Today, my boss sent a message to a coworker saying, "We're putting all of you back on the phones because one of you can't stop watching Netflix so corporate thinks you guys don't do anything." That person was me. Everyone's pissed at me now. FML

You've come to the wrong place if you want sympathy for this. You not only deserve the shame from making your colleagues suffer for your stupidity, but you also deserve the words "I'm a moron" tattooed on your forehead, in Comic Sans, as a double dose of humiliation.

Be grateful you still have a job, I would have fired your ass.

Exactly this. I’ll never understand how someone can get away with purposely not doing their job.

It’s one thing to be bad at your job, it’s another to not be doing it at all.

Although OP is an asshole, if this is an IT job or some sorts, I've had Netflix running on the side while coding/writing. Since the uppers think that hes only watching Netflix, it looks bad. If no work is getting done, sure, but bosses don't see that. They see netflix being run =/= working.

I can understand doing that in your own time or if you are your own boss, however, if you're working for someone it's highly unprofessional and OP should at least be written up.

A lot of people think they can work and do something else at the same time. My colleague used to listen to music. Our job is like coding, something that has to be done in complete silence so you can think hard.
She was the least productive of all my colleagues. I don't believe you can code properly while watching TV.

Could be worse. You could’ve been watching porn.

Yes! The expensive ones! The ones with high-falutin laxatives in them, you know, with laxatives that are suitable for humans and not the cheap veterinary kind used in circuses.
