A woman has been fired after her callous text messages to an employee whose son is on child support went viral.

Crystal Reynolds Fisher shared the exchange between her and a manager named Dawn, who worked at a Fork Oil store in Michigan.

Fisher messaged her 48 hours before her shift to let her know that she wouldn’t be coming to work because her son was ‘still on life support’.

I’m just letting u know my son is still on life support so until he is out of the bad I will not be able to make it to work. I can let u know as he starts to get better so that way I can return to work with no problems.

When Fisher insisted that she wasn’t ‘quitting’, Dawn said ‘if you don’t come to work that’s you quitting’.

Fisher eventually told Dawn that she was going to write to the corporate office, but that didn’t seem to phase Dawn.

I will not get into with you on here but I’ve been more than accommodating during this allowing schedule changes and such. There is no reason you can’t work and I will not tolerate drama. End of conversation.

If you aren’t there to work your shift tomorrow then I take that as you’ve quit.

Fisher shared the entire text exchange on her Facebook account and it received quite the response.



The gas company Fork Oil eventually got wind of the incident and, in a Facebook post of their own, confirmed that the manager had been let go.

We’d like to follow up on the issue brought to our attention recently regarding how an employee time off request was handled by one of our managers.

We investigated and have found that the situation was handled improperly and without the compassion that we value as a company. For that, we are very sorry.

As a result of this finding, we took quick action and that manager is no longer employed by PS Food Mart. We have also reaffirmed to our employee that she will be able to take all the time off that she needs during this difficult period. We’d like to thank the public for their concern.
