Woman fired after accidentally texting insult about boss to her boss
An Australian woman is out of a job after accidentally sending a nasty text about her boss
... to her boss.
She added, "We know this already so please try your best not to tell him that regardless of how you feel the need."
Nesbitt quickly realized her mistake and frantically tried to apologize, saying in a string of text messages, "Rob, please delete without reading. I am so so so sorry. Xxx. That message came across so wrong. Rob ... that is not how I feel. My sense of humour is to exaggerate. It is so far out of context ... please forget it and just go on as normal."
Apparently Rob couldn't go on as normal, and he fired her. Nesbitt claimed she was unfairly dismissed but the nation's industrial tribune sided with her boss."To call a person a 'd***' is a derogatory term to describe an idiot or a fool," a Fair Work Commissioner stated in March. "The word 'complete' is used to convey the message that the person is, without exception, an idiot or a fool - they are nothing less than a 'd***.'"
The Fair Work Commission was satisfied with the reasoning behind Nesbitt's firing and dismissed her claim.
