Top Ten Things We Waste Our Time Doing

The Top Ten Things We Waste Our Time Doing

1 Watching TV

Hours. But worth it! - Britgirl

Especially if your watching Les Mis - ArpstaAmy333

It's not a waste of time if your watching the walking dead

I don't have a television. I read.

2 Arguing

It really is a waste of time people get into argument all over something really really stupid and yet neither one is willing to back down and it just goes on and on and on for a ridicules amount of time. - egnomac

Arguing is usually a means of trying to get someone else to change their mind and to prove we are right. This is truly a waste of time.

Yet that's the beauty of debating over certain topics people will thrive in maturity rebuttal battle while others just can't win the argument, and refuse to be sophisticated statement. - htoutlaws2012

Spending countless hours of your lives yelling at each other because you have a problem basically wastes even more time.

3 Using the Internet

This is one I do WAY too much. - beatles

Using the internet isn't a waste of time. You can learn new things. Games actually help develop your brain and if its online you can talk to your friends or find new friends

It's only a waste of time if you should be doing something else instead. For example going to the gym, or having an actually conversation with a loved one.

Use it to your own accord because things can turn on you making decisions you must be cautions of judgement day. - htoutlaws2012

4 Queuing

Like waiting in an organized formation until it is gone?

This should be first

Okay were in the queue waiting on your... mark? - htoutlaws2012

5 Travelling

Going airport to airport does not seem fun if you do it on a regular basis. - htoutlaws2012

6 Looking at Top Ten Lists

This should be everybody that's why you made an account or your visiting the site at this rate browsing through a list you come across all fascinated whether you love or loath it. - htoutlaws2012

Like I said before, are you TRYING to get people to leave this website?'s what I'm doing right now: 00:17 hrs on 20 / 9 / 13 so yes, probably wasting way too much time on this.

I do it almost everyday its really hard to break the habit. - egnomac

7 Playing Video Games

Fortnite is a waste of time and money. Go buy any Nintendo published game instead, even the mobile games.

Well if you play too much, then yes. If you ONLY play Fortnite. My annoying neighbor is SO addicted to Fortnite and keeps nagging my brother to play it. My neighbor plays so much that he gets grounded from it. Once in February, he got grounded from it. He got unbanned from it this month in May and got grounded again. He got grounded from it until the SUMMER. SHREKT! But he still sometimes sneaks up his computer and secretly plays it.

It is NOT a waste of time in the slightest. People enjoy doing it. Its like any other thing you like to keep you entertained. This is just your way, whats the point in reading books? "Its helps your language and so u can learn from it. Learn new words" Welp. Play an online one and talk to new people who knows different words! -sarcasm- and video games do help the mind

I know the type of person. Having something better to do with their time, but they spend hours trying to get through a level, and hours more talking nonsense about it. Live, instead. - PositronWildhawk

8 Going to the Doctor

Well I suppose If a helicopter crashed on top of your car, I should imagine you'd need more than a doctor! I'm talking about waiting mindless hours for a routine check-up, only to be told what you already knew; that you have a cough! Waste of bloody time! - Britgirl

Literally wait hours, and hours to get in, and finally as we get in some visits may take longer than usual. - htoutlaws2012

Well...necessary if a helicopter crashed on top of your car; wasting time, is it? Nothing important involved, just your life. - PositronWildhawk

It's not a waste of time. If you have Ebola than you don't wanna stay home

9 Staying Awake

Yes, as an insomniac I often think that if I can't sleep, I should be doing something to keep me occupied. Problem is that when I do this, I almost drop dead the next day. - PositronWildhawk

Awe I feel many users are under the influence of insomniac spell where we can't sleep, and I see that a lot lately sometimes its best to take a L. ''In the midst of midnight at hand go to bed so you fight to stay alive.'' - htoutlaws2012

Not my fault. - Ananya

I am an insomniac E.e and I want to sleep E.e but I can't E.e and I have school! Gawd

10 Sleeping

The opposite of the last one ironically enough, and to be fair everybody living at this rate need there sleep as time evolves passes by waking up anew day of either excitement or boredom depending on the season, or significance. - htoutlaws2012

That all depends who you're sleeping with, doesn't it? - Barry2013

It's not a waste, it's a need. If you get nine nights in a row without a good sleep, you can die

Well you kind of need sleep... it's just as important as water...
