Daughter’s Facebook Brag Costs Her Family $80,000

March 4, 2014 Boston, Miami, The Dirty 196

THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, this story just hit the news and wanted your input on why women are so stupid to brag about everything on FB or IG? Is it a pop culture or low self esteem?  Dana Snay made the the biggest Facebook mistake ever. A daughter’s snarky status update has cost her father the $80,000 settlement he won in an age-discrimination lawsuit.  Patrick Snay, 69, was the headmaster at Gulliver Preparatory School in Miami for several years, but in 2010, the school didn’t renew his contract. Snay sued his former employer for age discrimination and won a settlement of $80,000 in November 2011. The agreement contained a standard confidentiality clause, prohibiting Snay or the school from talking about the case.  However, Snay’s daughter, Dana, now at Boston College and a part-time Starbucks barista, couldn’t resist bragging about the case on Facebook. “Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver,” she wrote. “Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.” One of the many “friends” she had on FB ratted on her and now her father has to pay the 80k back, since he signed paperwork that said he would never tell anyone.  Well, obviously he told his daughter.

That sucks.- nik
