Work is a time-consuming affair, but it doesn't mean some people are devoting every waking hour to climbing up the next rung on the ladder of success.
In fact, most people have a few guilty pleasures and favorite ways to keep the pace of work from becoming too frenetic and frenzied. In a survey 952 Americans by Moet & Chandon, 22 percent said they'd be willing to play hooky from the office if it meant doing something fun this summer.
Others said they found ways of holding work at bay without taking illicit sick days. Twenty-one percent said they don't mind stretching their lunch hours a little, while 9 percent said they'd skip out of the office early to meet a friend for drinks.
And that's not to say that all those who do stay at work the full day always put forth a 110 percent effort. The survey found that 9 percent owned up to playing video games on the office PC or downloading music when they should be working.
