A Wrigleyville bar and pizza restaurant has fired one of its employees after she allegedly scrawled “quit your job” on a Chicago cop’s carry-out order receipt Sunday.

After seeing the note written on the receipt for his $66 purchase at Happy Camper Pizza, the detective threw the entire order out, fearing that the food had been tainted, according to a Facebook post made Sunday.

The detective had worked 12-hour days with limited time off and was in full uniform when he picked up the order, according to the post.

Happy Camper management today said the company “immediately took action to terminate the employee” upon learning of the allegations.

“Our company works incredibly hard to provide a positive and enjoyable experience for all customers,” the company said in a statement. “We sincerely and humbly apologize – the action of one does not accurately reflect who we are as a company. We have zero tolerance for any behavior that doesn’t give our customers the full respect they deserve.”

Happy Camper management has also reached out to the detective directly to apologize, a spokesperson told CWBChicago.
