(Pittsburgh, PA) Paul DeFries is glad to be an office worker in the age of the internet, as it allows him to get some Christmas shopping done on the sly this Cyber Monday while at work. But he admits it does impinge on his normal routine as a white collar employee working for a major US corporation.
“I have noticed a marked decrease in the quality of my Fantasy Football teams in the run-up to Christmas.”
Other parts of his daily activities during the hours of 9 to 5 at work are also being affected – he has invested far fewer hours competing challenges like Candy Crush and Words with Friends, and his work output is also suffering.
“My normally high productivity is definitely down at my exciting job in Second Life.”
When asked what his actual job duties at his place of employment were, Paul looks momentarily confused.
“Something involving safety regulation enforcement, I think.”
