CHARLOTTE, N.C. & mdash - A North Carolina waitress is out of a job after griping on her Facebook page about the bad tip she got from a lingering table of customers.
The Charlotte Observer reported Monday that Ashley Johnson, 22, felt slighted after spending three hours waiting on a couple at Brixx Pizza who left only a $5 tip.
So she blasted the couple on her Facebook page while also mentioning the restaurant.
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.
