The barista is mute and has a speech impediment and got panicked. She was trying to write, "Is... is.... is for a beautiful soul."

FTA: Aishah and CAIR-MN on Monday called on the University Avenue Target to fire the employees who were involved

Why do they always expect the employee to be fired for things like this.  Seems kinda harsh to demand a removal of their livelihood.

If it were me, and some barista wrote something homophobic on my cup, I'd ask the manager if that employee had a history of bigotry.  If not, have the manager give them a stern talking to.  If yes, then fire them.

It's not like she wrote "fat biatch" get over yourself.

Wouldn't writing a homophobic slur regarding a customer/total stranger establish a history of bigotry?

The photo looks like the barista wrote "Isis" the name not "ISIS" the acronym as though they may well have misheard "Aishah".
 
2020-07-07 6:51:14 AM  
If there's a lot of noise, people often mishear my name, even after repeating it.

"Josh."
"Jeff?" (this is the most common, I don't know why)
"No. Josh."
"John?"
"For the love of...Josh!"

Also, Isis is an Egyptian goddess.

If they wrote a homophobic slur, there's probably not really any legit explanation for that.

Isis, however, is a legitimate woman's name.

Uhh, so in your example you'd be fine with an employee of yours writing 'f----t' on someone's cup as long as they didn't have "a history of bigotry"? First one's a freebie?

Aishah had been wearing her hijab, a head covering, which is "clearly a sign of her faith," Hussein said.

Since this is fark, I'm gonna run with that. No it is not a sign of faith. It is a sign of cultlural oppression of women by men, using religion as an excuse. So ISIS.

She's basically wearing a confederate flag on her face. It is an institutional symbol of male domination in that society.

While ordering a drink Wednesday in St. Paul, a 19-year-old Muslim woman gave the barista her name - Aishah - and repeated it for clarity.

People can repeat their name to me as much as they want, and I'll usually still get it wrong.

I've always thought the practice of writing names on cups was asking for conflict. Use order numbers like every other quick food service establishment.  problem solved and less issues with Karen grabbing Carin's drink.

As a guy with awful hearing and a very low capacity for understanding certain dialects (middle eastern/Indian/Somali/ South Africa seem to be the worst but anyone with thick accents and/or fast tempo i really struggle with) I'd probably last a couple hours working at Starbucks.

People get my name wrong even when I spell it for them, and mine's pretty common in the us.  Aishah is significantly less common and I can see getting Isis out of it. This would be an easy mistake to make. Everyone involved needs to chill.. maybe drink less caffeine.

Some women like wearing hats. Some like wearing skirts. Some like dresses, some like pants. Why can't a woman choose to wear a hijab?

It's funny, I've never seen anyone arguing against the kippah or turban. I've seen people argue against the kirpan, but only because it's a weapon. The other four K's never come up.

Oh, and this has nothing to do with wearing face coverings on public. Wear your damn mask until we get through this thing.

I think you're missing the point of my comment. It. Is. Literally. Truly. Subjugation. Just because something is a cultural norm, it doesn't make it right. See slavery circa 17 century in America.

I was at a Starbucks a couple years ago and they were calling out a name "Aziz!!"

I don't know if he left or didn't hear but they kept yelling "Aziz!"

And each time, to myself, I said "LIGHT!"

Why a name? One they'll spell wrong so people take a picture of their cup and post it online. Free advertising, although probably not the type they wanted to get here.

Meh.

Assimilate or face the results.
Spanish was beat out of me. To the point that I now have a mental block.

So meh. This nation sucks. Act accordingly and make that money money baller baller bling bling, while you can, because the sun sets on all of us. F++k this pie while you can. And rest is noise.

But I could not hold on to her for very long.

In the past many Starbucks employees have misheard my name as Greg and wrote this on my cup. Gregs are all irredeemable pieces of shiat, that is a fact. I feel profiled and I demand these employees be fired.

Too stupid to write one of the most common women's names in the world?
Too stupid to know that writing "ISIS" on a customers cup would be viewed as offensive?
Too racist to care?

Nobody is taking away the barista's livelihood, she is either too dumb or too racist to work in customer service. Firing is pretty appropriate for a barista that offends customers.

My sister has a common Scottish female name but a completely different one for Starbucks in the US because they never, ever get her real name right. It's not even a fancypants Gaelic one; it sound exactly as it spells and vice versa.

"Women should be free to wear what they want!!"
"Ok, I choose to wear a hijab."
"No! Not yours!"

//for those that think hijabs are a Muslim thing, you might want to recall what nuns look like
///or any European woman "of a certain age" back in the early 1900 and before. Look up pictures of immigrants on Ellis island. Really do, it's interesting.

Given that "Isis" is a girl's name and that it could easily be a mishearing of "Aisha" in a busy coffee shop, I think it reasonable not to jump straight to accusations of bigotry. Hanlon's Razor applies.

The barista can't really win, in that case, because customers might equally well take offence at being asked to repeat or spell their names. After all, Aisha was ... googles ... the 523rd most popular name for baby girls in the US in 2018.

But I don't pay a lot of attention to Fark link names that aren't The Hill, because that site is a full-on nightmare, WaPo, because I am full up on subscriptions, and the Washington Times, because there's only so much of that kind of nonsense anyone needs filling their browser history.

Anyway, there are a number of ways to spell Aishah, but none of them end in s.

My CO made a point to always get my name incorrect. Every roll call.
It isn't even difficult and doesn't even need a roll of the tongue. What a POHS. I should go find If he's dead. Probably. He was at least 40 to 55 at the time. What a jerk. Hope he died slow and in a poop.
