    office squids

    Source : https://www.urbandictionary.com/defi...749639#7749639

    Office Squid
    Someone who travels around an office by propelling themselves backward in an office chair instead of walking.
    ==================================

    Are there many office squids in the US?
    Can only higher ups do this act? If you do this in Korea, you will look very negligent in your working attitude.

    Don't take what you find at urbandictionary.com as representative of actual use.

    I've never heard that. I quite like it though!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I would think it might be a more efficient way of traveling short distances.

    I'll confess to having done this, although only to be funny. I didn't know it had a name.
