I worked up until Wednesday, so I only took Thurs/Fri off. Nobody really expected me to be productive all day long and I used my weekends to do all my appointments. Meanwhile, my friend took the full week off before her wedding b/c she had so much to do that she couldn’t fit in on the weekends and she didn’t have downtime at her company like I did.

Hahahaha.  I have wondered the same thing.  My boss even told me that while I’ll be here until the Tuesday before, I “won’t ACTUALLY be useful for THOSE two days.”  It was somewhat offensive because he is slightly a jerk but still funny.  Concentration is not my strong point lately, and I have 7 1/2 weeks to go.

I feel the same, so much to do and think about, at work i’m not super busy either so I just sit and think wow I could be doing so much if I was home.

Oh man….if work isn’t REALLY busy then I get totally distracted.  I have pleanty of work to do  but if it isn’t pressing I get distracted….oh geez and my boss (of 3.5 years since I’ve worked here) quit last week…so things are somewhat disorganized

The more meetings to fill up my time the better…

I was in charge of a major festival at work that was two weeks before my wedding.  I came back and spent about a day really truly paying attention and wrapping up everything from the festival.  I then spent four days in the office not really doing anything, and took the last week off.  I think I would have checked out sooner if I hadn’t been trying desperately to get the festival running.

I am waiting to get fired for being a total waste of space these days.

My wedding is in less than 2 weeks- October 10, and I have found there is an inverse relationship between the approach of the wedding and the decline of my non-wedding IQ.  It is the busy season at work, but here I am typing away on Weddingbee!  I find myself actually resenting my job for “forcing me” to be here everyday.  The nerve!  Don’t these people realize how much I still have to do?

@teamzeewagen – I am the same way.  as you. We have a conference for our clients next week and there is a dinner I am supposed to attend if there is room for me, like I am supposed to put everything on hold incase they need me to be a space filler.   I am like “I have such more important things to do than this silly conference”

I am glad there are other people who are feeling like slackers at work.
