... Though I must admit, going in, I expected to have zero sympathy for everyone, but #4's was pretty unwarranted. But everything else, especially the one after it, holy shit.

#4 isn't any more unwarranted than the rest. Sometimes your job sucks, you're not supposed to make those things that suck public.

#7 I would have some sympathy for, but if her employers found out it was her, then it couldn't have been terribly confidential.

I guess what makes #4 so lame is that it's a grade D, basic cable actress that blew the whistle, not someone I actually have heard of (plus the fact that she totally ran off without paying the check in the first place; if it was just a no tip, well, that's different).

And you pretty much hit it on the nail with #7. Most bosses, even those who are web savy, don't know shit about their employee's exploits unless they're stupid sloppy about it.

online privacy is a lie. if folks could get that through their heads, things'd be ok.
