Since I'm on my week off (and it's raining again) here is an appropriate news story from the Globe & Mail:

Some Canada Revenue Agency workers have been spending far too much time browsing the Internet and sending offensive e-mails – and not enough time collecting taxes. Internal reports show an average of 85 employees a year are disciplined for wasting their work days surfing the web, setting up sports pools, sending chain letters, promoting “illegal substances,” sharing offensive cartoons and running pyramid schemes.

“(One) employee browsed the Internet an average of three hours and 32 minutes per day,” says one investigation report from last July, or about half the shift.

3 hours and 32 minutes per day? Amateur!

Clearly these public servants (which is what we are called here) are amateurs!!!! More practice required!
