Isn't that in our job description somewhere, like section 154, part 265, paragraph 306 and bullet point 659! It states that all person(s) who are employed by this establishement shall at some point and time drift into the far off corners of the universal mind, and that said person(s)should proceed to the nearest computer and aimlessly drift into the magical world of the internet for an unlimited time period that they find necessary to prepare themselves for their duties!!!!

Yes!! And it's even worse because I manage our CRA program or C.R.A.P. for short which requires me to spend a lot of time on the internet anyway. Makes my frequent BOL distractions even easier to justify.

This is my day way too often. Finding it harder every day to focus.

I'm there. My ADD has been kicked into overdrive. Compliance isn't exactly the most exciting job. It takes work, sometimes more than I can bear, to stay focused on this dorky stuff.

and is it only me or do you take your phone with you to the bathroom, and of course just check Facebook/email/ebay quickly, and next thing I know I've lost 10 minutes. Co workers must really think I have stomach issues!

I thank my IT department every single day for restricting access to YouTube. If it was enabled, I more than likely would be unemployed.

We are also restricted. However, if one does go to our website and search "YouTube" and lick on the link, the link isn't blocked. One can save the link as a shortcut on one's desktop to avoid the dance around IT's controls. Not that I would do that....

That's how I'm getting so far in Candy Crush Soda. More on my plate at work than I care to even tackle, but I can't convince them to give me a pick slip either.

I have Facebook and YouTube access... so yeah.

But not web-based email, so thank goodness for that! I'd be out deleting spam all the time. laugh
