    OK...so I wanna hear just how naive some people are about what they post on Facebook.

    Here is mine...

    Right now DH is on his way back to work over an hour away on top of the 12 hour shift he already put in to deal with Facebook Fools.
    Apparently one of his assistants is having a 'relationship' with one of his cashiers. A real company policy NO NO

    Wanna know how he can prove it? YUP! Facebook.

    DH got into work. Fired up HIS work computer and found the assistant managers FB page open and on it were several tell tale posts between this assistant and the cashier.

    Ya gott love the naivete of some folks.
    Best part...DH has suspected this relationship for some time. He even REMINDED the assistant of the compant policy.
    Easy part....he doesnt even have to get one of them to confess. He has it in writing.
    Little known fact...you can cut and paste someone's entire FB page into a word document and save it.

    So anyone else been able to use FB to catch a rat?

    BTW...so that we dont need to be moderated, remember that this is a family forum and all stories may not be appropriate for this audience (said in the voice of that really cool announcer guy on TV)

    No, never have. Personally I don't get the whole you can be in a relationship because you work together thing nor would I as a boss ever read someones face book page as too me it is an invasion of privacy but in saying all that if you new that was the rules when you agreed to work there then I guess you have no one to blame but yourself when you get busted.

    The assistant must be in a position over the cashier.. thats why its a no no?? That makes sense to me.
    Those types of situations can go south fast then theres hell to pay for the assistant/manager...

    Now can 2 cashiers date?? (have no clue why i'm asking that..just being nosy.. [​IMG]..)

    Some companies scan the Facebook/Myspace/Twitter/etc of their employees.

    If you publish something, do not be surprised that somebody reads it.

    And never have a relationship with the cashier if there is a chance you will be screaming "I hate you more; if hate were people, I'd be China! " at your wife later.

    Another cashier once called in sick for her shift and then posted pics of herself at a party...the pice were time and date stamped.
    It didnt take long for her friendly co-workers who wanted her hours to print that out and show it off.

    While these stories are kind of humorous, I really hope that this thread serves as a reminder that all social network sites can be dangerous to personal lives and careers if not used wisely.

    Yup caught me one. My neice's boy friend. He was talking all kinds of crap about her. She couldn't get in contact with him because she was on vacation in the boonies of Indiana. Her Daddy about popped an artery when I showed him all the posts that I copied and pasted and his replies to me when I callled him on it.

    Chicken little was hiding his nuggets for a good while!

    You are so right there. I wasn't meaning people shouldn't read it if it was left open. I was just saying I wouldn't.
