My friend slacks  off studing English

Shame on him! 🙂

It is common to slack off when we are close to our vacations. 🙂

That’s how I feel right now, Anderson! 🙂

I used to slack off in my work when I didn’t have anything to do.

I guess that’s a legitimate reason to slack off. 🙂

A friend of mine slacks off frequently. I usually slack off when I am tired or when the job is boring.

Same here, Mario. The best option is to handle these boring tasks right away and get them out of the way [tira-los do caminho], though.

Hi Tim My dentist is a real slacker. He has been working on my teeth since 2013.

Oh, my! He needs to stop slacking off with your teeth! 😀

My granddaughter slacks off when I ask her to put away her toys in the box.

Most grandkids do, Maria. 🙂

I slack off att work when I’m sleepy, but many workers always slack off when the boss leaves the office. We say in Portuguese: Quando o gato sai os ratos sobem na mesa!

Yes… When the cat’s away, the mice will play!

Procrastination happens when the worker slacks off at work.

Yes, it isn’t easy to motivate the workers, unfortunately.

I don’t know why, but I suspect that I have been slacking off lately at work. Maybe because the year is almost over. LOL

I kinda feel the same way, Cristiano. Maybe it’s the holiday spirit.

I slack off at work, when don’t have many students.

Does your dad know that?! 😀

I don’t work with my father…rs

Oh! That’s good! hahaha

My daughter is almost 5 years, she loves to play and to watch cartoons, but she slacks off everytime that I call her to take a shower or brush teeth.

5 year olds will do that! 🙂

In this case we might say she “drags her feet”. I’ll talk about this in a another mini-podcast.

Hi Tim

my personal budget is in the red, because I don’t have money to pay may bills.

Let’s hope you can get your finances in order in the New Year, Vicente! 

Hi Tim 

In this end of year many people slacked off in the work.

I know. It’s hard to concentrate on your work in the end of the year.

I’m a real slacker for these days because I’m on vacation!

Same here, Emerson! 🙂
