    My friend used to do this but he worked from home. He would always invite me to a game of fifa, i'm like dude i'm working wtfs wrong with you.

    Regarding security guards, I'm kinda neutral about this. If I was a security guard I probably wouldn't whack out my console because I'm too locked in when i'm playing fifa. Although I'm pretty sure that many people probably fall asleep or are on their phones most of the time anyways.

    But what's one or two security guards going to do if a team of gypsies appear all tooled up. They're only there for insurance purposes may as well crack on with his weekend league. Give him free time when he gets off.

    It was a security job I be in a gatehouse site used to be empty on weekends I know it's wrong but that would be the only time I would have been able to play WL

    From now on, plan your weekends, think about it, if you are at work you dont sign in that WL, if you are at home or have spare time just sign in and play, that's what i do since i encountered some conflicts in my famailiy when i played wl instead of doing more important things, remeber its just a stu*id game, and play for whT? You will stil get some lame red pick and nothing in packs, next weekend, you start again... Dont let the game control you, play when you have time only...

    Should a security guard get the sack for reading a book to pass the time on a long night shift.?? I think the OP was just trying to pass the time dont think hes addicted or anything despite the username. To be honest I would do the same if I was in a security role although I would make sound my work partner was sound or take a one man role.

    I’d hazard a guess that you can pay more attention to your surroundings when reading a book than when playing WL. What’s next, getting VR goggles and headphones on, and playing a fully immersive game 😂

    He could be practicing security techniques on VR though 🤣

    Good point 😂

    It's absolutely your own fault dude!

    Nah, we arnt all angels, this stuff goes on all over the country.
    I'm an electrical engineer so I work at businesses everywhere, I've been on nightshifts where I'm the only one working and everyone else is sleeping.

    Snitches get stitches.

    What if everyone sleeps and something important happens? If it’s security, what if someone is sleeping and it costs someone their life? I don’t like snitches, but I don’t like people who literally don’t do their job and force others to pick up the slack either.

    His team mate brings his laptop in though ?


    He’s not protecting the queen it’s a empty warehouse

    Again though, browsing a website on your laptop is definitely not comparable to raging on WL for hours on end. The guy himself has even said he knows he was wrong, I don’t get why would are trying so hard to defend him.

    Say he was in the menus though when the robbers appeared? Hes been doing it for 8 years with no problems anyway. Even got an email from the chief.

    Because life is hard enough anyway without being snitched on and making it harder. I’m sure he has people that rely on him. I feel bad for the guy. He’s not committed a crime here he’s just making the day bearable and true warehouse is empty so who is it hurting here ? He works hard all week as he said.

    I have people that knock off early all the time as long as everything is done I really couldn’t care less it’s the perks of the job that doesn’t pay the world.


    I also respect your opinion mate but that is my one 🤣

    Are you a night watchman though? Be a long night just sitting there so why not bring your console to help pass the time. I'm sure if someone was casing the joint you would soon hear and soon raise the alarm.

    For me the OP is not filling us in on the full story. Hes clearly done something to upset the work colleague who's got his revenge by touting on him.

    If I'm hiring security, I'm hiring them to pay attention to what's going on while on their shift. I'm not paying them to make a judgement on whether or not it's quiet enough to do other things and I'm certainly not paying them to be playing weekend league. The fact someone snitched is irrelevant tbh. Shouldn't put yourself in a position in which people can throw you under the bus to begin with.

    boooo mr bob. 🤣

    This is a horrible take. Life is hard. Yeah. He’s getting paid to do a job and he’s playing fifa while getting paid. That’s unacceptable. I don’t care if it’s quiet or not. There is no one to blame but his self. I wonder if his co worker took a pic cause he’s actually working and this guy is ❤️❤️❤️❤️ off playing fifa.

    I actually don’t have any sympathy. Play fifa on your own time. Do your job. If it’s ❤️❤️❤️❤️ boring get a different job.

    I've been "working" from home since last March, which basically means I play video games whenever I want (when the kids are at school anyway), answer a few emails a day to look busy and get full pay. Still got my job.

    Moral is - only be a workshy skiver when you can definitely get away with it.

    This is pretty much what I've been doing since the pandemic started, minus the kids.

    Regardless of the unwritten “culture” on a weekend, if you’re playing video games you’re not doing your job 😂 shocked people defend this when it’s self inflicted…

    Either way, hope everything works out for you and you get back working. Hopefully it serves as a lesson I suppose.

    Well he has a new job sorted so no need to smash it. Not like he was planning on going on the dole and sitting around all day in his underpants playing squad battles. To be honest if he goes on to a better job this work colleague has done him a favour.

    Dont think all those having a go know the nature of security work its hours on end sitting about with not much happening I'd imagine
