I feel this belong in the rant section. I realise that we are not allowed threads about individual members but I am sure there is no rules about
threads about threads. So, to the Rant.
I was stuck in work on a 12 hour shift yesterday, nothing much going on but I have to sit at my desk anyway, so of course there isn't much to do apart
from browse ATS. I do not usually partake in large threads because I like to be able to get a full feel of the conversation, I think bumping into a
thread without knowing what is going on is akin to butting in on a conversation you have only half heard, so I think best to avoid it normally.
Well anyway, I browse the recent threads list in both on and off topic and find that the topics were a bit dry and as I had 12 hours to burn I had to
seek entertainment else where. Now I had actually seen the "Post A Funny" thread many times before but because it was hundreds of pages long I had
never opened it but yesterday I thought, what the hell, why not. Anyway I opened the thread around 1300 (Grenwich Mean Time) and started browsing, I
was suprised, I started on the last page and just started working backwards for as long as I didn't get bored. You see this is where the trouble
starts, browsing funny pictures isn't exactly what your boss wants to pay your wages for and when he's in the same office and he hears regular streams
of me bursting into fits of laughter, he soon realises somethings afoot.
I must admit, I was suprised by the steady stream of belting funny pictures, and if you remember I did say I planned to read for as long as the thread
kept me interested, anyway 6 and a half hours later, I'm still in the same freaking thread, over 150 pages read........ and I'm still suffering from
random bursts of laughter. How did I waste over 6 hours of my life, in 1 single ATS thread.......and how have I still got a job??????
Damn you ATS and damn you OP of Post a funny I'm bored.
P.s. Another 12 hour shift today, I guess I better find where I left off yesterday
