A Scottish Homebase worker has been fired from her job after tweeting abusive messages about customers on her personal Twitter. Kayleigh McGhee, from Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, clearly runs a very active Twitter account because she's updating her followers on every last aspect of her life... and its just taken an interesting turn. The manager of her DIY store found her account, filled with tweets about how she wished all her customers would die and calling them 'ugly f***s'. She posted a tweet letting her followers know with the caption: "When u get fired from ur job and this is the evidence." Her former managers had gone to some thoughtful length to let Kayleigh know exactly why she was being let go, screenshotting and printing the offending posts and made them into a booklet for their meeting! Lovely.

McGhee clearly didn't her work in customer service, writing: "Also how rude when customers ask for help do I look like a fucking plumber or electrician to you fuck OFF it’s a DIY store get out of my face." In another post, she also said: "How annoying when customers ask how much something is why don’t you take it to the fucking till and you’ll find out because I don’t fucking know." She also used the account to admit contract breaches like taking an hour’s break when she was only permitted half an hour.
Ray, Kayleigh’s father, has stepped in and gone on the record to defend his daughter’s actions. He told The Scottish Sun: "There was no way to make the connection between Kayleigh and Homebase at the time she was ‘resigned’, therefore she believes it was harsh. Especially since the decision was made by head office based on Twitter use and not her Homebase work or ethic. She was actually given a customer service excellence badge whilst in her customer-facing role."
