Well, it finally happened. The proverbial last straw. My employer has decided, starting March 19th, to take away my Internet access. It is not just me they are blocking, but everyone like me. They've decided that only the important folks get to have the Internet, and I am clearly not important. But, that is not the real issue.
The real issue is that I'm going to have nothing to do with my day anymore. I have an extraordinary amount of downtime at my job. And, without the Internet, I am lost. Needless to say, I am pissed off. While the Internet may not be the best use of my time, until they give me a job that is actually demanding, I'd like to know what I am supposed to do? I don't know anyone who doesn't have access to the Internet at work, and I don't know anyone who has a job so demanding, that they don't have a significant amount of time to surf the web. Hell, I know people who watch television shows online at their jobs. But, the tide has turned, and it looks like I might have to find a new job.
So, for the next week, I am going to abuse the hell out of the Internet. Absorb as much as I can. Until I am forced to sit here and stare off into space. What an effective use of my time.
