SEATTLE - A Seattle barista says it was all satire, but his anonymous blog that made snarky comments about his boss and the customers he didn't like got him fired.
Matt Watson was ousted as the author of the blog "Bitter Barista" this week by another coffee site called Sprudge.com, which led his boss at All City Coffee in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood to fire him, The Seattle Times reported Tuesday.
In the blog, the 30-year-old wrote that his vocabulary is too complex for his boss to understand. He also wrote about not serving customers what they ordered.
Watson said his blog was satire and that he was just accentuating the "5 percent who I guess make our job more difficult and don't treat us as human beings."
