Man Fired for Playing PSP at Work - PCstats.com Man Fired for Playing PSP at Work
Mon, April 19 2004 | 10:23PM | PermaLink Feedback?

PCSTATS.comOkay, so bringing your portable gaming station into work isn't the brightest idea, but a guy named Steve Allcock takes this workplace no-no to a whole new level. You see, Steve likes his Sony PlayStation Portable, and he likes to sneak in a game of Grand Theft Auto while he's at work... except that our man Steve is a bus driver, and he played GTA - while AT the wheel of his bus!!

Reports the Sun; "...terrified passengers heard the screams of characters being butchered as he drove his bus between stops. Bosses fired him after on-board CCTV footage showed he had the handheld device on his knees. One passenger said: “He was playing on a Sony PlayStation PSP not only at bus stops but at traffic lights and sometimes while driving. The music and sound effects could be heard throughout the bus.

Said one passenger “I find it hard to believe anyone in charge of a bus capable of carrying 50 people would be safe driving with a PSP on their knees." Ironically, that last one is totally debatable... you know how eye hand coordination enhancing the PSP is and all, right?
