A Pizza Hut employee in Virginia USA, has lost their job - simply because they fulfilled a customer’s special request.
The unnamed customer said her two sons (aged 12 and 15) asked for a joke to be written on the pizza box when they placed an order online.
The employee duly obliged and gave them this joke:
“What do a pizza delivery driver and a gynaecologist have in common?”
The problem was that the punchline to the joke is a bit rude. So the boys' mother complained on a local radio station, and the employee was dismissed from their job!
But not everyone agrees with Pizza Hut’s decision. Several people took to the restaurant’s Facebook page and set up a hashtag to demand #JusticeForPizzaGirl.
We will watch this case closely and report back if the unfortunate employee gets her job back!
Just in case you were wondering about the punchline of the joke: “They both have to smell it, but neither of them get to eat it.”
