‘If you can’t come to work that’s you quitting’:
Manager is fired over ‘heartless’ texts that she sent to a mother who couldn’t come to work after her son was put on life support
Crystal Reynolds Fisher of Michigan is living every mother’s nightmare. Her 18-year-old son is on life support after running a fever of 104 and doctors are still figuring out what caused his condition.
Like any mother would, Fisher called out of work so she could stay by her son’s side in the hospital. However, the reaction she received from her manager is more heartless than she ever could have expected.
On Saturday, Fisher uploaded screenshots of the text exchange to her Facebook page and the post was shared over 70,000 times. By Monday, the story had reached the Folk Oil corporate office and the manager was swiftly fired.
After learning that her manager was let go, Fisher told station WWMT all she had to say to her former boss is, “I pray for you.”
