I try to be. It means I usually get done faster.

Yes, once I get started. It takes me a little bit in the morning to gear up/wake up but once I'm on a roll I'm tenacious at seeing it through. I usually finish all my task by the end of the day. I'm the type of person who has to accomplish something everyday to make life worthwhile. My weak point are obstacles. I tend to lose my temper on days that I've not gotten enough sleep when I come upon too many obstacles. I don't take breaks either, not like some people I work with who are always on a break and get away with it. I guess everyone is so used to me always being there that if I'm not or am seen doing nothing they assume I'm wasting time. Oh well I'd rather be busy than bored.

I can groom a lemur in less time than anyone else west of the Mississippi.

Only when I have to be. Unfortunately, I usually have to be.

Not when there's so many comments to read on the message boards...I am so easily distracted at times!

Good answer, Cassie! I will be an efficient hard worker if I respect my employer.

I find it humorous that the responders from Missouri state that they are inefficient while the Lawrence workers claim efficiency. Hmmm. :)

I dunno. Better send a group of professors and students at Kansas University with their laptop computers over to my office to check...

I'm incredibly effective at my job. How else could I have so much free time to screw around??

Kudos to Sigmund for using the word, "effective." He took the word right out of my keyboard.

"It depends how much I'm getting paid."That attitude will ensure that you'll never get paid much. The "Pay me first, then I'll work hard" attitude.

OldEnuf2BYurDad (Anonymous) says:"It depends how much I'm getting paid."That attitude will ensure that you'll never get paid much. The "Pay me first, then I'll work hard" attitude.But what else would you expect from someone who looks to be of the age of someone in "Generation Me?"
