Hmmm...

I had a temp job that lasted from mid-May to early August. When it ended, I moved onto another temp job in another state. The first temp job, was one where there about 6 of us on the crew, not including the boss. I accepted all of their the friend requests on Facebook. I did send a request to my boss before leaving the job. We had gotten along well and I know that he had enjoyed working with me, he flat out told me. Anyway, in the last couple of months he has added 3 of the other people from that job. One of the 6 had been added last year since she was a re-hire this year. Anyway, one other tech and I hadn't been added. I know she sent a request as well. I don't if our former boss rejected her request or not. I haven't asked. Anyway, my request hasn't been accepted or denied. It's basically pending....says that request has been sent. I know he has said that he's not on Facebook that much, but he's been on enough to accept some friend requests and respond to a post or two.

I've had a couple of field supervisors send friend requests in the past, and I accepted. I know that I did send a request to one boss and he had accepted.

In the time since I left, we have chatted some by text and email. Of all the people from the job, there are only a couple of people besides the boss that I'd want to keep on Facebook. I don't understand what I've done wrong when I did well on th job. There were some things that I couldn't do because he didn't send me to the training in the very beginning, even though I wanted it. Long story there.

Oh well.

  • Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum

  • Y be some people I delete as well.

    I sent a friend request to a former boss from a different job and he accepted. Another field supervisor sent me a friend request. I eventually accepted after a few weeks (he wasn't my favorite person but added him with restrictions). I'm older than them as well. I also know that they have others from those jobs as friends.i can understand not sending the request & being a little skeptical of adding someone.

    I don't do LinkedIn and don't plan on it. Besides, I don't put anything on Facebook that I'd want to have out there to use against me in the future. The most innaproprite pic I have on Facebook is of my cat with her leg hiked up, getting ready to groom her parts. All other pics are of my travels for my work or travels in general (pics that give a basic idea of the work (when I can talk about it), wildlife pics, nature, or things that showcase the countries I visit, which hasn't been as frequent as I'd like).

    It's just weird knowing what I know about the other crew members. One of which, I discovered was the kind to tell tall tales, exaggerated things to make himself look better. There were a few other issues with how people dealt with situations. I never complained about any of my coworkers. I did my job the best I could considering I wasn't given the same opportunities as the others. There wasn't anything I could do about it, even though I wanted to have them.

  • He doesn't want to give you the D, but he wants to or is already giving the others the D. That's what Facebook is for. It's a grooming process for the D.

  • Stop caring about crap like that. F*** those people seriously.

  • I dont care about ur p****. c*******...

  • Shut up

  • I wouldn't take it personally. But I have to say, I also use LinkedIn on a professional level. I use Facebook for friends. I would never add clients, coworkers or supervisors on fb unless I consider them a friend. I don't think my professional life needs to mix with my personal. My exboss doesn't need to know who I am friends with. It keeps lines from being blurred. Don't take it personally that the guy didn't add you. Who knows his reasoning. Just accept not everyone is going to add you. And if you don't want a LinkedIn account, that's your choice.

  • As a boss / business owner I see facebook for social friends. It's real awkward when an employee, customer or supplier want's to be my friend. That is what linked in is for.

    It's even more awkward when the work related person is a young female. Much as us old guys have this bizzare fantasy of the young girl having interest. Well I guess we just leave that in the fantasy land.

  • I get what you're saying, but I'm older than him by a few years. I turned 35 in October. He will be 30 next year. He added 3 other techs, 2 of which were female. The male tech is about 25. One of the female techs finished college last spring and the other literally finished college this year. I was the second oldest tech. The oldest was in her early 40s. He hasn't added her either and the last I knew she had sent him a request, only because she brought it up. I'll probably end up undoing the friend request anyway. There may be some people I delete as well.
