Programmer Secretly Outsources His Job To China So He Can Watch Cat Videos All Day
As Betabeat reports, Verizon’s security blog reveals that a programmer at an unnamed company outsourced his job to China so he could watch cat videos and look at eBay all day. The company eventually noticed that someone from China was using the VPN of the employee, investigated via Verizon, and the man was busted.
The man had hired a Chinese software company to do his job for him for 1/5th of his six-figure salary, freeing him up to spend his day as follows:
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
The Chinese company was apparently so good at the guy’s job that he won awards and got jobs at other firms, which he outsourced as well.
Is this the 21st-century, Laziest Generation, American dream?
