This is hysterical, and much too poignant:
|Found this funny on Live, Laugh, Breathe. Deeply o_O on FB.|
Well, okay, working and blogging don't necessarily mix, either, but here goes:
We have all heard about the kid who got fired from the pizza joint for posting about a bad tip. The "next generation" of FB users post pictures of their receipts with bad tips. And Victoria Liss disgraced herself by using FB to round up troops of stalkers to attack the wrong guy. Heh.
But, way back in the day when FB was young and people were stupid, employees discussed inter-office politics online.
I remember arriving to work and being greeted by a sign announcing that the next employee who discussed the restaurant on FB would be immediately fired. One of the many things I liked about that particular manager: you knew exactly where she stood.
It started with one waitress baiting the rest of us by posting publicly about how, "as usual," she got the short end of the stick that night. Like a bass to the worm on the end of a hook, other employees starting responding...
The real bummer, in my opinion, is that those involved took the argument where it belonged: into private messages. Which means I never got to read all the juicy details. All I got was whatever people said about it later. Darn. There is nothing like the heat of the moment.
It gets better. In a highly misguided attempt to save face, the original poster claimed that she wasn't posting about work. Rather, she was upset about something else at home. My jaw hit the floor when I heard that.
Word to the wise: Don't lie. The rest of us know when you are lying.
