Alt + Tab Syndrome (Are you an Alt + Taber?)

alt tab

I think that thumb and fore-finger are the two most used fingers on keyboard – especially of those who indulge in moonlighting or activities not intended to be carried out during office timings. Don’t you switch the screen to Outlook or some meaningful screen when you are playing games or updating resume or buying/selling shares online at office and someone passes by? You would have possibly planned what that ‘meaningful screen’ would be. The moment someone passes by, your fore-finger and thumb perform this impromptu activity! I wonder if fingers of such people grow muscles on them by doing this work out! Perhaps, after a while, the only keys that would work on his keyboard would be Alt and Tab:-). Is yours an Alt+Taber personality? Read on to find out…

I have observed this in almost all organizations and wonder why people work on things that they are not supposed to during office hours. You pass an aisle and you can hear the thumbs and fore-fingers working out instantly, the screens being switched and the folks pretending to wear a fake workaholic expression on face.
