How many of you are in the presence of folks who do little or absolutely nothing all day?

Please don’t email me your response because it would overload the circuits!

The do nothing’s walk around as if they are the kings of the jungle; giving orders and taking names. Their incompetence matches their laziness. They are infectiously contagious because their allies are also freeloaders. Remember, birds of the same feathers flock together!

The do nothing’s have a non – discriminatory clause because they come in all races, genders, sizes, shapes, and colors. At work, they talk a good game as they acrobatically swirl in their seats at their desks. They haven’t picked up a pencil in years other than to thump it on their desk which substitutes for a drum set. Embarrassingly, they routinely show up late for meetings when they elect to grace their colleagues with their presence.

No dummies, they are computer savvy because they surf the Internet and play candy crush all day. Did I mention that they collect bets for all of the gambling pools? Fantasy football is their thing!

Wednesday is a big day, because they start planning their weekend.

Long lunches and excessive breaks are characteristic. No one looks for them because they have so many hiding nooks making it too time consuming to locate them. Whew! It's exhausting just thinking about them!

They talk excessively, hang outside with the smokers, crack jokes, mind other folks' business, and lie continuously about things that really don’t matter.

Stop the madness!

Excuse me! I keep rattling on while you are preparing their incomplete weekly reports. Rather than deal with their foolishness, you just do the work yourself. More work for you; less for them! What an unfair deal, but it keeps those spongers out of your hair; out of sight, out of mind. Who wants to be bothered!

Thought they haven't worked a full day in years, don’t be fooled. They are exceptionally smart, because they manage to hang on to their jobs.


They have mastered an amazing technique ... how to get others to do their work!

Phenomenal, isn’t it!

Let me stop talking about those do nothing’s because the conversation is much ado about nothing! If there is one in your environment, just shout Amen!

Trust me ....

I'll hear you and so will they, because they are all ears with nothing to do! Photo credit:
