Make your Bosses Believe you're In Office.When You're Not

Used sparingly, these tactics will let you loaf around during office time without getting caught.

Work late everyday

Build a reputation of being a tireless worker and no one will dare question your commitment to the company.

Start sending some midnight emails. This sure shot sign of robotic dedication will make your bosses and colleagues think that you are…well, a robot. You will set new standards in commitment, and might even be requested to give pep talks to your team members. Plan ahead on the drivel you will fill their heads with. You certainly don’t want to tell them the real secret behind working late and 3 AM mails.

The secret tactic: Once you have written a bunch of messages, set email timers and Outlook will deliver them exactly when you want.

An iDea can change your life

While people at work think you're in front of your PC, You could be watching a movie. How? Send emails from your iPhone or Blackberry. While the ‘Sent from Blackberry/iPhone’ footer might give away your game, there is an effective tactic to counter this.

The secret tactic: Reconfigure your handheld to disable the auto-signature feature, so that your emails appear to come straight out of your desktop.

Manage your Instant Messenger

Turn your instant messenger into an alibi.
The (not so) secret tactic: Either disable your messenger’s ‘idle’ setting or change the status message to ‘Really busy, don’t disturb’ giving plausible reasons why you don’t have time to participate in petty chatter.

Set the Scene

Meeting a hot gal for coffee and more during work time and don’t want the folks at office to go sniffing around for you?

Secret Tactic: Swing by your office in the morning. Make your presence felt by greeting everyone, especially those you’re answerable to. Then turn on your PC, throw your jacket over your chair and place a semi filled cup of coffee on your desk. Creep out of your cubicle as inconspicuously as possible. For the rest of the day, the office will think you've just stepped out.
