The Ultimate Collection Of Things To Do At Work When You’re Bored

Work is boring. Fact! Sitting at a desk in a stale office for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, 46 weeks a year, can make you go crazy. You need to kick back and do something fun and creative when the boss isn’t looking or when he’s in the toilets having sex with his secretary.

I have compiled a visual resource of all of the awesome things you could do at work when you are bored and don’t want to do any more work, like on a Friday afternoon or Monday at around 2pm.

1. Cover your work-mate’s car in post-it notes

Preferably on the person you hate the most in the office, like the wanker who always eats your lunch that is in the fridge with your name on it.

2. Pimp up your Facebook page

Get creative and spend like 2 hours fucking about with your FB background. Here are some ideas for you…

3. Give your work colleagues a rendition of “When I’m Cleaning Windows” with an office banjo!

If you’re not allowed to listen to the radio or play music in work, then why not build yourself a little banjo and play it when the boss isn’t around! All you need is some clips, paper plates, cardboard and some elastic bands.

4. Create a new co-worker

You’ve been asking your boss for months to employ an assistant to help you out, but he’s never done anything about it. So why not create your own little side-kick.
