Should I work diligently at work, or do just enough work not to get fired?

Depends if you want to get ahead or not.
You mean you would risk getting fired in the process of finding out how little you can do without getting fired ? lol
Why are you so sure you can get "ahead" by working diligently? And yes, I would risk getting fired in the process of finding out how little I can do.
My thoughts are this:
Work Less......Paid More
lol that doesn't make sense.
I agree with work less, paid more. It has been my experience that the less I work, the more I am paid. Having been fired several times, I realize that firings usually occur due to personality conflicts, not incompetence. Keep on good terms with the boss, and you can goof off to your heart's content.
I would say that it depends on what your work is. For example if you are a fireman, work diligently; but if you are a defense attorney for criminals or something like that, then work just enough not to get fired.
So, if my work isn't important, than I should work less? Great! My work is meaningless.
Huh? Who told you that ?
So you don't get any money out of it ?
No one told me that. I've experience this. My naive younger self used to equate hard work with reward. Well, that's just not true.
I make more money now than ever. I also work less than ever.
Then how is your work meaningless ? You make a living out of it, don't you ?
I thought you were in school?
I just threatened my old bosses and they gave me raises all the time!
In the broad view of things, my work is meaningless, except for the pay.
Just threaten them and they will cough up your raise but I thought you
were in school.
