The more subtle symptoms of Busy Bragging

#1

as in more subtle than just going on about how busy you are all the time

  • having an out of office auto-reply on saying something like “I’m in meetings Tues and Wed but will be checking emails”. Why did I need to know this?

  • loudly sighing or putting your head in your hands to let everyone know you’ve received a VERY IMPORTANT email.

keep listing others in here if you like, it might be cathartic.


#2

Not wanting to change the world
Not looking for a new England
Looking for another girl


#3

I’d change the IDIOT DICKHEAD spelling of subtle in the title but I just don’t have the time rn


#4

I’ve pretty much got nothing to do tonight.

Aside from make my smoothie.

Is this the sort of thing you mean?


#5

oh sorry that should read SULTRY


#6

current boss does this about twice a week, and then looks around at us for a response. We all made a vow like a year ago to completely ignore it, so he’ll often just sit there looking at us before having to ask for our attention.

its fucking brilliant/awful.


#7

I’ve done it massive sigh; types furiously


#8

dude?


#9

loads of people do the out of office thing at my work, don’t get why. i put mine on only when i’m actually off, and tell them to email someone else or wait as i’m not checking any emails when i’m off.

i do kind of do the email thing, but more if it’s VERY STUPID rather than VERY IMPORTANT. like the other day where i got an email from my manager with nothing but “epic banana?” in the body.


#10

being busy makes me feel less busy


#11

I’ve done the big sigh thing twice in the last 30 minutes.

I am very busy though


#12


#13

can’t stand this.

“i’ve sorry i didn’t do x, i’ve been swamped”

shut up. SHUT UP.


#14

“I was that busy that I had to go to a Costa drive through for my tea”


#15

“didn’t help though, they made me wait for 10 minutes for it to cool down before they would give it to me.”


#16

People who do architecture are really bad for this. They claim they have loads of work, but i’m not convinced it’s that much more than anyone else.


#17


#18

Saying ‘bloody part timers!’ or ‘half day is it?’ when people leave at the end of the day and they haven’t left yet.

this gif comes so close to being a loop but is not :frowning:
