    We had a slow day and our office manager wanted to go out and see how we install systems, etc... basically what I do.

    Well since she wanted to go out, I had to stay in the office and answer the phones, do invoices, blah blah.

    It's only been two hours and I'm already bored of sitting here... so now I'm whoring up the internet.

    How the hell do you do it day in and day out?

    I have tons of paperwork to do in the morning. It takes me a good 3-4 hours to pull, pack and ship all of the orders, then do all the cross checks. Then I sit around and bullshit for most of the day in my office, watch TV, play internet games and tell people what to do.

    I found a pepsi in the fridge, so I started munching on my chips I had yesterday.

    Now I'm having another cigarette. It's a bad thing when you can smoke in your office, cause I'll go through this pack by noon.

    I opened it in my car on the way to work, and I've already gone through nine cigs in 3 hours. :(

    I mean damn, we have a 100+ phone system going in today and it's supposed to be "all the tech's responsibility" yet Kat gets to go and help install it.. where as I don't even know where the building is.

    I've got 6 cigs left... it's not necessarily a good thing.

    Everyone here smokes, except Sharon and my mom.

    We work jobs that don't require sitting for long periods of time doing nothing. I spend all of my time (that isn't used conrtibuting to the delinquency^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H community here) hacking (the Linux definition, not the stupid media def).

    Simple.

    30 minute spurts of fast and furious work.

    Then 45 minutes on the internet.

    Repeat for 8 hours.
