So here is the first pic in hopefully a series of profiles of coworkers. We had a fire drill on Tuesday so I tried to snap a couple. I'm not good at snapping pictures with my phone without people noticing apparently so I have no future as a voyer. Whenever I can get more I will gladly share them with you. You should all keep in mind this is a gross invasion of privacy....in public. :lol:

This is Diane, she is 60 years old. She is the one you get more of the full view of and she reminds me a lot of chicken lady from Kids in the Hall.

picture of big nosed coworker lady was here

http://blog.holidays.net/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/11042007.jpg

I'm sure resemblence is obvious. Sitting near her really seals the deal as she is one of the most annyonig people in the office. She has argued that personal phone calls should not be counted towards a persons break or lunch hour and that the company should understand she has a daughter to talk to at random times throughout the day. Her daughters are all over 21 by the way.

The biggest issue and the most annyoing thing about Diane was her inability to keep her cell phone on silent or vibrate for my first 18 months here. Twice a day I would hear 'supercalifragilisticespalidocious'. Mostly when she wasn't at her desk while her phone was so it played forever and ever. I don't know how many versions there are of such an awful song but this was straight out of the musical. I could picture Mary Poppins dancing with that umbrella.

The lady on the right is bigger than me but she is nice. Her name is Shelley. She is a mormon and one of the snitches at work who you have to watch your words around. She definitely has a chip on her shoulder and thinks she is one of the only few who does her fair share of work. She is married and I assume she lives in Mesa because she is mormon but that's just a stereotype. She is in her late 20's and recently moved cubicle locations so she didn't have to deal with any of us in the big records room. Now she sits in a cublicle outside of our area with 2 others from records. Shelley has given me Soduku puzzles to work on when my internet ban was in effect.

That's all for now folks. I hope some of you can contribute photo's and profiles of some of the slugs you all work with.

I did a quick search to find out what is legal or not when it comes to posting a picture of someone without them saying ok. I didn't really find anything one way or the other in the quick search. It was funny though when I put in my search question the first link was "how to hack into a personal profile in facebook" lol ...... cr****

This doesn't answer the question but I did find this:

Even on public property, you can’t photograph somebody who has a “reasonable expectation of privacy.” Basically, that means you can’t snap shots of people in the bathroom, a dressing room, or similar places. Ask yourself: “Would the average person expect privacy?” If so, don’t take a photo

Unless, of course, you don't actually care if they know how you truly feel about them. In that case, post away homie.

I think I am going to disagree with the popular opinion (shock). As long as there is not libel involved, I don't think people can say much of anything. If a newspaper wrote an article about the street where you live, and they said "XX lives here, they paid XX for their house, they have 3 kids, etc" you really can't do much about it. All of the XX information is under the Freedom of Information Act which you might not like, but it's the law. Now is it good taste? I guess that depends on you. ??? cr****

Understood. The internet I grew up with had things like "mosh girl" and the dude from Walmart who blogged daily about his retarded co workers ( some of them actually retarded). The zillions of internet meme's created to humiliate folks and so on. I don't think this is even close to that type of stuff and honestly the chances of any of them finding their picture on the Coachella message board are incredibly slim. They can barely operate their outlook let alone navigate the internet and somehow find a photo of them that isn't tagged with them in any way. It was just meant as a fun way to rant about co workers and treat them like those magic the gathering cards or garbage pale kids.

Either way, the picture is down so the piling on others are doing is kind of silly at this point.

What Fax said about his Mormon co-worker is probably not libel. I don't even think what he said about the other co-worker's work habits and complaining could be construed as libel. But posting a pic of her and comparing her to the chicken lady is sure straddling the line. She may have a case, though she would likely not receive any compensation because it didn't affect her financial situation.

And she's not considered a public figure, so I don't think satire could be argued in this case.

I wouldn't get offended by that, but many people are touchy. You're straddling the line, as far as libel is concerned, because you're expressing an opinion. Rather than stating things like she is 60-years old and lives in Phoenix (or whatever).

I'm sure resemblence is obvious. Sitting near her really seals the deal as she is one of the most annyonig people in the office. She has argued that personal phone calls should not be counted towards a persons break or lunch hour and that the company should understand she has a daughter to talk to at random times throughout the day. Her daughters are all over 21 by the way.

The biggest issue and the most annyoing thing about Diane was her inability to keep her cell phone on silent or vibrate for my first 18 months here. Twice a day I would hear 'supercalifragilisticespalidocious'. Mostly when she wasn't at her desk while her phone was so it played forever and ever. I don't know how many versions there are of such an awful song but this was straight out of the musical. I could picture Mary Poppins dancing with that umbrella.

So, after doing some thinking, I don't think this woman would win a libel case. He stated his opinions about her, but didn't try to frame those opinions into something that was a concrete lie. If he would've said "This is Diane and she stole $50,000 from work" then that would be libelous. He just said he thinks she looks like the chicken lady. He is allowed to express an outlandish opinion that a reasonable person will clearly know is an opinion. It would be up to the court to decide if a reasonable person would think this is just Fax's opinion, but I'm pretty sure that would be the decision. Most courts will look at things that are posted on a message board as clear opinion or hyperbole, unless the targeted person is falsely accused of something (see my "stole $50,000" example). Even a controversial opinion will likely not be grounds for a libel suit. What matters the most is if there's an insinuation of fact in the statement that a reasonable person could believe to be true.

The only reason why I thought this might be straddling the line between libel and not is that this woman is not a public figure. Therefore, she doesn't have to prove actual malice.

I'm just talking about what he wrote and not about posting the picture. I'm not sure what the expectation of privacy would be in that situation.

Next up was going to be my co-worker named May (her real name is a different month). She's about 86 and looks to be about 123. She constantly walks around with her lazer pointer telling people that their beverages need to be purified with her lazer pointer. She came to my desk one morning when I told her the water tasted funny. She pulled out her lazer pointer and did a virtual stir with the rays and with a grin said "now try". I did and it tasted the same. She shrugged and said it was woth a shot.


She kinda looks like this lady but I don't think she smokes.

http://friendsofburma.org/lwinmoe/imagesDec2006/old_lady.jpg

Just last week I had an altercation with May about a file. She came to my desk asking me why she has it in her hand if it was never tracked to her. She didn't know where it came from or why she had it. I told her to just track it to the shelf since it is closed and put it away. She kept pressing the issue and didn't understand why it would have came to her. I told her it really didn't matter and we should just be happy it's not lost and we have it. No reason to work backwards, my boss was talking to me at the time and she told her "May, just go file it". May glared at me for several days following that incident.

Are you asking if the newbie could sue us or the board for being mean to him/her? If someone called the newbie "gay" or something like that then that person still wouldn't have a case because of the context in which that statement was made.

There is nothing wrong with the picture (if posted without a description).

And there is nothing wrong with the description (if posted without a picture).

But there is something wrong with posting both the picture and the description.

Without a picture, no one can tell who you are talking about (unless you identify the person in your description by name, address, etc.).

And without a description, all you have is a picture (so you are good unless there is something wrong with the picture....such as nudity, etc.).

But by putting the 2 together, you are opening up yourself to a potential claim for defamation or some violation of privacy laws.

In a litigious society there is potential for a zillion lawsuits. That doesn't make what I did illegal.

Where are you getting the idea that the two together is what opens it up to a "potential claim". State laws or federal laws? Privacy laws or libel laws? Do those laws include cell phone cameras?

You are making a general statement with little substantiation.

ETA: In 2004 the Voyeurism Prevention Act


The Video Voyeurism Prevention Act prohibits the photographing or videotaping of a naked person without his or her permission in a gym, tanning salon, dressing room or anywhere else where one expects a "reasonable expectation of privacy." Violators can expect fines of up to $100,000 and/or up to a year in prison.

This doesn't necessarily make it illegal for someone to snap your photo without your permission though. For instance, if you're just walking down the street and someone takes a picture, they're well within their rights no matter how violated you might feel. But if someone takes a picture of you without your permission while you're getting ready to shower at the gym, it's against the law. This law isn't limited to camera phones but also includes camcorders, cameras, and digital cameras.

I never called what you did illegal. I said you are opening yourself up to a "potential claim." Do you know what potential means? Do you know what a "claim" is? Anyone can make a claim against you. That doesn't mean they will be successful.

I never quoted you or discussed you using the word illegal, the point is who gives a shit about a potential fucking claim? Not me.

So, I may be a stupid airhead but that doesn't change how pointless your post was or the fact that you didn't dispute a thing Tommy said. :) Grrr baby grrrr..

But there is something wrong with posting both the picture and the description.

But by putting the 2 together, you are opening up yourself to a potential claim for defamation or some violation of privacy laws.

Rather than resort to this name calling why don't you just show us some evidence to prove this point or clarify what you meant. "something wrong" to me sure comes off as illegal but feel free to explain further.

i simply meant that putting the 2 together creates a greater possibility of being sued.

Legalities aside Mark...are you posting from work? And-haven't you been written up for spending too much time on the internet? You need to remember that you live in a right-to-work state; they can terminate you at will. It's pretty stupid if you're posting about the idiots you work with FROM WORK knowing full well that you've been in trouble for being on the internet before.

Unemployment doesn't pay much in Arizona.

Especially if it's the person who does the actual firing.

This thread went from a borderline funny idea to talking about law cases? Holy shit, worst thread of the decade.

I find it funny that I'm having trouble getting a job right now, but the people that actually have jobs seem to do very little work while there

Yea I have been to work for 5 hours now and have done nothing but surf. I am not complaining, but sometimes life is not fair. I know people who would work hard at my job if they had it. I would say I have Retirement syndrome but it's been like this at my work for 25 years. Hope you get a job ..... cr****

We had 2 "postal" people at my work thru the years. There was only one shot in a window, but that shit does happen. Spooky, we have the same post numbers YB lol ..... cr****

True dat, homie. I've applied for about 50 jobs so far, and have only spoken to 3 employers (offers pending).

I'd just about suck someone's dick to get a job.

For some people that is a job...

I work for an underground utility company in the office and we are starting to get quite a bit more work and are now placing ads to do hiring. I have also heard from people out looking that they are getting more interviews and seeing more postings. Things might be finally leveling out and/or improving.

Good luck.

I don’t think they could sue but that is not what I was saying. If a newbie girl comes on the board and “we” say “Hey it’s a girl and everyone knows all women are whores therefore we already know you are a whore and suck dicks so come on down to my place and do it….” that is all right but you can’t say a woman at work looks like a chicken on the board. Hummm ….. cr****

I have no idea what this means.
