. I do a lot of data entry and customer service, but in this economy with sales down nearly 40%, I have a fair amount of time to be online.


    Can't WAIT for the repubs to be back in, cause when repubs are in EVERYONE has more money.

    Well if there are no clients or meetings to attend to, I will go on soda head or play ARMA 2.

    I take an occasional mini break just long enough to make a cup of coffee, it helps me wake back up... if I don't take any coffee breaks i just start zoning out.

    Well not EVERY second, but far more than I work. Fortunately there's a squeak whenever the office door leading to the garage is opened. My back may be facing the door, but when I hear that squeak, I put the phone down and pick up a tool, or rustle through some papers.

    I'm a civil engineer, It's pretty difficult to pretend to draw or pretend to inspect a building, or pretend to write out a maintenance inspection paper.

    pshh, i think its pretty easy to pretend to inspect a building, especially when there is little work to go around... i work in architecture and i could be very very quick at my job. instead, i spend 75% of my time doing things a slow way and pretending to work...

    Not entirely true. I "deduct" time spent on SH and anything that isn't purely work. I'm used to hourly billing (attorney) and consultant (programmer) so what I call work is exactly that.

    I'm always working until it's time to take a break. I don't pretend to work. If I did I have no right to be there and no right to take the money.

    I can't really do that at my job. At my old office job, there was no pretending involved. If there was no work to do I would clean something or waste time on the computer until someone called in an order or asked me to do something for them. It was a really lax place.

    I am an ICU RN, I'm lucky if I get to pee AND eat a 15 min lunch in one 12 hour shift! I don't even leave the unit unless it is to take a patient to a procedure, from 6:30am til 7:30pm. Sometimes I wish I had 5 mins to "pretend"!

    I am not paid by the hour I have 'a salary'. The quality of the work I produce is more important than the quantity- as long as I get it all done in the end. Also, I need good performance reviews and references for future endeavors. I am an instructor working somewhere in academia- I can't specify my exact occupation.

    There should be a middle ground option though. I'm a data analyst, which is well-paying but mind numbing. I find that I can focus better and work more efficiently if every two hours or so I take a few minutes to walk around the office, check news sites, make snarky comments on SodaHead, etc.

    The "coffee break" came about because industrial engineers discovered if workers had a break every 45 minutes the increase in work efficiency more than covered the break-time. This was at a time when 12 hour days were the norm. Smokers are actually more efficient because their smoke breaks work the same way.

    I am currently using Internet and even communities for professional purposes and administrative tasks, and spend much time with phone calls and e-mails - sounds like fun and implies quite a lot of extra hours and also much volunteering in my free time, as work days are too short.

    A lot of my work is done outside and I get paid by the job not by the hour....don't have time to pretend. In my profession pretending doesn't put food on the table or pay the bills.

    i dont have time to be bored. sometimes i wish i did. i work in sterile processing in sugery and we clean trays for them sometimes it lets up but most of the time were busy. whenits slow we are allowed to sit and take a breather . our boss is cool and doesnt care. our job is to be available when the case carts come down . we dont have to pretend.
