I bet he gets some play from it. He's got some nice tits, shoulders, and teeth there.

Yeah, you want to be careful what you put out there on the internet. Also, get your stories straight with your buddies on Facebook if you need to skip out on work.

And this is why upon graduation and the real job search I will be making my myspace page private.

I grew up near Worcester, MA -- so weird to see someone sneaking out of work to party there.

So, he emails his boss on the afternoon of Halloween (Oct. 31st) with a vague reference to family in NYC. He says he will not be able to come into work the following day, that Thursday, because he left that morning (Wednesday) for NYC.

His boss gets forwarded a photo of him in a costume that a (spiteful?) coworker found on Facebook and assumes that he must be lying about the "family emergency." (Which he never claimed, but was implied.)

I mean, the kid probably was lying but...

How do we know that he didn't go to Worcester, MA the weekend prior? Weren't most of the Halloween parties around here the weekend before Halloween?

Who's to say that he didn't go to a party in Worcester the weekend before, posted the photos of himself a few days later, and then, on Halloween, something actually DID come up and he had to go to NYC to be with his family?...

On the bank's website, it looks like they have offices in Boston, NYC, and Chicago. From what I've read, it seems like he was interning at the Boston office... Doesn't seem out of the realm of possiblity that he would have been partying it up on Worcester the weekend BEFORE Halloween...

His company damn well better HOPE that he was lying, 'cause, uh, if he was telling the truth and this shit (implying that he's a liar and a shitty employee) is now plastered all over the internet, well, that smells like a great big lawsuit to me!

His bosses response is so fucking awesome.

I knew it was smart of me to not post the pictures of me crossdressing on Facebook. Then again, everyone at my job already knew I was doing it.

Seriously, @1, the Busch Lite alone would qualify as "termination for cause" in my book.

Posted by COMTE | November 12, 2007 11:10 PM

... except that he never said "family emergency" in his message, just that "something came up".

what a class act boss to facebook stalk him then bcc the whole office with the results.

And here we have another fine example of why 2 people shouldn't pass on their genes

I've gotta say it: his man-tits bother me.

All right, I'm done.

Posted by Greg | November 13, 2007 8:32 AM

Nothing says "party bottom" like a can of Busch Light.

The fairy costume isn't helping much either.

You post pictures of yourself on the internet you get exactly what you deserve. Want privacy? Stop posting pictures on the internet. If you post it assume you printed it on the front page of the New York Times.

Posted by Just Me | November 13, 2007 9:05 AM

Paraphrasing a journalist I once knew, if you don't want it plastered all over the Internet and sent to your boss, don't let it happen. Simple as that.

Also, an advantage of not lying is that you don't have to remember to keep your story straight.

If I come up with any further tired cliches, I will post them.

Boo hoo for the selfish little liar who got his hand caught in the cookie jar. Just more reinforcement that 1) our generation is the one of the selfish douchebags (if you follow the story he apparently called in sick quite a few times) who think they can get away with everything and 2) Facebook is a great power... and with great power comes great responsibility.
My university actually just had a lawyer in our forum who explained the legal ramifications of online use. And photos of you online is about par with throwing them out an open window on a busy highway.

sent on the 31st...

all good parties were the prior weekend.

Wouldn't it suck if it was from then?
