Facebook fail: Should waitress have been fired for this post?
FINDLAY, Ohio (WTOL) – A waitress in Ohio learned the power of social media.
According to WTOL, Kristen Kelly was laid off from her job at Texas Roadhouse after posting to Facebook.
“I just said, ‘If you come into a restaurant and spend $50 or more, you should be able to tip appropriately for that,” Kelly said.
She soon learned the bad tipper was a former classmate, who was friends with her on Facebook.
“I was mad. It was a Friday night and I made $60 because I had several people that night who weren’t tipping appropriately. More than one time, people spent $50 or more and they tipped five or six. That’s not okay,” said Kelly.
Kelly said she never mentioned a specific customer or Texas Roadhouse in her post.
However, the customer printed off the post and brought it to the attention of Kelly’s manager.
