Work can certainly be tedious at times. Long hours and stress can cause anyone to want to blow off a little steam at the office. Some folks listen to a little music to relax, while others watch funny YouTube clips. One Baltimore man, though, decided these traditional methods weren’t his bag, and instead used his foolin’ around time to watch hours upon hours of hardcore pornography.

According to the Baltimore Sun, an anonymous complaint was filed regarding an unnamed maintenance supervisor at the Department of Public Works. The tipster claimed the supervisor was watching a lot of porn on his work computer. Upon hearing this, the city’s Office of Information Technology monitored the man’s computer, only to find out he had watched 39 hours of porn over a two-week period:

The employee worked at the facilities division of the Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant on Eastern Avenue. After the complaint was filed, monitoring software was installed on the employee’s computer, and the amount of pornography was cataloged over an 82-hour work period, according to the inspector general’s report.

The amount of time spent watching was recorded as 39 hours — nearly half of the employee’s time on the job. On one particular day, viewing occurred for 6 hours and 46 minutes of an eight-hour day.

This porn-loving chap was not shy about his viewing habits, either. The man brought his favorite DVD from home, and proceeded to watch it full-screen from his desk. According to Inspector General Rob Pearre, Jr., it wasn’t the quality of what was being viewed by the employee that got him in trouble, though:

Inspector General Rob Pearre Jr. said the case, which came to light after an anonymous complaint to the Office of Information Technology, was unusual. He said the city has a policy against an employee using city time and equipment for non-city functions, regardless of the nature of what’s being viewed.

“It would have been the same if he were watching sports on his computer for four out of eight hours a day,” Pearre said.

After an appeal, the supervisor was relieved of his duties in January. This should give him plenty of time to work even harder on his favorite hobby.
