Research shows that most men watch porn, but a Baltimore man lost his job after he allegedly watched 39 hours of adult entertainment in just two weeks.

Who cares what a guy does in the privacy of his own home, right? Well, he wasn’t at home. He was at the Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant and he was on the clock. In fact, the maintenance supervisor got paid more than $1,100 during the period when he was clearly maintaining something other than the plant.

An anonymous complaint tipped the city off, so investigators rigged the man’s computer with monitoring software. He spent nearly half the time they watched watching porn. In case you’re wondering if he just had it minimized in the corner of his screen, the Baltimore Inspector General report says when porn was on, it was in full-screen mode.

IT gurus will be happy to know the man wasn’t downloading his skin flick off the Internet; investigators say he brought a DVD from home. It must have been enthralling because in one documented eight-hour work day, he spent six hours and 46 minutes watching it.

The city suspended the employee without pay in September, then officially fired him in January.
