That some douche can get a chick fired for blowing off a bit of steam on her Facebook page? Seriously?

It's not like she was reporting something she had done, just that someone under-tipped on a large-ish food bill and she was annoyed because she probably only makes minimum wage and depends on tips to make a decent living.

Blowing off steam on an internet page is not unhygenic, and doesn't harm anyone since the poor-tipper was not identified.

I would much rather have a server who blows off steam on Facebook than one who actually takes it out on the patrons.

That's not justice served - that's just trolling, causing financial hardship for a girl working her way through community college.

You're making a lot of assumptions there Koatanga... unless of course you know the girl personally.

That being said, we're only hearing her side of the story (in a limited form of "I hate getting small tips.") Who's to say she was a good server?

Do I think it required sending in the feedback to Chili's? Probably not. And I especially think it was tacky to show it off publicly that they did so.

One: Have your facebook completely private
Two: Use a nickname only your friends know
Three: Never list your place of employment

or

One: Don't have a facebook



That said, I know I'd be taken to HR for some of the things I've said on these forums, but it would take quite a while to actually track my comments to me.

I don't think so. Chili's is a chain restaurant employing servers who are just out of high school, so I really doubt they will be paying more than minimum wage + tips. Heck, I knew someone who worked for Denny's who was 40 and made min + tips. It's pretty common.

I am assuming she didn't actually spit in anything, nor intended to spit in anything, because she said "next time you give me a low tip", which she won't discover until after the next time they have finished their meal and paid for the bill. So it's an empty threat at best, which means it's just blowing off steam. Maybe she wasn't emo enough to post "Got a lousy tip on a big table. FML." so she expressed it that way.

Than there's the assumption of douchebag. This is a person posting on 4chan who is "shocked" by someone making an obviously empty threat to spit in an unknown person's food. I'm sorry, if you are "shocked and disgusted" by as little as a Facebook post, WTF are you doing on 4chan? Dude's a troll pretending to be "shocked" just for lols, and ended up getting someone fired, assuming the response form Chili's is genuine.

Here's a shot of the troll in action:

Koatanga, while there's nothing wrong with blowing off steam, doing so by making threats - be them idle or not - about what you're going to do to customers at your workplace on a massively popular and fully public website that also has a link to your exact workplace on it is simply doing it wrong.

No company - especially a large, nationwide chain - is going to have their image publicly tarnished like that, even if the person is a good employee and "just blowing off steam."

If you are stupid enough to link your Facebook profile to your work place AND indicate that you would do something disgusting to a paying customer's food, joke or not, you DESERVE to get fired.

Pretty much. People forget that Facebook is a public place: Saying anything there is different than saying it loudly in public only in the sense that there will be more people listening, forever.

She would have had less chances of being fired if she had said that right in front of the bad tipper.

No. Warn the person, have her remove the comment from her Facebook, etc - that's what you do. You don't fire someone just because some dumbass troll decided to dob her in for lols.

Penny talks about spitting in Sheldon's food on multiple occasions. It doesn't mean she's ever going to do it, or would even consider doing it to anyone. It's a joke. A meme. The real idiots here are the liar who pretended to be offended and Chili's for buying it.

If firing people for making an obvious joke on Facebook is commonplace, then I am even more happy I moved out of the US.

So basically, you've been offended by 4chan at some point and have taken this hatred to heart.

Grow up a bit. It's pretty clear you have absolutely no idea how corporate image works.

Good job citing some random TV show as proof that you're right, though. Television - the sitcom in particular - is always based on 100% factual and realistic situations that you see constantly occurring in real, everyday life.

I said it already, dont have your facebook set to public, if you must, dont list ur workplace... If you must, then dont say anything that can get you fired...

If she had her facebook set to private, so only her friends could see it, she could vent all she wanted without risk of it exploding on ur face...

So yeah, while i dont like that the chick lost her job to an internet troll, the fault lies entirely at her feet.
