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.

GAT_00: Lsherm: GAT_00: Lsherm: I've noted in other threads that CFA's are extremely clean and their service is, bar none, the best in the fast food business.

They get fired if they don't respond with 'my pleasure' if you thank them.

Well then that's training that works, isn't it? It sure beats hitting the local Wendy's and being greeted with "Wachoo want?" Or my absolute favorite (since I'm in the South): "Yeah?" That's how some employees greet you. Seems to me a little customer service training isn't outside the bounds in a fast food environment. After all, you'd be pretty pissed if the customer service line for your computer treated you the same way the guy at KFC does.

I think you've confused hospitality with ridiculously over the top rules.


www.jollybengali.net

Bullshiat! Heating and serving fast food is a life or death mission and we DON'T LEAVE A MAN BEHIND! I can't tell you how many times I've walked past the line and heard a puke-brained 17-year-old telling someone to "have a nice day." WRONG! We tell people, "My pleasure." Why? Because these men and women on the front lines are sacks of fecal matter barely smart enough to write their names on an application. They need to be molded and trained into less pathetic maggots who understand their place. They are SUPPLICANTS. They are the CANNON FODDER. HOOAH!

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.

Pocket Ninja: 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.


I'm pretty sure that he was banking on getting some sort of an argumentative response the first time he said "anti-gay" or "hate group" or whatever his opening line was.

He probably laid awake all night thinking up witty and thought provoking responses, with just a touch of thinly veiled disgust, to every aggressive response that the chicken jockey could feasibly dish out. In every one of these fantasy scenarios, his final cutting retort would simultaneously devastate and educate every homophobe within a three block radius in a pyroclastic flood of superheated righteousness and smug. Of course, his sense of purpose would shield him from the wave like a Kevlar cloak. He assumed that uploading the video would make him some kind of folk hero and everyone would fight over which town would get to hold his parade.

When the poor little girl was nice to him, his entire plan fell apart. Then the retard put it on Youtube anyway because he'd gone to all the trouble, and besides, what's the worst that could come out of it?

Sandusky may have been born that way but his acts were still illegal because his victims couldn't consent. It was his responsibility to abstain, get help, chemically castrate himself, or do whatever else was necessary to keep his urges in check.


So you DO feel that homosexuals should abstain from their immoral conduct.

NightOwl2255: Thunderpipes: The city of Boston, I believe said they would deny Chick-Fil-A permits because of the CEO's statement. That is illegal, and simply bad. That goes beyond griping and is real discrimination. You can't do that. Liberals want anyone they disagree with silenced and punished. That goes against every free speech principle there is.

As usual, you are wrong. Companies don't enjoy the rights bestowed on the individual by the Bill of Rights. Is the Mayor of Boston trying to prevent Dan Cathy from making anti-gay statements? No? Didn't think so.


Wanna bet? Companies are entitled to equal treatment under the law. The ACLU stepped in and basically told Boston they were up the creek without a paddle if they went through with that. Boston backed down. Would you be happy if an assless chaps store was not allowed to open in Provincetown?

rynthetyn: gimmegimme: rynthetyn: Seriously, people need to not make low level flunkies the front liners in the culture wars. Having worked department store retail for too long, I can hardly force myself to say "Merry Christmas" anymore. We got boycotted by the same sort of idiots who are now going out of their way to buy Chick-Fil-A, and it would get us yelled at by those idiots who couldn't bring themselves to stop shopping but would decide to make their little culture war stand against the "War on Christmas" by yelling at employees. Regardless of how you feel on an issue, you're a moron to take it out on the people who are just trying to pay for college by selling you crap.

I don't believe your story at all. For the past two weeks, the right wing has been reminding us that boycotts and protests are a communist tactic undertaken by left-wing jerks who want to stifle free speech.

That's the thing I've been facepalming about the most with this Chick-Fil-A "free speech" stuff. The people who perfected the boycott for stupid political reasons are now acting all butthurt that the tables got turned on them.


...but...but...when gays boycott CFA, it's "oppressing Christians and businesses"! When the right-wing does it, it's "standing up for American values!"

So first of all this guy, a CFO thinks that wasting a bunch of gas while waiting in line in order to cost the company money (price of a cup, lid, and straw) by ordering a free water is accomplishing something? Maybe if he did it a thousand times a day for a week he'd cost the company something in the order of $17.00. Great farking plan! With wits like that I'm sure he was a great CFO and they'll regret letting him go.

Secondly I wish I could have seen the look on his face when he realized this didn't work out quite the way he thought it would. I'll bet he got up this morning fully expecting to read a Huff-Po piece about a video they found of some brave guy standing to the hate mongers at chick-fil-a and gays everywhere rejoiced. Instead he's going to have to try and find another high paying job with a company that's never heard of the internet. He sure showed them.
