I have a question regarding confession, and specifically, the sin of wasting time at work.
My question is this: I work a heavily project-based job. There are times when I’m unbelievably busy, and then there are times where I am waiting on other people, or between projects. If during these “down times,” I have nothing to do, am I sinning by talking with my coworkers, doing research online, etc?
I fully understand that if/when I have work that needs to be performed, my employer is owed my time and attention, but what about those in-between times, where there is… quite simply… nothing to do?
