According to the news outlet, after explaining that the shop’s motto was “work hard, be nice,” the shop’s owner continued the post by complaining about the different types of people he’s had to deal with as employees.

He reportedly complained about whiners, complainers and lazy workers while also creating nicknames for other types of workers, such as roamers, hiders and controllers.

The post took an unexpected turn, however, when it began describing a type of worker that the owner calls splitters. Apparently, the owner uses this nickname for the type of worker that tries to split people apart.

According to the news outlet, he followed this up by explaining that the behavior was mainly seen in young girls, who were taught to behave this way by their mothers. Later in the post, he reportedly said boys were more likely to duke it out.

Users on Facebook reportedly responded by calling the post, and the shop’s owner, sexist. Several users reportedly commented that the owner didn’t come across as a good boss to work for. According to the New York Post, at least one response accused him of being a “woman-hating troll.”

The shop’s owner, Randy Good, responded to the backlash by apologizing for the language used in some of the responses on the shop’s Facebook page, the Herald Bulletin reports. He also reportedly said that he thought the post was benign and that he thought everyone else had experienced the behaviors he was complaining about.
