Loafing Cheat Sheet

iVillage.co.uk put together a nifty beginners cheat sheet on loafing. Although the fake screen saver made to look like a downloading icon is cutting edge, the rest will be familiar to any competent loafer. To make it easier for our user base, we've summarized the cheat sheet ourselves, making avoiding work even easier:

-Keep a messy desk, as though you've been working like a dog, and sigh a lot.
-Always have an important looking excel spreadsheet open on your desktop. Furrow brow, and stroke chin thoughtfully.
-Find a screen saver that looks like you're downloading. If anyone asks why you aren't doing anything just point to your screen and say "I'm waiting for such and such to download..."
-Have a jacket on the back of your chair at all times. That way if you're somewhere you shouldn't be it looks like you haven't left your desk for long.
-If you have to leave your desk to flirt with the secretary, carry a file. It makes you look like you're on your way to do something important.
-Stick a pencil behind your ear - always works for builders.
