T ruth © ear Dr. Truth: I have two friends that e-mail me all day long. Please let me clarify that – it is only during their work hours. I also work. The policy in my office is the computers are owned by the company that I work for and that I am there to do company work. We also have random drug tests. Not only does it irk me that my friends know this and continue to forward me racist and political things, but how do they get away with playing on the computer all day? I receive e-mails from them from 9 to 5 – never before and or after. My heavens, don’t theyevenworka full day?What can I do to get them to stop?
