    I've had other jobs before, but at the moment I work in a government department. Reasonable hours and not bad pay for what is mostly low level clerical work updating various databases.

    Today I got up to get some water and, after walking back to my desk, I realised I could probably do with taking a trip to the toilet while I was still on my feet. I decided I'd wait.

    And then it struck me.

    The only reason I'd decided against it was so I'd have something else to break the monotony between then and 5 o'clock! I'm so bored at work that doing a wee now counts as a major highlight of my day. Compared to my job, urination is now actually entertaining.

    As I said, the work isn't hard, the conditions are very good, the pay is fine... but suddenly I know I've got to get out of here.

    I use the restroom 3-4 times in my 8 hours shift. For the same reasons. I never have to go that much at home :D

    I agree, you're too bored to stay there. But be careful about it. The grass isn't always greener on the other side of the cubicle. Look for something more stimulating and you could wind up with a lot more stress. Just a tip.

    Hah

    Just don't get canned for being on the toilet to long at work ;P

    No, you've become bored with your job and guess what, we all do at somepoint. I work in a call center, and the more I work here the more I realize what bs is going on in the environment, if sitting at a desk isn't your thing, try something with a little more physical activity, if that doesn't fancy you, try a call center... quite a bit of interaction and a good mix of sitting/standing positions you can try! ;P

    that sucks. I'm getting pretty bored here too. It is not that I am not busy and have shit to do, it is just really the same shit every day...

    I even went as far as telling my boss and my bosses boss that I want - or need a new career...tell me how bad of an idea that was...

    I know the feeling... I've been working this job for 6 months now and I must have gained 15 lbs just by sitting on my ass, only venturing off on breaks for a smoke and a trip to the vending machine. v.v

    That's the first time I've ever heard anyone recommend working at a call center...I've heard nothing but horror stories about them, mostly related to getting screamed at by idiots all day with stupid problems.

    Ain't it fun?

    I've been working at a call center since January. Half my calls, I hear :My internet don't work, you better send a tech out." Usually it ends up being their router. Reset it, and it works.
