A friend of mine IMed me the other night and wanted my advice on something obviously very important: how do you fake looking productive at work? To be perfectly honest, it’s been a while since I’ve had actual free time at work; my current job keeps me pretty fucking busy during work hours. But I can remember a time not too long ago when I relied on the wordiness and reblogging powers of the folks on Tumblr to get me through some mind-numbing on-the-clock hours. And I am well aware that having access to Tumblr at all was kind of a special fortune I enjoyed.
So my question for you today is: how do you fake productivity when you have to be on the clock but don’t have anything (interesting) to do?
