Work Day Chronicles: Boredom

He looks out the third floor window from his desk. The sky was grey, it was raining, and all he could think about was the warm weather that was soon the follow.

The was the middle of March, the NCAA tourney was starting to take shape, the NBA was in the home stretch, and the Lions had just signed three “big:” name free agents.

“This is depressing” he thought, “It’s 53 degrees out, and I’m stuck in here.”

It could have been worse though, could have been a bright sunny day. But still, weather like this, he prefers to be at home on the couch watching hours of Mad Men on Netflix.

Ten minutes had passed and he found himself refreshing the Twitter app in hopes to see another splash in free agency signings, or something of worth so he can make a comment on it. But there was nothing. Just the same old trash that people favorite/retweet.


Switching over to Instagram, he went through all the stories posted and eyerolled at every girl trying hawk their online beauty products. Or every college student that was on Spring Break that week.

“How do you even affo-…. oh right, how could I forget..” he thought to himself.

That’s how it’s been since the start of the new year. Mindlessly scrolling through social media, trying to kill time.

What to do? What to do?

He opened a new tab in Google Chrome and pulled up the local newspaper.


Just a bunch of complaining about the poor effort the Pistons turned in the previous night. One was about how the Lions were in the bottom 4 of free agent destinations. And another read about the Wings current position in the lottery draft. Negativity surrounded the entire site.

He took a deep breath and let out a long sigh, “This sucks.”
