The Top Ten Ways We Slack Off at Work

We'll as usual another busy day on the Morning Show...time to take it easy...




According to a new survey, the average person spends 50 minutes a day slacking off at work.  42% of people said they do it because their job is too easy, and 34% said they just get bored.


 This week was one of the biggest slack-off times of the year, because everyone's still easing back into work after the holidays.  According to the survey, here are the ten most common ways we slack off . . .


 1.  Browsing the Internet.


 2.  Checking personal emails.


 3.  Texting.


 4.  Browsing social media.


 5.  Leaving your desk to just walk around for a while.


 6.  Online shopping.


 7.  Dealing with errands, like paying bills online.


 8.  Eating lunch at your desk.  (???)  Isn't that kind of the OPPOSITE of slacking off?


 9.  Daydreaming while you just stare blankly at your computer screen.


 10.  Planned toilet breaks.  Other ways we slack off include doodling in meetings . . . hanging out in the office kitchen, or at the water cooler . . . and pretending to work when you're actually playing an online game.

I had no idea there were so many choices....

Raising Children

Now this is a topic, I don't think there is a right way, or a wrong way. If you have just one child to raise or multiples, you would raise them somewhat differently. If the ages are spread a part, you again may raise them differently. Certainly if one child has special needs, you would raise them differently.
Then again, instilling basic fundamental steps is key.

Take the newly crowned Masters champion, Patrick Reed. He had his struggles growing up, like any child. Now let's fast-forward to his career as a professional golfer. Somewhere along the way he met his wife, who Mom & Dad dis not approve of. Reed playing the grandest golf tournament of all in his home state of Georgia had his wife by his side. His parents, no where to be seen. You see he has barred them from any tournament he plays.

This must be his way of "getting back" to the two who created him, brought him into this world. They raised him. Something went terribly wrong along the way.

Truth is, someda…

Are you a fubber?

Picked up on a new word today, FUBBER. Are you a fubber? What is fubber? Can I buy it at Wal-Mart, or Casey's? Is it available on Amazon? The answer to all those questions is hopefully, NO>

A fubber is a person. I'm sure you know one, are married to one, or work with one, or both. To be a FUBBER you are active scanning your cellphone, while in a conversation. As a person talks to you, you scroll through your messages or Facebook.

This denies the attention the person you're with deserves. It's rude, careless, and obnoxious.

Conclusion, don't be a FUBBER.  If someone is being a fubber to you, call them out on it. If what you're saying is important, grab the phone and keep it, until the conversation has concluded.

There's your tip of the day.
