Amuse Me

Puff Away…

I don’t smoke, so it annoys me to no end when I get told that I can’t take a break to do things at work like surf the web or make short and sweet blog posts, but the smokers can go hang out outside and puff away. Jennifer even suggested that I should get a wireless modem for my Handspring Visor and then go outside and blog from outside, enjoying the same amount of time the smokers take for a break.

Now, thanks to Dick, I don’t need any of that! Oh no … I can just take a Cyber Cigarette Break! Ah ha! That’s all I needed all along… Nothing quite like a good refreshing cigarette – even if it’s only virtual!

Unfortunately, I don’t think the boss is going to see that as being the same thing…

I think I’m going to have to get some clove cigarettes this weekend because I hate standing around when everyone else is smoking during our break. Mike would kill me if I started smoking actual cigarettes again, but he never really minded the taste of cloves.

I so AGREE with you. Let’s rationalize it for people with a deadly habit, however, if one so inclines to want to get away from the stresses of it all, they are cast glares. I never understood it myself!

I personally don’t like smoking either and nothing pissed me off more when I was working when the girls would go off for a smoke break and drop their work on my desk and ask me to do it while they puffed away. I can’t even begin to tell you just how much it pissed me off. Still does and I don’t work there anymore! LOL

Interesting order of priorities that one, Christine. Smokers get a break to poison themselves while the rest of us can’t surf the net or write a little inoffensive blog post in less than 5 minutes? Ha ha! The whole idea of the cyber-cigarette is a little depressing, don’t you think? 😉
