Is It Worse to be Humiliated or Lose Your Job?

Which Is Worse: Office Humiliation or Getting Fired?

Back in 2007, a 20-something intern at Anglo Irish Bank in Boston made a foolish mistake and it was so ridiculous that Radar is still talking about it. Here's the gist: young intern wants to celebrate Halloween, lies using a family obligation cover, and gets caught when boss finds evidential photos on Facebook. The following emails were exchanged between Kevin the intern and his boss, Paul.


I just wanted to let you know that I will not be able to come into work tomorrow. Something came up at home and I had to go to New York this morning for the next couple of days. I apologize for the delayed notice.

Kind regards,

Kevin's boss followed up by checking Facebook where he found this picture of his intern sporting a full fairy costume and celebrating with a can of Busch Light. What else could Paul do but reply to Kevin, attach the photo, and BCC the entire company on the email?


Thanks for letting us know—hope everything is ok in New York. (cool wand)
