Feeling swindled by a cheap tip? Social networking sites are not the place to broadcast your blowup.

Ashley Johnson was furious. The Charlotte Observer reports that the 22-year-old waited on a couple for three hours at one of the city’s Brixx Pizza locations, keeping Johnson at the restaurant an hour after she was supposed to clock out.

Johnson’s reward from the customers? An Abraham Lincoln, prompting her to call out the couple on her Facebook profile.

Despite its slogan “Get Fired Up!” — Brixx Pizza was not at all pleased. Once the restaurant learned of the post, Johnson went from serving wood-fired pizza, to just plain fired.
