The day before a Texas woman started her new job, she tweeted “Ew, I start this F*%#ing A*% job tomorrow” followed by seven “thumbs down” emojis. When her soon-to-be boss caught wind, he tweeted back, “No you don’t start that FA job today! I just fired you! Good luck with your no-money, no-job life!”

Note: Federal labor law does give employees (at both union and nonunion shops) the right to use social media to collectively discuss wages and work conditions. But you can still discipline workers who drop such unsolicited e-bombs on your company.
