I want to believe this story isn’t true, but it appears that this tweet (saying Memphis seems like a lame place) upset the guy’s client so much that he ended up getting fired. Apparently some thought it lacked respect. In my view it’s just dumb anyone would get “in trouble” for this… but even still, he should thank his boss for freeing him from working for such a lame company.
At worst, it just wasn’t polite. But, at best, I think Memphis–even FedEx who must have reason to want to be there–should take this opportunity to help explain to this guy what’s so great about Memphis. If he thinks it sucks–it’s probably for a reason. Maybe he didn’t get a good view… maybe he’s wrong, maybe he’s right. Plus, maybe he’ll still think it sucks–can’t he believe this? People should value criticism in almost every case.
Get your popcorn… but realize, it’s not interactive (but you can comment here).
