This week, recruitment firm Media Contacts revealed that a recent recruit to its job-seeking ranks had been 'forced to resign' from a 'well-known' PR agency after blasting her bosses on nostalgia website Friends Reunited.
The woman - described as a 26-year-old account manager for a 'well-known PR agency' - used a posting on the popular website to describe her boss as a 'bitch from hell'.
For good measure she also described her employers as a 'bunch of cowboys'.
Media Contacts has urged anyone posting messages on websites to show caution before repeating such a blunder.
Still, the tale caused PRWeek a few moments of astonishment as we mused on how any PR firm could possibly be described in such terms.
