For example, the other day, I was working at a local sandwich shop, and I realized that there was something wrong with my straw. Rather than inspect my straw (because that would take time and effort, and I am lazy), I continued to drink out of it and just periodically changed my drinking methods. At some point, it became clear that there was a hole in the straw about an inch from the top. At first, I just drank with my finger covering the hole, but then the hole got bigger. At this point, I *could* have gone up to the counter to get a new straw, but that probably would have taken at least a minute and a half, maybe even TWO minutes, and it would have required getting up (which I obviously was not going to do), so instead, I decided that the better course of action would just be to put the straw so far into my mouth that any liquid that escaped through the huge hole still ended up in my mouth. And I probably looked ridiculous, and yeah, it was a little uncomfortable, but you know, that's a minute and a half that I spent working instead of straw-fetching. Though in retrospect, it just now occurred to me that I could have taken the lid off my drink and not worried about the straw at all. The common sense, 'tis obviously not my strong point.
Another thing I'm really lazy about (which is going to sound really, profoundly strange)- going to the bathroom. In undergrad, when the bathroom was located way down the hallway, I'd always procrastinate about going until I really, really had to go, and then I'd sprint down the hallway full-speed. I bet I saved at least five minutes a day (if not more!) through sheer I-don't-want-to-walk-all-the-way-down-th
Also, cooking. My roommate and I cook dinner together once a week, but besides that, I tend to be a "eat it only if it can be made in under three minutes" kind of girl. I'm also kind of scared of ovens, but that's totally beside the point.
Let's see... what else... 95% of the time, I'm WAY too lazy to be one of those girls who spends any amount of time on makeup. Lip gloss is doable, because I can apply it while walking if doing so strikes my fancy. I also choose to let my hair dry naturally and wear it curly instead of blow drying it straight (which is HOURS of saved time right there). On most days, it takes me approximately ten minutes to get ready in the morning, which means I get to sleep later than I otherwise would, and that means that I can stay up later at night, and that's when I get things done.
I've heard it said that you can also get extra time out of your day by cutting down on the amount of time spent on LOLcats, Go Fug Yourself, or the Blue Boards, but I vastly prefer my method of time-crunching. Even if I do sometimes end up drinking out of truly dysfunctional straws.
