Fake news alert

Quoth "Al's Morning Meeting":

Two Hours of Slacking Per Day
According to a new survey by America Online and Salary.com:
The average worker admits to frittering away 2.09 hours per eight-hour workday, not including lunch and scheduled break time.

Let's not fall for this one again. It isn't "new" (salary.com got a bunch of news orgs to bite on the same bogus data last year; scroll down a bit here for the July '05 screed), and in no meaningful sense is it a "survey."

I'll admit to frittering 2.08 hours of my day, but 2.09?! I won't cop to that.

That's 17 seconds out of your next paycheck. The All-Seeing Eye cannot be deceived.
