“A girl I used to work with was a com­plete slacker, and she spent most of the day on Face­book, while I did all the work (which she shared the credit for). Af­ter a par­tic­u­larly stress­ful week where I had sin­gle­hand­edly com­pleted most of our ‘group project’, I was to­tally fed up with the sit­u­a­tion. To get back at her, I cre­ated a fake Face­book page un­der her name and up­loaded a bunch of pho­to­graphs of her and other co-work­ers from our com­pany re­treat, adding in­ap­pro­pri­ate cap­tions. Then I sent mes­sages from the ac­count to the whole of­fice, in­clud­ing our boss. The next week, ev­ery­one was talk­ing about her, and our boss sent out an of­fi­cial e-mail pro­hibit­ing the use of ‘per­sonal Web­sites’ at work be­cause they could cause the com­pany se­ri­ous em­bar­rass­ment.”

Noth­ing would come in the way of show­ing off her eye make-up, es­pe­cially not a puny fringe
