Are you employed? Or are you a tax-dodger sponging off the rest of us? I only ask as certain posters seem to spend an inordinate amount of their time on the Phora. If yer posting between shifts(like myself) etc then fair play to ya, if not - get a job. [YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.....]

I am employed, but I wouldn't call it 'work' these days. :D

I start my new job in january, presently I'm just avoiding being all too lazy, while at the same time making sure I do as little as I can get away with in the office.

Are you employed?

Intermittently. Presently, no.

11-23-2006, 10:20 AM
I do contract work. At the moment I'm taking a break after finishing a 9-month contract, before starting a 6-month one. I don't collect welfare.

With the Chapter 11 proceedings carrying on, there is little to no product moving out of my company. Currently I am showing up to post witticisms on the Phora and collect a meager check.

Are you employed?

God forbid. . .

Or are you a tax-dodger sponging off the rest of us?

Yes, in the immortal words of Edward G. Robinson: work is for saps.

If yer posting between shifts(like myself) etc then fair play to ya, if not - get a job.

No, die and rot and hell.

I'm an international playboy novelist in a band.

I'm selling used books on the Internets, which gives me enough to scrape by and requires minimal work (15 minutes a day to go to the post office). I'm going to take a rather lucrative job shovelling snow this winter.

I work at least 14 hours a day.

I work at a computer so I can take a lot of MSF or Phora breaks.

I also take a couple of walks everyday, especially if it is sunny. And I always make at least one trip to Starbucks to buy my latte and kibbitz around with the 20-year-olds behind the counter.

My wife and I usually eat out on weeknights, we like checking out restaurants, and I continue to work after we come home.

There is a lot of freedom and the work is fun but I have a huge deadline in mid-December.

I work an average of three evenings a week. It is good. I like it.

I work 7 days a week.

employed. The ironic thing is, I am considered "part-time" yet I constantly work over 40 hours/week, without benefits or profit-sharing or anything. It's a rip off. But, the job market is weak around here, and I need something to pay for rent, food, school, bills.

11-23-2006, 09:35 PM
I work a 35 hour week, its a fairly sweet deal.

11-24-2006, 01:45 AM
I work 40+ hours a week and in June I will be taking classes for my job which I'm required to do.

11-24-2006, 01:58 PM
20 hours a week minimal and college.
You're all lazy.
