Employee Takes “Her Shot”

Bad headline FoxNews.com. If someone quickly read the following headline, what would your first reaction be?

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. I’m assuming that this Jacksonville goof ball was involved in a workplace shooting. That’s not the case at all. Here’s the full story, and an excerpt.

When Marie Lupe Cooley, 41, of Jacksonville, Fla., saw a help-wanted ad in the newspaper for a position that looked suspiciously like her current job — and with her boss’s phone number listed — she assumed she was about to be fired.

So, police say, she went to the architectural office where she works late Sunday night and erased 7 years’ worth of drawings and blueprints, estimated to be worth $2.5 million.

Now, this really sucks for the business owner. But hey, has he ever heard of off-site backups? If you had data worth $2.5 million and you did not have it backed up off-site on a very regular basis (nightly) you are a fool.

FoxNews, along with the other MSM, create these types of headlines for one reason and one reason only. Hype up the news!
