It seems that people will never learn to be more cautious about what they post online.  One more person posted something they probably shouldn’t have and managed to get themselves fired.  On the up side of this story, it means that there will always be an endless supply of stories exactly like this to keep us all amused.  This one starts out when the California Pizza Kitchen changed their uniforms.  It used to be that they wore a red tie and a white button up shirt that were about the farthest thing from attractive.  They then changed the uniform to a black button up shirt with black pants, well that upset one employee.

Yes, that’s right, there was actually an employee upset about changing from that uniform.  Well instead of ranting in private, they went to the California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) twitter account and complained.  To be more specific they put, “@calpizzakitchen black button ups are the lamest shit ever!!!.” Not the most professional thing ever!!!”.  Well feeling a touch angered over the post CPK actually tracked him down and found out which branch he worked at.  The employee was then of course fired, I know, shocking.  Now to make matters worse, the former employee posted a YouTube video telling what happened for all the world to see.  I’m sure every restaurant in town will be just dying to hire him on now.
