OMG! 150 150 Lauren Ellerman

OMG — (text for Oh my Gollie! / Gosh / God in Heaven)

  • Did you really tweet that your boss is an old fart?
  • Or say on your facebook page that you “hate my job and want someone to shoot me before I have to go back tomorrow?”
  • Did you send an email from your work email address to your husband entitled “customers we could probably take with us when we start new business?”
  • Or text a colleague right before happy hour “hey – grab me at the bar, I think we should open our own firm. lets chat?”
  • Does your LinkedIn Profile really state that you opened your own company 3 years ago when you only quit Virginia Company Corporation LLC last week?

OMG friends.

In the words of my favorite (*only but still favorite) brother – if you did this stuff, any of it, you are “going to get sooooooooooooed.”

Yes, that is sued, but longer, with a few extra oooos..

PLS (text for Please) use the round thing above your neck occassionally before logging on and running your fingers across some kind of keyboard. 4COL (text for – “for crying out loud!”).

Please call an attorney before you plan a business that competes with your current employer.


Even if you don’t have a non-compete, or an employment contract, you could get soooooeeeed. ICBW (I could be wrong) but, in case I am not – CM (call me, today).
