Woman Passes Out, Wakes Up In An Ambulance To This Text From Her Boss

A woman was working when she had an allergic reaction to food. She went into anaphylactic shock and was rushed to the hospital for treatment. Doctors told her she could have died. Her unsympathetic employer texted the woman telling her she was fired.

Danielle Duperreault relayed the entire incident on Facebook. The young girl was working at Urban Planet, a clothing store in Canada, when she came into contact with peppers. She is severely allergic to peppers.

Duperreault called her manager for help, but instead of calling an ambulance her manager just seemed annoyed.

“She proceeded to show a tremendous amount of attitude, I did not have an epi pen on me at the time because mine was expired and I needed to get a prescription for a new one. So she told me to go look in my car then proceeded to of wander off," she explained. "Meanwhile I’m getting fainty and I’m vomiting, I went out to my car and searched for one but no luck. So I go back into the store, gurgling and clutching my throat while customers and a few staff around me were freaking out and that same manager stood calmly at the computer typing away.”

A concerned co-worker rushed Duperreault to a clinic. The clinic gave the young woman a shot of epinephrine and sent her to a hospital by ambulance. “The doctors said if I would have waited another ten minutes I would be dead,” she said.

Later, Duperreault received a text from the manager. "I gave your shifts away this week and unfortunately I won't be scheduling you any longer. We will mail your last paystub to you. Take care, wish you all the best," it read.

Urban Planet's parent company, Y.M. Inc., has apologized to Duperreault for the incident. “We have thoroughly investigated this. Simply put, the actions were unacceptable,” said a spokesperson for the company.

Duperreault just hopes to raise awareness about the seriousness of allergies. “There should be training on how to administer an epi pen, how to handle a situation like that, and how to deal with the aftermath,” she wrote.
