Time spent at work, whilst working in an office job, that is not actually spent working, but merely invested into giving the powers that be the illusion that you are putting in effort beyond the call of duty. This is done in order to further your career and make yourself seem more valuable than others, particulalry in a large anonymous office.
I'm only contracted to work 0900 to 17:30, but I usually arrive about 0830 and go home about 19:00. This way my boss thinks I am the hardest working person at my level. It's not fun and it sure ain't right, but the face time will pay dividends later on.
