Should you be fired for sending 12,000 private texts on a work phone?

UPI reports that the Italian Supreme Court isn’t having any of Telecom Italia’s attempts to fire one of it’s employees.

Apparently the employee knocked up 12,000 private text messages from his work phone. He didn’t have an unlimited messaging package on the handset, obviously — as Telecom Italia were billed more than $2,000 for this.

It was back in the year 2000 though. Almost a decade ago. Between the months of January and October.

So the chap keeps his job, I suspect. I wonder if he’ll still get to keep a work phone?

I must say it depends on the company policy, but if there was a budget set for each employees' communication expense, then an employee spending that much will be in trouble.
