The Protestant Work Ethic

It's a hangover from my childhood that I feel uncomfortable doing nothing when people around me are working. It's not so much that I feel I ought to be working as that I'm afraid of being judged- and shouted at- if I'm seen to be slacking. I don't suffer- except in this most superficial way- from the protestant work ethic and I have two ways of dealing with the discomfort; one is to find some silly little job that will make me appear to be busy and the other is to run away and hide.
