Meet Bob, Bob likes cat videos, he likes them so much that they become more important than his job. The Next Web wrote the story today on a worker from Verizon who outsourced his work to China so that he could watch cat videos, surf Ebay and read news on Reddit.
From the article:
The story goes a little something like this. A developer at a
US-based critical infrastructure company, referred to as “Bob,” was
caught last year outsourcing his work to China, paying someone else less
than one fifth of his six-figure salary to do his job. As a result, Bob
had a lot of time on his hands; in fact, during the investigation, his
browsing history revealed this was his typical work day:
- 9:00 a.m. – Arrive and surf Reddit for a couple of hours. Watch cat videos.
- 11:30 a.m. – Take lunch.
- 1:00 p.m. – Ebay time.
- 2:00 – ish p.m Facebook updates – LinkedIn.
- 4:30 p.m. – End of day update e-mail to management.
- 5:00 p.m. – Go home.
