Waitress Fired For Complaining About Tip On Facebook

A North Carolina waitress was recently fired for posting a status on her Facebook griping about the $5 tip she got from a couple who sat at their table for three hours. The waitress says the customers kept her at work an hour after she was supposed to clock out.

Ashley Johnson, 22, felt slighted after waiting on the couple at Brixx Pizza. So she blasted the couple on Facebook, calling them cheap and mentioning the restaurant by name.

Brixx officials told Johnson a couple of days later that she was being fired because she violated a company policy banning workers from speaking disparagingly about customers and casting the restaurant in a bad light on a social network.

Johnson says she has apologized to Brixx and is looking for a new job.
