Easily The Best Use of Spare Time I’ve Seen in a While

From the guy who made this:

I got really bored at work today, made this in excel, helped pass the time.

And since I found this on Reddit, here is my favorite response:

As a younger redditor, the frequency of “bored at work” posts like this confuse me. don’t you get in trouble for stuff like this? why weren’t you doing your work? did you really not have any work to do? i don’t mean to sound judgemental, im just genuinely curious. i have no idea how real office jobs actually work.

So innocent yet so true.  What the hell are you people doing all day?  I can sit here and admit that I’m writing this post as we speak but it’s my job.  Then again I used to be an office worker and know that the average American works maybe 30 min out of the 8 hours they have.  And that’s being generous.

So for all you Mike Tyson Excel creators out there, keep doing it.  You don’t really have to work at your job and if you get that bored, put that stuff on a site and make money for it.

    This is amazing. It’s just like the old Punchout! Don’t know if you’ve seen this yet but if not, here is another “productive” use of Excel: http://www.acdcrocks.com/excel/

    I love that kids comment — if you took the time I actually worked in a given week I would be making like $1000 an hour lol

    That poor kid will learn..youth so innocent!

    Office jobs tend to have periods of zero (or near zero) activity, then shift into “GO GO GO GO!” for a brief and intense amount of time. Consulting is the ultimate of this- 2 weeks of no projects, snooze. Show up Monday, “Hey Bryan, you’re going to Texas/NYC/Atlanta/Fort Whatever tomorrow!” Great, thanks for the warning, I guess I’ll get my dry cleaning done there, then. Best was when I worked at the NOC on a military base for the 7PM-7AM shift during wargames. Yummy army food for breakfast! MREs at 2AM! Long periods of time when I beat 7th Guest! Trying to tune a military radio to pick up the Monday night football game (nah, didn’t work).
