A rant and panic attack.  
Oh dear god I'm in so much trouble, it seems our darling bosses installed a mirroring software program without telling us, and it records everything that has been on our machines.  So not only will they get me popping on and off the internet during works time my fics will appear as well, when I've been bored and worked on them. I know I have only myself to blame but I feel my privacy has been violated as they have been watching at lunch as well.  So Now I'm scared shitless I'm going to lose my lose job for misconduct. 

I know I'll be disciplined but christ what am I gonna do if they sack me? how do I tell my mum what's happened? she loathes me being on the internet at the best of times but this!!! oh damnit I'm such a prat.  Sorry for whingeing but I had to vent my spleen some way.

I'll take prayers, curses, anything, I'm prepared to throw myself on their mercy and grovel and start looking for a new job in the mean time, because I think they are looking at cuts and I have just gift wrapped myself.

They were looking for internet usage and they got me bang to rights on that! so I'll cop to it and hope for the slapped wrist, its the fact they can look at our other stuff that worries me.

'Employers must make sure that any monitoring or recording of personal emails or internet use takes place with employees' knowledge and there must be good reason for doing so otherwise employers could be in breach of the Human Rights Act.' I stole this off a search I did, it seems they can't tell you after the event so don't worry, be careful from now on!! xx

Thanks for that, I'm swearing off the inertnet at work from now on! that's if I still have a job, and were only told yesterday that it was going on, I'm still scared shitless though, our lot don't really care for our rights.

They don't watch everone all the time...it'll be for random sweeps, and they aren't allowed to do it without informing you of that fact. Take a deep breath, you'll be fine! And use a memory stick in future!

They only just got the softwear within the last couple of weeks, and according to the boss Paul has been recording everyone all the time as we are the guinea pigs. My Fics will never travel to work again and I wont be on the net at any time now!

I survived, a little singed around the edges, but you can't keep a good fan girl down it just means all my writing and browsing will be done at home from now on.
