To loaf or goof around on the job. Supposedly an old union term describing laborers (or more specifically, bricklayers) who were going so slow, it was as if each brick were made of solid gold. One can alse be referred to as a "goldbricker".
Dude, I spent all day at work goldbricking - surfing the web, making long distance phone calls - basically just picking my ass.

Sitting around and looking good, but doing nothing.

Always applied to lazy people, but best addressed to those who pretend to be working in order to look industrious, and avoid punishment or harder jobs; also, for those who think they are attractive and therefore shouldn't have to work.
1. "That counter is clean, so don't pretend to wipe it -- you're just goldbricking so you can stand around and chit-chat."

2. "Don't stand there goldbricking; you're not too cute to wash your own damn dishes."

Also: "I just asked myself, 'Where would I go if I was goldbricking?' -- and there you were." -- Sgt. Mary Gumm, from Friday, by Robert A. Heinlein.

One who is a practicing goldbricker; a cheap substitute; a fake; a poser. One who pretends to be something that they are not.
". . .get your phony goldbricking ass out of my quiet beach community." -Malibu Chief (also from "The Big Lebowsky" 1998)
