According to the Huffington Post, a soft ware developer fooled his company for months, figuring out a way to be paid to surf the internet all day.
The report says that he was discovered when the company did an audit of the employee’s work.
The employee found out he could outsource his entire job to china for only a fraction of his salary, “one fifth of his six-figure salary” to be exact.
After checking his web browsing history the company discovered that his day went like this:
“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”
It was then discovered that he managed to set up a connection between his computer, and the company that he was outsourcing his work to in China. The company put two and two together, and the employee was fired.
