Do's And Dont's Of the Government Shutdown

Here's everything you should and shouldn't do if you're affected by the government shutdown

  •  
    DO: Prank call your member of Congress. From classics like, "Is your refrigerator running?" or the more topically sarcastic, "Oh you answered the phone? Way to actually accomplish something!"

  •  
    DON'T: Start doing housework. That's just a dangerous precedent.

  •  
    DON'T: Watch daytime television. It exists for unemployable people, not people who are currently unemployed. There's a big difference.
  •  
    DO: Nap. Just go crazy and nap.

  •  
    DON'T: Hang out with your coworkers. They're weird. And Pete keeps on talking about "My Little Pony." He's 42 for crying out loud.

    DON'T: Go to your spouse's office. No good can come from meeting that one cute 22-year-old intern.

  •  
    DO: Read. At least memorize the names of a couple of books so you can tell people you read them during your time off.
