Office Worker Thoughts.

I'm stealing this from Buzzfeed. I really couldn't come up with a better list myself. And I want to put it out there that I did not compile this list or anything and am taking no credit whatsoever, just sharing an awesome thing.

48. I wonder what’s going on in the supply closet.
49. JACKPOT, they got new highlighters!
50. ORANGE HIGHLIGHTER?! That’s just crazy. Crazy highlighter alert.
51. Is it wrong to steal one of these and take it home? You know, just in case I need to highlight something?
52. What would happen if they caught me?
53. You know what, I deserve this highlighter. I work my ass off for this company.
54. Also, if they catch me I guess I could just say it was an accident.
55. How am I still hungry? I just ate lunch.
56. Ahhhhhh, more emails.
57. Is this even humanly possible?
58. IS IT ONLY 1:30?!
59. I’m going to die in this office. I might as well just sleep here, then I wouldn’t have to pay rent.
60. I wonder what’s happening on Facebook?
61. * looks over shoulder for boss * FACEBOOK TIME.
62. Better open an excel sheet in case anyone important walks by.
63. Everyone on Facebook is THE WORST!
64. Where do people even find this stuff to post?
65. Oh no, my co-worker requested to be my friend.
66. WHAT DO I DO?!
67. They know we’re not actually friends right?
68. If I deny their request, will they be able to tell?
69. Oh shit, my boss is coming.
70. * furiously tries to close window with Facebook just as computer decides to stop working *
72. Phew it closed, just made it. Better open my emails.
73. 157 emails?! When will I ever have time to answer these?
74. I feel like there was something I was going to buy on Amazon earlier, what was it?

75. Maybe I”ll just look up flights to Vegas for my next vacation.
76. How many vacation days do I actually have left?
77. Not enough.
78. I need a raise, or a promotion.
79. I work really hard.

81. I wonder if we’re getting bonuses this year?
82. Crap, I need to pee again.
83. I need to stop drinking so many liquids.
84. If I didn’t have to pee so often then maybe I would have time to answer all these damn emails.
85. Have they invented a robot that pees for you yet? I mean it’s 2014, there should be a robot that does that by now.
86. I wonder if they’d let me have an assistant, or at least an intern?
87. Oh my god, IT’S ALMOST TIME TO GO!!! * sings * Hallelujah, hallelujah!
88. Crap, I still have so much to do.
89. Where did my whole day go?!
90. This is why I need an assistant, I’m too busy.
91. I guess I’m going to have to stay late tonight.
92. HAHAHA, who am I kidding?
94. 119, 118, 117……. hmm it might be a bit much to count down the seconds.
95. Better start quietly preparing my bag so I can get the balls outta here.
96. Crap I don’t want to be the first one to leave, then everyone will think I’m a slacker.
97. What can I do to kill some time?
98. I know! I’ll do one last pass at my email so I look like I’m being productive.
99. 293 emails?!?!?!?!?!
100. Eh…. I’ll just deal with those tomorrow.
Good job Buzzfeed. You hit the nail on the head.
