A woman lost her job after abusing her boss on Facebook – forgetting that they were friends on the networking website.
The woman named "Lindsay” updated her Facebook status with "OMG [oh my God] I HATE MY JOB!!" and went on to accuse her boss of being "pervvy" (sic) and complained that she was forced to do "**** stuff".
Her boss ‘Brian’ saw her status and posted a reply. He mocked her for forgetting that they were friends on Facebook and could access everything that she wrote.
Social content website Digg has posted screen shots of the exchange, which appears to be genuine, under the headline "Why you shouldn't have your boss on Facebook", reports the Telegraph.
Lindsay, who has a picture on Facebook, appears to be around 20 years.
She wrote on her profile, "My boss is a total pervvy ******, always making me do **** stuff just to **** me off!! ******!"
Brian, an older man who is pictured wearing sunglasses, replied the same day and said, "Hi Lindsay, I guess you forgot about adding me on here?"
He added: "Firstly, don't flatter yourself. Secondly, you've worked here 5 months and didn't work out that I'm gay? Thirdly, that ''**** stuff'' is called your 'job', you know, what I pay you to do. But the fact that you seem to be able to **** up the simplest of tasks might contribute to how you feel about it.
"And lastly, you also seem to have forgotten that you have 2 weeks left on your 6 month trial period. Don't bother coming in tomorrow.
"I'll pop your P45 in the post and you can come in whenever you like to pick up any stuff you've left here. And yes, I'm serious."
The exchange has since been circulating on emails and blogs all over the Internet.
