A cautionary tale...

A quick word of warning to my daughter, who both works at Argos and spends lot of time on Facebook.  Quoted on page 2 of today's UK Guardian, Tom Beech says:

I'm stunned they've fired me for this.  I had a really bad day and was feeling overworked and underpaid.

What was his "gross misconduct"?  Creating a Facebook group called "I Work At Argos And Can't Wait To Leave Because It's Shit".  Lol.  Perhaps there is a point to Fb groups after all?

Always best to assume that everyone reads what you write online and puts the worst possible spin on it.

In an incident referred to locally as ColeslawGate, I've recently been banned from my "local shop" as I blogged about it somewhat negatively.

This is no loss to me (I shop in a much better store on the next island where the coleslaw isn't a solid lump of frozen matter), but the way things work here in the Outer Hebrides (there are no secrets) means that word gets around e.g.

Never a dull moment here!
