Crude joke on pizza box
An employee is out of a job before Christmas after leaving a crude joke inside a pizza box.

STAFFORD, Virginia -- A Virginia family wasn't too happy about the crude joke written inside a pizza box delivered to their home. Now, the mother who complained about it says she's being cyberbullied because the worker who left the joke lost her job.

The woman said she doesn't want to be identified because of the bullying.

She admits her two kids asked for a joke when they made the online order with Pizza Hut. However, she said she was shocked about what the employee wrote.

The joke starts "What do a pizza delivery driver and a gynecologist have in common?" The punchline is too crude to repeat.

The mom took a picture of the joke and posted it on social media.

"It's an inappropriate joke," she said. "There's a time and place for everything. My pizza box is not one of them. It's a lesson learned."

The employee called to apologize, but she still lost her job.

As a result, the mother has faced backlash from people online saying that she got someone fired before Christmas and that she should be careful what she asks for.

The woman said she won't ask for jokes ever again.
