He would never have been fired, except he was stupid enough to post a video of it on Youtube.
And that set forth a chain of events that led to the door of his employer.
In other words, he was an idiot for not just leaving it at the drive-thru window.
WOW! you KNOW NOTHING about The Blaze, do you?!
The Blaze is a Glenn Beck creation run by Scott Baker. It is in no way a left wing tool.
True, but it being made public gave them no choice because of how he conducted himself. Had he made his point in a reasonable manner, not abusive and condescending as he was, he may not have been fired. But he went overboard and that's what did him in.
It's bad enough for the CFO of a corporation to post a video of himself on Youtube, especially under such circumstances, it's unpardonable to show intolerance and overbearing disgust toward someone who isn't responsible for corporate policy or decisions. He should know better. He didn't, and he got what he deserved.
Did this guy learn nothing from the Bus Monitor bullies? My God, that was only about a month ago! And yet a grown man still posted a video of himself berating a sweet young lady. Just like those brats posted a video of themselves berating a sweet old lady. Actions have consequences.
And boo-hoo about the death threats. I’ve gotten death threats from friends on Facebook! And all I’ve done is express an opinion on the new Batman movie. We live in a strange world.
“He would never have been fired, except he was stupid enough to post a video of it on YouTube.”
I guess the moral of the story is that if you are going to do something stupid, film it and then post it to YouTube, you are probably better off doing something of the “Hey Bubba, hold my beer and watch this...” variety.
Then you only have to worry about the dumb stunt killing you, not about having your whole life and two vocations ruined as this guy has done. So much time left to ponder, “What was I thinking.....?”
What happens at the drive-thru should stay at the drive-thru
Your exactly right, he had to brag to the world on a subject that he used very poor judgment in doing as well as then bragging about it. He got his come upens.
