There are some things you should never, ever do at the office: Clip your toenails, yell at your coworkers, and watch pornography. But maybe one day you have a toenail emergency and you're super discreet about it. Or maybe you just have a terrible, no good day and lose it (hopefully you apologize afterwards!). I guess those are forgivable. But viewing adult movies on the job? Oh no. Nonononono.
Let's use this unfortunate man as an example. There he was, minding his own business, viewing Internet porn in his own lonely little cubicle. Little did he know a whole office of people were watching him from the window of another building. One of those people took a snapshot of the porn watcher. And he tweeted it. And now it's All. Over. The Internet.
Viral semi-NSFW photo is below, in case you want to avoid it (or see it). It's kind of too blurry to really see anything in detail, FYI.
Doh! I wonder if Mr. Porn is now out of a job? I mean, it's probably not that hard to recognize the building if you work in the same one. And if you work on the same floor you might even recognize the furniture. The guy has his back to us, but you know how you can just tell who someone is by the back of their head, sometimes? And maybe he even has co-workers who have always suspected there was something kind of skeevy about him.
But speaking of co-workers, where are his? Maybe he watches porn all day because no one is there to stop him! Ew. Anyway, eventually the porn watcher realized he was being watched (which gets kind of meta, if you think about it), and he closed the blinds. But I bet he didn't budge from that browser!
I think we all learned something here. It's always a bad idea to watch porn at the office. You just never know who's watching you. And anyway, I think most companies have some sort of monitoring software that lets them know when you're watching a salamifest. or whatever. Your work deserves your full attention. If you're caught, you could get fired for sexual harassment (creating a hostile work environment). And most of all, it's just gross! If you found out someone at your office was always watching porn in his cubicle, you'd be creeped out by him, wouldn't you?
We all accidentally click on things every once in a while that we really, really wish we had not clicked on. But for the love of God, Do Not. Leave the naughty movies at home.
Have you ever caught a co-worker watching porn at the office?
