I’ve been in a mood all day after I saw the anon post from somanybadcustomers regarding shoplifting.

Here’s some points to consider next time you consider shoplifting:

  • At no time does shoplifting “stick it to the greedy corporation”

*trying to hide massive boner from how amazing this post is*

"So when you steal, you nasty shitbiscuit, you potentially cost somebody a raise, their bonus, or their job depending on how many of you asshats decide stealing stuff is acceptable. So every time one of you butt puppets screams out “Hurrrr to the Durrrrr RAISE MINIMUM WAGE BECAUSE GREEDY CORPORATIONS SHOULD PAY A LIVING WAGE DEEEERRRRRRRP” you’ve already stolen money from those people, and are part of the problem."

God bless John Server.

Male Coworkers Ought to Start Wearing Bras.

…and then made the butt of sexual jokes when they don’t wear them.

Okay, let me explain.

A few days ago I got a really bad sunburn on my back, and it hurts to wear anything remotely tight fitting, especially scratchy shirts. I went in to work holding my chest because it hurt too much to wear a bra, and I had to go without. A coworker noticed the way I had my arms crossed and asked what was wrong, so I told him that it hurt my sunburn too much to wear a bra. Rather than expressing any kind of sympathy, my coworker instead made a move as if to move my arms away from my chest and when I slapped his hands down he literally said, “Aw, come on ____! Let me cop a feel!” and then repeatedly stated how “hot” it was that I wasn’t wearing a bra.

What’s sad is that I wasn’t really bothered by this until I told my friend about it, and she became upset about the fact that this coworker, who I considered a friend, was being so blatantly aggressive. Now I’m wondering if working in the restaurant business has made me less sensitive to people treating their coworkers this way, or if I’m just overreacting when I say I now realize that he was way over the line, acted inappropriately, and would have deserved a good smack to the face.

What, was he expecting me to put on a show? Wet t-shirt contest for one? What the actual fuck, man. It’s not like I enjoy being sunburnt and uncomfortable. You notice how guys will lightly joke about when they’re cutting glass, but as soon as a girl’s cutting glass, she’s either “gross” or everyone can hardly keep their hands off their dicks? Seriously what the fuck. I shouldn’t have had to keep my chest so hidden because it was really awful for my posture, but thanks to idiotic assholes who enjoy sexual objectification, I had to. I don’t think that’s quite fair, and it’s starting to piss me off.

  • (A gay couple has just met up in the restaurant and kissed each other upon arrival. Another customer has seen this and is obviously angry.)
  • Angry Customer: “Damn f**s.”
  • Gay Man: “Excuse me?”
  • Angry Customer: “You heard me, you little s***. Let’s not make this into some little pride protest, okay? I have to accept that you’re going to live your lifestyle, and you have to accept that I’ve got freedom of speech.”
  • Gay Man: *quietly* “Is it too much to ask for a little human decency?”
  • Angry Customer: “Human? Listen up, what you’re doing is not human. I think I have the right to determine what I think is human.”
  • (The manager shows up. He’s a quiet Italian man who I assume is conservative due to the Christian imagery and portrait of Reagan he keeps around the restaurant.)
  • Angry Customer: *to the owner* “Hey, can you move either them or us to another table?”
  • (Instead of responding to the angry customer, the owner instead speaks to his wife.)
  • Owner: “I’m sorry ma’am, but we have a strict ‘no pets’ policy in my restaurant.”
  • Wife: “Uh, I, uh, what? I don’t have a—”
  • Owner: “Well, according to your talking monkey over here, I can determine who’s a human and who’s not. You bring an animal into my restaurant; I gotta assume it’s your pet.”
  • (The angry customer storms out. When I left, the owner was giving his description, and copies of security camera footage, to the biggest crowd of police I’ve seen. Apparently it’s a bad idea to not pay your bill at a restaurant that gives free coffee to cops.)
