Are you a goof off? Do you know someone who is a goof off? If you are a goof off, you are not serious about your work, or lazy, or more interested in playing than working. In this case, goof off is used as a noun.

     -She used to be a goof off in high school, but became a serious student when she go to college
     -Frank is such a goof off. He never finishes his work on time.

We can also use goof off as a verb and it has the same meaning. For example:

     -Angela got fired from her job because she goofed off all time and missed a lot of deadlines.
     -If you keep goofing off, you won’t get into a good university. Turn off the XBOX and go do your homework!
