    I don't think I would get fired... mostly, I think I would just be humiliated to the point that I would be forced to quit. I took this job as temporary work hoping it would lead to a full time position, so I really don't want to blow it... it sucks being a "mature" grown up!

      my job just gave us back our internet access and i am kinda bummed about it. I work with immature idiots that get on youtube and watch videos of people having diarrhea in a hot tub. morons. this is the reason we lost our surfing privileges to begin with! or, then there are the people who look at sex toy websites. so very professional, if you are in that line of business, not so much if you are a nurse.
      My favorite type of vacation, a relaxing one!

        omg! Me too! We got this email at work today reminding us of the companies "computer usage policy" blah, blah, blah...

        The thing is, this email had been forwarded around from the IT director, to various managers etc. My direct mgr told me that the policy stated we couldn't use the computers/internet for ANYthing that wasn't work related. What the IT director actually said was that excessive downloads of music and video were causing problems - not people reading the news or checking the weather etc. and that any computer that had to be repaired/rebuilt due to excessive downloads and surfing would be reported to that person's manager and HR. So it's not really that they're montioring everything constantly, they're just telling people to tone it down. But it kinda pissed me off that the mgr in my dept made it sound like they were watching every site we went to and we couldn't even check our email etc. She seriously got onto me for checking my gmail today!!!

          We miss you, too! I've been meaning to ask ... how is the life of a brand new associate? Is it as bad as they claim? I'm starting to get a bit anxious! But, at least it sounds like you are getting home in time to eat with your FI ... my FI is really worried we're never going to see each other for the next 2 years! :)

          On the other hand, maybe I'll just PM you and ask for any advice! It's amazing what employers can pull up these days!!!
