    So when your boss comes around the corner and you are browing the message boards on ride monkey, how do you play it off as if it is no big deal.

    Me- I just chuckle, close the web browser, and act like I was looking at a link in an email that a business associate sent me. Key-try not to act too startled.:lighten:

    At my last job I, uh, accidentally hit the print button on the toolbar without knowing it.

    My boss came up to me, gave me a little bit of a wry smile and said, "I think these are yours" as he handed me four pages of some random thread. Oops. :imstupid:

    My boss doesn't really care. As long as I'm not browsing when I have work that needs to be done. Usually I have more time to finish a project than what I need so its never been a problem.

    I do need to keep an eye out for the CEO, but hes not around often. I keep my browser pretty small and in the corner. I just click on the autocad window to hide it.

    OWNER: "What is that!?

    SB: "I'm putting rusty bike chains in this girls mouth".

    OWNER: "Did those ads get approved?"

    SB: "I haven't heard from them".

    OWNER: "I'll call them".

    SB: "Cool".

    I did that too. I think it was a RIP lesbians and microwaves thread. I am so glad I have my own printer now...

    Just about everytime our "supervisor" come in, I go into the lounge to show him something related to the conversation we are having. And the WTF picture thread...
