Oh, so you're an Internet addict, huh?

People like this guy really piss me off!

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - A man who was fired by IBM for visiting an adult chat room at work is suing the company for $5 million, claiming he is an Internet addict who deserves treatment and sympathy rather than dismissal.

Dude, if you are going to get your perv on at work, it's your own damn fault if you get caught. To make it worse, they already warned him 4 months earlier about his use of the Internet at work.

However, where this starts to affect me is when he tries to hide behind the Americans with Disabilities Act. This isn't a disability asshole, it's a choice! We fight enough battles in the world of special needs kids without having dipshits like this muddy up the waters.

  1. Now I know why it's so hard to write for the Onion. Making shit up is hard when reality looks like this.

  2. Well, I certainly hope the judge throws the case out. If more of them did that, instead of letting any idiot have his day, we wouldn't have to listen to so much crap about how litigious we are.

  3. My wife used to work for that corporation. I wonder what she did with her down time at work.

  4. I worked with a guy who surfed porn even though he was warned about it. He got fired one day when he printed out a picture (beastiality I think was his specialty) and forgot to retrieve it from the printer, much to a female coworker's horror.
