View Full Version : Time Spent at Work

5th Nov 2002, 16:22
A quick thought occured to me the other day, given that people go to work, how much of that time each day do you actually spend being occupied by the job you are employed to do?? This leads onto the question what do you do in the time you are not doing your primary job??

I couldn't possibly disclose that here there's not enough room.....

What do you mean there's not enough room?

Apart from legitimate activities (working, eating, going to the toilet, etc.), I only do one thing at work. I'm sure I don't need to say what it is... the fact that you're reading this post should be enough for you to figure it out. How much time do I spend in this activity? Hmm, check my post count :eek:

difficult one for me to answer as I work shifts so it varies from 6 hour to 10 hours a day / night

I think on average it works out at about 35 hours a week
if you subtract lunchbreaks and the occasional 5 minute break that brings it down to about 25 hours, and then of course there's ppruning time.. I think I do about 1 hour's work a day ;)

I do hope my boss doesn't read this :D
