How to avoid office work
Making the Tea
Going down to the greasy sandwich van
Taking up smoking
surfing the net
watching live streaming tv
Go to "talk to someone down in finance"
Peruse the stationary catalogue.
Take everything out the stationery cupboard and put it back in again.
Make a fabulous wall chart like the Blue Peter Xmas appeal with tin-foil and highlighters, to display the targets you're supposed be trying to meet.
Try to beat the Guiness world record for the biggest Rubber-band ball.
Try to beat the Guiness world record for the longest chain of paper-clips
Phone a friend. If the boss walks pass, just say in a loud voice "Yes, I'l be sure to get that actioned."

hide a suduko puzzles book inside your comuter tech manuel, and fake a paper jam...
Fake a paper jam?
Na, do it for real. Sabotage the photocopier by trying to feed something with paper-clips. But blame it on someone else.
That's a good one... Talking about photocopiers. A fun thing to do is when you're finished copying set the quantity to 100 and see what happens to the next person using it...
Marking your bin with 'Incoming Post' is also a good one, I used that before.
Okay, that's more boredom release, but hey, you need some fun...
Office Hurdle racing is good fun too, but slightly dangerous. Somebody might come up and quote from the Health and Safety procedures.
And here's my favourite practical joke: Wet your hands (eg. on the toilet) so that they are dripping, walk up behind somebody with short hair (ie. exposed neck) making a sneezing sound while simultaneously shaking your hand. Prepare to run after that.
God, I am so bored, I should really be going home now instead of sitting around here...

OH MY GOD! I love that.
I dare someone to cut and paste it and email it to the big boss.
People are looking at me strange cos I keep giggling. Organising training events shouldn't be this amusing.
