Need a laugh?

A canvasser for Greg Abbott's campaign was fired earlier this month after her video went viral with over 3.2 million views on Twitter.

I promise this story isn't as sad as it sounds!

A Ring home security camera captured the hilarious interaction. The Texan woman, Monique Dawson, knocked on Dr. James Whitfield's door, and when he came out, she asked if Greg Abbott could count on his support.

His response, "Absolutely not."

And this is when Monique lost it โ€“ but in the best way possible.

She lets out a howl of a laugh. A laugh so powerful she has to hold onto her knees for support.

And her response? Priceless.

"Everybody's got to have a job," she said.

And hey, fair enough!

What's great is that you can even hear her laughing as she walks back to her car.

The entire interaction was friendly and seemingly harmless until the video went viral and Monique was called aside by her campaign manager who then let her go...

Monique posted a quick video update explaining that she lost her job and started a GoFundMe to help her pay her bills after being fired.

The page read, "Hi my name is Monique Dawson. I worked as a volunteer for governor Greg Abbott. As a result of this video being posted I was fired from my job. If you can spare a $1 or 2 it will add up and replace what I could have been earning as a campaigner. Bills are due and I have no other source of income outside this job."

Now, let's not hold it against Monique for then applying for a job campaigner for Beto O'Rourke.

Everyone's got to have a job, right?
