City Employee Gets Fired After Watching an Astonishing Amount of Porn at Work

A Baltimore city employee has been fired for watching an obscene amount of porn on his computer when he should have been working, a report from the Office of Inspector General revealed last week.

The employee, who city officials did not identify on the grounds of personnel confidentiality, was a maintenance supervisor at the Baltimore Department of Public Works. An anonymous complaint from the Office of Information Technology prompted investigators to install monitoring software on the employee’s work computer — what they discovered is almost legendary.

The monitoring software observed the employee over an 82-hour work period. The software revealed that out of those 82 hours, the employee spent 39 hours, nearly half of his time at work, watching porn. On one particular 8-hour workday, he spent 6 hours and 45 minutes watching porn.

The investigation also revealed that the employee, clearly immune to shame, was watching porn in full-screen mode. During this time, investigators believe that, “little to no work was being performed during the time that pornographic material was visible on the screen.”

For those 39 hours of watching porn at work, the employee “earned” a total of $1,166. He was subsequently suspended without pay in September and finally fired in January.

Allegedly, it wasn’t the porn he was watching that got him fired, but rather that the employee was spending so much time not working. Inspector General Rob Pearre Jr. explained:

“It would have been the same if he were watching sports on his computer for four out of eight hours a day.”

The report concluded that hypothetically, if this worker had watched the same amount of porn over the course of a 2000-hour work year with his salary, it would amount to being paid $28,400 to watch 951 hours of porn.

So. Much. Porn.
