It’s not very often you come across a computer virus and breathe a sigh of relief. That is of course, unless said virus means you can get out of work early and kick off your weekend with a few extra hours guilt-free!
A new and admittedly unscrupulous service has been set up to offer on-demand fake computer viruses to afford wearer workers a way out of work early. The simulated viruses on offer are 100% free, safe to play with and modestly believable…unless of course you work with the solidly IT literate.
According to http://www.happyhourvirus.com/ it’s as simple as three steps:
Tell your friends you’re leaving work
Select a screen mode to “break” your computer
Make frustrated sigh and exit the building
Of course, we cannot recommend for one moment that the site be used for any such purposes and instead should be seen as a fun novelty only.
But if you do decide to kick off your weekend an hour or two early this Friday, we won’t tell on you!
