Today, my boss bitched me out for violating workplace privacy, after he found an FML post from last year that eerily resembled a situation that happened the same year. He thought I posted it and twisted things to make him look like an idiot. I've never posted here in my life. FML

Maybe the boss will believe him since the FML says that he never posted previously.. It's a stretch, I know

Or even worse, he will probably think he did it just to secure an alibi. Remember Basic Instinct?

Yes, but the profile will show the confirmed FML?

But what if he used a different account?

He was anonymous on this one, even less proof!

HI his boss here. I kno it was yu now.

Well now you're ******

His boss already thought he posted. OP's just fulfilling the prophecy.

The final prophecy has been fulfilled! Praise be to the FML gods!

OP is making his bosses nightmares come true

And so you decided the best thing to do was . . . Post this situation on FML after you know now he reads this site?

OP is just setting himself up.

Well, it got accepted, so I guess it's worth it.

Well think about it. If OP responds to this FML, all the boss has to do is check OP's profile to see only 1 FML has been submitted, which is this one!

Or maybe it's one of OPs coworkers trying to set him up haha

If he's gonna get yelled at for doing it when he didn't, might as well do it.

Well now you did post something so it's believable

Well there's a first time for everything

Have fun getting another talking to when he reads this lol

Well posting that here was not a smart move assuming that there's an ongoing report - this only adds further "evidence" or proof for your boss to take you down with. Is there a chance that it could've been a different employee who posted the situation to FML originally? Though I will say this is why reading the fine print is important. I work for a fast food restaurant and my policy states that I'm not allowed to work for certain competitors for the next 5-15 years which is kinda ridiculous in my opinion... It's important to know company policies for things like this (like talking about the company over social media).

I can understand that in the Chemistry world and Biology world... But a fast food restaurant?, seriously? That's a ridiculous contract!

I'm pretty sure that's not legally enforceable; I think 90 days is as long as you can get and that's for a franchise owner.

The grocery store I used to work at made everyone sign a policy about complaining about the company, customers, or anything negative that could reflect back to the company. Anybody caught doing so was fired.

I've never heard of that policy. I know someone that quit Burger King for McDonalds. And one of my coworkers at Dominos used to work at Pizza Hut (the only two pizza delivery places in my town- competitors)

Wow, you're a special kind of stupid, aren't you? When you get fired, please know you 100% deserved it.

How did he deserve it? He didn't post the FML in the first place. But even if he had, his boss's argument is invalid as he didn't break any workplace privacy laws. Wow, now YOU are a special kind of stupid, aren't you?

He's stupid for posting on here after his boss clearly frowns upon it and actually a LOT of companies now are making employees sign policies about posting anything negative about the work place..considering this person was literally JUST talked to about it I'd say they're going to lose their job if the boss sees this.

21, it would be bad if he posted something negative about the workplace if we knew OP or where he worked.

corky1992 33

That doesn't always matter though. Depending on the company policy they could have a problem with it. His boss clearly does if he brought up this site in the first place and then the guy went ahead and posted on here anyways. My old job no matter where you posted it, if caught you were terminated.

RedPillSucks 31

well, neither the company not the boss is specifically identified so I don't think it fits the legal situation to be enforcable

They'd have to prove it was him. Well except I guess you have that whole thing in some states where you can be fired for no reason, is that indefinite? It's for 2 years in the UK.

#17...I'M stupid?? This person gets in trouble for a post their boss thought they wrote on this site and their immediate reaction is to go talk sh*t on the very site? Yeah, you're right. Great career move. I bet after their boss sees this they will get a huge promotion. *eye roll*

#8 & 98, we get that it's ironic OP would come on here and make a post. Yes, any consequences that OP may face from now on are theirs to face. However, the boss assumed OP posted that past posting. On top of that, it was a year ago. None of which proves that OP posted the original FML that the boss read in the first place. If OP is fired, OP can call for wrongful termination. Either way, it's bullsh** the accusations that OP is facing...

Johnson, you're fired!

So to prove you didn't post here you posted here. Genius move and say goodbye to your job if he finds this. Silly.

Actually if OP follows up, his boss can look at OP's follow up, and see how many FML's that he has posted.
