Working in customer service is one of the most hellish sectors of industry. You have to smile and grit your teeth no matter how insane, mean, or unreasonable the people across from you are. Naturally, a lot of people turn to social media to blow off steam when their shift is over.
Meet Twitter user @Kayleighmcgheek, who shared with their followers that they'd been let go from their job—a job that allegedly cited her angry tweets as grounds for their dismissal.
They even printed them out:
People who have worked in customer service can totally relate to the hate:
i am definitely going to get fired for something twitter related at some point in my life— hol (@hollytem) March 18, 2018
My question is, how did they find out? I talk shit about my job all the time 😂😂— 𝒜𝓎𝓁𝒾𝓃 (@aylinrodriguuez) March 19, 2018
But other people aren't so sympathetic.
Most seem to think wishing death on customers should be a fireable offense, no matter how annoying they are, and they're piling on Kayleigh. It's led to a couple of hilarious arguments:
How can you make a joke about this? It’s not even funny in the first place.— Love, Simon (Sayers-Franklin) (@SimonSFranklin) March 18, 2018
I actually have and still do. 4 years and I understand there can be frustrations but any normal person has a grumble in their head and gets on with it. Most retail/customer service jobs you get back what you put in. If you’re nice (surprise surprise) the customers are too!— Love, Simon (Sayers-Franklin) (@SimonSFranklin) March 18, 2018
This guys obviously lying about working retail if he says customers are nice if you're nice— Cort Legweak (@Cort_Armstrong) March 19, 2018
Lol calm down buddy it's called a job you do while in school, twitter is for talking about feelings, might want to step off your high horse— Cort Legweak (@Cort_Armstrong) March 19, 2018
People who agree with Kayleigh seem to be enjoying suggesting everyone else "chill," but they're definitely not going to:
I’m pretty astonished people here are suggesting union representation, legal representation, or even citing social media impersonation. Best advice to Kayleigh is simple - don’t work in retail, or in any job in which you have to daily deal with, you know, actual people.— Philip Nolan (@philipnolan1) March 19, 2018
My employer has a social media agreement. While I kept my socials private, I still had to keep “My thoughts and opinions are my own and do not represent my employer”, in my bio. 🤷🏼♀️ honestly though, if I saw an employee talking like this, I would relieve them of their pain— So_Fetch_MallyB (@Youlikeaverage) March 19, 2018
Dudes, Kayleigh's already been fired! They get it!
But if this tweet didn't make you laugh, you're maybe one of those problem customers?? What do you think?
