Porn: Your Key To Unemployment

by X3 on June 4th, 2014 in Men

Unemployment[Editor’s note: today’s post is an excerpt from Eyes of Integrity: The Porn Pandemic and How It Affects You by Craig Gross with Jason Harper]

The office was buzzing on a typical Friday afternoon, where most of John’s coworkers were wrapping up a week’s worth of emails and laying out the schedule for the following week. After twelve years at the company, John’s casual Friday was the day loose ends were tied up, off-campus lunch appointments ran long, and everyone wore jeans.

Despite the company’s success, John had remained humble in his role as a department director. He had a team of six people who reported to him directly, and he made a great salary. In fact, John had just recently told his wife of fifteen years that he could see himself retiring with the company. Granted, only forty-two years old, John was optimistic, but his thoughts of retirement were a comment on how much he enjoyed working there. He loved the people. He loved the freedom. He loved the flexibility.

But on this casual Friday, listening to the buzz outside his office, it became apparent to John something was go on. He peeked his head out and the first person he saw was Drew, the head of Information Technologies, whose job was to keep all of the company’s computers linked together on a server and to keep them connected to the internet. Drew was surrounded by a bevy of workers, barking orders at his assistants as they took a brief moment at each computer workstation. Initially John was taken back; usually scheduled maintenance was done on weekends and department heads like himself were told of the update. Not in this case.

As John watched, he realized the workstation computers were each getting scanned and loaded with an internet filter. Drew made his way over to John’s opened office door.

Johnny, can you believe this madness?” John offered a sheepish shrug and a half-hearted nod of his head. Drew continued, mincing no words. “Who in their right mind would take the chances of surfing that s–t on company time?

Slowly the pieces of “surfing that s–t” began to stick to John’s conscience, and though Drew was a formidable image only inches a way, John ignored the rest of his tirade. Instead, John’s mind began to rapidly recall all the times he, while tucked away in his office, would slip over to a porn site to sneak a peek.

Occasionally John would see a quick image of a sensuous seductress that really stirred him, so he would grab his portable jump drive and insert it into his computer’s USB port.

With the clandestine cover-up in progress and portable storage ready to receive, John would download the porn to a folder he had slyly called “Trash.” He had once seen a movie where hackers hid malicious material in trash folders, because it is the last place that an average person would look. He never saw the irony of the name he chose for his stash of porn.

He failed to realize that each of the more than two hundred images in his “Trash” folder could wind up being a nail in the coffin of his employment.

Drew’s words snapped John back to real time. 


Someone at the company has been surfing porn while at work, and they’re going to be nailed.” John’s stomach sank as if he had just experienced the downward vortex of an unexpected drop he used to feel on roller coasters at the state fair. He felt like he was going to faint.

 “I just wished people would get it,” Drew finished. “Nothing done online is anonymous.”

    I look at porn, and remain employed. Because I have the common sense to keep the porn at home.

    • church boy

      from experience it can start at home the next thing you looking at it in work time – because we where tracked at work I used my new iphone – thats when I know I had a problem and need help

      • Albibird

        I’ve been looking for about fifteen years now. If it was going to happen, it would have happened by now.

        • Frank Honess

          I’m curious – are you married? Have kids?

          • Jason Scott

            Why does that matter? Guys look at porn. It’s normal. Christians want humans to fight against evolution and instinct.

          • Frank Honess

            Pornography is FAR from normal. Actually it’s a complete perversion of healthy human sexuality. It’s the complete opposite of love. Nothing about porn is real. And it’s as addictive as alcohol or drugs.

          • Jason Scott

            Oh please. You can get addicted to anything. If porn is the thing that sent you over the edge I got news for you buddy, you were headed there either way. If not porn then it would have been cheeseburgers, scratch off tickets or booze.
            We are are well aware that porn is fake. That’s why we like it. We know that real women won’t act that way for you. Trust me I KNOW.

          • Frank Honess

            NEWS FLASH: REAL women aren’t supposed to act like that for you. That’s because porn isn’t real and it isn’t real love. And it’s really naïve for you to think that men KNOW that porn is fake. Are you kidding me?? Some guys live for this stuff 24/7. It’s their go to, their drug of choice. It’s their world. And it’s destroying lives. If you don’t believe me, I’ve got some really hard numbers for you that supports this.

          • Jason Scott

            If you don’t know that porn is fake then you’re an idiot. I have no sympathy for stupid people.

  • Jason Scott

    Seriously, who surfs pornhub at work? This guy is an idiot and deserves to lose his job…
