Money doesn't exist until you make it, companies. Study after study has shown that employees who goof off and have fun some of the time are far more productive than the constant workers.

But the owners/CEO/directors/the board can fark off for golf or whatever any time they want to with no hit to the bottom line right?

"However, at the end of the day, it is unlikely that a few days of March Madness distraction will impact the company's bottom line."

If it's costing employers 1.2B an hour but it doesn't impact their earnings, then someone else must be paying for it. They're sending someone else the bill. Do you know who? That's right. It's you. You're stealing from yourselves. I bet you don't feel so smug now. You could probably afford to eat real, delicious Cheetos instead of those generic cheeze puffs you buy by the bushel at Costco, if you quit stealing from yourself.
