How do you kill time ‘officially’ ?

How do you kill time creatively ? Ty attending a ‘conference call’.

A ‘conference call’ is a fantastic invention where you hide behind a phone and carry on what you are doing – eat, sleep, watch TV, play with cat et al, all the while pretending to work.

Attend a typical conference call and you could hear many of the following at the same time:

  1. Telephone ringing
  2. Pressure cooker whistling
  3. Children laughing
  4. Children crying
  5. TV News playing
  6. Swear words
  7. Ambulance
  8. Fire Engines
  9. Wall drilling
  10. Call on-hold music

There is one standard output of a conference call : Nothing.

There is only one decision in a conference call – To have an offline meeting to solve the issue that the conference call was supposed to solve.

So, what can you do while in a conference call :

  1. Play ‘Angry Birds’ on your iPhone.
  2. Clean your ear
  3. Do pushups
  4. Sleep, if you are not doing any one of the above.
