In this thread, we list things to do while on break/lunch at work! Since I work 10 hour shifts, I often use my phone to stay busy on breaks so I don't feel like I wasted it... Too much.

But here's my first few suggestions!

1! You know those lame ass games on your smartphone your mom plays? Try them! They can eat up your time in a amusing fashion! I like Lucky 7 on the App Store! I also like Infinity Blade 1(2 and 3 are bad), Jetpac Joyride, Joe Danger and some really cute kitten platformer!

2. Talk/flirt with people you have no interest in! One, it helps improve your social skills and it passes the time since EVERYONE loves talking with you. I normally pick the guys who obviously have the hots for me, but I don't feel the same way, I typically talk with these guys if I'm feeling social. Or I flirt and boost the ego of aging men too.

3. Talk about boys!... Okay, if you're a man, you probably think this is quite lame and you don't wanna do it, that's fine, but girls like talking about the men in the workplace, and they always have interesting pieces of information they blurt out.

"Yeah! And his girlfriend drowned! Lol!"

You: "Haha! What a- WAIT! WHAT?!"

Try it! Got anything you do to pass the time? Work can be less lame if we share ideas!

You: *Mumbles under breath...*

Huh? No job you say? Well!..... Yeah, guess you don't relate to us. xD Sorry!

It's the culture of the forum, you expect a few jabs from certain users. Everyone has them.

I normally play my PS Vita on my break. Keep in mind my break is like a 3 hour break I get once all my work is finished at 8:00 and I get off 11:00.

Few jobs are available to me at my current age, so I don't work a job as of yet. During school, however, we have an allotted period of time for lunch and I usually finish eating early. As a result, I spend lunch time talking with friends or playing my PS Vita like dragontackle.

When I was working over the summer I usually just text some friends or just browse the internet. My breaks weren't that long. I had a 15 minute break in the morning and afternoon and a 30 minute lunch. I guess it's important to note that I worked 10.5 hour days too.

I eat, play games on my phone, or just work through lunch.

(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ Blasphemy! Blasphemy, I say! Infinity Blade 2 was good!

Anyways, on my breaks that I get I mostly people watch. Some call me a creeper, but I don't sit on electrical wires ya' know!? (=w=")/

I also like to spend my time acting like I'm doing something important on my phone. I think it's starting to become a habit though. (x.X")

You mean work through break. It's illegal to work through lunch.

Depends on where you live. For example, it's not US law but it's a state law for some states. And if you're part of a union, then those laws don't apply either, only what your union contract says. And cities also have their own laws regarding this matter for states that don't have the law. It's a big mess but not necessarily illegal depending on where you live.

However, I would like to say, if you get a chance for a lunch break, it's probably wise to take some kind of a break instead of just working right through it. Unless you're like me and save the break until before the end of my shift and take a lunch then and go home once you're done with lunch (since we're not allowed to leave early). So in a way, I've "checked out" an hour early from work but don't leave until I'm allowed to.
