Site Seeing

Inflatable TV from www.openaircinema.us

You’ve always been faithful to the employee handbook. Pocket post-it notes or spare pens? Never. Take an hour and a half for lunch? Not you. Look at NSFW websites? Well… maybe just a little.

Seems like you’re the only one punching in to the office this week, since you’re hoarding vacation days for the next Vegas getaway. And with only an hour’s worth of busywork to occupy you for five days, browsing on the side never sounded so good.


Don’t worry, no one will be around to hear you LOL at translations gone bad on www.engrish.com. Because face it, you'd be tempted to order “steamed red crap with ginger” from your Chinese takeout place if they had it on the menu.

Be a voyeur as good intentions go wrong at the Fail Blog. The gallery of user-submitted photos stamped with the word "Fail" includes kids' drawings, store displays and signs, and news videos.

See what real people say in their private text messages, especially when a voice call is obviously more appropriate, at txtmsg.blogtog.com. From breaking up to breaking bad news, you won’t know whether to laugh or cry.

The anonymous, snarky note is a staple of bathroom stalls and shared refrigerators the world over. Browse hours’ worth of unintentional humor at www.passiveaggressivenotes.com.

If wasting hours of company time on these websites is wrong, you don’t want to be right.
That is, until your boss gets back.
