Yeah, I had a rather interesting shift at work tonight. I work at an electronics retail store, and I was talking to a customer about cell phones. We were on the subject of AT&T, and he eventually asked if I've had any experience with the iPhone. I told him I own one so he asked if he could take a look at it. I said "sure, no problem" then handed him my phone. He tinkered around with it for a second, then opened up Safari. After a moment he just says, "Uh, what the hell is this?" With a rather puzzled look on my face I asked him what was up, he then showed me the open site in the browser. I had totally forgotten to back out of the "What is your sexual fantasy with the user above?" thread, which I was browsing through earlier in my down-time. Now as if I'm not sweating enough as it is, my manager happened to be right there and said, "What's what? Let me see that." He took one glance through it then just commanded, "You. Back office. Now." On my long trek to the back room I could hear him apologizing to the customer. From what I heard, the customer seemed to be pretty cool about it, but I still had to deal with my manager. I sat in the back for what felt like an eternity, just waiting for my manager to come in and chew me out.

He finally came in and asked me what the hell I was looking at. I told him it was just a public message board for guitar players, and that sometimes there are questionable topics. That happened to be one of the questionable ones. I then told him I was extremely sorry and I knew I shouldn't have been browsing the web at work, even when I'm doing absolutely nothing. He then informed me that he would have fired me on the spot if the customer hadn't have shrugged it off, and if this hadn't have been my first real slip up. I then got up and went to apologize to the customer I had been talking to. He just said, "It's alright, but man, just watch what you're doing on your phone. That's pretty messed up..." I shook his hand then he promptly walked out of the store.

Even though no harm was really done, I still feel like a total jackass. Needless to say, I won't be browsing UG any more while at work. It's Bejeweled from now on...

and yeah, I know it's all my fault, but I'm going to go ahead and blame all of you to make me feel better about myself.

One time I was looking at a thread pertaining to moving brown in public bathrooms on my school's workstation (LAN), and the teacher saw it through remote access and closed my account from his computer...

Awkward.

Ah that is harsh, I bet you were crapping bricks on the way to the office, I know I would be. Bad luck man.

Quote by CowboyUp
...why?


"You. Back office. Now." Really isn't the greatest thing for your boss to say to you right in front of a customer. There are good bosses, and there are bad bosses. This particular one sounds like a douche.

Yeah, I'm glad I wasn't browsing 4chan or anything. THAT would have sucked...

your boss is a tool.


He's pretty cool most of the time. He's been up for promotion for a while now so he's just hyper-sensitive about little things. He actually was less pissed than I thought he'd be though, thankfully.

I hate how crafty teachers can be with networked computers. In my computer repair class the instructor seemed to always know when I was playing Solitaire.

At least it wasn't the Mike H. thread. He'd still be sitting there reading it. xD

Yea, they're bastards.

I got freaked out, because the remote access he has allows him to take control of my computer. So I was reading the thread, and all of a sudden I see the mouse pointer move by itself and closes the browser window. I almost moved brown right there...

No. Everybody dies. And one day, given that your relationship doesn't crash and burn like so many do, one of you will end up deep in sorrow while watching the other one die.

I agree with that as well but the manager should be focusing on why he was browsing at work not what he was looking at...
#35
HAHA you deserve some sort of Pit award.

I have never gone in that thread though... I'm kinda new ( had an inactive account for a while ) and rather nervous of what I might find...
#36
I dont get it... it want your fault! the ****ing guy opened your stuff...
Something similar happened to me when i got my blackberry... but it WAS porn haha. and it happened to be a girl...my best friend's sister.

Bosses/managers are pricks man! one time my boss wanted me to apologize to a drunk old man because i didnt put onion in his philly cheese stake (i work at a deli). I did say im sorry, gave him his money back bc he didnt want to wait for another one, and when my boss found out about it a week later! he wanted me to apologize to him again. wtf you want me to do it on one knee too? gtfo

And that wouldn't have really been a problem either, but it was because the customer saw it. That got the whole ball rolling.

I know but they're making him explain why he was looking at that certain subject like he's the daddy to a 5 year old employee. If it was something else like news events or some**** like that everything woulda been fine...

Of course it would have. Everything is about the customer, and if he opens it up to find anything at ALL that is inappropriate to the CUSTOMER, then things get scary.
