I'm not allowed to come on here during the day anymore

    My boss had a quiet word with me about my internet usage at work. It seems that I was on tinternet for 14hours during the month of November. Oops :rolleyes:

    Ok so I am not exactly a prolific poster but I am going to have to curtail my activities a bit :eek:

    14 hours seems like a fairly modest amount to me; after all, we have to do something to pass the time while serving the daily sentence, don't we?

    Perhaps a new job is called for? In the public sector, maybe?

    That's a bit over half an hour a day.

    Me too, though I jumped (IT policy came out and specified no 'chat' sites at all) before I was pushed, so to speak...

    Quite annoying as I log on sometimes in the evening to catch the tail of many interesting threads....
     
  5. I don't do much surfing at work these days as IT are having a bit of a crackdown at the moment. This is mainly to some bright spark who had somehow managed to bypass the corporate IT firewall and was downloading hardcore p0rn on to an external drive attached to his work PC. Needless to say he was sacked

    What the **** are you going to do then? There's only so much masturbation that you can indulge in in one day.
     
  7. I'm going to sit at home and buff my (cycle) helmet:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:;)

    If I had 14 hours per month on t'internet I would no longer be working in the public sector, there would be nothing quiet about the word had with me :eek:

    We had someone once who hit 300 porn sites in 4 hours.

    When the report came in I nearly fell off my chair. Luckily I knew him and I knew what he'd done. In a bored moment on the nightshift he'd thought of every dirty word he could think of and typed it into google to see what came up. He didn't go in to any of them but the report didn't distinguish.

    It took some fast talking and detailed report analysis to managment and then in turn to their French masters to keep him in his job and just get him off with a warning.

    In a quiet moment I gave him a slap around the back of the head - fool!

    The generally accepted amount of time is 10 hours per month. That's about 25 minutes a day. Not much really.

    We've got broadband at home now - I must be 200% more productive at work! Luckily it coincided with a new workflow management course, so I can attribute it to that!
     
  13. Blimey. I probably spend about two hours a night on the internet at work, albeit after everyone else has gone home and I've finished for the day.

    Me too. People have been formally disciplined and sacked for surfing and "inappropriate" use of the internet at my workplace. One temp apparently used to download stuff from i tunes and go to porn sites. He was dispatched pretty quickly when discovered. To look at him you wouldn't have thought it about him either.....
    I haven't got the time for recreational use of the net at work anyway and in my lunchtimes I prefer to do other things - when I manage to get a break at all. :tongue:
