Today, I was bored at work, so I started browsing the Internet. While I was on my Facebook page, my boss tagged me in a status: "I've been standing behind you for ten minutes." FML

Did you "like" his post?

You kind of deserved that....workplace is for work, use Facebook at home

Too bad many people don't understand this concept

It's a damn shame

Not necessarily true. Someone could be on break or on lunch.

Imagine the boss saying that while OP was at lunch, the FML would have referenced a creeper boss. Clearly, OP was slacking off while on the clock, and got caught in a big way.

One of my web jobs required me to be on many social media pages several times a day. I've also been in offices that didn't mind if people took a small break that way. Many opted to do that instead of a smoke break, which meant they were easier to find if something went up. It's when people a use the freedom that things go to hell. People goofed off at work long before the internet.

why are people down votinging this? He's right, you know.

Did you "like" his post?

Not sure if that would make it better or worse. On one hand he could find it funny, on the other, he could be furious that OP is still on Facebook even after the warning.

I wonder if OP commented on that post.

Wow your boss must be bored as well if he watched you for 10 minutes

Maybe he was waiting on her to get off of the phone so she can continue to work.

Did you even read the fml? lol

I think she was thinking the mobile version of Facebook.

You definitely deserve that. You shouldn't be on Facebook if you're working.

I think OP deserves that for also adding his boss on Facebook. Bad move.

Is your boss a ghost or a pro stalker? You should've heard him at some point, or at least felt his presence. Still, you shouldn't be on Facebook at work, YDI.

Feel his presence? OPs use of the force is not that strong.

In this one, the force is not strong. The presence of boss he did not feel.

Your boss is awesome! LMAO! YDI

YDI. Act like a pro and take a toilet break with your phone next time. Your boss sounds cool though.

Is that acting like a pro? Sitting in the toilet on Facebook on your phone to beat boredom? Work gets boring at times, but you are being given money to endure it. Stay at your desk and stop acting like a child waiting for something sparkly to look at. THAT'S being a professional.

I agree with #8 on using it in the bathroom. I think, or at least what I took from it, he was saying that you should wait UNTIL you have to actually use the bathroom to go on said media.

That's what I got from it #26. Plus, sometimes you have slow work flow or you've gotten a shit ton of work done and your brain needs some junk food. Going on FB from time to time isn't that horrible. Sounds like OP was spending too much time on it though. My boss has caught me on FB before but she watched me check my notifications and then X out and made it a point to tell me that that was an appropriate personal break from all the work I had done.

you should never be surfing the web at work, its bad work ethic. YDI

youre lucky he didnt fire you. some businesses dont like paying employees to not work. save facebook and other not related work things for the break room or a bathroom break.

The thing here is that if OP had not gone on Facebook, the company would still be paying him to not work, otherwise he would not be bored in the first place.

Sending you a Facebook message to tell you that you are busted is funny. At least your boss has a since of humor. Stay off Facebook at work though. YDI
