But this is. In a Melbourne café I overheard a manager talking to a supervisor. “I see Vanessa is going to Europe for a hen’s party late next month. Has she applied for annual leave?”
“No. I didn’t even know. How did you know?”
“The company has HR go through everyone’s Facebook each week and we get a report.”
