    I probably work about 50-60% of the time, but a lot depends on how busy or overwhelmed I am. I don’t feel guilty about any breaks I take, because 2 minutes perusing the internet is nothing compared to what some of the people here do.

    Some days I like my job, some days I don’t.

    As for what’s acceptable, well that’s going to depend on your personal outlook. Since I only take a few minutes here and there, I think I’m good. I don’t look at anything more than WB, email and other boards. My boss spends 98% of her time looking at stuff for her wedding. It all just depends. LOL

    @kgirl91:  Hmm I had a hard time voting in your poll about the “should” be working.  I’m at work right now but my bosses have nothing for me to do.  I answer the phone when it rings, I work on projects when they give them to me but otherwise I don’t feel bad about surfing the net. FWIW I do like my job, and I like when I’m busy, that’s just not all the time.

    I AM AT WORK RIGHT NOW. ahah. It is 2.08 am here.. not much happens on night shift and I probably only work 25% of these  shifts.  Day shifts are closer to 90-95% however.  I’m a nurse.  If my patients are well and happy and all the jobs are done, there is really not much else for me to do.  Weddingbee it is! 🙂

    Over 90% of the time. Never take personal calls, use social media, check personal email etc. I do occasionally “shift” my lunch break if I am required to work through it and use that time to do those things, but since I didn’t get a lunch break, I figure that’s justified.
