Things To Do When Bored At Work

08 February 2009
I am feeling so blue this morning. It's Sunday, and I'm in the office, already finish my work, but I need to stay in the office until 1pm, and that can only be considered as a 'half day'.

Anyway, I manage to find out people can do lots of stupid things while they are bored.

You may want to try these out :

Things to do when bored at work :

Do some work out with simple stretches.
Hand rotate, leg stretching is easy and can make you feel fresh. You can climb up and down the stairs but usually you don't want to sweat, do you?

Leave anonymous messages for people silently.
You can draw, scribble, graffiti... Just be creative. But don't leave your name. See how they react to the message.

Glue everything.
Pick up random objects and super glue them together to create abstract art. Display it on your desk or present it as a gift to someone in the office.

Have an imaginary friend and keep talking to him/her aloud in the office.
This helps you to improve your talking skill.

Google your boss.
Try and Google the names of people you know and see if you find anything interesting/funny. Then, walk up to those people and talk to them about the funny things you found out about them.

Army men.
Arrange a bunch of little army men on your desk. Aim them all at one of your coworkers. Insist that it's "purely a defensive measure."

Come up with a plan of world domination.
Then shoot down your own plans of world domination.

Pet blog.
Create a blog for your pet. Maybe for your pet fish.

Clean your keyboard.
Preferably with water. Clean key by key until it 'bling-bling'. There's at least 104 keys to go. You won't feel bored now. Oh, don't forget the mouse.

Groan out loud in the toilet.
Best to do it when there's other people in the toilet.

Call to someone you barely know him/her and tell he/she "Just call to say I can't talk right now."

While riding in a lift, gasp dramatically every time the door opens.

While an office mate is out, move their chair into the lift.

Carry your keyboard over to your colleague and ask "You wanna trade with me?"

Unplug a coworker’s mouse/keyboard. Will they call tech support or check it themselves? Take bets if you want.

Learn to 'camwhore'. Guys can do better than girls, somehow.

If you have fake plants in the office, water them and see what people say.

Make your work a game.
You can make a game out of anything. Pretend that your coworkers are evil villains. Imagine that you are a CIA agent in disguise, or a spy from another company, and no one knows. Whatever appear in your mind.

Write a letter.
Valentine's Day is coming not? If you are liking someone, you should take time to write. E-mail is OK, but handwritten letter is the best.

Find flash games.

And last but not least, try visiting bored.com.
