    I'm retired so the problem doesn't arise. When I was working it wasn't the kind of job where I had either the time or the opportunity to do other stuff.

    What tactics do you use to hide that you are reading and posting on the forums while at work?

    I have two screens, so I use the screen passers by cannot see because of how it's angled. Alt-Tab also comes in handy.


    use multiple tabs open, when the boss is comming, swich to another tab fast (the "work tab") :smiley:

    Oh, man. I have a co-worker who lumbers around the office with a cane. The cadence of her walk gives me the creeps, cause it sounds like death is coming for me.

    It doesn't help that she places her hand on my shoulder and then says "Do you mind if I touch you?"

    I have one lady with obnoxiously loud heels that I can hear in my sleep. My bosses, though, they kind of shuffle.

    True. That, and you can spend the whole day farting in your office. Oh, the joys of working from home.

    Smart phone with 15 sec screen timeout and my head phones plugged in. Sometimes even with actual music playing. (Listening to music is fine.)

    I still get caught from time to time. Luckily a) my boss likes me, and b) I'm an otherwise reliable employee with essential skills it would be difficult to replace.
