Not so sick employee sprung on Facebook

An Australian call centre worker has learned about perils of social networking websites after he was sprung on Facebook after pulling a sickie.

The Daily Telegraph reports that 21-year old Kyle Doyle called into work 'sick' after a night on the sauce, but then proceeded to update his status on Facebook with the following message: “Kyle Doyle is not going to work, f**k it I'm still trashed. SICKIE WOO!" The only problem was that his boss was listed amongst his Facebook mates.

A number of emails then went back and forth between Doyle and his boss before the hungover employee realised that the game was up. His last message reads: "HAHAHA LMAO epic fail. No worries man." It remains to be seen if his employers see the funny side of the matter.
