The problem with the digital age

We recently fired a new hire within her first week...actually, she didn't even make it through her first week. She dropped the F bomb multiple times, called one of our owners a **** and lied to our patients among other things within her first 2 days of employment. Immediately following her dismissal she recruited her sister, who has never utilized our services btw, to leave a negative review on our Google+ page. Thankfully, her sister realize her mistake and removed the review, but another friend left us a 1 star review. She has also never visited our office. Unfortunately, Google did not find any violations of their review policy and cannot remove the review. Trolls are everywhere in the digital era. Beware!

    Man, that sucks! I know the truth of that for sure, though - the digital age has been the blessing and the curse of the travel industry. I can recall at least two times from when I was managing in a hotel in California where guests (upon checkout) tried to blackmail me into comping their stay by threatening to blast the hotel on social media (no problems during their stay, mind you, just really sh!tty people). Sites like TripAdvisor and the like has everybody thinking they're a professional critic, and now I get pompous 20 y/o kids renting my tourist apartments and trying to nitpick everything in a review just to make themselves feel more sophisticated. Rawrghhhh sorry to threadjack.

    Its the new word of mouth but, the mouth never shuts.

    Keyboard Warriors and Computer Commandos.

    Hit and run, they never have to stand to what they post, and after they have posted they are all smiles and patting themselves on the back, "What a wonderful person I am...and sooo smart" never realizing for a second they are spineless cowards, who would never in a million years say something in public or to someones face.....


    And the "F" bomb.......everywhere you go. Why? I am so tired of hearing it I tune out anyone who uses it. It is not the space between words---it is a word, and it does not need to be used. Are people so UN-educated or ignorant or stupid it is the only word they can remember?

    I read somewhere, not on the internet, that the f-word came from jolly old England. Back in the day sex between unmarried couples was illegal, or frowned upon by The Church, and called "Unlawful Carnal Knowledge". It was abbreviated to UCK on some documents. People were then charged "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge" hence the f-word was born. I have no idea if this is really true but it's an amusing story, WTF I'll believe it for now.
    Someone said that the internet/social media is like the old bathroom walls, who was that, Dennis Miller. I miss the bathroom wall posts, and even posted myself, but then you had to know cursive writing lol.

    LOL I've heard that story too, long time ago. No idea if it's true either (I'd doubt it, really), but creative and funny nonetheless.
