    Sir. Really. Calm down. No one is getting prosecuted for making a phone call or two from the work phone. If this is a genuine concern of yours I suggest you may have an awful employer. As you can see in this thread, international calls are extremely cheap these days and most large corporations also enjoy highly discounted rates. Unless you are taking the absolute piss, no one will notice and / or care.

    It's just a really trivial issue compared to other factors like false expense claims, absenteeism etc which are genuinely expensive and really are taken seriously.

    (Anyone defending the employers side of this issue, I hope you are also ok with workers dropping arms and walking out the second their contractual 9-6 is over. Most reasonable employers understand the relationship is one of give and take and if they expect to their employees to do more than the bare minimum they can also expect to give ever so slightly more than technically they need to. If you're doing unpaid overtime and freaking about about calling your friend from a work phone, you are being far too deferential and fearful. In most cases employers owe you more than they explicitly give).
