These are the concrete things I did at my “job” on Thursday and Friday:
Thursday. No work done of note. Total actual work time: 0 minutes.
Friday. Had a ‘meeting’ at 11 where my boss’s boss tried to reassure our group that everything’s ok. He did a good job (of speaking in reassuring ways) even though nobody believed him, because he’s a big phony. But very charismatic!
Later: One guy asked me for four numbers that we had created for him a while ago, but he lost the paper with the numbers on it when everyone moved desks. I found and reprinted the spreadsheet with the four numbers on them, and gave him the piece of paper. This was some of the most substantial work I have done since starting this job. Total work time: 1 minute.
The rest of my work day is primarily spent reading news – mostly, business news – on the internet.
Oh: you really don’t want to know where I work.
By the way, if I show up ‘late’ or leave ‘early’ from this ‘job’, my boss gives me a look and makes snide comments. Because I’m so crucial, you see.
