People these days have seemingly lost all concept of where they are when they are at work and what they are supposed to be doing.
When you are at work, unless you own the business there are limits to what you can and can’t do while you are on the job. For example, I worked at a company once where for the majority of my shift I was one of three people in the entire facility which meant that as long as I got my work done if I took an extra long break they didn’t really care.
Also, if I wanted to listen to the radio with the little earpiece plugged into it nobody cared because I was one of the three people in the building. Now, if I was playing some obscene comedy album on a loudspeaker that might be something totally different. I was just listening to a baseball game and audio books so nobody cared.
If I had to work during the day when the building was full of people they would rather I not have the radio plugged in just in case someone tried to get my attention for something.
That being said, people don’t understand where they are and that not everything has to be tied into their political beliefs. The other week I witnessed a guy with a towing business that had a Trump sticker on the back of the truck pick up the car of someone with a Bernie Sanders sticker on theirs.
Neither said a thing about it, because both had the sense to realize that there are times when you just leave your opinions to yourself.
A store clerk at a vape store was fired Friday evening after he was caught on video screaming at a customer wearing a shirt that said “Trump” and a MAGA hat, demanding for him to leave and refusing to sell him anything.
“LEAVE THE STORE! LEAVE THE STORE! LEAVE THE STORE! F-CK OFF! I DON’T GIVE A F-CK, GET OUT!” the employee screamed at the customer, Ian Furgeson, who posted the video on his Facebook page on Friday afternoon.
The clerk can be seen taking a swing at Furgeson in the video and accusing Furgeson of being racist. The clerk makes a phone call, telling someone that Furgeson was wearing “some Trump bullsh-t.”
“I’m not serving anyone that has to do with that f-cker,” he said, referring to President Donald Trump. “He’s a treasonous a–hole.”
Furgeson proposed that the clerk sell him the vape juice he came to buy for his wife, and he would not call the police or call the store’s headquarters and get him fired. “What you did was assaulted me,” he told the clerk.
The clerk reluctantly began ringing Furgeson up. After Furgeson said, “God bless America, capitalism wins again,” the clerk launched into another profanity-laced tirade: “F-ck your capitalism, f-ck your f-cking president, he’s a racist stupid piece of sh-t.”
The store, XHale City in Tucker, Georgia, posted on Facebook late Friday an announcement of the clerk’s firing:
“To our friends and customers,” it read. “Tonight, we had an employee act improperly toward a customer. Xhale City does not tolerate this kind of behavior from its employees. When we identified the employee at fault, we fired him immediately. We’ve also spoken to the customer and apologized. We value our clients and treat them with respect and dignity, regardless of their political views.”
