    I am in exactly the same position! Take a walk, take a nap, read a book... My company was acquired and I am just biding my time until they let me go in a couple months. Until then, they want to pay me for sitting here "just in case". It sucks. I feel for you, and I concur. They should just let us stay home.

    If you get your work done in advance, and have vacation or personal time available, there shouldn't be a problem with taking time off.

    If you want to be innovative, can you use the time to do something useful at your work, such as organizing a better system of filing or processing information. Then you can add that to your resume that you initiated improvements on your own, or designed a new system that the company adopted.

    You can also offer to cross-train in other duties so you expand your work experience, and can even learn management skills.

    Some company's let people go home when there is not enough work, but don't expect to get paid.

    Heck, I have that problem almost everyday. So, I sit at my desk and get paid. Not so bad sometimes.

    It's nice to take the day off, but we all need the money.
