A college student was reportedly fired from her job at Cafe 72 in Ewing after trying to find coverage so she could attend the funeral of a Michael Sot. Sot, the designated driver for his friends, was one of the TCNJ students involved in an accident caused by an allegedly drunk driver..
Text messages between the student and her manager, "Katie," have gone viral. After the employee tells "Katie" she is trying to find coverage to attend the funeral service, the manager responds with messages that included "just don't come back" and "I like you but I'm sick of all staff not taking their job seriously and just f***ing expect me to cover all your shifts."
The restaurant posted an apology on Facebook before deleting their page, saying the messages were "displayed completely out of context" and that the employee "was not fired."
