We’ve all heard those awful stories about getting dumped via text message. Well, how would you like to be fired that way, too?

The owner of Barducci’s Italian Bistro, in Winter Park, Florida, recently let go of all of his employees via text.

Kennedy sent the same message to all his workers that begin with the following:

I unfortunately need to inform you that I have been forced to close Barducci's effective immediately.”

Jodi Jackson, a former cook at Barducci’s, is none too pleased with Kennedy, saying, “I think it’s immoral. I think it’s cowardice.”

Jackson says she and her former co-workers are still waiting for their final checks.

Strangely, Barducci’s Facebook page and website are both up and running.
