Blooming Idiot: Solitaire kills job Dead

This story was reported by the New York Post on Thursday 2-9-2006.

Apparantly, New York City Mayor Bloomberg had a office worker of 6 years fired for having Solitaire running on a city desk computer. The Mayor was taking some photo ops and visited city workers desk. The worker rose out of his chair to meet the Mayor and shake his hand. Bloomberg noticed the worker had Solitaire running. The Mayor took no immediate action, but later had that worker let go, so Yahoo new says. Digg has the story and it made the front page. Also, Mike from Techdirt touched on this story.

Morale to the story:

For Employees: Alt F4
For Managers: Lighten up and stand up for your employees
For Leaders: If productivity is down, look in the mirror to see the problem
