Not just an employee, but a co-partner in the restaurant. That's not something you would typically foresee needing to call out in the formation contract of the company, but maybe now it is.

It's nice to give ol Norm Macdonald a break and have just one of these characters be a bad guy.

I hope he got his 30% of the business also, or he got the money and they still have to pay him dividends....

That's what's making this tricky, you want the business to fold, get evicted, etc, but then the victims don't get paid.

My man using that good Allrecipes shiat so he doesn't have to scroll through two pages of blogger "On a crisp autumn evening my children came to me and said, mother dearest, my greatest wish is to have those cookies you baked for us lovingly two midsummers ago and it brought me back to warm evenings at the lakehouse with my dear grandmother where she spoke to me about how when she was a little girl in the old country and once a year her father would bring home a bar of chocolate from the market..." crap.

Doesn't sound like it, even their total non-punitive damages were like $60,000, hardly 1/3 of a farking startup hotdog cart, let alone a full resto.

I wonder if they really just wanted the dude to quit so they could essentially steal his part of the company.  Could be they just hated him for being gay but greed sounds like just as good a reason.  I guess it could be both, good for these dudes gettin paid tho.

They were probably better off having left the business, tbh. I don't imagine anything on the Battersea Park Road is going to have much trade going for it now that the revamped power station complex is open.

Maybe 10 years ago, there was a season of Survivor where they had family members play against each other.  One of the pairs were twin sisters who had been on The Amazing Race.  Together, they were insufferably annoying and every second they were on screen was torture.  Separate, it was a very different story.  One of the women went to her first tribal all cocky, saying she had all the votes behind her including one of the guys.  This guy happened to be gay and she said, "Because he's practically one of the girls."  She was the first one voted off the island.

Now the second sister found out and got pissed.  She said, "I'm going to win this f'ing game because they kicked my sister out first."  She proceeded to have the single most dominating performance in Survivor history.  She was calm, calculated, and absolutely brutal.  When the votes were counted, she won by a landslide and her sister was still an asshole.

No, their calculation was building a community brand because they knew the game survived their single round.  Rupert was an asshole, he just convinced everyone he was a lovable guy and it helped prevent him from being voted off many, many seasons, and made him a lot of money in additional perks from popularity with fans and contestants.

That's a smart play.

Absolutely. The power of editing to manipulate a story has been well known for over a century. Before the Russian Revolution there was a law in Russia that prohibited showing unpleasant subjects immediately before or after newsreel footage of the royal family out of concern they would be associated with it.

It's also been used for more entertaining purposes.

Eh there's a foreman at my current job that used to constantly mention his pierced nipples to me whenever I'd show up with a new piercing on my face. Hate the useless asshole. And one day told me "if you get your navel pierced you're a fa**ot".

had enough. No called no showed. Went to another job site that Friday to help out someone else and emailed HR about it.

Got transferred to new site. PM telling everyone I was in big trouble and gonna get a talking to.

Never got that talk. HR showed up a couple weeks later to talk to me.

Our entire HR team has quit and has been replaced since then.

Sometime in there did get my navel pierced as a fark you

In my state, the guy's lawsuit would get thrown out because that sort of discrimination is perfectly legal.

Minorities must be treated like shiat so the majority can enjoy their full measure of freedom and liberty, because that's America's promise of "Equal Protection Under Law."
