Stupid Things I Hope I Never Do

Believe me, I have done more than my share. Some of them still make me shake my head and wonder "what the hell was I thinking?" Email can be fun but it can also be dangerous, quickly. As soon as you hit the send button your email is speeding along an information highway where you are no longer have any control over who sees it and where it goes. Recorded for posterity and can be viewed by any number of people along the way. This not a government conspiracy (they come a little late to the spying on workers game), just a fact. If you send or receive email at work, well they scan most emails. If you use certain phrases from home, your ISP can filter what you send and receive besides turning over all your records to the government. That being said, it is just never a good idea to throw an immature hissy fit and leave a "paper" trail.

As any good lawyer could tell you.
ABC News: The 'Bla Bla Bla' Heard 'Round the World: "'The pay you are offering would neither fulfill me nor support the lifestyle I am living,' she wrote, turning down his job offer.

Korman was not happy.

'You had two interviews, were offered and accepted the job (indeed, you had a definite start date).'

He'd already ordered her stationery and business cards, and set up her office computer and was amazed she conveyed her second thoughts by e-mail.

'It smacks of immaturity and is quite unprofessional,' he wrote.

Abdala's response? 'A real lawyer would have put the contract into writing and not exercised any such reliance until he did so,' she wrote.

'This is a very small legal community,' Korman responded. 'Do you really want to start pissing off more experienced lawyers at this early stage of your career?'

Abdala finally answered, 'Bla bla bla.'"
This girl is so disconnected from reality that she will probably try and sue for defamation of character. Exactly how much money does this girl think she is going to make as a starting lawyer with no experience? By the time she gets done paying her own business bills she might realize that there is very little left over to "support the lifestyle she is living". If her lifestyle is already that great, why work at all?
