We all have our tricks for looking busy in the workplace to get through those slower days without anyone getting on your back. Here are ours! No, not here. In the episode. Press “Play” and listen to it. Okay, fine, you want a teaser? Full on body surgery. Make yourself look like Howard from Accounts Receivable. You get into a Face-Off situation, no one knows whats going on, that’s bound to eat up like an hour at least. However long it takes them to ask you something only Howard would know. I’ve never seen Face-Off.

Rank #12: Episode 100: How to Fill the Down-Time Capsule

Podcast cover

“East High is a place where teachers encouraged us to break the status quo and define ourselves as we choose. Where a jock can cook up a mean crème brûlée, and a brainiac can break it down on the dance floor. It’s a place where one person, if it’s the right person, changes us all. East High is having friends we’ll keep for the rest of our lives, and that means we really are ‘all in this together.’ Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat!” -Troy Bolton, High School Musical 3
