The Boss Would Like A Word With You.

Rough drafts of the saying “If you have time to lean you have time to clean”:

“If you have time to sleep you have time to sweep.”

“If you have time to flop you have time to mop.”

“If you have time for relieving you have time for receiving.”

“If you have time to sit back you have time to get on track.”

“If you have time to rust you have time to dust.”

“If you have time to cavort you have time to sort.”

“If you have time to stare at the walls you have time to make some calls.”

“If you have time to recline you have time to get back on the line.”

“If you have time to be urbane you have time to train.”

“If you have time to engage in oratory you have time to do inventory.”

“If you have time to contemplate your life choices you have time to pay some invoices.”

“If you have time to look up the history of the soda jerk you have time to go and get back to work.”

“If you have time to buy tickets to the theater you have time to clean the break room refrigerator.”

“If you have time for leisure you have time to measure and yes I am going to pronounce it that way.”

“If you have time to plan your vacation you have time to finish some last minute projects before your vacation.”

“If you have time to carouse you have time to something something plows.”

“If you have time to stand around the water cooler you have time to go and get my watch a new battery at the jeweler.”

“If you have time to lounge you have time to scrounge. Up some work. Go scrounge up some work. Get busy before I dock your pay for laughing at me.”

“I’m going to be in my office playing Minesweeper. Look busy in case anyone comes in and thinks you’re a-sleeper.”

      Luckily for people around me I’ve never been a boss. I’d either be terrible at it because I’m so laid back and unwilling to tell people what to do or great at it because I’m so laid back and unwilling to tell people what to do.

    If you have time to stop and smell the greenery you have time to operate heavy machinery.

      Depending on the type of greenery you’re smelling operating heavy machinery should be avoided.

    If you have time, quit spending it on rhyme. (I’m a harsh taskmaster).

      Sometimes I think I need a harsh taskmaster to get me going.

      That is my favorite way of describing this. I always say I’ll procrastinate when I get around to it.

      It’s amazing how much time we spend figuring out how to spend our time.

    If you have time for reflection, you have time for an erection. (A building is what I meant, of course.)

      Of course. Construction workers never engage in vulgar humor.
