    Thanks! Well, it's not really worth it I don't think. I only work casually for a small run business around mine, and I don't work there at uni. I might just give them a fake facebook for them to add. Thanks for your advice though xx

    They can't intrude like that. It might be worth contacting a CAB or some such.

    Or if you want to adopt my method it would be to start a brand new one, add no one but the little bastard and say this is your public one and the other is your private one which she has no access to (perhaps explaining if you did want to slag off the company you would not be so stupid as to do it online and does she not realise she is actually giving you cause to slag them off)... Will soon get bored looking at your work one with your status as "Not at work - Last updated 44days ago".

    Or if you want to get *really* funny, claim you don't have FB it. The person as you is an imposter. I really wouldn't back down on something like that because if they treat you like shit in your personal life then they won't think twice about it at work. You need boundaries so let the bitch know them.

    Could always say no, potentially get sacked and take 'em to court. Useful to have electronic evidence for that though.

    Haha I love this! Brilliant. Like I say, I'd be more bothered if it was a grown up job, but seeing as I'm a student It doesn't really bother me. I could just add her to my private facebook: the one where I'm a fan of LH! See what they think of me then!

    I think if you do add her you lose an important principled point. That space is yours to do with how you please. You have the right to behave how you wish in your own time and spend your time how you like when you're not at work, once you let her in she then has some control over that too... You can choose to work no more than you've agreed than you wish, do you really want her questioning you as to why you didn't tell her you were back from Uni so you could work or do you want her complaining about you not working because you fancied a lazy day when she was really stuck. To get around those problems you would need to not go on FB, not a big deal in itself but a big point in principle. That space is yours and it's unacceptable to expect you to share it.

    Or tell her you will add her to your personal account... if she pays you for it. My stepdad recently got pulled over using his mobile, got the fine and 3 points. He got pulled on a work job but they wouldn't do anything about it. I told him to stop using his phone altogether, it's a personal phone and he gets no money for calls etc... Within a day his boss wasted 4 hours going to an office he had to go to because he could not get his hands on my stepdad. He got a bluetooth headset out of it and is now happy to answer his phone. You have rights and should expect a certain standard of treatment, don't give in to the little battles unless you want to. It's really not on and they'll only treat you like shit even more.

    WHAT?! There is no whay they can do that Starlight, I'd take the advice off everyone here, just flatly refuse. You have your right to privacy and it is up to you and you alone who you want in your personal life. They cannot sack you, and if they do, you certainly have grounds to have them for unfair dismissal!

    Good luck lovely xx

    I know guys- tell me about it. WandA is completely right and I think that's what I'm going to do. Fingers crossed I won't be there much longer, but it's the principle of the matter now. I'm definitely going to take things further if not accepting means i lose my job.

    Well done Star, me and Ad know you can be to nice for your own good sometimes. The socialist streak in me gets fed up of hard working people getting ripped off by bosses who don't know the extra work people put in.

    You only have to look at places like the NHS and Royal Mail... Once they 'work to rule' the whole company grinds to a halt from people actually doing their jobs! If you're not appreciated there really isn't a point in you doing more than you're paid to.

    Anyway, enjoy when you do work!

    thanks W. I am a bit of a pushover sometimes, so it'll be nice for me to actually stand my ground for once. Thanks for your advice anyway- much appreciated x

    why my parents can come into the spotless kitchen and house and instantly critisize and complain

    and why they egnore me when im telling them anything

    why they take such pride in making me feel invisible and about an inch tall.

    Parents, or mine at least, have always, always been excellent at doing this.

    The minute (well, 10 days after) i turned 18 i got out of there and haven't looked back since.

    The place I'm looking is though. The postcode just doesnt match up with where its showing me. I had to travel down the road a bit and round the corner.
