This Teen Got Fired On Twitter Because Some People Still Don't Understand What Not To Post On Social Media — PHOTOS
Most of us have, at some point in our lives, had jobs that sucked—jobs that we knew we were going to hate before they even started but that we took anyway because, hey, money—so I think we can sympathize with the following Twitter user’s lack of enthusiasm about starting a new stint at a pizza place. What she did about it, however, well—that’s where things got sticky. A Texas teen named Cella was less than thrilled to be starting a new job at Jet’s Pizza in Mansfield, Texas, and took to Twitter to express her displeasure, writing, “Ew I start this f*ck ass job tomorrow,” followed by, not one, but seven thumbs down emojis. Unfortunately, a soon-to-be coworker passed the Tweet along to her new boss, Robert Waple. Waple was quick to end her suffering, tweeting, “And....no you don't start that FA job today! I just fired you! Good luck with your no money, no job life!”
On the one hand, I feel sorry for this girl; I’m assuming she wouldn’t have taken this job in the first place if she didn’t need it. On the other hand, it’s pretty naïve at this point to put something on Twitter and expect it not to get around to the person you least want to see it. I guess the lesson here is that you can complain about your job until you’re blue in the face, but for Pete’s sake, keep it off social media.
The shenanigans began with a since deleted tweet from Cella:
Her boss responded the next morning:
Ugh, that was way harsh, Tai.
Cella, overcome with grief, took to using sad emojis:
In the days that have followed, Cella's story has been retweeted thousands of times, and the lady herself has gained thousands of followers from all over the world. So maybe the lesson here is less "keep your personal thoughts off of Twitter" and more "do something stupid and become internationally famous!" Welcome to the golden age, friends.
