    you're not supposed to move to a new country...to change the country. YOU are supposed to assimilate with it.
    That's a bunch of crap. Part of what makes America great is that the people who came here brought their culture with them along with their labor.

    If that was the actual effect, I doubt the manager would've made this decision -- especially since he had experience with this accomodation at another location.

    Drinking alcohol is a religious obligation for Jews during several holidays. That means that Jews have one less line they can use at this store.

    how thoughtful.

    Right -- because every single Jew shopping during Passover buys pork and alcohol.

    As I've said before, if it caused serious congestion at the checkouts to have this one lane so restricted, they'd open another lane in a heartbeat, and the floor manager would probably be the one running it. Your argument is a non-starter.

    no, but MANY of them buy alcohol for Passover. Its a religious obligation to drink it during the Seder.

    Even if enough of them did for this lane's restrictions to eliminate "Jews" (as a population) from using that lane:

    I wonder what she does when some customers choose to not honor her request?

    Her manager told her how to respond, but the story doesn't say beyond that.

    Yes, but we are also to blend or mix in. That is I accept your culture and religion, and you are to accept mine. When only one side has to "make exceptions", then we have lost what your laws are all about.
