In my short time as a facebook subscriber, I had friends that I would pretend to not see in the supermarket, on the street, or at gatherings and they reciprocated. We weren't buddies, we were nothing but familiar faces. Facebook is ridiculous, meaningless and I can't believe it made anyone a millionaire.

Friends aren't statistics on an internet page. If spreading your business and life happenings to dozens of people you truly don't know is a positive in your life than you need to reassess.

Well, the reason it blew up originally is because (duh) people wanted to connect with their real-life friends. Keep in mind it was originally limited only to Harvard kids, then only to college alumni, so it was a pretty select and close-knit group at first.

Once it opened up to everyone of course people began sending requests to people that didn't know and that's what created this shallow current situation we have, although that's actually up to the user. Plenty of people I know don't friend anyone that isn't a real friend.

I try to do that, but it sneaks up on you sometimes. The other day I got a message from a friend I hadn't seen in fifteen years. I accepted her request then got another shortly later, from some dude with no message included. I ignored it and then a couple days later I get sort of pissy message from him about how he's her boyfriend so I should befriend him too. Why? I don't know this guy and frankly don't really want to, he looks like a ****** goon. Insecure people. But back to the point, that's an easy example of how the shittiness spins out of control fast, and you've got a FB full of people you've never met and don't care about.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

That's the worst part! You have people friending you that you hated and were never nice to but those people think that all that stuff is under the bridge. I hated at least half of the "friends" on my list.

The ex girlfriends were the worst part. I had three girls that thought that we were soulmates or some shit. They'd send pics, love notes, or compliments of epic proportions. I can only imagine the kind of attention my gf's got from past lovers

I'd be willing to bet that most friend requests are from people with vindictive vandettas in hope of corrupting the character of said "friend."

In the UK the word 'Paki', initially a short version of Pakistani is now no longer used due to the stigma associated with it - personally i would not use this word due to the stigma and offense it can cause but it all feels a bit world gone mad.

Good luck with your job, i hope your boss sees sense and keeps you on mate.

Freedom of speech only protects you from the government. If you do something that could potentially cause your employer harm, especially from a PR standpoint then they probobly can fire you. Especially if it involves one of their customers.

BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor

Short Update.


I saw the superior manager last Friday and i was told that he was going to be the one i am going to have to talk to about what happened. Well i ran by him because i was in a hurry and he just smiled at me and told me "Relax your going to hurt yourself". I was kind of shocked because i expected him to be in "Upset" mode since he is the big boss man that i was going to find my faith from.

So i am not sure what is going to happen. Him being friendly to me and not mentioning what happened seems like a good sign.

That's what happens when you have FB friends taht aren't really your friends. besides FB being private is ficticious, it always comes out, one away or another.

That depends on the state OP is in. In my state, for anything except for the federally-protected stuff (can't fire for gender/ethnicity/etc.), a company can fire a worker any time they want, for any reason that they want.

Facebook, letting people put private comments in public since 2004.

Personally I would fire you. I just don't understand why people always resort to race/ethnic insults as soon as they get pissed off. If someone did not stack their boxes correctly what does it have to do with them being Japanese? Nothing.

Your actions were rude, immature and antisocial. Also posting the company name of a client in your tirade is a no no.

I really hope you learn your lesson.
