How to Not Work

This just in from our South Bay bureau chief:

“As it turns out, ‘Bob’ had simply outsourced his own job to a Chinese consulting firm,” Valentine wrote. “Bob spent less that one fifth of his six-figure salary for a Chinese firm to do his job for him.”

 

The worker “physically FedExed his RSA token to China so that the third-party contractor could log-in under his credentials during the workday.”

 

When the team looked at Bob’s Web history, the picture got a bit clearer. The worker – described as an “inoffensive and quiet” programmer in his mid-40s – spent much of his day on Reddit, eBay, Facebook, or watching cat videos.

Stuff like:

 

“The infidels are committing suicide by the hundreds on the gates of Baghdad… Be assured, Baghdad is safe, protected. Iraqis are heroes.”

 

And

 

“They tried to bring a small number of tanks and personnel carriers in through al-Durah but they were surrounded and most of their infidels had their throats cut.”

 

 

Read this article in that light:

Well Happy New Year everyone. My goddamn iPhone just crashed my last post so we will try again.

This year I hope to adhere to a more regular posting schedule. I hope to do at least two quality posts per week, one mid-week and one on the weekend, with occasional bits here and there.
