If your logistics company logistic things round England on pallets, then you could phone me up & do a deal for me to do lots of work for you. That'd mop up a few minutes.:=

Engage in continuous process improvement, cost cutting, right-sizing, drivel slogan construction or as I do as an Expediter, currently, silently rage at the gormless talking heads on television. Doesn't matter what channel. Write a report.

Take a plug out of the socket which some important machine would use and spent the rest of the day scratching your head and phoning the boss telling him or her that the problem looks unfixable, and that you may need to work overtime to get to the core problem:E

Parapunter,

Doubt it, very small group. the entire holland consists of me and 1 other who is now on holiday. unless i've dropped myself in it now and told one of the 10 people in head office that there's little work to do. If you do work there, skype me

To be honest, I'm only joining in because I've run out of work to do todayas well :}

On reflection, I doubt it's you lot that I work for, though I should have pretended to be a director - that could have been fun.:rolleyes:

well then i know you couldn't have been in the same company, as they're all on holiday and it would have meant you were david brentesque

Sounds like you need to employ me!
I'm such an expert at causing problems that you'll never have a bored day again...

If you can't solve the problem of not knowing what to do when all the problems are solved then you probably aren't that good at your job and just think that there are no problems to solve. Hence there are problems to solve so you can go ahead and solve them. The good thing about having problems to solve therefore means that you didn't not have any problems to solve and so the problem of not knowing what to do when there were no problems to solve never became a problem. Therefore you aren't not very good at your job.

I think.

O well, Ive got loads to get on with. But im sooooooo bored I hate my summer job. The best advice I can give is be a student like me, that way there is always the pub for an excuse or all the other millions of things that us students use as an excuse to get out of work. Also you have the added bonus of tax dodging, which is always nice ;)

Take a leaf out of the Fireman's book. When you're not on a shout, you check-out your equipment and keep a clean machine. Otherwise play pool or suduko. Computer chess (strategy planning).

Substituting 'Magnet' as your supplier of course (and don't forget the conveyor belt).
