    fedupdon, unfortunately whether or not your work is getting done, if you are on company time, there are numerous cases supporting her view. Don't lose your job over non-business on business time.

    She can say that your conversation was a warning and upon a second event, might result in an official reprimand leading to termination. If you are on a company computer, anything done, written, viewed, etc... can also be viewed by your employer. There is no expectation of privacy on a company computer.

    I don't disagree with you, I just don't want to see you make a mistake and jeopordize your job unless it's not an issue to you.;)

    SaddleSarge is correct, fed.

    As long as you are on the business premises, you must abide by her rules. There are long settled cases in every state that uphold an employer's right to set determine what takes place or not on her premises.

    Please don't jeopardize your job for TFF at work.

    I know an attitude like that ticks you off, it would me too. But, what's the bottom line? You obey the rules, or you go hunt another job!

    I can perfectly understand this womans position, guns are bad, they are eivl! Why, right here where I live there have been no less than eighteen guns seen walking the streets, looking for victoms in the last week!

    Sorry to hear about your concerns at work. I must admit if my boss told me to cut it I would. Lucky he is a 2nd A supporter and Gun Owner.

    Don't get yourself in any trouble at work regarding your hobbies... remember you can't buy any new toys without a paycheck.

    I hate to say it, but the boss makes the rules. Of course that doesn't mean that you can't have open and active discussions with her afterwards. But, don't lose your job. Company time is company time. I didn't gab on the phone with my wife and friends on my old job. I'm a driver now and it's not-officially endorsed but it keeps you awake at night on the road so the bosses certainly look the other way.

    What others say is true....it is the company's computer, the company's money that is paying you so the rules are the rules.

    Having said that, I wonder if she would have taken the same position if she had learned you were visiting a site that promoted gun control or some other anti-gun web site. Hmmm. :rolleyes:

    you don't need to be working for a liberal, tell her and her Obama supporting ass to find some other liberal to fill your space.

    I get the dirtiest and most raunchy e-mails (mostly jokes, occasionally pictures) from my boss. Unfortunately we do have a company-wide filter (as in the entire company world-wide) which cuts a lot out. This slipped through, anything with the word Xbox for example though is blocked :rolleyes:. Fortunately we still had YouTube.

    (I work(ed) in a building materials store, we had a lot of downtime :D, and you can only play so much frisbee with a front-end loader)

    Screw that. Quit that job. I worked at a place like that once. It was run by women that hated men. They crapped on us on a daily basis. I put up with it for a year, then found a better job.

    Now, I work for a cool dude that is a gun owner like me.

    I look at everything at work, except porn. That's off limits and I really don't care to anyway. I hear its addicting. LOL Blessed with a good job.

    If she is so ignorant that she hates all guns, just hang in there, her ignorance will assure your climbing the ladder and you will replace her......
