You get paid $16 an hour to sit in an office 8hrs a day with an internet connected computer. All activity must be SFW. What do you do to pass the time?

  1. I would get a different job, that is remote working and uses a computer. Likely with cloud access to the work servers and systems.

    Then, I’d collect that $16/hr as gravy. A bonus. And I’d collect my salary for my actual remote job.

    Obviously I don’t tell my work about the $16/hr, that’s between me and mine. I do the job fully, get paid a full proper salary. Enjoy the gravy.

  2. Write on my novel and answer questions on Reddit. Maybe watch some Youtube videos. But really, $16/hour is an absolute shit salary where I live, so I wouldn’t be okay with performing any real work for this wage anyway.

  3. Browse LinkedIn looking for new job opportunities. The average yearly income of a full-time employee in the US is 56 grand, almost twice as much as the job you’re describing pays.

  4. I’ve taught myself skills to use to get better paying jobs, especially if you have access to expensive software like Autodesk or Adobe stuff. If not there’s free stuff like Blender and GIMP.

  5. If that’s the scenario, my job will probably require a computer, so… I’d be doing my job.

    And on my lunch break, be looking for a new job because 16 bucks an hour is not really a livable wage where I live.

  6. There are plenty of YT video essays that can take up my time lmao

    But does “SFW” mean “no porn” or does it mean “content must be PG13” (ie, no or minimal swearing, avoiding raunchy jokes, etc)—because I’d absolutely rewatch the Quinton Reviews Victorious series again, but idk if it would be considered “inappropriate for work”
