This McDonald's employee definitely wasn't lovin' it.

The company told reporters Wednesday that an employee captured in a video luring a homeless man to the drive-through window in Detroit with a hamburger, and then throwing water in his face, has been fired.

"Hey, Willie. Come here. You want a sandwich?" the unnamed employee can be heard yelling before throwing the cup of water.

McDonald's franchisee Wise Finley said he was disturbed by the "inappropriate" incident and took action to fire the employee.

"This type of behavior is not tolerated in my organization. I expect my employees to treat everyone with dignity and respect, and this was unacceptable," Finley told the Detroit Free Press.

Kaitlyn Walls, a woman living in The Colony, Texas was fired from her new job before her first day even started.

The reason? The daycare center that was to be her new place of employment caught wind of her post on Facebook saying that she hates "working at daycares". She followed up that post with another saying "I just really hate being around a lot of kids" as she prepared for the first day of her job that requires her to be surrounded by children.

"It really was a big mistake," Walls said, telling CBS that she was just "venting".

Predictably, she has gotten a lot of hate from the internet about those comments as well. Walls vows to change her social media habits after learning from this, in hindsight, painfully obvious mistake.

This was a memo actually issued to the employees of QC Marts, an Iowa-based chain of convenience stores, back in March. The owner of the chain announced a contest in which employees would guess which of their number would be the next to get the proverbial ax. Four employees, who for some reason felt uncomfortable turning on their coworkers like rabid wolves, quit in protest. QC Marts denied them unemployment benefits, arguing they had quit voluntarily, until a judge ruled against the chain yeste

This guy is definitely not "lovin' it."

A McDonald's employee in St. Paul, Minnnesota went on a rampage this past weekend, and the whole thing was captured on video by one of the customers.

He storms back and forth knocking down everything in sight, leaving quite a mess while everyone else in the store watches.

The scene is a bit like the kid who tore through a dollar store last year, but with a lot more screaming and profanity.

He had just been fired, according to the uploader, which triggered the McMeltdown.

This isn't exactly the McDonald's experience depicted in their new "Pay With Lovin'" campaign.

A teenage girl with the Twitter handle “@Cellla_” did not want to go to work at her new job at Jet’s Pizza in Mansfield, Texas last week, so she Tweeted about it.

And now she doesn’t have to go, because she was fired.

Her would-be boss, Robert Waple, saw the tweet (thanks to one his employees), and he let her know himself that she didn’t have to bother showing up.





It seems like Robert is done with Twitter for while after this 15 seconds of fame. He hadn’t used his account since 2009, and he has since deleted all the tweets related to her firing.



“Made my point today,” he wrote. “I’ll check in again in 6 years.”

And Cella is seeing a lot of mixed reactions on her Twitter account now as the story spreads, but she just finds the whole thing so LOL.
