How to Waste the Last 5 Minutes at Work

Have you ever noticed how those last 5 minutes of work go by the slowest? I sure have. That's why I made a list. Don't worry. I'm here to save the day (or the last 5 minutes of your work day).

1) Check your online bill due dates.
2) Throw away garbage from your purse or wallet.
3) Google or youtube something random. Related randomness will generate for your entertainment.
4) Explain to a cold caller from India why you can't just transfer them to the executive team at your company.
5) Chat/flirt with a co-worker. I prefer flirt because quite honestly I could use the practice.
6) Check facebook. Heck, just post how bored you are.
7) Pick the split ends from your hair. Guy equivalent - don't you think about sex every 2.8 seconds or something?
8) Delete old emails.
9) Daydream.
10) Write a list of the top 10 ways to waste the last 5 minutes at work.

<3 always,



  1. This was very funny and it reminded me of a TV show about amatuers making a movie. It was some reality show that I loved but only lasted one season. The winner got to work for Steven Spielberg.

    So it's 5 minutes to go and a guy in a cubicle sees another guy. He makes a finger/thumb pistol and shoots the guy, who pretends to draw a bow and arrow assault at him. A moment later a machine gunner enters and then a bazooka etc, the whole thing escalated and eventually the whole building was destroyed. Just a movie, but it was so funny you just reminded me of it.

  2. I'm glad someone enjoyed reading that. Ohh the 9-5 lifestyle.

  3. Such a great post! Love visiting your blog!
