Internet slander, the irony
i've been trying to raise awareness that the government is going haywire with their "criminal" records.
they tell everyone to plead guilty, they give you a couple of days in county jail, then after it's all said and done, every time you apply for a job they report your name to the potential employer.
increasingly, if an employer finds ANTHING, you don't get hired. they don't care if it's 2 years ago or 22 years ago.
not to mention, the government is handing out felonies for the simplest "crimes".
well , every time i mention it on the internet, everyone's attitude is "who cares?", "if the police picked you up then you can go F off and die"
the other day i received a phone call.
i looked up the number and it was a high-power lawyer.
i found a report on RippOffReport.com that said he confiscated a couple of houses from someone and sold them off dirt cheap.
to be honest, simply because the guy is a lawyer, i wouldn't answer the phone.
what ever he wanted, i don't wanna know, ...leave a message at the beep.
but then i thought of the irony.
if you're running a business, especially in a small town, ...if a couple of your customers FEEL like they got ripped off...and they go on the internet to complain,
...your business is freaking toast.
no police arrest.
no chance at appeal.
...just a public record.
what it it you guys always say? "life's not fair?"
the modern American public doesn't give a rat's ass about nothing, ...and what comes around, goes around.
so when you lose just enough business to make your company go under, my advice is, you better have a spotless driving and criminal record when you go to apply for work.
About half the middle aged and older folks you see working in these convienience stores are x cons.
I will agree with you about the spotless driving record though.....If you apply for a job where you must drive a company vehicle they want you to have a spotless record because it is better for the business as a whole with insurance companies looking at any reason to raise your rates.
Internet slander........ I heard you can be sued for that now.
