One of the joys of employment are those inconsiderate communications from idle friends -- clever-but-stupid ramblings that bring mirth to your own "busy" day. As your friends become more employed/less clever, outsource these crucial distractions to The Bureau of Workplace Interruptions
Started by a New York artist, BWI's a free service dedicated to momentarily derailing your relentless productivity with beguiling diversions -- like the movie The Game, but unlikely to result in you waking up in a Mexican drain pipe. Creativity of the interruption depends on the creativity of the request, with results ranging from pointless narratives ("Then we went to Hooters. Then I made a wrong turn on the interstate and ended up in long term parking at the airport") to entreaties to aimlessly converse ("Have you ever seen the Star Trek that features a mariachi band?"). Just enter contact info, job details, and personal interests for yourself or an unsuspecting friend, and BWI will randomly deliver these hilarious inanities via phone, text, email, or snail mail -- the first letter you've gotten in years that didn't threaten to disconnect your cable
With the company just coming into grant funding, on-site-visits will become more feasible -- embarrassing distractions that could lead to mass unemployment, and the BWI running out of work to interrupt.
