Depending on how much they borrowed to grow to meet the demand, this could kill them off.

Consequences for actions? When did this start happening?

Now just waiting for the trumpers to start buying Costco memberships to burn the card. Hopefully this makes my local one less crowded.

Thank you Costco. Would hate to boycott your samples (whenever they return).
 
2020-09-23 2:21:23 AM  
Mixed feelings about this one. Seems like they made some real efforts to make amends and I'd hate to see the workers for the company lose their jobs and possibly healthcare in a pandemic. Certainly deserved the action. But, should be allowed to make up for it too.

Pimento cheese is an actual food and not simply an accurate description of the aroma aboard every Southwest airlines flight 30 minutes after takeoff?

He thinks he can get away with it with a hundred grand donation and a few press releases. CEOs think too often of themselves as demigod free from the rules that bind society.
They need to be taught otherwise.

3 2 1 until Trump and Ivanka do another photo op with it and quickly throw it in the trash afterwards like Goya............

Well, that and Trump mispronouncing it as "Penis Eater Cheese" or something like that.

Honestly, Costco has really no choice. If they continue carrying the product, it would implicitly mean they're endorsing a message that could turn into a full on PR disaster. You have to conduct business by getting ahead of the curve and ruthlessly remove any potential PR issues before they happen in this social media hyped PR world.

He is not only the owner of the company, but the mayor of the many soon to be unemployed workers. He failed them twice.

While I agree with the outcome in this instance I will never understand why a business that doesn't already pander to a political demographic (say a gun company) would take a political position at all. Either way they offend half their potential customers.

the company could oust the CEO. Thats making amends in a meaningful way.

"Won't someone please think of our employees!  Please don't boycott us!"

Hey dipshiat, it's YOUR JOB as CEO to think of the company, it's productivity and its employees every damned minute before you open your mouth.  You clearly have not mastered that aspect of the job and will probably have to lose it for the company to go forward.

You started it?  Yeah, tell that to Papa John, or early Steve Jobs for that matter.  Besides being removed for bad reasons, lots of companies need to dump their founders once they've achieved a certain level of success in order to get past their limitations.  Your limitation is clearly your mouth.

Thing is, he is the owner, not the CEO. I gave you a smart, but that not the way it works.

2020-09-23 3:26:45 AM  
This product was already a shame.  Pimiento cheese uses four or five (depending on your recipe) inexpensive and easy-to-get ingredients, requires no cooking, and tastes best the day you make it.  This guy was probably charging $5 for $1 worth of ingredients that are probably loaded with preservatives and taste like wall spackle.

Very few of the people in his electorate have an issue with what he said, probably because you have to be a wealthy asshole even vote for the mayor of Pawleys Island. Bryan Henry won the election by a margin of 20 contested votes, each cast by a personal friend of his who technically should not have been able to vote for him. To vote in the election, the town's ordinances say you have to be a permanent resident of Pawleys Island - the island itself, not the mainland of Pawleys Island (which happens to be where the black population of Pawleys lives). Bryan Henry got bunch of his wealthy mainland friends to claim their vacations homes on the island as their permanent residences to swing the election. Naive me thought that the contested election results might get some people in Georgetown County to strike those rules down so that all Pawleys Island residents (hell, even all property owners) could vote. No such luck.

There are fewer than 200 people who even met the requirements to vote for this cheese dick and they're all white. He hasn't responded to the Georgetown, SC NAACP's calls for him to resign because he doesn't have to. None of the people calling for his resignation in the local community have the option to vote him out.

the palmetto/sabal palm/cabbage palm is an iconic palm tree. it's also the state tree of south carolina and is on their flag.

the "bugs" (HUGE flying roaches, to you northerners) are named for the tree, not the other way around.
