Applebee employees fired for complaint about customers on Facebook

A former Applebee worker (@evilherbivorre) has gone viral on TikTok after sharing his experience of being fired from his first job following a post on Facebook.

The worker, who had been at the restaurant for three years, was reportedly never messaged and had an immaculate record. However, she says a particularly difficult Sunday led to her eventual sacking.

@evilherbivorre In reply to @nvmitsbethany I have more crazy stories about when I was a waiter/bartender if you want to hear it! 🍎🐝 #storytime #howigotfired #server #waitress #barkeeper #serverstorytime #serviceindustry #serviceindustryproblems ♬ Original sound – Stash

“It was a particularly busy Sunday, right, and I was moved from one cut to the next. Then these two people come in with their babies… They start out with a bad attitude from the start,” she recalls.

The TikToker says the guests were a mother and daughter, and one of them was a server at a nearby IHOP, which @evilherbivorre deduced from the client’s uniform. She claims they were extremely cold to her, returned her food twice and made a mess with her children.

However, the situation escalated when the TikTokers made a mistake in returning their change.

“I’m bad at math… So instead of saying, ‘Hey, I think you’re a little screwed up with your change,’ they leave me a dime for the tip,” she explains in the clip.

Later that night, she finally vented on Facebook about the difficult interaction with the two customers. The mom, who happened to see the post, then reportedly left a lengthy comment telling her she was going to get in trouble and calling her a “spoiled little slut.”

According to @evilherbivorre, she was fired the next day.

“They tell me that the IHOP mother reported me to HR and sent a screenshot of my post, and that it’s against policy and the bosses want to get rid of me,” she says. “What, Applebees, you’re a failing company, you should probably keep the employees who actually care about their jobs.”

Though she feels she deserved to be reprimanded for her Facebook post, the TikToker believes her firing was unfair. β€œI put all my time and effort into it. I would do Open to Close, Doubles, I would do whatever these damn people asked me to do,” she says in the video.

However, the TikToker shared a final twist at the end of the story, claiming she returned the favor.

“I’ve never freaked out like this in my life and just thought if I go under, you go under,” says @evilherbivorre of the clients that led to her losing her job. β€œI marched to the IHOP because we shared the same parking lot. I told the manager everything that happened, showed him the post, showed him the comment. Told them about my experience serving this person in uniform. As far as I know Homegirl got fired.”

The story, which was published in two parts on Jan. 26, amassed a total of 446,000 views on TikTok.

In the comments, users criticized both the Applebee and IHOP servers.

“What I want to know is how the mom found your Facebook post? There are stalkers,” said one commenter.

“I like to call it apple fleas,” added a second.

“The server mom MUST have made a real effort to find your FB post and quite frankly she’s so embarrassed,” remarked a third.

“Not all workers are in solidarity,” added another commenter.
