Mom with son on life support keeps job after manager's texts go viral

ALBION, Mich. (WFLA) - A mom's texts requesting time off from work because her son is on life support went viral after the exchange with her boss was shared on Facebook.

Crystal Reynolds Fisher texted her manager, identified as Dawn, letting her know she wouldn't be back at work until after her son was off life support. Her manager's response to her news was, "If you can't come to work, that's you quitting."

Dawn also added, "There's no reason you can't work and I will not tolerate drama."

Three days and almost 70,000 shares later, the manager was fired and Crystal's job is safe.

People were appalled by the text exchange and the gas station company Crystal works for was, too.

In a statement, Fork Oil said:

"We investigated and have found that the situation was handled improperly and without the compassion that we value as a company. For that, we are very sorry. As a result of this finding, we took quick action and that manager is no longer employed by PS Food Mart. We have also reaffirmed to our employee that she will be able to take all the time off that she needs during this difficult period."
