    I accidentally texted my boss complaints about him and then wrote out an apology, and he replied “ok,” so I’m not sure how I stand.

    I went to a Starbucks a few months back and asked for a Horchata Almond milk Frappuccino, and the girl looked at me, after ringing it up, and says, "What kind of milk is it made with?" THEN proceeds to make it with 2%.

    Ironically, before Jimmy even started singing it and the band joining in - Everybody Dance Now! was already my favorite #, because that person did what we’ve all wanted to do, but only saw in the movies! So BRAVO for making our dreams come true, but sorry you got fired for it!!! 🤪🤪🤪 As for the Dunkin Donuts vs. Starbucks - unless they had signed that it was against store policy, I would’ve gotten an attorney and then I would’ve said, “SHOW ME THE MONEY” 💰💰💰💰

    saw a firing right before my eyes in Walmart when one of the staffers didn't realize he was on his headset and was telling the guy over there to check out the ass on the redhead in produce.He kept talking and the manager was running to get to him to shut him up.

    They can't fire you for bringing in a Dunkin Donuts coffee into your job at Starbucks anymore than they can fire you for wearing shoes you bought at Target into work at Walmart. Come on... that's just common sense.

      That was my first thought as well. I think that was just a gag answer that was used cause it sounded like a comedic situation.

    Jimmy, your a sellout. Trump hater. Bible Hater. Jesus Christ Hater. We are the same age, and I want to knock out your teeth, in the middle of Detroit, to show God and this Country, that you do not stand for Shit. A little Biblically Illiterate Wimp. Don't let me catch your ass in Detroit.

    Who would add their bosses on Facebook, you know you will vent about it. I vent all the time, or most of the time, and I am friends with certain people that I work with, and they'll never tell, since they like to vent, too. I don't say bad things about work, it's more like I vent that I live 30 minutes from work, and I work crappy hours, for crappy amount of money. Stuff like that. Etc

    We played a game at school where someone would pull and celebrity name out of the box, describe them, and people would have to guess who it was the fastest. Someone pulled out Jimmy Fallon's name and said "He has a talk-show" and then three or four people automatically said "Jimmy Fallon!".
    So I guess Jimmy Fallon is officially the most recognizable talk-show host 👍

    1. Isnt Wal-mart like a fun place, where they have a person who wishes you when you walk in? so why would you get fired for saying everybody dance now?
    2. Doesnt Starbucks give you free coffee, especially when you work there? I worked for a brief moment in starbucks, had free coffee.

    When working at Wendy's my hubby got yelled at because he came back for his lunch break with a subway meal. His boss told him he can't bring their competitors meal into the establishment. Later that night we looked at the rules of employment and low and behold it is mentioned right there that while on the clock they are not to consume their competitors meal
