The Scrunchie Is Making a Major Comeback

A lot of stuff from the ’90s made comebacks last year, from “DuckTales” to Zima.  And it doesn’t look like that trend is going to stop now that it’s 2018.

Because apparently, it’s fashionable again to put your hair in a SCRUNCHIE.

And, I suppose, that also means it’s fashionable again to wear one on your wrist when you don’t need it for your hair.

But, of course, there has to be a 2018 “late capitalism” twist to any ’90s comeback, and there is . . . people are making luxury ones, calling them “hair clouds,” and selling them online for well over $100.

The Top Ten Ways We Slack Off at Work

  According to a new survey, the average person spends 50 minutes a day slacking off at work.  42% of people said they do it because their job is too easy, and 34% said they just get bored.

This week was one of the biggest slack-off times of the year, because everyone’s still easing back into work after the holidays.  According to the survey, here are the ten most common ways we slack off . . .

1.  Browsing the Internet.

2.  Checking personal emails.

3.  Texting.

4.  Browsing social media.

5.  Leaving your desk to just walk around for a while.

6.  Online shopping.

7.  Dealing with errands, like paying bills online.

8.  Eating lunch at your desk.  (???)  Isn’t that kind of the OPPOSITE of slacking off?

9.  Daydreaming while you just stare blankly at your computer screen.

10.  Planned toilet breaks.  Other ways we slack off include doodling in meetings . . . hanging out in the office kitchen, or at the water cooler . . . and pretending to work when you’re actually playing an online game.
