Is It Okay To Watch Netflix at Work? [Poll]

Is it okay to watch Netflix at your desk during the day? Now I realize that this question might lead you to immediately say, “No way!”  But before you answer, I’d like you to really think about it.

A couple weeks ago, I asked you for help with my Netflix addiction.  I couldn’t get enough of ‘Walking Dead’ and it was taking over my life.

Now that I’m all caught up on ‘Walking Dead,’ I’ve moved on to another show.  I picked up ‘Dexter’ last week and now I’m hooked.  Seriously!  A show about a serial killer that kills other serial killers!?  Seriously!  I can’t get enough.

And that leads me back to my original question: Is it okay to watch Netflix at your desk during the day?

Once I’m done co-hosting The Morning Show with Brad and Jackie, my duties shift.  I am a middle manager who spends half of my day shuffling our music library, dealing with personnel issues, answering emails, posting staff schedules and working on any number of projects and reports for upper management.  It’s not like I’m in customer service or waiting tables.

Sooooo… Lately, I’ve been catching an episode or two of ‘Dexter’ while I work.  Now, before you say, “I don’t care what you’re doing, Brad.  You can’t work and watch TV at the same time,” consider this: I know many of you with office jobs listen to the radio.  One of the reasons we started to stream our station online is because of the number of you who requested that you be able to listen to radio from your computer while at work.  Many of you also listen to Pandora and I know several of you like to listen to talk radio like Rush or Sean Hannity.

I asked the same question on the show this morning and your responses were split.

Is there a difference?  Is watching Netflix at work, cheating the company out of productivity or is it really no different than listening to music or talk radio?  Take the poll or leave your comment below.
