Home worker gets verbal warning for gaming on break despite switching to their own PC

Imagine discovering your boss had somehow been listening to everything you did and said, even outside of meetings and phone calls. How fired would you be? Okay, so it’s a little far-fetched for most, but these are the fears of one Redditor, whose boss found out they were playing video games on their lunch break, and gave them a verbal warning for it.

Recyyklops posted on r/antiwork after they received the warning for simply spending one of their lunch breaks winding down, playing some video games… because why not? Usually there aren’t official rules for what you can and can’t do on your break, although reading through some of the comments, I may have just been really lucky with my bosses.
