We have an indoor fishing barge out back that’s quite popular. A new hire was working with me as his mentor until he learns the mechanics of closing out the register etc. He took a smoke break and checked out the fishing barge. When he came back inside he commented on one fisherman who had several large Carp, saying, ’You know how those Meskins are, they’ll eat anything.” I let is slide ‘cause nobody wants dissension at work. A little later a customer walked around the store and newbie says to me, ‘You sure can tell he’s a queer.’ Again I let it slide. Then President Obama was featured on the local news show on the TV we have for monitoring weather etc. ‘He’s going to raise all our prices for food and stuff.’ I said really? Why is that? Newbie says, ‘Because he’s a black.” I lost it. I got right in his face and fairly yelled, ‘I don’t want to hear about Meskins, ******s or queers from you, OK? I find it offensive and won’t tolerate it.’ Then I took a break.
But this guy will have to hear about gay rights, christian bashing, the evils of coporate america with out being able to say a word, because it may "Offend" someone.
