I'm in Drexel's co-op program, so I began my first programming job this Monday. The first day was fine. After filling out paperwork for HR, I met with my supervisor, and he gave me an assignment. He was available that whole day for questions.
Early Tuesday morning, I completed my project, and I wanted to let him know, but I couldn't find him, so I sent him an e-mail. Not having anything else to do, I surfed the Web and played Minesweeper a bit. When he dropped by my cubicle late that afternoon, he sternly informed me that "we don't play games here" and that surfing the Web is only allowed during lunch hour. He spent a minute or two looking at the output of my program and said that the output looked like it might be correct and that he'd find something for me to do.
I neither heard from him anymore that day, nor yesterday save an exchange of hellos in the hallway. Had I not been on my way to the coffee pot at that exact moment, I wouldn't have seen all that day. I haven't seen him at all today.
I have no idea what to do. I'm not supposed to be visiting Web sites or playing games, but I've nothing else to do. I've been spending most of my time hanging out here at cprog since I figure I could at least make a case for why I should be allowed here.
I'm losing my frakking mind. I can't take the boredom. All of yesterday I just sat in this cubicle for eight hours doing nothing, and the same is turning out to be true of today. Sure, I'm getting paid for my time, but that's not nearly as soothing a thought as it should be.
What would you do?
