Ranting at the drive-thru guy? That's like trying to stick it to The Man by assaulting one of The Man's discarded toenail clippings.

Good. Disagree with their stupid ass policies all you want, but there's no excuse for yelling at a scared/bired teenager working a fast food window.
 
2012-08-02 08:06:46 PM
Bired=bored
 
2012-08-02 08:08:02 PM
I'll agree. Most teenagers will take whoever will employ them.
 
2012-08-02 08:08:44 PM
Good, fark him.

I cannot f*cking STAND people who biatch at cashiers, tellers, waiters, etc because of a policy decided by someone else., a thousand miles away, and a million miles up the pay scale.

I would have fired his ass, too.
 
2012-08-02 08:12:09 PM
The definition of ASSHAT.
 
2012-08-02 08:12:34 PM
I'm having a really hard time understanding any thought process by which he imagined himself not looking like a complete asshole in this video.
 
2012-08-02 08:12:34 PM
I actually go to McDonalds and yell at the people in the drive through about how McDonalds advertises to children. (McDonalds advertising harms them by making them obese.) But unlike this guy, I usually order three McAngus burgers and a milkshake.
 
2012-08-02 08:12:54 PM
He didn't deserve to be fired. In the video he says he is a nice guy.
 
2012-08-02 08:15:11 PM
What a dick. He wouldn't have been fired if he wasn't a bigger dick by posting how much of a big dick he is for the world to see.

"I don't know how you live with yourself and work here," Smith says to the employee, before calling himself "totally heterosexual" and saying there's "not a gay in me" and "I just can't stand the hate." He also says he's "I'm a nice guy, by the way."

Way to pick your battles, George Costanza.

This. Add to it that 85-90% of all Chick-fil-A restaurants are franchises (compared to McDonald's 65-70%). All franchisees can do is distance themselves as best they can from the CEO and send angry missives up the pipeline.

I hope this man enjoys the consequences of his free speech.

So much word to this.

I'd like to know what he seriously hoped to accomplish by being an asshole to a drive-thru employee.
 
2012-08-02 08:21:35 PM
Good. People who treat fast food workers like crap, no matter what their boss's beliefs, are scum.
 
2012-08-02 08:22:50 PM
You libs are such hypocrites for defending this guy!!!

In this case, he has none. The Constitution guarantees and protects your freedom of speech from restriction by the government. Elsewhere, good luck.
 
2012-08-02 08:24:13 PM
and saying there's "not a gay in me"

Is that like Bill Clinton's questioning the definition of "is". Like right now, there is not an intern's mouth wrapped around my joint. Right now there is not a gay in me. Because i'm driving.
 
2012-08-02 08:25:47 PM
Good. The kid at the window doesn't set company policy.
 
2012-08-02 08:26:00 PM
Once again proving that Fark needs an Arizona tag.

Yes, abusing the kid working the drive-thru, that's the way to break down the walls of intolerance.

He (was) a CEO. Being an asshole to his lessers is a reward in itself.

She is cute. And a ginger. And she handled herself well.

Hopefully Mr. Smith will one day find himself asking her if she wants fries with her meal. He could use a solid dose of humility.
 
2012-08-02 08:29:32 PM
I will also say that she handled herself very well in that exchange, and I'm wondering how much time was spent by various stores preparing their employees for how to deal with situations like this.

It would be fitting to have a Fark tag featuring cactus to represent such a prick.

He still has freedom of speech. I was simply remarking on how Chick-fil-A has been threatened with boycotts and bannings because of what the CEO said. Now this guy does his thing and gets consequences himself. He's a dumbass, both for attacking the minimum wager (like she's supposed to quit a job for that reason in this economy) and for posting it online.

This Smith twatwaffle fails in all regards.
 
2012-08-02 08:42:53 PM
Has anyone mentioned this guy is an absolute asshole yet?

/because he's an absolute asshole
 
2012-08-02 08:44:50 PM
Having worked in fast food before, I can say that you Farkers are grossly misinformed. Why, in my off time at the drive thru window, I would systematically re-write the company handbook policy on discrimination for a lark. I assume that rapscallion with the headset was adjusting the dividend payout policy and this shining example of chivalry (Let's call him Sir Asshat the Loud) interrupted.

FTA: "Vogel said the company has no stance on the gay marriage issue but has always hade a "good relationship" with Chick-fil-A. He said the company will consider contacting the employee Smith ambushed in an attempt to mend fences."

Jesus Christ. Welcome to America, in which there is no difference between you at work and you at home. While I do NOT like what this guy did at all, I take great exception to the idea that we are representatives of Dear Company at all times. It's not like the guy said, "Hello, I'm Jerk McJerkface, here on behalf of Vante, a provider of medical manufacturing solutions..."

I was wondering if this was the same idiot who got sh*tfaced and crapped the beverage cart on an airline flight a few years ago.
 
2012-08-02 09:03:10 PM
He was as deliberately hateful as the assholes who went out of their way to buy stuff at that place just to hurt gay people. Farking hypocrite.

No sympathy for him...he got what he deserved.

Actually, you're a representative of yourself at all times.

Anyone who would be this big of a jerk and put it on video online rather than burying it shamefacedly and apologizing the next day deserves to lose not only their job, but any respect they've garnered.

This wasn't a bit, this wasn't Borat, this was honest to goodness hate.

Not only should this guy lose his job, he should be unable to get a new one with any respectable company for a few years because he's clearly a dickface. It doesn't matter if he can do the job, nobody should want to work with him.

As I said, I agree that this guy is an asshole. But where do we draw the line? Should this guy be able to have a job?

yglesias.thinkprogress.org

What about this woman?

mokellyreport.files.wordpress.com

What about this gasbag drug addict?

i.ytimg.com

Where should the line be? Who should be disallowed from having a job based upon what they say on their own time? (Yes, I admit Limbaugh was talking shiat at work, but that makes it worse.)

He's the CEO and those contracts usually have some type of morality/don't embarrass the company clause - he *clearly* embarrassed the company when he posted the video and I am betting the legal department and HR were happy to point out how he screwed himself over.
 
2012-08-02 09:20:14 PM
"I don't have a gay in me."

Perhaps that's why he was so pissy.

I am SO glad to see he was fired! When I first saw that video, I fumed about it for an hour.
 
2012-08-02 09:20:43 PM
It probably never went through this guy's tiny brain that the person he was berating could potentially be gay. I feel really bad for the people working at CFA right now, just trying to earn a living while people spout off all this crap.

That depends on the discretion of the employer, doesn't it? You can be sure most regular people who apply for regular jobs have their facebook page looked at and if the employer doesn't like what they see they don't get hired.

He was a CEO. He probably didn't do anything anyway, so the least he can do is not make himself and his company look like assholes.

To be fair, if the person at the drive-thru were gay, they couldn't tell anyone at work or let anyone at CFA find out. The CFA stance on homosexuality is quite clear.
