Surfing on Company Time

A local paper conducted an online survey on "Tech abuses at work", 100 people ranging from age 20 to 34 and from companies as diverse as manufacturing to IT to banking and finance, were surveyed. Here are the results for "Top 10 abuses at work":

1. Make personal call

2. Visit non work-related websites and forums

3. Send personal instant message

4. Send personal email messages

5. Print personal documents

6. Charge personal electronic devices

7. Photocopy personal documents

8. Browse YouTube

9. Update personal blog

10. Play computer games

I admit I'm guilty of indulging in several of the above-mentioned activities during office hours, using office resources, abeilt discreetly.

Any "free-loaders" over here? What is/are your guilty pleasure(s)? Are such abuses very prevalent in your office? Any other kind of abuses which are not listed here that you would like to share?

Hands up, if anyone here have not made a personal call on the office phone on company time. I'll let "he who is without sin cast the first stone".
