"Never knew weed smokers are more wanted in society than shooters & rapists. Big smh [shake my head] to all of y'all," the aspiring mechanic posted. "All I'm saying is, people take tweets way too serious lol. I'm in [expletive] tears. I just caused a whole controversy over one a tweet."

You weren't singled out because you smoke weed. You were singled out because you're a farking moron and deserved the attention.

I don't have a problem with people who smoke. I have a problem with stupid people who smoke. You make the rest of us look bad.

I have to say - by and large, RCMP are cooler than US munie cops in how they react to situations.

By this morning, the account's Twitter profile was changed from "aspiring mechanic" to "my tweets are NOT serious by any means."

Yeah.  That will help, Sparky.

Then this afternoon, the account was changed from public to private, with only confirmed followers able to see the tweets.

And finally another lost soul gains some reading comprehension and problem-solving skills.  Congratulations dude, isn't learning fun?

We have dumb cops in Toronto, about three weeks ago one shot a 18 year old holding a knife on an empty streetcar about 9 times, I think 6 of those bullets came after the guy was already on the ground. shiat they even tased him after the bullets for good measure.

When I heard this morning that he lost his job, I thought that his employer was overzealous and just trying to get in on the media shaming. Then I saw his tweet...

"Any dealers in Vaughan wanna make a 20sac chop? Come to Keele/Langstaff Mr. Lube, need a spliff or two to help me last this open to close."

What a freakin idiot.

I have no issue with pot or pot smokers but I'd fire anyone who publicly posted that they smoke weed at work. Even more if they are dumb enough to publicly try buying it at work. Even more if they name the business and location.

Exactly. Huge difference between tweeting something like "sure could use a spliff to get through this long day." vs what he posted.

People at my work have been talking about getting employees on social media. One person is pretty adamant about making sure there's guidelines in place. This guy's tweet is a pretty solid example of what NOT to do, and how NOT to represent your business.

It wasn't the RCMP, it was the York Regional Police. YR is just north of Toronto, so its not the trigger happy Toronto cops either, it was local muni cops in the burbs just outside the city.

And at the end of the day, the dirtbag lost his job and all is well. Considering he was facilitating a drug transaction, hopefully he gets a few months of PMITA prison to smarten him up.

Anyone who is high on the job is a liability.  Anyone who is stupid enough to set up a drug deal over twitter is a liability.  This moran is a special kind of combo stupid.

After this, if I were the Jiffy Lube owner, I would invite the K9 squads to use my workplace to do drug dog training.  Maybe once a month at random intervals.

It wasn't RCMP, but anyway I think the cops were total dicks.  They actually showed the tweet to the guy's boss and got him fired.  Seems pretty farked to me considering he didn't really do anything illegal.  Stupid, yes, but the cops were way out of line.

I would agree with you had the guy not included the location of his workplace in the tweet. Nobody wants their car serviced by some idiot who is high on the job. Plus that could endanger him and his co workers due to a slower reaction time should something happen.
And no I don't think he was joking. If he was joking he wouldn't have been specific about it.
A joke would have been, "man, I wanna buy some weed and get high at the lube", not "i'll pay 20 bucks for a spliff, here is where I am".
Maybe you're an immature prick just like this asshole?

Fair points.  Believe me as the owner I'd be glad the cops told me.  But it really isn't their job to do that.  They're job is to put the bad guys in jail.  They usually can't manage to do that, but they find enough time to get a pothead fired for doing something stupid.  Like I said, I think everyone involved is in the wrong but it'd be nice if the police just did what we pay them to do.

While I agree that it may be beyond the general purview of municipal police to tattle on employees, part of their job also requires that they keep the public safe. That includes keeping the public safe from intoxicated mechanics who are tasked with keeping motor vehicles in safe operating condition.

I know that it is probably shocking to stoners, but you are a minority.  I am sure that with decent hiring practices one could build a full staff free of drug dependent farktards.

People high around heavy machinery like cars?  Especially when it would be my ass on the line for any problems they caused with the vehicles, not to mention stupid stoners doing things like falling into the work pits, etc?  Forget that.  The liability is too high.  I'd drug test if I could.  You can't even step on to any decent industrial jobsite without a drug/alcohol screen today, which is exactly the way it should be.  Go be a farking grocery stockboy and biatch about how the man is keeping you down while you smoke up.

Whine about it all you like, but in any job environment where there is any level of risk involved in an occupation the jobs should be going to go to the responsible people.

I'm sure you would care very much if they did something stupid like crossthreaded your pan's drain plug.  You would probably find out about it a couple weeks later when your oil pressure light went off, or when you get billed for a new oil pan at your next oil change.

It's pretty easy to crossthread the plug and the person most likely to do it would be someone who was high, and this isn't even a high risk farkup.  What if they worked on your brakes?

You've obviously never ran a lube shop.  It's not the cream of the crop.  Half are ex cons.  It's also not rocket surgery.  You seem to be under the impression that light use of cannabis actually impairs people.  It really doesn't.

Even if toking up at work was actually a problem (hint: it's not) You wouldn't need to drug test to spot people who shouldn't be working.  All drug tests do is catch people who can handle their drugs.  The only reason to use them is because insurance companies will use any excuse to not pay out and raise rates.

I wonder why that is...  Could it be that being intoxicated on the job is a bad thing?

OHS (or OHSA in the states) would tear an owner apart if someone was working under the influence and got seriously hurt.  If the employer doesn't do "everything reasonable" to prevent an accident they are liable.  Not having intoxicated people at work seems "reasonable" to me.
