Don’t Like Your New Job? Complaining on Social Media Could Get You Fired

Published

 on

Have you ever gone on social media to complain about a job you don’t like? Stop it! It could get you fired.

Texas teen, Cella, found this out the hard way.

She got fired even before she started her new job, after she went on Twitter to share how unexcited she was about the job, Daily Mail reports. She had just been hired at a pizza parlour  called Jet’s Pizza in Mansfield, Texas.

‘Ew I start this f*** a** job tomorrow,” she tweeted.

CELLA ONEUnfortunately, her new boss, Robert Waple, saw the tweet and subsequently tweeted back: “And….no you don’t start that FA job today! I just fired you! Good luck with your no money, no job life!”

Cella TwoWaple had reportedly opened his Twitter account in 2009, and the second tweet ever on the account was his reply to Cella.

He found out about Cella’s tweet because one of his employees had told him about it.

After Cella was fired, several of Waple’s former employees tweeted comforting words to her, stating that working at Jet’s Pizza wasn’t too great anyway.

    Loooool!! Complaining on social media is usually not a great idea. But did her boss expect her to tweet about how amazing the job is? No one likes to work at a fast food chain, they only do it cos they desperately need money.

    That snitch of an employee is the evil one. Did they have to report to the boss? And I’m sure that person was one of this comforting the girl when she got fired! Ugh! America work place filled up with fake pple. I’m a witness.

    When I bitch about work on Social Media, I use Yoruba and pidgin and I don’t directly reference work. But now, I just don’t talk about work on public forums. It’s not a smart move! I’d rather vent privately to friends and family

    The lesson here is if you have something bad to say about your work, never post it online because there are many eyes that might be following you. Better keep it to yourself or quit if you want.
