A single mother lost her new job working at a daycare after posting her hatred for the gig on Facebook before even starting her first day.
‘I start my new job today, but I absolutely hate working at daycare,’ posted Kaitlyn Walls, 27, of Colony, Texas to her social media account.
Walls told CBS she desperately needs a job and that she never meant to hurt anyone. She said she cried after scores of strangers wrote insults on her Facebook page because of her post.
‘I really needed it really bad,’ she said.
‘I’m a single mom..trying to get out on my own,’ she added.
Walls said that when posting her negative opinion about working at the Child Development Center in Colony, she immediately received backlash from her community online.
‘I had all these girls attacking me because I don’t want to be around a lot of kids all the time,’ said Walls.
Walls’ original post was deleted but she most recently wrote, ‘Oh man I made a big mistake. I’m so sad. I feel like a failure here looking at my daughter crying because I’m afraid that I’m not going to be able to find a job because of my own stupidity.
Posts from strangers directed towards her on her page call her ‘dumb’ and one person even wrote that that Walls has the Bubonic Plague.
The owners of the day care found out about Walls’ post and told her not to go back to work the next day.
‘I actually cried. It really hurt because I wasn’t trying to offend anybody.’
‘It really was a big mistake,’ she said.
‘I don’t hate children. I have my own…I love her,’ Walls added.
Walls says that when she posted her feelings to Facebook she never realized her firing would become the outcome. She says she learned a lesson this week.
‘I’m not going to post anything like it ever. No matter how I feel,’ she said.
