Time Waster #2 -- Dunder Mifflin edition

A number of years ago, I remember my client (a Fortune 500 company) was convinced the Internet would create a paperless work world. They believed this so much they began limiting the number of file cabinets each employee could have, as no paper means no need for files. Clearly their individually-wrapped processed cheese slices were turning their brains into mush.

Luckily this paperless world never came to be. For if it had, our following Time Waster would cease to exist and I'd have to come up with something else to write about. Try it out and save your job.
"Shuffling papers around my desk every time I hear my boss fidget in his chair. I also make sure to 'walk around the office' to retrieve a 'lost paper' every 30.2 minutes. I'm also the master of mouse-clicking."
If you have tips or ideas, please submit them and share with your fellow cogs. They'll appreciate the help.
