    Solitaire Costs Man His City Job After Bloomberg Sees Computer

    Published: February 10, 2006
    Playing computer solitaire on the job has become one of the more common, if stealthy, ways of passing time in the modern-day office. But people who work for Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg may want to think twice before playing the game.

    Skip to next paragraph

    Stewart Cairns for The New York Times
    Edward Greenwood IX at home. He was fired after Mayor Bloomberg saw a solitaire game on Mr. Greenwood's office computer.
    Edward Greenwood IX was fired Jan. 30 from his job as an assistant in the city's lobbying office in Albany, not long after the mayor spied the game on his computer screen during a Jan. 4 visit to the state capital.

    Mr. Greenwood, 39, said he was dismissed with no notice, and no severance pay, after working there for six years. He earned about $27,000 a year for duties that included sending legislative bills to city agencies and copying and circulating office memos.

    Mr. Bloomberg confirmed yesterday that Mr. Greenwood's firing offense was the game of solitaire, saying that city employees were not paid to play at the workplace. The firing was first reported yesterday by The New York Post.

    "I expect all city workers including myself to work hard," Mayor Bloomberg said during a news conference in Midtown Manhattan. "There's nothing wrong with taking a break but during the business day at your desk, that's not appropriate behavior."

    In response to a reporter's question, Mr. Bloomberg, who built his own financial information empire, added that his own lack of computer skills had probably kept him from using his work computer for anything else.

    Mr. Greenwood said yesterday that he always finished his work in a timely fashion, and that he played solitaire only when there was nothing else left to do, usually a few times a week or during lunch breaks.

    "Any and all work I had to do, I did with a passion," he said. "If I have a stack of things to be done, I'm not the kind of guy to put it off."

    Mr. Greenwood said that he had left the solitaire game on his computer while going to pick up tickets for the mayor and other city officials to attend the governor's annual address to the state. When he returned, Mr. Greenwood said, the mayor had arrived and was posing for pictures with other office workers.

    Mr. Greenwood said that he asked for a picture with the mayor, too, and that was when Mr. Bloomberg went into his office and saw the solitaire game.

    "I don't have any real animosity towards the guy," he said. "He's the boss, so if this is the way he wants it handled, there's nothing I can do about it. But am I happy about it? No."

    it does not look like the mayor had enough info to just fire him like that.
    suppose he was on a break?

    Actually they did have enough to fire him. That computer belonged to the city and I'm sure they have some disclaimer that pops up every day saying that "this computer is to be used for business purposes only" whenever he logged into it. Most companies do and that's enough to cover them. So unless he can prove that playing solitaire is part of his job description, he's out of luck. I've seen people get fired for even less. They like to make an example of someone to show the rest of the employees what they won't tolerate.

    we all know it SAYS that.
    But in practice only those that ABUSE it get fired.

    If it were strictly enforced equally half the staff would be fired.


    If he chose to file a law suit(which he still may) he may have a good chance at winning



    how much tax payer money would THAT waste?
