    To busy to dig for the link, but I`m pretty sure I saw a report around that said workers that slacked off for a portion of the day had better quality work than those that didn`t.

    Plus, I don`t want to hear slacker when the average French vacation time is 40 days/year.

    Being a teacher myself, I`d like to know which people in education they`ve questioned to come up with `time wasted per day 2.2 hours`. I wish I had 2.2 hours of time to spend so I can actually get all my work finished before 5 or 6 and then go home and not have to do anything anymore, like regular working people. Except when there`s school dances, parent teacher meetings, report card meetings, regular meetings, courses, etc.

    @TokioKoos
    Totally agree. I don`t know many educators that don`t spend uncompensated hours working at home and going to numerous school activities(required). Plus, don`t forget how precious the little `darlings` are. Geniuses all.

    What? South Carolina is the least wasteful?
    When I worked at one of my prior jobs, I wasted on average 6 hours of my day.
    I fcking hated that job though.

    i`m not even going to read the rest of this because this is making some f-ed up claims.. i`ve been in the workforce quite a while. if there is such a job where people can get away with playing internets 44% of the time, i`d love to send in my resume. You actually think that stuff flies in the real world? Hell no.

    How did no one else notice that Missouri is listed as the number #1 state to waste time, but Mississippi is highlighted in red? Makes me doubt this whole dumb thing. The idiot who drew this doesn`t know Missouri from Mississippi on a drating map? Poor dumb retard. Maybe they should`ve done a chart of retards that don`t know US geography, `cause you all just drating failed!
