Note To Self: Don't Skip Out on Work and Facebook About It Later

Note To Self: Don't Skip Out on Work and Facebook About It Later

The next time you decide to throw on your fairy godmother princess outfit, dip into your drag queen makeup stash, and throw back a few Bud Lights, think twice before you post your pics on Facebook. Kevin Colvin an intern at Anglo Irish Bank recently got busted for posting this incriminating photo on his Facebook profile. Okay so we've all had our moments, especially on Halloween, but Kevin had emailed his boss the previous day to say he'd be out for a "family emergency." According to Valleywag, Colvin missed work to attend the Halloween party. No word on whether he was fired, although his boss did bcc the entire email convo to the company, with the scandalous pics attached — ouch!

If you want to make sure this never happens to you, learn how to reclaim your name on the net.

it's easy to forget that your online life is not private - and other people, including people you know, can be watching you!

While it's awful that he lied, what does that have to do with the boss snooping on Facebook. Those are two completely different things. I'm actually less worried about the lying, and more worried about the privacy invasion!!!

Oh well. Maybe now he'll be honest when requesting time off. That's what vacation and personal day are for.

That's what he gets for lying to his bosses! They should fire him.

Yeah, sorry, I don't feel bad for this guy. He was dishonest and got caught lying. If I were his boss, you bet I'd fire him. I wouldn't send that email around to everyone, though — seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

You can control what pics your friends put up of you, it's called untagging.

Haha! He lied to his employers and how they found out was unusual, but he deserved to be fired.

leeluv I think the article said a friend posted it on their page - so it wasn't even his facebook profile - which sucks even more because you really can't control what pictures of YOU your friends post ---- yet another reason I hate facebook and myspace.

While skipping work was wrong, I don't think it's fair for employers to scan your page and fire you. It's like their watching everything you post just waiting to fire you. That was his page and he should be able to post what he wants and not think about being fired. Although I wonder what privacy setting he had on because if he didn't safeguard the site before hand then he was just asking to be watched.
