GN Netcom GN9120 Wireless Headset Bundle

by Wootbot

Heh, heh, heh. If these suckers think they can get an honest days’ work out of me, they’re sadly mistaken. I’ve got shirking down to an art, or a science, or a blend of art and science that I call “artence”. And the GN Netcom Wireless Headset Bundle lets me take my game to a whole new level of slackiness.

Sure, it’s got some great features, if you’re planning to use it to get actual work done. The GN9120 headset has an operating range of up to 300 feet. Its encryption and frequency-hopping capability keeps your conversations secure, and it allows up to three other headsets to join in on conference calls. I imagine the noise-cancelling mic and 8-hour talk time could conceivably come in handy for the workaholic. What’s more, the GN1000 Remote Handset Lifter physically lifts the phone receiver off of the hook, so I can answer my desk phone from almost anywhere in the office. That is, when I actually bother to answer my phone.

But all that is for people with crippling defects like “integrity” and “a work ethic”. Personally, I’ve found that the headset is the ideal prop for looking busy, no matter how I’m wasting company time. Reading the paper in the break room? Working on my spec script for Two and A Half Men? Having some quality “me time” in the stairwell? If somebody happens by, all I have to do is say something like “Dammit, Bennett, I’ve told you over and over that those terms are unacceptable” or “Just calling to check in, touch base, and follow up” and presto! Get me – I’m “working”! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a Sudoku puzzle to finish before my lunch break. A shirker’s work is never done.
