I Look At the Internet When I Should Be Working

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 111 People

    Not As Often As Before

    I used to be on here daily but it also depends on how busy we are. When we are slow no one cares as we are all doing it. As long as busy times are kept productive it's all good. Just in between today so a little bit of both.

    I Really Should Be Working

    I should be working right now.  Instead I'm on EP. . .again.  My job makes it too easy; alot of down time and free access to pretty much everything online.

    ???

    I don't know if this applies to me or not because I don't have a job, but, when I SHOULD be doing housework or bills or making phone calls, the Internet calls to me...I can't really stay away for too long...

    Everyday

    Everyday I look at the internet when I should be working. I’ve only one person to blame if I’m ever caught. I’m not that silly as I am the boss, and I work for myself, so keep your sticky beck out of it – I’ll do what I like and work when I like!!!
