An unidentified US software developer known only as Bob has recently been fired from his six figure job. The reason? Well he did surf the internet all day and watch cat videos. Who does not love a great cat video? Surprisingly though it was not those things that got him fired. No, it turns out the man had outsourced his own job to China and paid the company there a fraction of what he earned in the US. This is brilliant. Unfortunately for him, Verizon, who handles the company's internet noticed that someone from China was always logging on to the system and an investigation was begun and the developer lost his job. Bob was considered the best developer in the building. That's right. He did this while working from an office. Typical day for Bob:
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
