Want to keep your job? Don’t do this if you’re bored at work…

Thumbnail image for englishwig.gifSome folks — not you and me, but some folks — can watch porn at work and not get in trouble; they work in the porn industry.

When you’re an employee of the courts — a courtroom clerk, to be precise — it’s frowned upon. 

Oh, you’ll never guess what happens next. Well, maybe you can. See how right you are after the jump. Fair warning, however, this is one my less tasteful posts. And that’s saying something…

Then again, I don’t make this stuff up; I just report it. So don’t shoot the messenger, yo.

54-year-old Londoner, Debasish Majumder, is not the model employee. A courtroom clerk, he got caught watching porn during a rape trial. 

Kerry McQueeney at the Daily Mail reports here that the judge caught Mr. Majumder red-handed. His excuse? He was “bored”. And apparently, it’s not the first time that Mr. Majumder needed a courtroom distraction:

He said that he watched a lot of internet porn, he said that at work there were moments in his day that were boring and he would surf the net not to get access to sites but to get the titles of sites to use on his home computer and normally sites were blocked.

He said that nobody in the court would be able to see what he was looking at on his screen apart from the judge and the judge would not be able to read the names as the print was too small.

He said he only looked at porn if the case was boring and did so once or twice a week. He had been carrying out this type of behaviour since the December of the previous year.

And in other more-tasteful employment news…
