Getting fired can be a tough pill, especially when you’ve been fired for something you didn’t even do.
That’s what TikTok user Alexis Stuart (@alexisstuart67) claims happened at her job as a waitress when a table allegedly lied about something she said. What must have made the situation particularly frustrating for the TikToker is that she says she has worked at the restaurant for five years.
@alexisstuart67 I don’t think I’ll ever get over this, but New Year, new beginnings, I’m right ✨ #serverlife ♬ Original sound – user57461686816
In the clip, Stuart dances around a house holding what appears to be a bottle of white wine. A text overlay reads, “pov: you lost your job of 5 years because a table you didn’t even have or spoke to complained to your manager about something you told your table that didn’t even come out of your mouth.”
The Daily Dot has reached out to Stuart via TikTok comment for more information on her release.
There are a number of stories online about servers being fired from their jobs for seemingly less than conscientious reasons. In 2013, Gothamist reported on a New York server who was expected to foot the $735 bill for a table dined and barged at Rockefeller Center’s Pig ‘n’ Whistle pub.
USA Today also spoke to an Arkansas server who received a $4,400 tip from a table set to be shared with another server. However, restaurant management told Brandt that she would only receive 20% of the money she agreed to, and the rest would be split equally among the rest of the restaurant’s staff — which was not the case with any of her previous tips.
TikTokers who saw Stuart’s post shared their own stories of unjustified shootings at the restaurants they work at in the comments section.
User @canyonnbriand wrote: “It’s ok girl they fired me for the worst reason possible I was blamed lol like I literally complained about a server and he found out and said I did something which i would never do in my life no evidence nothing he only had a word about my bc at the time i was hosting.”
Another TikToker wrote: “I got fired because my colleague bought mine [OnlyFans] and showed it to my boss, they paid me to fire LMFAO.”
Someone who appeared to be a colleague of Stuart’s wrote in the comments: “I’m in shock!! You are a hard worker! And it will definitely succeed, cheer up girl, new blessings are coming your way!”
There were also others who urged Stuart to try to keep her job by rallying against management. As user @indianscout1901 said, “I wouldn’t go down without a fight!”
