Yesterday DH saw a status update on one of his coworkers. The message was kind of vague. DH thought it referred to something going on at work so he responded in kind. A few hours later there were responses from several people asking the OP what he meant. Then, out of no where this woman went on a rampage! Obscenity filled screaming rant about her own failing marriage and how the OP was a dirt bag for putting her personal life on facebook. Nasty mean stuff spewing her problems into cyberspace. Time went by and then an obvious friend of the ranting woman joined in the bashing. Then the first woman decided she understood a vague numerical reference and was even madder! Other people joined in both encouraging her and telling her to chill out. This went on for hours. Finally, the OP came back on and said "Wow, I have no idea what you are talking about this was about work. The number was a number of hours worked per shift. Now you put all of your own stuff out there not me, but I suggest you end this." She didn't. Her friend didn't. This is what it got me thinking: We all periodically hop on the crazy train. (OK so I have a year round pass.... ) But, now we have the chance to allow our travels on the crazy train to be broadcast for all the world to see. Total strangers to her watched her melt down for no reason. The OP posted another note this morning to his coworkers apologizing for this woman's language and inappropriate messages. Her insanity embarrassed him in front of his co-workers. Only a few years ago her rant would have been over the phone, maybe left on an answering machine, limited to him and her. Now, it could effect his job. We have boundaries in our lives for a reason. Have separate facebook accounts for different circles of people, use different names aliases. Your friends should not have the chance to talk directly to your co-workers, and sometimes your family should not overhear what your friends have to say! Even the google CEO said young people will have to change their names to escape their cyberpast!!
