Default Can I please bitch slap the nosey and sticky fingered?

So, I received a written warning today at work for the wallpaper on my phone. The thing is, I don't loan my phone to anyone and I'm not sure how this happened other than someone was looking over my shoulder while I've used it at lunch, which I'm not in the building for. My wallpaper is Lucy V and looks like this.



I even asked what my wallpaper on my phone looked like and asked for a description. My super couldn't provide one and responded with "We've been informed that its exceedingly vulgar and that's enough. I dont need to see it."
This is a serious Wtf situation and I could use some advice before I approach human resources.

well in my mind..2 things..1: if they dont have physical evidence then it is hearsay so they have no grounds. 2: if you are out side the company again they have no grounds...so i wouldve told your super to pull his head in

Someone could just be trolling you too, saying that you have a wallpaper that is much more vulgar than it is.

Also your supervisor sucks by not wanting to confirm things with you or get actual evidence over some apparent "tip" they got that you have a "vulgar wallpaper" on your phone.

Go find the staff rules and check procedures - eg, do you have to have a 3 verbal warnings before a written one?
Which clause in your contract are they using to justify this written warning?
And lastly, ask them for proof of your misconduct.
Fatmantis was bang on when he called it hearsay.

Edit:Are you in a union? Can you speak to a union rep?

Can you raise this with someone higher than your immediate supervisor?

This is obviously a troll coworker. let's hope they don't follow you home, watch you masturbating and report the boss. 'cause, actually, that is what has happened. if there is no clause in your contract that forbids you to use "vulgar" wallpapers on your phone (?????), i think your boss is somewhat ...easily fooled around? Also, if this has not happened inside the company building...what's the problem?
moreover, this is just hearsay. only in china you get written warnings for an hearsay.
let's hope next time someone doesn't report to the boss that you smuggle drugs, or you will be in serious problems...
I'd be pretty pissed off. Manage this in a polite manner and i think everyone will know who is the "vuolgar" guy.
i second that: Can you raise this with someone higher than your immediate supervisor?
P.s. pretty gal, btw.

You have everything you need right here. If the complaint is legit, approach them and demand proof of the claim, or remove the strike against you.

Simple as that.

I just checked this after returning from HR. Apparently, had received 3 verbal warnings last week for reading at my desk during business hours of 10:45 through 12. I fully admitted to the guilt of reading... a procedure manual, which was in the picture that was taken by a coworker (the likes of which I know who at this time, the super) with an obvious FISERV logo on the cover of the material. I also surrendered my phone, which the HR rep opened, looked at the wallpaper and then promptly ask the super to describe it. She couldn't. The rep dismissed me and said they were dropping things not only because there is zero evidence, but, because there are not legitimate grounds for misunderstanding what I was reading nor the fact that my phone doesn't have anything on it worse than what is found in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

Some people are just off.

Good to hear things worked out for you.

This is why I prefer working construction.

Good, man. Next time you might want to get a couple of rabid raccons and set them free in those people houses, nighttime, that is.

Well, the thing is, I have no clue what the grounds for this was. The photos were completely stupid as I'm holding the same tech manual I'm required to have for my job. If it were a Codex for GW then I could admit to the guilt to derping around on the job, but, red cover with large gold embossed letters makes it obvious what I'm reading. Secondly, I never signed the verbal warnings receipts nor presented with them. Third, poor Lucy isn't even vulgar in appearance... in that pic.
