Pizza Joint Waitress Fired for Trashing Customers on Facebook
According to the Charlotte Observer, a UNC-Charlotte student was fired from her waitress job for complaining about restaurant customers on her Facebook profile. Nearly a week ago, a couple had a three-hour lunch at Brixx Pizza. Their leisurely lunch caused Ashley Johnson to work an hour late, and on top of that, they only left her a $5 tip. Johnson felt that was unfair and vented on Facebook. "Thanks for eating at Brixx, you piece of s--t camper," she wrote on her profile. Days later, the restaurant's management called Johnson in and fired her for violating two company policies, which included "casting the restaurant in a negative light on social networks."
The 22-year-old Johnson claims she didn't think a small comment would cause such a big stir. If that's true, they're not teaching kids anything in college these days. Posting to Facebook is a very public act, even if your privacy settings are tight. And readers certainly can't say we didn't warn them. [From: the Charlotte Observer
