Using the internet at work (rant)

A question to all of the working moms on here, who are on here at work, how is it you manage to actually do your job and still hang out on Cafemom and or FB all day? Do your employers know they are paying to have you play on the internet? Seriously, it drives me crazy when people are online at work. Do your job, whatever it is, and stop messing around. (If this doesn't apply to you, then you're not who I am talking to).

Eh, one of my friends works at a call-center and can have as much as 45 minutes of downtime between calls. Her company is totally cool with employees using the internet on their own devices as long as it does not interfere when they are needed. If they can't handle it, their privelage is revoked.

 When I am on lunch I use the internet on my phone whenever I please. ;) I have no time other than that though. I'm busy at work.

I'm allowed breaks...and I work independently. I use my own phone or tablet, not their computer.

For my job, it doesn't matter. But I'm not on 'all day'.

I really don't understand why you care.

I could stand around with my thumb up my ass if you'd prefer... I have a ton of down time at work. My boss doesn't care as long as my work is done.

I care because it's unprofessional and poor work ethics, just like making personal calls at work.

Well considering my job doesn't consist of me working all day long every day, my boss doesn't care what I do on my down time. As long as I'm available when he needs me and I answer the phone when someone calls. He pays me quite well too!

Heck I even get my homework done each week while at work too. Lol

Oh and there are days where I work the entire day and don't get a minute to play!
