I once laughed in a retired New York police detective's face when he gave me an attitude while conducting business with me. Am I going to die? it WAS pretty funny, so will the death be a slow and painful death? And his squeeze was there and was amused at the scenario, so will I be force fed shiat, tortured longly and viciously, and made to sit in the comfy chair while buffeted with the fluffy pillow, all prior to death by cake?

Apparently, the Daily Mail pays Drew a sh*ton of euros to keep the links flowing.

THE SPICE LINKS MUST FLOW!

OK, that makes sense. Fark would be so much better without all the UK links though.


I'm offended by that statement. It suggests the UK links are inferior; that by being inclusive of UK links, the superior quality of Fark is being diluted or somehow tainted, and thus the UK links should be kept out of Fark to preserve it's purity.

Assuming this story is true (of course it isn't, but let's pretend) my guess is that they spoke over phone, his credentials were adequate, and he seemed a good candidate. They met in person and she got creeped out by the guy. Since it was an all but sealed deal, she had to find a way to back out. Told her supervisor he was creepy and they hatched a plan. They did not want to send creepy guy to hiring party because they would look bad.

I know several Muslims and do not think any of them would take offense to an off the cuff offer like that.

That's what I said. Tastes like the real thing, at least to me. Had some for breakfast today.

Does it?


No. It's not real bacon. If you can take it as its own thing, it's fine. But as bacon? No.
 
2013-06-15 04:07:36 PM  
Even if he had intended to cause offense, which seems highly unlikely under the circumstances, it wouldn't be "racism" as "Muslim" isn't a race, it's a religion.  People of many different ethnic backgrounds follow Islam, just as Christians run the gamut from blonde to black to Asian to Hispanic.

...and in context, it seems absurd to conclude that this was intended to be offensive.  Bacon is not exactly an uncommon breakfast food.

I think she misunderstood. What he said was, "Hey babe, would you like some pork slapped between your buns?"

She thought 'bacon sandwich' and it all went downhill from there.

I guess he should have just stereotyped her. Except for when she doesn't want to be stereotyped.

I bought some from Costco, felt guilty about it nevertheless, yeah fark me, I was embarrassed to buy turkey bacon, fried it up, and sort of thought, meh, this can't be the taste of what drives the planet insane.... Went back to frying up the Costco Hebrew National Salami into my scrambled eggs (also from Costco).


Well don't go by what I say, I'm not a bacon connoisseur by any means but the Oscar Mayer stuff tastes fine by me. I don't eat it for health reasons, if anything I'm underweight but my girlfriend's a vegetarian (somehow, turkey meat isn't meat...don't ask me).

Mambo Bananapatch: rumpelstiltskin: [if I said]  "I'll bring the watermelon to your picnic." I know damned well that would insult the black person, and if I were to say it, it's because that would be what I wanted to accomplish. No apology would be in order. On the other hand, if I didn't know how insensitive that would be, then I would feel bad about insulting him. It's not his fault he got insulted. It's my fault, and I would accept responsibility.

So, you'd tell the guy to sod off if he was angry that you had intentionally slurred him, but if you innocently offended him, you'd wring your hands and grovel.

Okey dokey then.


Well, yeah. If I do something that provokes a reaction, I'm going to be responsible for that reaction.

TuteTibiImperes: Somacandra: Fear_and_Loathing: The question is how was he supposed to know she was Muslim?

Maybe he shouldn't have assumed she wasn't? Making assumptions about people's dietary/religious habits when you don't know them is rude. When I ask people over for dinner or go out with colleagues, the first question you ask is whether there are any places or foods to avoid for allergic or cultural or religious reasons. Its bloody well common courtesy. If he wanted to tell them to sod off rather than admit he was rude then that's his choice. Quit whining that you lost your contract because of your own rudeness. Grow up and act like an adult.

She could have also just said to him 'Thank you for the offer, but I'm Muslim and I don't eat pork (or just told him she didn't eat pork without going into why)" at which point he would have likely offered to bring something else for her instead.  She didn't need to go complain to his superiors about what was essentially a friendly offer to bring breakfast.

Whenever I've went somewhere with coworkers there's never been a Q&A session beforehand of what each person can and can't eat, if you have an issue with where everyone's going, you're expected to speak up.


The only thing I consciously think about at work regarding food is to not invite Indians out for BBQ if that's the menu and I know they're vegetarian (which most in my office are).

Apart from that, sod off with your overly-sensitive, easily-offended douchebag culinary issues.

He should have offered her a "proper English breakfast."

Where he offended her was the offer to buy her breakfast.  Had he honored her role as a woman, he would have respected that it was her job to cook breakfast and do the dishes afterward.

For the life of me I cannot fathom how, or more correctly WHY someone being offered a job would respond by deliberately insulting someone...  It appears the young lady is/was being a tad too touchy..
