A Colorado waitress, upset after a customer didn’t leave a tip, was fired from for hatefully venting her frustration on social media.
Megan Olson, who goes by “megatron” on Twitter, posted the following tweet:
Several residents posted screenshots of the tweet on Texas Roadhouse – Greely’s Facebook page, requesting that the restaurant “send her packin’.”
And management obliged.
“Our managing partner was actually mowing his lawn when he was alerted,” said company spokesman Travis Doster. “He immediately rushed to the restaurant, met with the employee who posted this disgusting tweet and she was terminated.”
Olson, however, did post an apology on her Facebook page, writing:
“I wrote hurtful, inconsiderate, insensitive and careless words and I understand the amount of people I have offended by that. There are no excuses for what I have done. I sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, apologize to everyone for my momentary lack of judgment. I want you all to know that I do not actually feel this way.”
