What’s goof off?

Sometimes we want to spend some time doing nothing. There is no problem about it, right?

Do you know what goof off is? 

Read some definitions I have found on other websites:


(v.) To slack off by wasting time idly, sometimes through electronic means like video games, or through alcohol, doing absolutely nothing, or sleeping excessively. To goof off is to pass the time through the most unproductive means possible. (See here)

(North American English, informal) to spend your time doing nothing, especially when you should be working. (See here)

Read some examples:

You’d better not let the boss catch you goofing off! (See here)

I completely goofed off in college, devoting my life to slime volleyball, Soul Calibur 3, and ultimate frisbee instead of academics. Now I'm a level 3 barbarian living in a shack by a tucked away creek in Intercourse, Pennsylvania. It was totally worth it.

I totally goofed off. It's three in the morning and I'm still reading.

To goof off is to live life to the fullest.

Now that you know what goof off is, it is time to go back to work, right?
See you around!
