Foodies are firing people all the time

While at first it doesn't seem related with foodies and food business, Why Mitt Romney likes firing people posted on CBS News takes food business as its examples, and it doesn't stop at that: it also highlight the thing that we all sure we're aware of, but seldom put it in such perspective: we've been firing people more often that we're aware of.

As a foodies, what would you do to an eatery that doesn't live up to your standard? If you stop visiting them, then you are firing them -- from the line of services that you allow to serve you. If you've been rudely treated by a server in a restaurant, and chosen to eat somewhere else the next time, you are firing the server, and the business he worked for as well.

We don't think of it as a "firing" because we don't make a formal employer/employee relationship with these people. We just kind of think of it as "not going back" or "hiring someone else." But anytime you terminate that paying relationship, you're firing that person or that company. (And let's face it, you terminate a relationship with a company because of its employees far more often than because of its product.)
Even worse, as foodies sometimes you went to the full distance by blacklisting eateries you think are troublesome, and share the list to other employers in the food business customers, i.e. fellow foodies, to create a syndicated refusal of one business's service, practically minimizing the business's chance to be "employed" by other foodies alike.
