Social media is pretty funny. Want an example? Look no further than Greg Heaslip, a security guard at the Arcadia Group in Britain.

All Greg wanted to do was take a vacation. Well, Greg, thanks to social media, you're probably getting that vacation... so why not come to Atlantic City.

There's lots to do! You can see a show, do some shopping, hit up the casinos, walk on the beach, have a couple five-star meals and classy drinks. Whatever you want, Greg. You've earned it.

In case you missed it, Greg's simple request to his boss has become a social media hit, because that boss accidentally forwarded the request to 3,500 employees. And then the internet exploded.
