Photo Of Man Watching Porn At Work Goes Viral

Photo of Guy Watching Porn at Work Goes Viral
Most people know that watching pornography from the office computer can get you fired -- which is probably why only 3 percent of employees admit to viewing porn at work. But when a Brisbane, Australia, worker was watching an X-rated video from his desktop computer, he thought that he was doing it in anonymity. He sat in his swivel chair, watching -- apparently unaware that he was being watched by amused employees working in a building across the street, reports The Telegraph.

When the employees began hooting and applauding, the office worker shut off his computer, but by then a Twitter user, @PenguinShepherd, had posted a photo of the porn-loving worker and given updates on his feed. "Yeah, he saw us all watching him towards the end of the day. We gave him round of applause, he closed his screen down...." tweeted PenguinShepherd, who identifies himself on Twitter as "JamesP," a Brisbane "geo," "diver" and "photographer."

Soon after, the photo went viral -- picked up by British tabloids, including The Sun and Daily Mail. Fortunately for this porn devotee, though, JamesP didn't identify the man's exact location in Brisbane, so his employer still might not figure out what he's been up to.

Do you really have to guess? The number of people looking at porn on their personal tablets and cell phones today is through the roof. Porn-at-work is as common as women wearing jewelry.

Lord you posters are a bunch of entitlement losers. He was paid to do a job, not surf the net or watch porn. What, you believe that work hours he is entitled to sit on his butt and do nothing like some welfare recipient? Say he works 90% of his day. You can be sure that if his company cut his pay by 10% to compensate he would be raising hell.

and you're presupposing in your drivel that he wasn't on his allotted break or that he wasn't working off the clock. You don't know whether he came in and hour early to work and worked off the clock like workers all over the world do just to get a project completed.

You're assuming a lot without knowing jack. How do you know that he isn't the highest revenue producer in his workgroup? For all you know, he might be the most efficient worker at the company generating 12% more actual "work" than his coworkers.

How many people take cigarette breaks? He's taking a porn break.

Maybe his grandfather owns a 52% stake in the corporation- you simply don't know... so close your hole.

the real retards are the voyeurs that posted it. Peeping Toms who are losers. The man was watching a video that he wanted, what is wrong with that. Too many nosey people should see how they would react if there privacy was infringed upon. !

Loss of privacy is a huge problem in our polictically correct society.

Yes, dishonesty rules with all the polically correct crap (that I have no part of) - so of course, one's privacy when watching porn while someone else is paying to work should never be invaded. :::::::rolls eyes::::::

The Voyuers watching him are worse than he is. Can't a person watch whatever they want on a computer without someone spying on them. They are invading his privacy, severely.

He can have all the privacy he wants - in his own home off a company clock. No one is "invading his privacy" when he is doing it openly on his job stiffing his employer for work he is NOT doing. Does anyone have any scruples anymore? What he watches may be his business, but WHERE he watches it is his employer's business since he's being paid to do a job - that doesn't begin with the word hand.
