OK, fess up...

  1. How many come to this site when you're SUPPOSED to be working??? I'll be the first to admit that I'm guilty. :stone Working nights sometimes I sneak on here whenever I get some free time, usually 5 minutes every night cuz I'm afraid that I may have missed something and can't wait until I get home. Of course there are those nights when I don't even think about it due to the work load. Once I came here after I gave report and was still
    here an hour later. Everyone said, "What are you still here for???" "Huh.......doing my monthly summaries" (Yeah, that sounds good!!!)

    I come here before studying and it consistently turns out to be instead of studying! I'm also a night shifter, so I come here after work to get "sleepy" and then two hours later, still not sleeping.

    If I thought I could get away with it, I would use my client's computer, and be on this board all night instead of working!

    So far I've been lucky and haven't gotten in trouble. The only sites that are blocked on our computers are the game sites.
    I've come here too when I get home after work at 0900 or so only to find It's 12noon!

    I work weekend on the night shift. I come on at least once each day that I work.

    I have only come to this site once at work. Never know who is interested in checking what sites are being used at work. I have mentioned this site too often at work. If they ever checked the sites being used, they would know this one belonged to me. Besides I can't seem to spend a few minutes here and be satisfied. Usually the time gets away from me.

    I check this site a lot while at work. If anyone asked, I would justify it because I learn a lot of valuable info here, like current drug shortages, teaching/training websites, national conferences......

    Yeeeaaah, that's the ticket.

    Yep - on site at work now! Figure if anyone tracks it, I can claim it's work related!

    I am at work right now and doing research on this BB. I often find very good solutions to clinical problems we face here in this ER Without this web resource here at work, many pt's would needlessly suffer. Gary

    I wish I had time to surf at work! Besides, we had some unit clerks that used to do their shooping and joke surfing all the time online while at work, and now we're all monoitored pretty closely.

    But it sure would rock if on those slow days I could pop in!

    If I pop in here from work I try to keep my reading confined to nursing related threads.
