Something that separates you from the norm of lazy assholes. It is a task
you must do that supposedly sticks
to a fixed schedule
when really it doesn't, and keeps you from communicating with
any friends for long periods of time.
It also provides a solution to the awkwardness when someone stalking you wishes
to call you, because you can't pick up your cell phone.
"Why'd you call
me so much? I was at work."
"Well, did you wanna go to dinner tomorrow? We co--"
"I can't. I work. You know, that thing I was doing when you called me repeatedly
and I didn't answer?"
