In Italy You Can Officially Watch Porn On Your Lunch Break But You’re Not Allowed To Smoke Weed

Watching Porn Lunchbreak

Unfortunately it isn’t the best of both worlds.

A judge in Italy has officially ruled that it’s legal to watch porn in your lunch break. However, they’ve also ruled that smoking weed during your lunch break is grounds to get fired.

The rulings came after Fiat tried to sack an employee after he was caught watching porn films during working hours. The worker argued that he had only ‘caught a glimpse’ – yeah right – of a porno during his lunch break and it didn’t affect his work, so in his eyes it was wrongful grounds for dismissal.

Italy’s highest court – the Court of Cassat – has now ruled that watching porn on your lunch break is not an offence worthy of being sacked. So I’m sure now everyone in Italy will be itching to get to their lunch breaks so they can load up some sweet porn on their mobile phones and jack off over it knowing full well that there’s no way they can ever be fired from their job. You’ve gotta love it when the law comes down in your favour.

Unfortunately though, the same can’t be said of those Italians that like to get high during their lunch breaks. Amazingly, in a completely separate case that was also heard yesterday, an Italian judge ruled in favour of the same Fiat factory sacking an employee because he was smoking doobs during his lunch break.

So yeah, no getting high and having a wank during your lunch break basically. Or no getting high at all during your lunch break.

To be fair, I find both of these verdicts pretty much fair. If you’re getting stoned during your break that will last for a while and impair your ability to do your job, whereas if you’re watching porn (and even if you’re having a wank) that’s going to be over before you’re back working and shouldn’t affect your performance, so you should be allowed to do it.

Props to the Italian court, although it probably shouldn’t be that surprising that they’ve ruled this way in a country that has just commissioned a reality TV show about porn stars.
