Some people are stupid. You know this, right? I mean, all of us can think of a handful of dumb people in our lives. So, this post isn't a lecture. It's not a "don't do this", warning post. What we have here today is simply you, me, and countless others laughing at someone's stupid use of social media.
I've been finding myself on lamebook.com
often these days, and sometime last week I came across this excruciatingly beautiful Facebook failure. Check out the image below... I'll dig into poor Lindsay under the picture...
Poor stupid Lindsay, you've given me so much material to play with here. I don't even know where or how to begin, in fact I'm kind of disappointed in myself (sigh). When all else fails, I turn to lists. Here is the "Dumb Things That Lindsay Did" list.
- Dumb #1 - "OMG I HATE MY JOB!!" You never know who's watching, so say only good things about your job on social media.
- Dumb #2 - Attacking anyone through social media is dumb.
- Dumb #3 - Attacking your boss through social media is dumber.
- Dumb #4 - Forgetting your boss is a friend on Facebook and then doing Dumb #1 and Dumb #3 is the dumbest.
I'm not all up to date on the latest Facebook privacy bullshit I keep hearing about, but it seems intense. If anyone wants to fill me in, that would be super. In the mean time, I think we all know to stay clear from just about everything Lindsay has done.
What are your thoughts on Lindsay? Have you seen anyone else perform a similar act? Seriously, what's going on with privacy on Facebook?
Pretend you're the employer. How do you handle this situation? Do you override the decision to fire Lindsay? What about the manager? What do you do?
