Did you know that it is National Goof Off Day?

Asked by erichw1504 (26341 points ) March 22nd, 2011

Sit back, relax and do whatever you want! It’s National Goof Off Day!

So, you’re at work or class. Maybe you’re home doing chores or taking care of the kids. You do this almost every day, so why not goof off a little? Give yourself a break and be lazy. Do something you’re not supposed to be doing. Slack off at work, skip a class or two, push off chores until tomorrow!

What will you do on this wonderful holiday?

Also, let it all hang out in this thread and GOOF OFF!

@erichw1504 : Did you know that your refrigerator is running?

@troubleinharlem Did you know that you forgot your salami sandwich today?

cookieman's avatar

I did not know that, but seeing as I’m home with a sick munchkin, that works out well.

WOOHOO! Fluthering with impunity!

zenvelo's avatar

I’d have known that if I was paying attention…..

@erichw1504 : I don’t get it… xD

erichw1504's avatar

@troubleinharlem I don’t get yours either, hence my response.

@erichw1504 : Oh, it goes like “Is your refrigerator running? Then you’d better go catch it!”

Obviously my practice didn’t read the memo about National Goof Off Day, ‘cause we’re really busy!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Dr_Dredd But you’re not so busy you couldn’t goof off and fluther for a minute. What team spirit!

wundayatta's avatar

If it’s national goof off day, and goofing off is what you do regularly, what do you do? If you’re goofing off from goofing off, does that mean you have to work? :-\

erichw1504's avatar

@wundayatta very good questions. I’ll answer them later…

Oh, okay. Now I feel better about being here instead of finishing up my essay about female characters in Greek theater. Thank goodness. :)

Facade's avatar

I’m going to goof off the best way I know how! Just need to pick up some papers
I’m also doing absolutely NO schoolwork today!
Oh, and showering. We haven’t had hot water (the water heater back fired) since Saturday…

erichw1504's avatar

@Facade I was wondering what that smell was…

Dr_Dredd's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Hey, never let it be said that I wouldn’t take one for the team! :-)

Now, please excuse me as I go fill out some useless paperwork.

Wow, National Goof-off Day AND my birthday! What a deal!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Why in the hell did you have to tell me that????? I was going to start painting the bedroom and now I can’t!!!!

erichw1504's avatar

@Skaggfacemutt Happy birthday!

@Dutchess_III Why do today what you can do tomorrow?

Dutchess_III's avatar

@Skaggfacemutt Yes! Happy birthday!
@erichw1504 Well…I pulled two pictures off the wall. Then, an hour later I got a hammer, which is sitting right next to me as we speak! I’m making some progress!

Skaggfacemutt's avatar

Thanks for the good wishes, @Dutchess_III !

Dutchess_III's avatar

You’re welcome @Skaggfacemutt!

OK…I’m standing up…..

Sunny2's avatar

So how is this different from any other day? If you get caught, you’re excused or forgiven?
Ah, the life of retirement.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Damn. I wish I knew the name of the guy who remodeled this house. I’d find him and punch him. It’s obviously a do-it-yourself-even-though-you-don’t-have-a-clue-but-you’re-a-guy-so-it-must-be-an-instinct job. Ten foot ceilings. Common sense would tell you to use freaking 4 X 10 pieces of drywall, run them around the room, mud and be done with it! But no. He uses 4 X 8 and laid them in sidewise, which only gives you 8 feet. So he needed to fill in 2 more feet. If you insist on doing it that way, then common sense would tell you you’d want to cut in that last two feet at the bottom….or perhaps at the top..BUT NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FREAKIN WALL. Seesh. All over the house we have these double seams cracking out. I’m working in the bedroom, having to cut a V shape into the seam then mud and tape. My arms hurt from putting that steady pressure on the knife. Moron.

So much for goofing off. Moron.
