Today, I found out that my coworker shared a laugh with the boss about setting the office desk on fire (which he actually did), while ten minutes later I was threatened with being fired because I made paper snowflakes and hung a few of them next to the computer. FML

I make paper snowflakes and tape them to my glass door. My kids like it.
Anyways, boredom can force you to do all kinds of childish things (snowflakes) or stupid things"(Setting fires)

ok seriously. You sat on the clock and made paper snowflakes? that is such a deliberate waste ofcompany time.
I'd imagine the person who set the desk on fire didn't do it on purpose, or atleast was able to make it seem not on purpose.

That depends on what they do. They may work a job where they can multitask while on hold or waiting for the PC to do something, or waiting for calls if they are in telecommunications. A lot of jobs could allow for this to be done on company time without affecting productivity.

We can't assume the OP was wasting company time any more than we can assume the fire setter wasn't.
