So, today at work they said I need to stop reading polk forums and messing with my cell. Which sucks, because I work at a really boring position, where anything to pass the time is a godsend. My manager acknowledges the complete lack of things to do, but she is just passing along the message from LP (Loss Prevention, the guys who monitor cameras, make sure we are doing our crap, etc).
The cell thing I understand, people shouldn't be on their cells in a retail job. But I work behind the scenes, and am discrete about it, so both customers, employee's, and even the camera's cannot see what I am doing. Not because I want to keep it a huge secret, but because I understand that if I am seen with phone, other employees will want to have theirs out too. Sort of a if he can do it why cant I. But as long as I dont disturb anyone or let it keep me from doing my job, I have trouble getting behind the no reading forums, no cell rules.
By the way, the issue with the forums is that they dont want trade secrets and the general practices of the store getting out. I guess maybe they think I could be a Best Buy spy. Dun dun dun.
