I think ive got you beat SaintGRW. Im at my summer internship right now. About three weeks ago, they ran out of assignments for me. So basically, I have done nothing but read stuff on the internet for 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week, for 3 weeks. It is so incredibly boring. Unbelievable. I get maybe 5 minutes of work, 2 times a week. Im glad Im stopping this tomorrow to go back to school.

i'm just hired thru a temp agency i'm afraid they might say something bad to the temp agency cause i'm on the forum and aim express all day?? but other employee's have trillian so i don't think aim express matters, but i'm afraid they might give bad feedback to the temp agency. even though i have NOTHING to do for 2 weeks til they train me for the catalog update

ahhh, I miss internships: even if it sucked, you knew the end was near.

Anyway, being bored because you have nothing to do is much better than being bored with your work. If you just need to get something to do, then at least you have hope of it improving ;)
