Laura Corin Posted November 1, 2012 Share Posted November 1, 2012 I tried to post this yesterday when I was having some computer problems. I can't find my post by searching, but forgive me if I'm double posting. My boss was talking about how I was chosen for this job. The selection process was down to me and a younger woman. As part of his decision making, my boss checked our names on Facebook. He couldn't find me (I have a very low key presence under a pseudonym) but the other woman's page contained graphic descriptions of her spending every weekend falling over drunk in the gutter. It's not that my boss is puritanical - he drinks and undoubtedly has been drunk in his time - but he wanted an employee who had some common sense. Getting in that state and then telling the world all about it didn't strike him as showing the kind of discretion and responsibility that he was looking for. I got the job. Tell your children....
