There are a lot of reasons to be an office ninja. None more famous than to avoid being assigned to a working party. For those of you that don't know what a working party is, it's not a party you have at work. It's the opposite.

Office Ninja

There are a few steps involved in becoming an office ninja. Most of us have learned them from our time in the military. With a little practice and this little how-to, you might also be able to pull off some office ninja skills. There is an acronym in the military for how we go about training to eventually become office ninjas, S.K.A.T.E. If you're still in the military you can be a skate ninja, once you go civilian you become an office ninja. They are the same thing, just in different operational environments. It's like the difference between a unit that specializes in jungle warfare versus a unit trained for the artic, same missions different environments.

Office Ninja

The "S" stands for "Stay low," when you're easily seen against the horizon, you'll definitely get seen and singled out for extra work. The "K" stands for "Keep alert," if you're not aware of your surroundings, you can be snuck up on and assigned extra work. The "A" represents the tactic of, "Avoid detection," loud fast moving things tend to draw attention, try not to make any sudden movements or noise. The "T" should be pretty obvious, if you're already busy working on something important, you can't be pulled away, so "Take your time." The last letter "E" should be easy to execute if you've followed every other letter up till now, "Evade capture."

Office Ninja

If you've done the entire "S.K.A.T.E" protocol then you're well on your way to being an office or skate ninja. Unfortunately for our ninja, he didn't stay alert and realize he wasn't in the clear yet. Catch more Grunt Style Funny Shorts here!
