The art of acting like your being productive at work when you're really doing nothing at all.

Float or Floating, is the term used when you see co-workers taking twice sometimes three times as long to do a daily task.

The act of floating is greatly increased on Fridays, when everyone is caught up with weekly duties and need to burn time.

Floating does not only have to be "looking productive", for example it can also be taking 20 minutes to use the bathroom, multiple trips to the drinking fountain and even excessive chain smoking.
Not much, ya know, just floating around at work waiting to get off
