The Time I Got Caught Watching Porn!

The operation “breathing.exe” has stopped working. Please restart the system.

The message flashed.

Before you go any further, let me make it clear there was no porn involved (well, technically it was porn!) in the experience I am going to share. I apologise for misleading you and getting your hopes up. Nevertheless, I will let you decide if this experience of mine is worthy of your time.

I am sure you just came here on the basis of a single word. In many circles and societies it is considered a grave sin but here you are: reading, judging and most importantly, silently agreeing  with the words  I have written down. The pull of porn is very addictive and no matter what, I know the curiosity got the better of you.

Did it ever happen to you that there’s a day no matter how much you try to be cheerful but life comes down like a Muhammad Ali and knocks the hell down. Yup, my day was something on the same lines. When I got a moment alone from all the work load, all I wanted to do was chill, groove to some music and get some work done. But the day was not in my favour. I opted to shift all those ‘To-do’ list and started watching some science-stuff videos about ‘Face Recognition’.  The website warned me that it was some kind of ‘Phishing Site‘ but I clicked anyway.

Yea, I like to live dangerously!

So, here I was enjoying my solitude and suddenly my boss pokes her head. She needed me to edit some document which I had previously worked on. If you been skimming till here, then pay attention now. The story starts here. As she came near, I sort of panicked because I was supposed to be working and not watching some sciencey-stuff. So being me, I did the logical thing. I tried to close the window, unsuccessfully. And in that process, a window popped up with some graphic details on *cough* related to a porn site.

I froze. My boss froze. And then, all hells broke loose.

This message flashed somewhere in my brain. You know there comes a moment, a very embarrassing one where you wish dinosaurs were still alive and you can whistle and it will come roaring and gobble you up? Oh how I wished at that moment the dinosaurs were not extinct. My boss was running, screaming and I was pretty sure, telling every person in our team about this awesome moment. And here I was, trying to figure out how to breathe.

The moment I got my bearings back, all I could do was stick to one rule: No Eye Contact!

Yup, I resuscitated myself and got back to work, still wishing maybe an eagle can snatch me or cover myself in Harry Potter’s Invisibility Cloak. A colleague of mine said not to think about this. But the more I tried, the more I realised the society’s double standards. Every single one of us what porn is all about and yet when seen on public, acts as if its a big deal. A grave sin committed which can never make anything right ever again. Sure, making fun is one thing but humiliating them is very different. Thankfully, I was spared of the latter part. Still, I think its completely normal if some website redirects you in front of whole work team. Browsing porn is one thing, being addicted is another. Even though it was just a pop-up ad, it was quite a surreal experience.

Did you guys ever had such an experience? Just let me know that I am not alone here and maybe someday we will laugh together on our crazy experiences.
