    It's Friday, and I don't have anything pressing to do today that I can't put off until Monday. I'm bored and I want to go home and play video games. What should I do?

    EDIT: I should have added option #5: Seriously, you made a poll for this?

    Good point. I should add that I am not salaried. It would use up PTO. Definitely not the best use for it, but I've already taken that into consideration.

    Depends on how ya feel. If it would cut down on any kinda stress you're going through, then by all means. Especially if you can afford the pay cut, or use vacation hours to cover.

    Let your boss know, and leave at noon.

    That way, he can't say you're going behind his back, and you're putting in an appearence - which shows commitment. Just take it as leave, and you should be fine.

    (Of course, it largely depends on your job, but in most cases a reasonable boss should be okay if you take some R&R on your own leave.)

    I really don't need to leave work to relieve stress, I'm just very bored today. That's why I posted the poll, because it certainly wouldn't kill me to stay, but I know I haven't had an afternoon to myself in a long time, so I'm really undecided.

    My boss would be totally fine with it, she's cool. And I would never leave without telling her, that option in the poll was mostly a joke, just like the "staying later" bit. In reality, there are only two options I was considering: leaving at 12 or staying and slacking on the internet.

    Just go on Stumbleupon.com for the rest of the day. And then wonder how college kids get anything done with said website existing.

    Perfect! I was actually considering posting a thread yesterday asking for random websites to waste my time on. Collegehumor has been exhausted already.
