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....

It's Going to be a Chilly Winter!

What's the weather going to be like this winter? Well if you're hoping for mild and warm, you may be disappointed in the weather outlook from Al Dutcher, State Climatologist with UNL. Farmers, businessmen and others interested in what we'll see this winter came to Dutcher's presentation at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce on Thursday. 
Al started out his presentation by reviewing how the weather has been so far this fall and winter, and compared it to last year. This year’s La Nina event is much stronger than last year and expected to last longer.
Many people have commented on the recent stretch of dry weather we've been seeing in our region of Nebraska as of late, but Dutcher explained we received almost all of our fall precipitation during the month of October. 
Al said the La Nina pattern will keep dry conditions south of Nebraska, which will continue to expand the  drought in those areas. 
Dutcher says when looking at the La Nina event that we are currently experie…
