OK...from time to time people come on here and vent about life, well now I guess it's my turn.
I go to work yesterday, and I had to go put something in my boss's office. I noticed a piece of paper that looked familiar sitting on top of his desk. Upon further examination, it was an email response I had sent to somebody else, but it was from my personal email account, nothing having to do with work. Yes, I have the privilege of using a computer at work. Yes I can access my personal email account while I'm at work. But, I only do it during my break and lunch. It is in no way tied into any work emails or programs. I shut my computer off everyday when I leave, when I came in yesterday, it was on (which is fine, my boss uses it to scan documents), but I did not leave it on, or have anything open for him to go "Hmmmm, what's this...." When I turn on my computer, none of my personal stuff automatically comes on. For example, if you click on the Firefox tab, it does not go directly to my email, it goes to a blank page with the Google search box. You'd have to click on my bookmarks, then scroll down to find my email account, click on that. Or, if you click on my Yahoo Messenger, for those that have it, you know how it works. Point is, you have to go looking around trying to get into my personal email.
And the paper that was printed....it was an email saying I could not make an interview. I put in an application for a second job, after hours, away from job No.1, which is none of anybody's damn business! Yes, I had my email setup in such a way as my password was saved. Lesson learned, and I'll fix/have fixed that. I did some research to see if it was legal to do that, and the responses were about 50/50, it's the company computer they can do what they want, or it's an invasion of privacy. Then my boss tells me he wants to have a "Personal " meeting with me. How's he gonna say " Oh went into your personal email and found this." I am furious, but also this is making me a nervous wreck. We talk later today. I want to *&%&^(%%%$&%#%&^%#$^%&%#$^@^!!!!!!!!!!!!
