Nope. Ignoramus should know not to.

No because they might ask me why I was on facebook during working hours too grin.

I have other more important things to do

bangandthedirtisgone Tue 22-Sep-09 20:49:36

But wouldn't that be a helpful thing to do?

Nope. Unless I was their supervisor..grin

Someone got sacked the other week for slagging off their job on face book, they forgot that they had added their boss as a friend, he saw it and sacked her on facebook.

Do you work with them or just know them?

bangandthedirtisgone Tue 22-Sep-09 20:52:25

Nope, don't work with them.

squeaver Tue 22-Sep-09 20:52:31

Tbh, either way, I wouldn't.

Facebook is part of natural selection imo.

People who are stupid enough to use it without thinking through the consequences deserve everything that's coming to them

if you've got the authority why not give them something to do and tell them on facebook to do it iyswim?

if not, they should know better.

I think its a bit interfering. Some people are allowed to use facebook at work, and if your friend isnt allowed then they probably know that.

KIM - A boss cannot sack you unless it's for gross misconduct. Saying you hate your job on Facebook isn't gross misconduct. Being sacked has to be done offically, not on Facebook. It's crap.

Ok, thanks for replies.

Just wonderered because someone (I haven't seen for at least 14 years) did this to me not realising I work part-time and it wasn't actually written in working hours.

I don't think I'd interfere like that in someone else's life, especialyl someone I don't know much but wondered if it was the norm/considered ok.

No she sounds like an interfering old bag and it would have really peed me off.

bigchris Tue 22-Sep-09 20:59:34

aw i think they were just being sweet

bangandthedirtisgone Tue 22-Sep-09 21:00:28

Yeah, and it was all tied up with loads of bullshit about how she's a solicitor these days and 'be careful you don't get fired' blah de blah. I tried to remind myself she was probably being nice but I can't help but think that she was possibly being a little condescending.

squeaver Tue 22-Sep-09 21:01:12

And there's yet another reason to hate it.

It's the WORK OF THE DEVIL, I tell ya..

bigstripeytiger Tue 22-Sep-09 21:01:51

I'd be annoyed by that too.

SardineQueen Tue 22-Sep-09 21:12:17

It's all in the tone. It's not intrinsically a bad thing to do, it could be a nice thing to do, depending on the tone and relationship between the people involved.

In this case, your friend sounds like she was being an annoying twat.

Not for posting whilst at work but I did when one of my friends posted defamatory comments about their child's nursery 'hitting' her son and naming the nursery. I was genuinely concerned the nursery would find out as she has added some of the nursery nurses.
