It was not a good holiday for two employees in separate cases of workplace mistakes.
From KTUL in Tulsa, Oklahoma: “Starbucks says they fired a barista who printed “PIG” on five coffee cups ordered by a police officer on Thanksgiving. The police chief at Kiefer Police Department, a community just outside Tulsa, said the officer was picking up drinks for their dispatchers as a “thank you” for their hard work. Starbucks and the barista who printed the label reached out to the Kiefer Police Department and apologized for the incident.”
Separately, Newsweek reports it fired a reporter whose name was on a story that falsely said President Trump spent Thanksgiving “tweeting and golfing” when he was actually in Afghanistan serving up dinner to U.S. troops and speaking with them.
