Getting fired when we are this close to Christmas is not something you would want to hear. Well that's exactly what happened in Virginia, USA. When placing an order for a Pizza online, two boys from Virginia put in a special request for a joke to be written inside the box. Now, having worked in the catering industry, you need to full fill customer requests in order to keep the customer happy. The Pizza Hut employee obliged and wrote a joke inside the pizza box.
The joke read 'What do a pizza delivery driver and a gynaecologist have in common? They both have to smell it but neither of them gets to eat it' We actually thought, this was a good joke but of course the mother of the two boys was not pleased and found it to be inappropriate.
The mother told WJLA, that her sons placed the order online and as a special request, asked for a joke to be written inside the box. As we see it again, the employee obliged with the request.
The upset mother takes it upon herself to post an image of the joke on Facebook to highlight her disgust, which you know went viral. What she did not expect was a backlash from the public.
Some went on to say "I hope you see it in that big, black heart of yours to call back and explain that you aren't upset. Days before Christmas you got someone fired." as that's what actually happened.
The mother responded on the Facebook post which has now been deleted, 'It's an inappropriate joke. There's a time and place for everything. My pizza box is not one of them. It's a lesson learned.'
She also called the restaurant and complained which led to the Pizza Hut employee getting fired. The employee also called the mother to apologize, yet that fell on deaf ears and was still fired.
