This is from a report in yesterday’s DT.
A woman in Australia who unfriended a colleague on Facebook after a dispute at work was found by a tribunal to have committed workplace bullying.
The Fair Work Commission, a workplace tribunal, said the decision by Lisa Bird, a real estate agent sales administrator, to unfriend her colleague Rachel Roberts showed a “lack of emotional maturity” and was “indicative of unreasonable behaviour.”
What is the world coming to? In the old days you’d just have an argument then stopped talking to or seeing someone and that would be it. Plus you don’t always get on with everyone at work or socially.
This woman needs to get over herself and whoever was on the tribunal should have told her this, rather than pandering to her. It didn’t say if she had been ‘re-friended’, which would be even sadder.
I suppose that I’m forgetting it’s a woman and they seem to get more excited about trivial things like this.
