Default How do I tell my boss I don't have enough work at the office & I'm going CRAZY?

It's been 3 months since I started working as an admin assistant. My boss joined the organization just a few months before me. Although when I began i felt I was having to endure an information overload with all the trainings I had to attend, it suddenly slowed down to a snail's pace. And now 3 months later, I can honestly say that I have enough work to fill half an hour out of the eight hours. I can't take it ANYMORE. I would have resigned if it weren't for the decent salary and excellent benefits. It guess many reading this will think I'm making this up, but i am starting to go crazy staring at my watch waiting for the hours to pass. How do I tell him to give me more work without making him feel he is bad at delegating. His job is meeting donors to raise funds for scholarships so he is busy. I organize his travel and work on his reimbursement claims when he returns from trips across the country, but that is just not enough to keep me busy. HELP me please .. any advice! All my husband says is 'don't make him look bad by telling others in the office' and I don't, but I do have to tell someone.

Instead of telling him that you "don't have enough work", why not just ask him if there's anything "extra you could be doing for him around the office in your spare time"? Same question, just different phrasing.

Start writing a book or something. Are you kidding me?!?! i'd kill to have this happen to me at my job! You are given a paycheck a oodles of free time at your computer. Start being a paid blogger or work on a personal project. or do some online tutorials to learn how to do something you have always wanted to do. Just keep your mouth shut and enjoy this gift from god. Just don't let it go to waste.
