How to Not Work

18 01 2013

This just in from our South Bay bureau chief:,2817,2414357,00.asp


“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.
