Do you have fun at work?
The deeper, underlying issue is whether having fun at work is productive which is why I'm doing a survey as I regard a fun, relaxed atmosphere (within reasonable limits) as helpful to the economy in the long run (I know that studies have been done on this but I want to hear YOUR opinion - please note that this thread stems from a discussion I had with my dentist yesterday).

To answer the question sometimes fun is had at work. Regardless of whether fun is had the hours go by very quickly and before i know it it's time to close up for the night.

I have tons of fun at work.
My afternoon job working with cattle on my farm is great. Next year it will be my only job.
My current day job sucks. I think this is day 18 with out a day off and dose not look like I will be getting one till late next week. Some how the machine I run is on the other side of the plant from the rest of my department. About half the time I decide to make the hike to the “lead person” I over hear my coworkers in my business. The part that I like the best is part of this stuff is said around our “lead” and sometimes it gets said around our boss but nothing gets said.
How much time I took off for some outpatient surgery.
How I was playing the “Dr. note game” when I came back from surgery with a restriction of 48 hours a week.
A miss-installed bolt from a different shift fell out and snapped a die-plate when I was running and how they would of caught it.
One of the best comments I heard was, “Why dose he think he needs so much time off; a women can give birth and come back to work the next week and not have any restrictions.” I responded with “I still have over 48 hours vacation I can use this year.”
The comment today that almost sent me off the deep end toady was “Why did he go to get stitches. He only got a couple it could not of been that bad. I would have just kept working.” This was based on an issue of my hand ~vs~ hand tool that happened last week.
I'm currently waiting on HR to follow up with my complaint.
I did have fun today when I typed and printed out a draft of my resignation letter. I printed it to the other side of the plant and did not put a name on it or pick it up.
In 64 more days I get 160 hours of vacation. Sometimes I think it's worth staying there for 64 more days for that going away present and some days I think it would be better to just let the door hit me where the good lord split me as I walk out the door.
Thanks for the rant time...
Yes I did change a few tinny details around in case someone reads this I work with.

I have enormous fun at work. Basically I just sit around all day and solve math problems, analyze word roots, and ponder on the relevancy of a 1960s government book.

Well, I wouldn't say I have fun at work, but I very much so enjoy my job. There are times at work where I have fun, but it's not like hanging out with buddies. I honestly don't think a job can be fun if your unproductive. I mean it might be enjoyable at first, but I would just be bored. I'm an auto-mechanic technician and I love my job. My boss is like a mentor, the other employees are good people, and I enjoy the challenge of diagnosing and fixing cars.

Do i have fun at work?
I play around with 40KV and 600amps all day, with the added bonus of 36,000lb forklift...... Ya i do have fun at work.
Although i would have more fun if i got to clamp up some of my coworkers to the 40kv and watch them squirm, but the average day works for me
