Exactly. What was the guy thinking!?! And if you're goofing off and work and get caught, your boss has every reason to fire you.

Bloomberg's a hard ass and I agree this guy had to be an idiot either not to know that Bloomberg was there or was too wrapped up in his solitaire game to care.

That said, this guy did not deserve to get fired. Way to make an example out of a guy you know nothing about Bloomberg. Then again, who knows what the real story is.

Thank you. ;-D



As to the guy who got fired, he had been with the company for 6 years? Fired on the spot? No discussion at all?

Wow 8-o ......just Wow. 8-o
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I agree that it's ridiculous to compare a politician who fires someone to a Nazi...but I think a call to ban the word Nazi is equally as ridiculous.

Ah, the work ethic of some people. Pay me for doing nothing. Heck, I deserve it.
Pathetic.

Almost everything Bloomberg has done has been unpopular yet has produced results. NYC tax payers' money should not be spent on Solitaire.
I applaud Bloomberg for this move. Make an example of this guy.
Now his staff will work harder with one less slacker on the payroll.
