A typical day at work for a government employee

07:59: Mad rush to sign in before the time is up.

08:15: Log-on to your computer > Log-on to Facebook > Stalk friends on Facebook > Log-on to MSN Messenger > See if anyone interesting is online > Check various emails > Browse through Haveeru or any other website of interest for a while

09:15 or so: Breakfast hour!! Call up your tea buddies at other offices > Plan on where to meet > Zoom out of the door before giving a heads up to the supervisor who himself/herself may not be around OR Gather with your tea buddies at work > Head out the door regardless of whether you are leaving a whole section man less behind

11:00 or so: Breeze back into the office reeking of cigarette smoke, roshi, mashuni and what not! No explanations required OR Head off to the bank or to handle some personal matter (mostly those who operate their own businesses)

12:00: Time for lunch. Everyone scrambles to head out of the door as fast as their legs can take them

13:00: Those who are faithful to their jobs make it back on time whilst the groupies who go out for lunch are still not back

13:30: Time to get some work done. Type some official correspondence while taking breaks in between to talk on the phone, or chat with someone who just buzzed you or look up the notifications received on Facebook.

14:15 or so: Yawn!! Lunch has made everyone a bit lazy and uninterested in work. Time to do more interesting things such as watch a movie or a new episode of a series that interests you. For everyone else there’s always YouTube!

15:30 Feels so much rejuvenated! But then again there’s not much time left to do anything else is there?

15:45: Start primping to go home. Take out your cosmetics ladies and start primping away.

15:59: Rushes to sign out and win the award for being the first one out of the door!

Whew! That was a hectic day wasn’t it!
