A woman who was fired after accidentally sending a text message to her boss describing him as “a complete d***” has lost her application for unfair dismissal.

Louise Nesbitt was dismissed from her role as a office bookkeeper following the incident.

According to Mirror.com.uk, she claimed she sent the text to her boss by accident - rather than to he intended recipient, her daughter's boyfriend.

The full text described her boss 'Rob' as a "complete d***," adding: "we know this already so please try your best not to tell him that regardless of how you feel the need."

Immediately after realising the mistake, Ms Nesbitt sent a follow up text to her boss apologising and asking him to delete the message.

She wrote: "Rob, please delete without reading. I am so so so sorry. Xxx."

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Ms Nesbitt intended to send the text in January to her daughter's boyfriend.

He had been contracted to carry out plumbing work at the office where she worked.

In a third text, she said the message was down to her sense of humour.

Louise added: "That message came across so wrong. Rob ... that is not how I feel. My sense of humour is to exaggerate.

"It is so far out of context ... please forget it and just go on as normal."

She has now failed to convince a tribunal that the message was a light-hearted insult.

Ms Nesbitt, who had worked at a mineral exploration company in Perth for six years, lost a claim for unfair dismissal before Australia's industrial tribunal.

The tribunal ruled that the text was deeply offensive and was 'far from a light-hearted insult'.
