Facebook addict hires a woman to slap him out of it

by Gareth Mankoo

There are some measures that are quite drastic, when addictions or even mere distractions can affect productivity. Take the case of HackTheSystem.com man, Maneesh Sethi, for instance. He knows that Facebook is quite a distracting source and so he’s gone all out and hired someone to beat the responsibility into him. How? He advertised for a ‘slapper’ in CragsList. Someone who could slap him each time he drifted away to Facebook.

If this really improved his productivity then imagine what would go through the minds of HR personnel? We could have an army of slappers working their way through the day, one cheek at a time! Ridiculous!
