    2 admins fired over email exchange in the office

    Just found this on Snopes.com - it's true! It's also hilarious!

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: 2 admins fired over email exchange in the office

    This kind of thing happened at my old work all the time. We had/have an intra-company instant messaging system that was to be used for work purposes only. I know quite a few people who are on warning of dismissal for a Code of Conduct violation when they were caught for "abusing" it. The hard part was that it was extremly easy to mis-fire a message to the wrong person. One married couple used to have a sales contest between themselves. They would try to encourage each other during the day. This was fine until she ended a message to him with, "I love you," and sent it to Incharge, the admin manager. She got in trouble, big time, and he didn't. Another girl was/is having a fling with a married manager downstairs and a manager on our floor came up behind her, she got into huge trouble, he did not. People forget that what is typed on a company computer is not private.

    Oh, please.
    Everyone uses e-mail like that.

    Also, someone here was stealing our lunches... so an e-mail like that would be entirely appropriate!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
