This made us think about what we’ve been caught doing on the clock. Here’s a few of our stories.
When Julie was reading traffic reports, one of the rules was No Facebook. The point was to keep an eye on traffic cameras. Sometimes a hawk would land on one of the cameras and all that could be seen was feathers, so she’d call in her coworkers to come look. Invariably, whenever her boss would come in, he would catch her on Facebook. One time, he caught her on Zappos looking at shoes.
John had radio at work that he’d listen to baseball games on. One of his coworkers dared him to drop kick the radio if the next batter scored a homerun. The next day, he was called in the HR office to talk about his “anger issues.” He had been caught on a security camera kicking the radio. Try as he could to explain it, his boss wouldn’t believe that he’d been put up to it as a joke.
Tony is rather unwilling to share many details of what he was busted doing. All he would say was that it was in a retirement home kitchen pantry with another person and a bag of flour.
