I would invite both the Dingy and the Boat out to lunch with The Happy Phknlyr Couple. You do not want this going down at either the office, or the home. A pleasant yet calm lunch where both of them are separately invited, and show up. Best yet, (at risk they will converse and know something is up), Mrs. Phknlyr takes out the Dingy and Mr. Phknlyr takes out the Boat, and they all meet at the same restaurant. During these lunches you will have other assistance in making sure all of the personal items of each Vessel are neatly packed to not require either Vessel to return to their former Port. If such action is needed, it shall only by allowed under escort of a Harbor Pilot.

During your lunch 'dates', enjoy feeding them their Crow.

I believe that a good combination of the suggestions made by Mr. Love Machine and Mr. Damdonzi are in order here. A closing consult for Boat, with both you and Mrs. Lawyer, would put a resounding close to the situation for all involved. And by all means, please provide any correction to her posting as needed. Also, be sure to indicate to her that you feel compelled to make her new employer aware of her professional practices as a form of reference for her.

As for the Dingy, again, a meeting of the three of you is imperative. Inform her that you fully expect that anything said in the privacy of your own home remain private and since she is unable to comply, she is unable to remain in your employ. When the protesting begins, as it will, be sure to enlighten her to the manner in which her disclosures were used. Make her aware that that sort of disloyalty and disrespect will not be tolerated and that her services are no longer needed. And that her lack of good judgement are resulting in a lack of notice and severance on your part. Please don't forget to add that in light of the situation, you will absolutely not be able to give her a favorable reference for possible future employers.

After all, one good phkn deserves another. Or two, as the case may be.

I'd let her go quietly to the new port. In about two weeks I'd take the thread, put it in a bottle and throw it into the water letting it float over to the new port and into the hands of the new captain.

YOU CAN NOT TELL HER OR ANY OTHER PEOPLE ABOUT WHAT SHE DID!!!! If you do you will be hearing from her phknlwr and it will not be good for you. If some one ever calls for a reference you are technically ONLY allowed to say she worked for me from time x to time y. Large companies ussually have a division that handles JUST this. Technically you can not even say that they were great employees...... Go figure.....

Put your best foot forward!

How about signing on to the message board and posting a reply saying that you are her boss and that you know who she is.. She won't know for sure if it is really you or not, but it will make her feel pretty unconfortable..

Of course there is the cure all. Get on your speedboat with the Mrs., rev the engines really high (no silent choice) and do the wild thing on the sun pad. All the while both of you (at the same time) yell obscenities at the two phkn boats.

Oh yeah!

Meanwhile the Lawyer is disguising his post to misrepresent what the thread is about. This in order to suit HIS NEEDS

He twisted it to his advantage and post it, not in the Off Topic section, but admits that he has to disguse it to put it in an area he knows is not appropriate for his story

what if OSO reads this ??

should the Board gods sink the whole damn shipyard ???
Boat is out of line!! But the Captain is not setting a good example for the on looking sailors by sailing into the wrong harbor in order to get a bigger audiance to watch him make boat walk the gang plank

BoatMe, there are no misrepresentations. The truth is far more surreal. I have indeed heard from the Gods and, after pleading my case, they have agreed to allow me very little additional time to receive advice from the members in this section of the shipyard. I have received plenty of excellent advice from the members of this marina and will scuttle this ship in due course. There was never a desire to garner attention to watch Boat walk the plank. On the contrary, there are patrons with excellent experience in all different areas and I sought (and received) the advice I was seeking. I promise, you shall have your blessed GD turf back to you, employment issue free, in no time.

I don't know about your labor laws but here, if you confronted her with it on company time, she could sue you for workplace harassement. If you told her new employer about it and he confronted her in any negative way, she could sue you or at the very least bring major headaches your way. Same goes for the nanny. My suggestion to you would be to just let her leave, then post a new message to her on the message board that you know about what has been said and you are truely disappointed in her and thought her of higher character but were obviously mistaken. Remember, her friends will read it too. Have your wife read the message in question to the nanny and then read your message to her as well. She will probably hang herself right then and there.
