A gas station employee fed up with his boss being late posted a tirade that's gone viral.

Now he's out of a job.

"As you can see, the doors are locked. I went home," read the note posted on the front door of a gas station in Grand Rapids, Mich. "Fire me if you must, but realize I walked due to YOUR negligence."

Joe Blumm said he waited more than an hour for his boss to show up before writing the note.

It was meant for his manager's eyes only.

But soon it showed up on a local blog. Then it was posted to Reddit.

Blumm told Grand Rapids TV station WXMI the note went viral so quickly his head started spinning.

"I noticed it was in the top five of their (reddit.com) hot list and I started freaking out a little," he said.

The manager admitted she was late, saying her alarm clock didn't go off. But she told WXMI Blumm never called her or let other employees know he was locking up.

Blumm was fired on Friday.
