Jade Pinner, 19, from Basildon, Essex, was getting ready for an evening shift at her local Tesco’s in April when she could not contain her anger at the prospect of facing customers.
In the footage, which she posted last night, the teenager had been on a night out and was in a sleep-deprived state when she decided to sound off about having to head in to work.
