Brixx Pizza in North Carolina takes social media pretty seriously, because it fired a waitress after she complained on her Facebook page about a stingy couple who occupied a table for three hours and only left a $5 tip.
The woman’s mistake seems to be that she mentioned the restaurant by name in her post. Somehow it got back to management, and they fired her for violating a policy that forbids employees to trash talk customers.
The woman told the Daily Record that she has apologized to the restaurant and is looking for a new job.
By the way, our tipster Sean notes that this is an excellent Consumerist Bingo post because it features “tipping AND facebook! Now only if there was a Double Down in there.”
