Yes! People rejoice! We all have had jobs where we need to vent, and now you can vent your ass off on statuses on Facebook and Twitter, now due to the settling of a case out of court by a Connecticut ambulance service who fired a woman for complaining about her boss on Facebook in a status update.
As long as your aren’t being specific about who and where you are referring to, you can pretty much say anything you like, and if they fire you, you can sue that ass and get that nice settlement. So vent away and unleash your rachetness corporate drones!

A Jacksonville mother charged with shaking her baby to death has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.
Alexandra V. Tobias, 22, was arrested after the January death of 3-month-old Dylan Lee Edmondson. She told investigators she became angry because the baby was crying while she was playing a computer game called FarmVille on the Facebook social-networking website.
Tobias told investigators that she shook the baby, smoked a cigarette to compose herself and then shook him again. She said the baby may have hit his head during the shaking.
Farmville is not that good of a god—n game. Seriously. It’s not. Plus if you got that much time on your hands to play Farmville all d–n day, you probably have a whole host of other issues wrong with your life. Makes me wonder why she couldn’t apply that drive to getting a job or not smoking around your baby. I may rag on black single mothers a lot, but I have never heard of any of these hoodrat baby mamas say, “man if that little bad ass boy f–ks up my Farmvill harvest I’m gonna shake the s–t out of him.”
Plus she had a cigarette to calm down and went back in to shake the shit out of him again. As an avid cigarette smoker (yes I restarted, because why the f–k not) I know when something makes me mad to the point of whipping the s–t out of someone, a Newport has always defused the situation. Hell if I see someone walking around pissed off, I offer them a smoke, because shit, it works.
This white girl just might have been batshit crazy.
Welcome to the South.
