And the bank is the bank, and the mortgage the mortgage! Fully agree.

The only thing is stick to a few (like 2) technologies, since if you have a CV with Java, C++, Delphi, C#, and no specialism, it's also not good.

Ah well, the solution was very unexpected perhaps. I now already have an extra job at the TNT mail service on Saturday for a year, and I am still with the same employer. It pays crap being a postbode, but I just think I combine exercise (walking) with an extra buck, that is sufficient to pay my mortgage..

Ok then delete them both, but including all my postings please! The above clearly shows that it can be dangerous use your own name on line, so no I never use my real full correctly spelled own name. If you suspend me, ok, that's your policy. Both names are close enough Í think, but not 100% correct. (I just used a second when I lost the other but I found it again.) It would be a shame, but better then getting in the position like the guy above who lost his job for writing something his boss did not like on line. Yeah well sorry to go then! I do not use my full ID on line, that is then my policy (and yes it is after bad experiences, not just to annoy you or something).

And I see that you've posted using a different account!!



Ooops.

Ah yes, well that is also to confuse I can say that it's not me. "It's almóst my name mister boss but no that must be somebody else!"



Seriously I have adapted my name a little so I can always escape this way. Sorry Javaranch, I know we should use our own names here but.....no, I do not trust it.

How To Lose a Job Via Facebook In 140 Characters or Less



Yes! Be very aware that everything you write in a public domain with your name under it can at one time be read by your boss or colleges. Now when you say things you might say in your group of friends, family it does not stand there for public. I have called my boss something like 'a wanker' on many occasions to my daughter and I am still working happily. Sometimes you say these things in frustration. Do not say them on line!! Also not in javaranch!

I think we had this discussion before?

Well 3 hours of weights training, one hour of cardio, and 160 km (100 miles) of work-office biking per week.

Yeah well that is álways the problem. Most do it at 18 others at 16 some countries even at 15. Ok strange comparison with age perhaps but there is always a grey area were the line must be. I would not pro definition fire someone because he or she got caught doing something sexual somewhere sometimes in office surroundings. (Assuming it will not become a daily after lunch habit.)

What is the worst movie you have ever seen?(worst would be hard to decide,so in your opinion which one is the most overrated one?)



Oceans 12! Incredible bad movie. Rented it from the video store and it was one of the few movies I started fast forwarding at the end, and then finally not even waiting for it to end. How in earth's name this movie got those good credits from other people I am mystified.

If you are showing yourself on purpose you are violating a rule. If you are caught by accident though, it's another matter.

And then we have the approaches in the news when caught with something innapropriate: americans deny until there is proof and then they are utterly silent. Hugh Grant came right out and said "yes, that was me. so?"

I thought it showed pretty good depth of character on the part of the english.



My goodness, if you are saying that as an American you find English liberal on sex, that shocks me!! Actually most other Europeans find them prude and frustrated shówing that with that giggling fart and pee humour, if you then want a stereo type.

I doubt if many companies would have éxplicit rules on this. The hygiene aspect Gregg points out I can understand though.

Then about 'getting a room': What if the group is on a company outing during more days including a night stay and they have all their own (1 person) room in a hotel? And two of your colleagues are using one room, and not using the other so to speak? Well the boss says we should all be a 'good team and integrate', and then we're réally getting to be friends, and he is not happy again!

I know once the management told something like 'don't you two dare', when two got kinda too friendly in such a situation. Ah well they were a British company, and the 'couple' was Dutch and Swedish so there might be a cultural difference on this.
