In a letter to Fortune, Fred details how he was fired by his employer — without warning or severance pay — and soon after, friended by the very same (and now ex) boss. Obviously, the lay-off has left Fred with some less-than-fond feelings for his old boss, and while he's in no rush to accept the request, he fears ignoring, or even declining it, is poor Facebook form.
While Fortune's Ask Annie doesn't offer any quick fix for Fred's query, she does reveal the findings of a recent OfficeTeam poll that suggests that most of the workforce would be apprehensive about friending their boss on Facebook — preferring to keep their personal network separate from the office. What do you think? Would you want to be Facebook buds with the boss who fired you?
