You Can't Hide Online
I suppose you have heard all the old excuses for people being late to work, or not turning up at all?. Ones like, "the bus was late", "my car wouldn't start / broke down", "I had toothache". These have all happened to people, including me. They only become unbelievable when you get a whole catalogue of them one after the other.
More Work Excuses
Recently I heard a few more, all from the same person, "my cat got run over and I had to take it to the vet", "the dog wouldn't stay with the dog sitter", "my flight was late", "I got jet lag and I have been really sick and tired".
Can't Prove or Disprove
When there is no evidence one way or the other, then you have to believe them, although it gets difficult when they come thick and fast - how many pieces of bad luck can one person have at one time?
But You Can't Hide Online
If you don't want to be caught out skiving off work, then don't post your exploits online! The person who reported their flight as being late and suffering from jet lag posted pictures of what they were ACTUALLY doing on their Instagram account. Now, it would be really silly to post there if you know that your boss or the person you are trying to fool follows your Instagram account, wouldn't it? I imagine you would search for help on something like how to block someone on Instagram. You will find the information too. It's no doubt easy to block someone on any of those social media accounts. But what they may not tell you is that there are programs that can find anything you have posted online whether you have blocked someone or not.
The pictures from the person's Instagram account can be found using apps that can be easily found online. Their picture, showing them happy and relaxed in a group of people, was in a dated article taken from another website. They definitely didn't look like they were tired and jet lagged or very sick and unable to move!
Moral - You WILL Get Caught Out!
