Vermont's not exactly the state you want to try pulling something like that in.
 
2021-11-24 10:57:26 PM  
I heard this at a hurricanes game. Didn't say anything because there is a Brandon playing on the hurricanes.

FTFA: The fired cook says he doesn't believe that he should have been dismissed and says the menu calendar was in his office.

Aww, does the feisty GQPer suddenly not believe in at-will employment, and pulling himself up by his bootstraps?

The letter states that he also did not work his entire shift on Nov. 9, 11 and 17 without a valid reason.

Ok, idiot.  Have you never had a job before?

If you're wondering what it means...

"It started at an Oct. 2 NASCAR race at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama. Brandon Brown, a 28-year-old driver, had won his first Xfinity Series and was being interviewed by an NBC Sports reporter. The crowd behind him was chanting something at first difficult to make out. The reporter suggested they were chanting "Let's go, Brandon" to cheer the driver. But it became increasingly clear they were saying: "F-- Joe Biden.""

Are people already calling this Biden Derangement Syndrome? A guy wins a significant race and instead of applauding his achievement, dick heads rail against someone who has fark all to do with anything at NASCAR...

Never bring in politics to the workplace, no matter who you support.

When the GOP sends people, they are not sending their best. They are sending people that are really stupid, and they are bringing their stupidity to us. 

Anyone who thinks 'Let's go Brandon' is witty should be fired on the sole basis of being so very, very lame.

I'm sure he'll have an easy time finding another job in Vermont, with that Silent Majority horseshiat.

He blew off three shifts?

Let's count the number of people fired for being 15 minutes late.

kdawg7736: Never bring in politics to the workplace, no matter who you support.


That used to be the rule, yeah.

Until we started having to work with people that refuse to get vaccinated or wear a mask. Once your "politics" are threatening my life (and the lives of millions, really), then the rule goes out the farking window.

It's not a "political difference" anymore. It's good versus evil. Evil people don't get to come into work and expect everyone else to pretend they're not evil.

But...it's a risk, for sure. I completely sympathize with people that bite their tongue to keep their job. But if you DON'T need to bite your tongue, if your job is secure, then make sure you let your co-workers know that Republicans are pure trash and won't be tolerated.

I just figured they weren't so brain-addled and easily distracted that they could focus on the sport they came to watch for however many minutes it takes to interview the race winner.

To be fair, he likely never had to deal with the consequences of his actions before, so he's just baffled when it turns out that not everyone is a raging fascist sucking orange taint.

I am Asian American.  When Nascar first started in Dallas, I was interested in going to see a race.  An acquaintance who frequented them basically told me that I would be OK in the grandstand, but that I shouldn't try and go to the infield.

Getting to be angry, racist, misogynestic and stupid is the reason why people go to NASCAR races.  I am not sure they care about the guys driving in a circle

Yup. Most of my coworkers are GQPers and are just baffled when they get called out on things. And by calling them out, I mean asking simple, logical questions. One recently filed for a religious exemption for vaccines and mask wearing...and was placed on indefinite suspension while HR started researching options. And everyone was just shocked.

Much like cops, you're absolutely correct in that these people have never had to deal with consequences, and are now freaking out about being held accountable.

I'm curious what specifically "did not work his whole shift" means. He's a dumbass for the Brandon crap, but I hope his firing is legit based on the absences and not because he rustled jimmies.

I twice heard people try to start it during the Packers-Seahawks game at Lambeau I was at a couple weeks back.  Neither ever got to more than 10 or so people. The first one just died out after less than a minute, as no one joined in. The second got drowned out by a "Go Pack Go" chant almost immediately.

Yeah, turns out when society lets straight white men get away with basically anything they want, they end up with a really warped sense of how conscience and consequences work. Go figure.

I got fired for wearing a "Fark Gov. McAuliffe" T shirt and having several Youngkin bumper stickers. And I guess putting up several Youngkin yards signs around the building I worked was also a no-no.
I didn't see what the big deal was with showing my support. But they told me I was no longer welcome as part of McAuliffe's campaign headquarters.

The head cook probably has enough clout to blow off early on some shifts without anyone caring.

My guess is they wanted to toss his ass due to the LGB thing, and threw in the missing work part as an insurance policy to make sure they had unassailable cause.
