Here are people who know what it was like to work for a big failing company.

Company Fires Employee For Meme, Gets Trolled To Oblivion

This company managed to track down the Facebook activity of a discontented employee. The employee has posted a meme making fun of using company time for bathroom breaks, cause they made all the money while he didn't make sh*t. From there, the company calls him out, fires him, and then digs a deeper hole (for themselves) by blowing the whole thing further out of proportion.
