Default Excuses.

Ken mentioned in a post that he posts on MO while at work for therapy reasons so he doesn't have to strangle cats. I was thinking that that was a pretty good excuse and was wondering what other excuses MOrons can come up with for spending work time at MO.

I like to tell people that I have time to fill while my program developments compile. But that's pretty mundane and not as compelling as the "strangled cat gambit".

Any other good excuses? Ones that the boss would buy?

Post on forum during work? I don't find the time. I herd cats for a living.

I work from home and that means very little socialization. I post during work to prevent a complete lack of human communication. I figured if I didn't have some form of communication throughout the day it would result in me writing a lengthy, crazed manifesto against technology and develop a hatred against the airline jets that fly overhead.

Once this happens I will be forced to wear a hoodie, buy Ray Ban sunglasses, and grow a mustache....and I just don't look good with a mustache.

Cause my boss and job blows and they are too cheap to pay me enough to even pay my bill sometimes. So why not?

not to mention the boss thats right above me (he's an ok guy) does it too so my excuse for everything is "Howard did it!"

No time to post during work. All my posts are before or after, except this week because I was off. Back to normal next week.

We, specifically Operating Engineers here are allowed reasonable personal use of computers because of the nature of our jobs and the long hours we put in. We essentialy sit in the control booth and monitor operations often for 12 to 16 hrs. at a time, to say it gets boring is an understatement. Of course, that's not a bad thing, excitment at a high pressure steam plant is really something you want to avoid. We have operating checks, maintenance PM's and outplant rounds too but for the most part we're like Fireman, we're here in case something happens.

I keep checking in because after ten years of this place I've made a lot of on-line friends who have shown what they're made of when the chips were down. It's like a comfy chair & a place about memories & friends. And the way things use to be.

FWIW, I love reading your posts - witty, insightful, and informative. Thanks, brother!

I spend time here because my burning passion is banning KP and all his iterations.
