Admin fishes dirty office chat from mistyped-email bin and then ...?



"In this case? I'd have done the same. If the Big Boss wants me to compromise my professional ethics by intercepting staff email on the fly, they can go fuck themselves."

I was once asked by a senior sales director of a large UK company if I could monitor an employees email. I said that I could but I would not do it under any circumstance but he could probably employ someone else who would. The director exited screaming and shouting at me, I just went back to work.

1 hour later he came back to me and apologised saying that he had a think about it and with me on watch his emails were as safe as anyone else s and he thanked me for standing up to him.
