Watch what you write

Let's hope this wasn't your sales manager: Woman Fired For Writing About Avoiding Work. From the article:


    Emmalee Bauer, 25, of Elkhart, was employed by the Sheraton hotel company as a sales coordinator in Des Moines. While on the job, she kept a handwritten journal. A supervisor told her to stop writing on company time, but instead, Bauer wrote her journal, all 300 single-spaced pages, on her work computer.


    In the journal, portions of which were introduced during a recent hearing regarding Bauer's request for unemployment, Bauer describes her efforts to avoid work.


    "This typing thing seems to be doing the trick," she wrote. "It just looks like I am hard at work on something very important."



I am speechless.
