One of my reports spent nearly 300 Euros on their work phone making personal calls which was highlighted to me by HR who asked me to talk to them about it. I had a chat and it turned out it was because they used the wrong SIM card in a dual SIM phone and they were quite distressed about the whole thing as you can imagine, as that’s not a small amount of money.
Afte finding out the reason, I sent a message over chat to a girl I’ve recently been seeing and had told about the situation, because I’d mentioned it and she was curious as to what had happened too. However instead of just using the grimace emoji at the end, I accidentally slipped a big smiling one in there too. I felt a bit uncomfortable about mentioning it at all, but now not only am I sharing this sort of information with someone else, but I look like I find it funny too. Basically showing myself up to be an arsehole on multiple levels.
Also, on Android, when you get a notification on Facebook Messenger in the bottom left of the popup it says Like. If you hit this, it sends a thumbs up to that person. A thumbs up in a conversation is always a passive aggressive action. This is the worst feature that ever existed. So many times I’ve gone to swipe the fucking notification away, only to send a random thumbs up to someone. In the below example, I’d asked a comedian if I could use a clip of their set at the show I run as part of a promo video I was putting together, we’re not particularly close. I saw the popup while doing something else entirely, swiped it away, accidentally liked, and then had to stop what I was doing to point out that was an accident.
I have no idea how to turn it off and it’s only a matter of time before it happens again.
