    If there's a supermarket that opts to invent such a convoluted structure, more power to them. If I have difficulty navigating their checkouts, I'll use a store whose checkouts are more accessible.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    While I understand the sarcasm intent, and at some level agree with the reasoning ( I admit to my racism), to make an issue of compromise and compassion does society no good whatsoever, and thus your opinion.

    To see kindness as e negative (which is what this is) requires a mind I choose to avoid.

    Okay. The request is a little ridiculous, and if she came to me as her supervisor and asked me to accommodate her religious beliefs in that fashion, I'd probably laugh at her-- but then, unless I simply couldn't afford to do it, I'd probably give it to her. Why? Because it makes her job a little easier and doesn't cost me anything. If I saw that sign in a grocery store, I'd shrug and go with it.

    On the other hand, if customers don't respect the sign I'm not going to help beyond that. Handling other peoples' groceries is her job and she needs to do her job if she wants to keep it. But if a little sign like that makes her job happier and easier-- which will make her do her job better-- and she still does her job when the sign doesn't work, it's a win-win situation.

    If it starts getting out of hand and other employees start making silly requests, then I'll probably put my foot down. But if an accommodation doesn't cost you anything, then it's just good employee relations-- and thus good business-- to grant it.

    Thunder is simply trying to shatter the stereotype that Jews are unusually intelligent.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    My thoughts as well...likely you have been there.

    I doubt if that is ever his intention. It certainly is very often his effect, though, isn't it?

    I think this is what he is really mad about—that the corrupt government of which he is a willing part wasn't given a “fair” chance to stick its nose into this situation. The employer and the employee came to an agreement that they both found acceptable, without either party having to go run crying to government to try to force its will on the other.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    She hired on to do a job; she needs to do the job.

    I understand that in some (all, maybe?) states it's illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to sell alcohol. But, this girl knew she would have to sell alcohol and pork products to customers, so she needs to either suck it up, or find another job.

    Um, actually, she doesn't need to. She asked for a dispensation and she received it. She's not in the wrong here.

    it takes a REAL sense of entitlement, to take a job at a place that you KNOW sells alcohol & pork, and to then tell the boss "oh, btw, I can't touch any pork or alcohol. I can't even touch a bottle that contains alcohol or a container that has pork, so keep that **** away from me cause I aint touching it".
