We’ve all heard the phrase “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all,” and it’s truer now more than ever. In the world of social media, despite the fact that you may not have any twitter followers and despite the fact that no one is replying to your tweets, doesn’t necessarily mean no one is seeing them. Especially a future employer.
This particular woman was only a day away from starting her brand spankin’ new job, but screwed it up because she just had to let everyone know she wasn’t that into it.
It probably wasn’t so much her sentiment as it was the actual language used that terminated her employment. Or maybe it was the amount of thumbs down that really annoyed her almost-new boss. Regardless, he made sure to let her know that not only he saw her message, but also delivered one of his own.
And….no you don’t start that FA job today! I just fired you! Good luck with your no money, no job life!
Think he was annoyed? Before this back and forth went viral, the employer’s (Robert Waple) twitter was public but it looks as though he himself has learned a lesson as well and protected his account by not making it public.
After the loud-mouthed, now jobless employee was fired, she made sure to let her followers know she wasn’t sweating it too much. Although now since the story is everywhere, it might be tough for this girl to get any sort of job in the future with anyone who has an internet connection.
