...In other news, a county recreation director makes $134,000 a year. Your tax dollars at work.

/The more you know...

This is horrible news!
Without email forwarders, I'd never have learned about the GOOD TIMES email virus!

/now get off my lawn!

Can I get fired for forwarding the fun emails that I receive from one of my company owners?

TXL

Lemme guess, he probably gets a couple hundred-thou severance pay, too, right?

(rolls eyes)

He had been using county e-mail to exchange messages with sexually explicit material and inappropriate racial references, County Manager Harry Jones has said.

Sounds like a typical day on Fark.
 
2006-08-25 12:27:02 PM
Three words:

Hookers and Blow
 
2006-08-25 12:27:13 PM
Was he sending them through company mail or an internet mail like hotmail/yahoo?
 
2006-08-25 12:27:22 PM
Dad?
 
2006-08-25 12:27:49 PM
If he mailbombs his former employer, will he get a three month curfew?

Or a typical joke that gets pushed about the office.
 
2006-08-25 12:29:33 PM
My guess is he was sending AdultFriendFinder emails from work while trying to find himself a piece of ass for the lunch breaks.

I love being a sysadmin, getting to know everyones dirty little secrets while scouring logs for something important is fun!

Probably not, actually. In this case, he was probably HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to tender his resignation (translation: "Quit voluntarily if you still want to receive your fat 21-year government pension.")

Typically, if you quit, no sev. But since he worked for a governmental body for that long, I'm pretty sure he's not hurting.

/speculation, but definitely an educated guess

Dumbass... get a gmail account or something for christ's sake..
 
2006-08-25 12:33:55 PM
My company has VERY strict polices on this stuff. Ya get warned once, mayyyyyyyyyybe twice, then canned. We specifically tell all new hires (on their first day) not to fark around with that stuff.
 
2006-08-25 12:34:36 PM
Five years ago I was fired from a $28,000 a year job for doing something simalarly stupid.

Now I have my own $134k+ per year business.

Gmail folks, gmail. That's what it's for.

That must be some pretty damn well directed recreation.

But please, don't mention taxes are too high or you are a heartless bastard...

Needs the "Dumbass" tag.

That should be the punishment for forwarding ANY dumb emails.
 
2006-08-25 12:41:17 PM
And no using the bathroom for personal use either!

pjpjpjpj: Lemme guess, he probably gets a couple hundred-thou severance pay, too, right?

probably not, but they let him retire, so he gets to keep his government pension. probably gets to keep his health benefits and gets a percentage (it varies much from state to state and county to county, but for 20 years he's probably getting something like 50%) of the average of his last couple of years salary (often 2 to 4) until the day he dies.

I got canned from my last job for using company email for personal use. Of course, it didn't help one of the emails I sent out was me insulting my boss to a friend of mine.

Now I use Gmail... no problems whatsoever.

Of course, I've wised up and don't talk about work stuff, even on Gmail.

Exactly!!

His boss was free to fire his ass for wasting company time. The guy is free to find another job. Of course, he was free to stop forwarding the emails after he was warned the first time.
 
2006-08-25 12:45:47 PM
We just got a company memo saying there is concern over the fact they some people may be bringing newspapers or printed internet articles into the bathroom to read.

The memo took the tone of "gee, we can't imagine why someone would read in there anyway, let alone on company time".

Right.

BKITU: /speculation, but definitely an educated guess

Must gubmint jobs have some type of 401b retirement plan where the agency places anywhere from 5 to 15% of your annual salary into an account for which you are vested in that account at certain intervals of your work life there.

You can loose this vestment in certain situations.

A family walks into a talent agency. It's a father, mother, son, daughter and dog. The father says to the talent agent, "We have a really amazing act. You should represent us."

The agent says, "Sorry, I don't represent family acts. They're a little too cute."

The mother says, "Sir, if you just see our act, we know you would want to represent us."

The agent says, "OK. OK. I'll take a look."


... no good can come of this ...

I, for one, will gladly not send nekkid pics via county email system, for a $134k/year + cushy gov't retirement and insurance package that I'd have to move to the coast for.

After 20+ years in almost any job, you're going to be over-paid and under-worked. If you're not, you're probably dumb.

give the guy a raise! this guy is ok in my book.
