Maybe they could have fixed the pipes and gotten a heater and prevented all of this drama? It's amazing how people in power always seem to lose their common sense and actively destroy themselves with their own stupidity.

This isn't a case of "employer demands employee's Facebook password" because pages for businesses/organizations are created from a personal account but then can have other people added as co-equal admins. There's no good reason to refuse to give a superior access to a page representing the entity they have authority over.

Ima4nic8or: Her firing was not asinine at all. The only thing asinine was her posting comments that could reflect negatively on her employer. If she had a problem with the facilities she should have raised it up the chain of command within the organization.

Yeah, without reading her FB posts we don't know whether they were appropriate or not.  "Pipes busted, no heat... please donate" is fine. "My idiot bosses let things go to hell" is not.

Also, refusing to give bosses FB access is insubordination.

Dear Preston County Commission:

Congrats, your sheer douchebaggery is national! Your incompetence and hatred for the puppies and kitties made Caturday!

Here's a page that tells you how to reach the commission, if you're so inclined:  Since it's the commission's publicly available elected officials page (and the first one that pops in a Google search), I don't think it breaks any Fark rules.

National embarrassment, or give an effective shelter manager who actually gives a shiat about the animals her job back? Should be a no-brainer, but it is West Virginia, so there's that.

Courtney should take one of those commissioners' seat, running on the Kittens & Puppies Platform.

ajgeek: People testified the truth of her statements and they still fired her and denied the allegations? No, power doesn't corrupt in the slightest, ever.

/Christ, what assholes.

I love the part where the council said it doesn't have to consider what the public thinks. In other words: We know what we're doing is petty, shiatty, and unacceptable, so don't remind us.
