Teen Fired for Calling Job 'Boring' on Facebook

A teenager was fired from her job after calling it boring on Facebook.

Kimberley Swann made the comment about Ivell Marketing and Logistics Limited in Clacton, Essex, England where she had begun working as an administrator.

She claims she did not name the company online and was happy in the job.

The 16-year-old was fired with "immediate effect" after posting the negative comment on the social networking site.

"They were just being nosey, going through everything. I think it is really sad, it makes them look stupid that they are going to be so petty," she said.

Boss Steve Ivell told Sky News Online Swann posted comments about her job and invited other staff members to read them.

"Had Miss Swann put up a poster on the staff noticeboard making the same comments and invited other staff to read it there would have been the same result," he explained.
