    What can I do to make myself look busy? I worked too hard yesterday and got too much done so I don't have much to do today, and the boss is here.

    I suppose I could go reboot a server or something and kick off a rash of problem calls.

    get up on a ladder and pretend to count paint tins in the overhead bays, no one will bother you then, I guarentee it.

    I usually start frantically browsing through my diary and typing things in. It looks great. Like I'm REALLY concerned about all those customers I need to phone back

    LMAO - yeah, I'm furiously typing on here trying to look deep in thought I actually just got back from the slab conditioning office, I was hoping the call would take like half the day but unfortunately I figured it out in fifteen minutes.

    @Mulder - I'd count paint cans if I had any. I suppose I could go inventory and rearrange the storage trailer again.

    Speaking of work,
    after being off for almost a month, my new team leader was supposed to ring me back on monday and still hasn't done so.

    She's rubbish, that's what I say

    I dunno about you but I find that posting on the forum and messing about with animated gifs makes me look incredibly busy.. So much so that I'm sure my colleagues think I must have been working on something absolutely amazing for the past 4 years...

    I would just push lots of buttons like homer style

    You could subcontract the work, so you don't have to do it

    or go automated.
