not anyone else.
I think people who intentionally try to get other's fired are piles of poop too but I wouldn't blame me losing my job on anyone but me. The girl made a decision to react to a rude person by being rude herself. That decision had consequences, the girl is getting her 15 minutes of fame but she also lost her job.
Her actions got her fired, not any scapegoat you name. This was avoidable.
I didn't say anyone deserved anything, I'm not the judge of either of them. The idea of giving people what they deserve just because you think so is a marxist idea, "each to his own ability, each to his own need". People in a free society are responsible, self reliant, and accountable for their actions. People in a free society only deserve what they earn. You say, "oh, she didn't deserve that, that's not fair". Life isn't fair. We are created equal and given the right to pursue happiness but not guaranteed an equal result of happiness.
You ask, "How entitled must you be". I'm not entitled to anything but life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Do you think the waitress was entitled to a tip. I know, She had to work so hard to carry people food and she deserves more money. Personally I'd rather pay less at a buffet and carry my own darn food.
The individual who refuses to defend his rights when called by his Government, deserves to be a slave, and must be punished as an enemy of his country and friend to her foe. - Andrew Jackson
