    Default Would you have got this person sacked?

    Someone I was talking to last night : said she went to see someone at lunch yesterday : at his desk in a large IB in docklands. They have no internet blocking. The chap was eating a sandwich : watching a film of someone in a riot being hit with baseball bats : then was set alight.

    She was shocked and complained : adding that she did not want to work with someone with that little moral standards.

    She was a bit upset as that person likely to be sacked.

    What would you have done?

    Probably nothing. Previous experience has taught me to STFU and collect the monthly pay check. However I think she was in the right and applaud her.

    I'd have told your friend to get a life. No offence.

    So this women never surfs the internet at work? I've seen this type of footage on BBC news, FFS.

    It was in his own time and not porn etc, so what is the problem. She should mind her own business. The women is more likey to get sacked as a trouble maker.

    Eh? What did she want to happen? She went out of her way to say she couldn't work with this person and then gets upset when she gets her way.

    Smells of hypocrisy IMO.

    Agree with what others have said, she should have just ignored it and gone about her day.

    In my view, this amounts to telling tales because someone did something you didn't like. I think most of us grow out of that at an early age, but it appears not in some cases.

    Very childish behaviour.

    Not really. It amounts to gross misuse of company resources, use of company resource to access material of an offensive and possibly illegal nature etc...The OP says this is material of someone being beaten and burnt to death, hardly CUK discussion board is it?

    Hope her CV is in order...

    The guy will get a slap on the wrist. maybe even a really good bollocking (as per the internal policy) Now everyone in the office knows she can't be trusted around their personal desk space. If she lasts a month I would be amazed...

    Stupid rookie mistake at a great time to be out of work...
