Honesty among peers

Recently, a former Best Buy employee sued the company because one of their employees said "he sucked." The employee said this when asked for a reference of the guy who supposedly sucked.

This is where we Gen Xers sometimes get into trouble. And I'm sure it was an Xer who made the comment. A Boomer would have eloquently said something that made the suckiness of the employee very clear, without ever saying so. And an Xer would just come out and say it.

Is it possible that Best Buy could win the lawsuit if they indeed could prove the employee sucked?

The employee may have sucked, but this blog rules. Keep up the good work
