Woman Who Texted Boss Calling Him a ‘Complete D–k’ Now Has Lots of Free Time
An Australian woman who thought she was sending a text message to her daughter's boyfriend inadvertently called her boss a "complete d--k" and ... Then. Hit. SEND!
Louise Nesbitt was, unsurprisingly, fired from her job even though she had attempted to cover her tracks by immediately sending a follow-up text that read, "Rob, please delete without reading. I am so, so, so sorry. Xxx."
She claimed it was all in good fun. The commissioner for the Australian Fair Work board felt that it was far from a lighthearted insult, despite Nesbitt's argument that the context it was written in should only have included the intended recipient, and upheld her dismissal as justifiable.
Nesbitt had worked for the Perth-based company for six years.
Note to self: TRIPLE CHECK before hitting send!
