This Happens When People Are Bored At Work
Hey, It happens to all of us. We are working hard, really hard, and then… chaos. Our mind starts going all over the place and we are suddenly playing backgammon in our coworker's cubicle or eating lunch dressed as a Game of Thrones character. Concentration it's a hard job and these 50 people decided to forget about it and just have fun. Take a look at this list and get some ideas for next time you are bored at your office. If you think you get bored at work, you should see these people.
Who said selling books was boring? If you have a little imagination and a lot of free time you can turn an empty bookstore into a playground. I can't wait to do this next time I go to book some books.
This is a classic. You are at your desk looking at some Excel sheet you don't understand and suddenly the clips, staples and all those stuff begin to call you. They are saying "Make me a big dinosaur, Steve" and you know it.
Post-its have a lot of uses. You can write a note to your colleagues, stick it in your monitor so you remember to pick up the laundry, and of course use them to create a video game's villain.
Oh my god. I really hope this was made in a hair salon or in a Wig Factory. There's no other place where this can be accepted. It's almost unhealthy.
If you are bored at work you can try to do this awesome goose. It will take you much of the working hours and maybe you can start to sell them online.
I know a lot of uses for Ms. Excel but this is brand new. It takes a lot of talent and a lot of boredom to come out with this.
Never leave a bored Star Wars fan alone with a bunch of ketchup pots. Next time you can walk in and find a real life Obi Wan Kenobi. Or worse.
GAME OF THRONES
Also, don't leave a Game of Thrones fan alone. Next time he will try to create a flying dragon out of some wires, plugs, a monitor and a few boxes.
Let's face it: This could be much much worse. It only takes a bored to hell worker, a black sharpie and a transgenic weird apple to create amazing art.
Yes, this could be a lot worse too. This guy (or girl) had a little more time and a little more talent and decided to make a maze in his… banana.
Hey, you give me a bunch of chairs and you want me to stay there quietly without stacking them and getting inside of the pile? You're an evil monster, Matt.
When you don't pay attention to the delivery guy when he arrives he will build this funny thing with your packages. And you can't complain.
Do you hear that sound? It's a bunch of work procrastinators crying because they took Paint out of Windows. This guy here has a truly innate talent. For excessive boredom.
Let's take this list and convert it into a tutorial for procrastinators. So grab a cup, your favorite pens and draw a pattern. I guess some therapist can analyze that later.
*CSI Music playing in the back* Building a crime scene for dead insects is like the summum of boredom. This guy took the time to set this up and he has no shame about it.
Or badly breaking. Your work contract. You need to be very very bored to think this out. I'm amazed and a little jealous. I wish I could be this clever.
The worst thing about being that much bored is that you can start playing with your food. Your grandma would hate that. And would certainly hate this hand pizza, Steve.
Help! Queen Elsa is trapped in the toilet paper holder! Now, all jokes apart: How can you manage to do this? It's almost magical. And takes a lot of boredom.
THE LEAN TOWER
Someone took the night shift on a football match day. It seems like there's no much work in the juice place and this worker started to pile cups until it was too late.
TIC TAC TOE
At least they didn't play chess. I think the bulldozer always win. It's impossible to bet. Who can beat a bulldozer? Imagine if you win and that machine gets mad.
This is actually cool. He nailed it. He took boredom and turn it into a new kind of art. It seems like that job at the Rubik cubes factory really paid off!
When you are bored you don't care about anything. You don't care about symbols, about american presidents and even about money. Who said money can't buy happiness? At least it can buy a few minutes of fun.
Like I said, when you are bored you don't care about anything. You can insult even one of the greatest inventions of all human history. Actually two inventions: chewing gum and hot dogs.
When you work in a world famous coffee place and latte art is not enough, you need to start practicing some kind of colorful cup art. I wonder what comes next.
A FULL STORY
He was really really bored I think. I bet he started drawing a little thing and then he came out with this whole story of love, action, pyramids, helicopters and monsters. Coming this Summer.
Why spending that much time working on fixing those old big monitors when you can use them to create this wonderful thing? To all the millennials out there: Those are PC Monitors.
This is a spongebob squarepants carved from a pineapple that lives in a pineapple under the sea made of pineapple. And this is also what I call old school procrastination.
Yes, of course it is easier to arrange those boxes as a huge military cannon that arrange them the old boring same way. This is really unbeatable. In every way.
This made me laugh a lot. This guy must be very sick of complaints so he made this little guy the complaints manager. He even has a tiny computer. Aw.
Here we have another cubicle hack that you can imitate with a piece of paper, some rubber and a lot of clips. This is actually really cool. Not at all useful, but really cute.
Sometimes you are even bored at lunch time. So you go to your favorite restaurant and start arranging the fries like a pyramid. You can even say "I'm going, just finishing my fries"
If you need to go out to do something but you don't want your boss to notice you can do what this guy did. I bet no one will say anything. Before firing you.
YES! FINALLY! Someone who did what I want to do everywhere at every time. Actually, is what I'm trying to do right now. I'm writing this from under my desk.
GAME OF URINALS
I know what you can do that is better than always bother everyone at the office talking about your favorite TV Show. Use that fanaticism to bully your fellow coworkers.
What's more funny than two potatoes talking? Going to a Hospital, diving in a pool in mid winter. I don't know. I can name a lot of things funnier than this. So return to work, Cindy.
When no one wants to buy a bath there is no much to do. Look around and if your bosses are not looking just get into the tub and play some quiz on your cellphone.

A NAP LEVEL GOD.
She probably had a party the night before and she's a little hangover. I love how she doesn't care about a single thing. I hope she gets a promotion soon.
So, we already said that bookstores are not as boring as they look. So if you finished playing with the covers, just play with the clients. It's actually a fine game.
They found this out after hearing a co-worker screaming COPY at the machine. The mastermind behind this should be really proud, I can't wait to try this at my workplace.
Let's talk about the two bored people that generated this: The bookstore employee that set this up and the editorial's graphic designer that took the references too seriously and didn't want to work that hard.
You may think that there's nothing wrong about this picture and that's exactly why it is here. There's time when boredom just brings good stuff, like a water dispenser full of champagne.
And of course there's time when other's boredom turns your life into a living hell. If they can't work, they will do as much as they can to bother you.
When work is slow you can always set up a joust in the deposit using a helmet, a box as a shield and a tube as a sword. The one who wins pays lunch.
Emergencies are not as often as they used to be. If you have a lot of time-out just grab those bloody (no pun intended) stretchers and take an outdoors nap.
Another classic. You can travel the office using your chair and saving the world. This is a special one because you need a partner to accomplish, so it's a group job.
Make sure there is always time for some good hockey in your daily routine. There should be a law for this. You should be able to get up and just play hockey down the aisle.
SELF CRITICAL BOREDOM
Yes, I know I should be working. Yes, I know I'm wasting not only company money, I'm also wasting office supplies. Yes, I know where the door is. Let me grab my stuff
Working on a friday it's pretty much like this. If they put this effort into working instead of taking funny pictures they would be millionaires. Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.
They got a new toaster in the break room. Someone turned it around and then placed a simple sign on it. It was a day full of people screaming TOAST.
