UR FIRD LOL SCKS 2 B U


Nothing says '21st Century' like e-pink slips. A jewelry shop in Cardiff, England sacked an employee at home with a migraine. With a text message.

Katy Tanner thinks they should have told her to her face; the company defends that it tried repeatedly to contact her, including through her boyfriend. Wow. Way to put him in hot water...

The message itself was not abbreviated: "We will not require your services anymore...Thank you for your time with us."

Ian Besbie, the store director, supplanted that texting was part of "youth culture". Wow. Again.

I know one or two people *cough* McCall! *cough* that live to text-message, but this is ridiculous.

Wow.

    Holy Smokes!

    That's both terribly heinous and incredibly awesome.
