There’s 101 ways to fire someone, but leave it to Uber to use the world’s most inappropriate font.

Here’s why the employees were fired in the first place:

In late November, a full-time Uber employee distributed a promotional code, “UberEmployee17,” through an office group chat monitored by managers. The code, which offered a 17 percent discount on all Uber rides, was supposedly only intended for full-time Uber employees. Possibly due to a lack of explanation, support representatives assumed the code was a perk meant for them to enter into their personal Uber accounts. h/t betabeat
