Well i done ****ed up. Prolly gonna get fired.

Well guys i did something incredibly stupid. Iv been having some frustrating moments at work with one of the companies i have to go to. Basically i have to go to businesses and do package pick ups for them. This one company basically had about 50+ heavy packages/unlabeled/unorganized and not even in the loading zone. So im forced to go to a different room and stack all these unorganized boxes on the wooden pallets and then use their equipment to move them to the loading dock. Well then i have to relabel all their packages BUT before i can do that i have to find the right number because i have to do it in order. Then i can finally stack their boxes in to the truck. Normally i would have about 10min to 15min max on this stop or else i fall behind on my route. But with all the extra stuff i have to do this stop has been taking me 30,40+ minutes. Iv asked them to try and organize it and have it ready BUT they basically ignored me. Now here is where i completely ****ed up.

Keep in mind my facebook is private.

I went on Facebook and posted "God damn these jap people cant even organize their boxes. ****KKKKK this place is stressing me out completely. "Company Name" please jap people are supposed to be smart but they cant even orgenize the boxes correctly, your killing me!!"


Well i went to work and ONCE again i had a problem at their stop and i fell behind. When i got back to the station my manager called me in and said that his superior manager read the status update i made on FB and when he comes back from vacation we will talk about it. They are going to send it to human resources.
I am 98% positive i am going to get fired ESPECIALLY if it gets sent to human resources. Now i realize what i posted is not very nice BUT at i really didnt think much about it because me and my friends talk like that all the time. I didnt even really mean JAP as a racist term it was just a faster way vent my frustrations out.

It is really ****ed that i cant even say stuff on a PRIVATE facebook without getting fired.
But im not a stupid kid and i can obviously see where i ****ed up. I never should have put a vendor on blast like that no matter how frustrated i am with them. But it really does suck that i will lose my job over this. Lesson learned.... and i hope this story helps someone not make the same mistake i made. I know you think it will never happen to you and i thought the same exact thing. Yet here i am... waiting for my superior to call me in his office next week to tell me how ashamed he is to have me part of the company and that i am being let go.

God dammit!! no where on my facebook is there even anything that says i work for this place. What has happened to freedom of speech!! Gahhh *tear*

Anyone know of a place that is hiring??? in san jose. lol



I think i shall drown my sorrows in



for a while...

You should turn this back on them if you do get fired. You should be allowed to speak your mind on Facebook. However saying the companies name was stupid, you could have went on a rant without saying the company name.

I know i agree. I honestly dont even remember typing their name. I must have just subliminally thrown it out there with my rant.
Im not going to act like im the victim and whatever else, i know what i did was stupid. But seriously... to lose my job over this??? Back in the day this stuff never would have been okay. Society is so far up our asses that they basically wipe my ass for me.


I think im just going to say that i had friends over and i was venting to them about the job and one of my friends decided it would be funny to pretend to be me on facebook and make me look like a dick. I found out eventually they wrote some stuff on there but i just blew it off not thinking much about it.

Cause lets be honest. How can they possibly prove that i wrote that stuff??

Once you put something out there on the net there is no taking it back. Hopefully you will remain employed. Perhaps you can tell them you was having a private conversation amongst friends. If your account is set to private it would seem someone ratted you out. You could try to deny it. You could claim freedom of speech and what you did was in private and on your own time. You could also sincerely apologize and claim you was incredibly frustrated because your performance was suffering. You could check on you legal rights regarding the matter. No matter what, I would definitely fight for your job.

Hope it all works out for you.

I agree with HaVoK. Admit the error but stand your ground. Go on the offense with the Facebook thing. How did they get into your account? If it was part of a pre-employment reference check then they would have your info. Why were they checking in the first place?

IMO you have a right to know the answers to this info. Everybody needs to vent once in awhile. Approach it from this standpoint and you might be OK if you can minimize the "Jap" thing. Something along the lines of "I was really upset at the time and in hindsight I should not have used the language I did since I don't think or feel this way.."

Good Luck

Quote:
A National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruling suggests*companies cannot fire employees for things like complaining about their boss on Facebook.*This ruling was in regard to a recent case regarding an employee of American Medical Response (AMR) of Connecticut. *The case has yet to be fully adjudicated, however.

The employee posted a negative remark about her supervisor on her Facebook page, a remark that drew supportive responses from co-workers. AMR said the postings violated its Internet policies, but an NLRB investigation ruled the postings constituted “protected concerted activity” (activity for the mutual aid and protection of employees, like discussions about wages or working conditions).*The company is saying that derogatory remarks about a supervisor do not constitute concerted activity.

The issue at hand was that the company’s Internet posting policy was too broad. Legal experts are recommending that companies who don’t want to be in this same boat should have wording that specifies disciplinary action if the postings related to the company are discriminatory, abusive, insulting, or false. This will be an interesting case to watch.

We all have strong feelings about our freedom to say what we want. No one wants to live in a society where you can’t say anything for fear of repercussions. In this woman’s mind, she was sharing a thought the same way she would have if she’d been having a conversation at a restaurant with a friend. What if that restaurant conversation were overheard by someone at the next table who happened to be the brother of her boss? Could she still have been fired?

I think the issue is that people need to come to grips with the far-reaching effects of social media. If you think you that you can share something with 700 of your closest friends via Facebook and that none of is going to spread outside your immediate circle, then you’re sadly mistaken.

Another thing is I think a lot of people use Facebook as a passive/aggressive tool. It goes like this: If I don’t have the nerve to criticize you to your face, then I’ll post some thinly veiled remark about you on Facebook. You’ll read it, get offended and say something back. Then, I can swear I wasn’t talking about you. You might eventually believe me, but the point has been made. (No, I’ve never done this but I’ve seen some crazy stuff just by following a thread on friends of friends Facebook pages.)

The other thing is if this case is upheld and she gets her job back and she is free to snipe at the boss all she wants, what kind of atmosphere can she expect to go back into? I don’t know many people who could read criticism about themselves and then not hold some kind of bad feelings toward the person who wrote it. (It’s like in all those courtroom dramas where an objection is sustained and the judge instructs the jury to disregard a statement. I never understood that. You can’t unsee or unhear something.)

I’m sure this is the first of many cases involving social media that we’re going to see.

Whenever anything like this happens get everything in writing. See a lawyer if shit goes down. You might be ****ed but don't ever go down without swinging, also prep for unemployment, find someone at your work to give you a decent reference. See if getting fired/laid off gets you more money etc etc from unemployment, ask as a favor for them to let you go whichever way. You are not ****ed son, you are preparing for war. He'll you didn't make the mistake, they made the mistake, **** them, let's see if we can't get you some paid vacation.

Yeah someone did rat on me. I only have like 2 people as friends from this station so its not too hard to find out who it was. I guess they already either copy pasted the link or took a screen shot, im not really sure. My stuff is private so they must have logged in with the rats facebook account.
And no it had nothing to do with the pre employment stuff. It was just some guy wanting to be a prick and telling the boss.

Haha man i really dont know what to do. I am seriously thinking that if i just deny it there isnt really much they can do.
