    Welcome to the real world.

    Where everyone is just a sack of shit that actually cares enough to write you up for leaving your trashcans on the side of the house when you've been able to leave them out in front of the porch for the last 10 fucking years.

    I hope you've learned a valuable lesson. I know I have.

    And why do you think I was reinstated? If they didnt gave a fuck I would be fired.

    My OP is a warning. Stop being jerks everybody.

    I used to do a lot of surfing the internet during my internship, simply because they had little to no work for me, even if I kept asking if there was anything I could do. Got caught once in my 2 months of internship, the only thing my boss said was ''get back to work'', which I never had >.<

    Still easily passed my internship afterwards, and they were all happy I was there to help :P. Even my boss praised me

    I despise slackers. Most people only work 9-5 and that leaves you ALL evening to do whatever the fuck you want. Do it then...

    i think you missed the entire point of the internet

    it's where you go to hear that 2 + 2 = 4 is technically wrong. I don't know how it's wrong, I don't care how it's wrong. But I bet you that it is. In some way or another.

    Should have been working and not browsing. It's your own damned fault.

    The 90% of you bitching at the OP for a misleading title? Before I even read the post I knew what he was talking about. The title isn't misleading you all just aren't very bright.

    1. He had downtime (eg. nothing to do).

    2. He surfed the web.

    3. He got suspended.

    Yeah, that REALLY makes sense lmao.

    But its probably because there was something do to, you just didn't look hard enough. If that's not the case, your managers/company is a failure in my book.

    He at no point said he was blaming the internet and takes responsibility for what he did. He was throwing out a warning from his own personal experience.

    I thought you would have a story about how they dug up naked pictures of you or something from the internet, slacking off isn't the internet's fault.

    Internet is something new for the managers. This is something they can control because they have access to your log. For them, when you're on Internet, you steal time from the company. If I was just doing nothing and talking with the other guys, I would not be suspended.

    I just want to tell you that everybody must be careful with Internet at work. In the last months, I've been browsing a lot of forums at work because we had a lot of downtime. I was reading MMO Champion, Reddit, Gw2 Guru, etc...

    Then, I had a meeting with my managers. I got suspended for 5 days and I can tell you that they were the worst days of my life. I realised that if I lose my job, I lose everything. I lose my car, I lose my appartment, I lose everything. And there is a high chance that I go bankrupt because when you're fired because of misconduct, you don't have access to unemployment benefits and it's harder to find a new job.

    I've been reinstated today but I had to work really hard. Being suspended is not fun.

    I guess it's a warning for all of you guys.

    cheers
    So... this just in, slacking off at work will get you in hot water?

    3. He got suspended. - Always know the company policy regarding internet. There are companies that flat out prohibit browsing.

    Yeah, that REALLY makes sense lmao. - Yeah, it actually does.
    But seriously, most places, even if they have a policy against it, will be a little lax if you ask for more work and, on finding none, ask permission to surf the web. I've had two jobs that were fine with me surfing the web if I'd finished my assigned work. I've also had a job where if you finished your work, you were expected to ask for more.

    Same stupidity that's behind all this "Uh this game ruined my life!" and that sort of jibberish.
