“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

Pretty much on the nose, I'd say. If this douchecanoe had posted his hate anonymously it might have been a different story. However, he was so proud of his abuse of an innocent woman that he posted it on his public YouTube page, and linked it to his Facebook and LinkedIn pages. All the pages clearly listed his employer.
I would have fired him too, immediately, and not just because he made my company look bad. I would have fired him because he's an idiot.
2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
What a candy-ass. He should go to the corporate office and do his chest beating there. Not against some poor student working for minimum wage.
But he isn't the only candy-ass to berate a young person working for min. wage in fast food place. Have seen others treat them like crap. They never even realize it may be this kid's first job.
I was once at Subway and this woman in front of me who had hips like two VW Beetles was all over a teen girl about making her sub sandwich. The woman said a lap of mayo and the poor girl did two lines of mayo. You would have thought the young clerk had put bleach on the sandwich. I just said, "Good grief". The woman turned to look at me and I just glared at her. Just like in the video the young girl did everything to try and make her happy. I am just tired of rude people to clerks like this.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
You know those common Chinese factory workers who have to live in the dormitories that are on company property? The ones that seem to be committing suicide on a regular basis? Yeah, them.
For some reason, while reading this thread, I keep thinking of them. Here in DFW there are construction projects going on that will combine living, shopping, and working areas into one convenient location. No daily commute time, plus less automobile pollution, plus huge savings in petroleum costs are just some of the bullet selling points for the Power Point presentation.
The star douche of this thread was a Chief Financial Officer for a company. He studied the totals and estimates of the bean counters that would have called him their Boss. He did not work in public relations, nor would he be visible to the public. His contacts were probably Bank Presidents and loan managers.
Without the popularity of youtube he would have probably pulled the same chik-fil-a stunt without losing his job. One mentionable point concerns last Wednesday. It's been heralded as a great day for chik supporters, but in fact was originally a day planned for people to go ask for free water, then place a Biblical verse on the counter about giving water and food away when they were asked to pay for the water. Half of the crowds last Wednesday were Chik protesters. The protest got leaked and the supporters showed up in number. The media was either clueless, or some may have been biased towards the supporters. There was no protest mention in the news.
So how are the Chinese workers doing? Are there any left? This douche knows what it's like to live in the dormitory. He wasn't ever allowed to go home.
