Chick-fil-A Does it Again

I have a love-hate relationship with Chick-fil-A. On the one hand, I love their tender juicy chicken sandwiches with three pickles and no mayonnaise on a tired-ass white bun but on the other hand I hate that they continually donate large sums of money to groups who want to deny gay people their rights as citizens of this fine (uptight) country. Well, Chick-fil-A is in the news again because one of their employees was fired after a blatant case of racism.

At a Chick-fil-A in Southern California, a cashier took an order and instead of asking the two UC Irvine students their names to type onto the receipt, this dumb bitch typed in "Ching" and "Chong." Yes, the two customers were Asian. I guess the stupid ho at the cash register thought that the customers wouldn't notice that there were two racist comments typed at the top of their receipts. Um, hello? Everyone knows that Asian college students can read. If she was going to to go with the stereotype of "Ching" and "Chong" then shouldn't she have gone with the other Asian stereotype that they were smart enough to read? And do math? And play the piano? Of course, the receipts were brought to the attention of a manager and the girl was fired for her insensitivity. My real issue with the receipt is why did "Ching" order an Orange Fanta? Who the fuck drinks Orange Fanta?

The cashier's name was Lia and she made a huge mistake. She was fired for that mistake and here it is just one month before Chinese New Year too. "Honestly, it was just a young person doing something stupid," company spokesman Jerry Johnston told msnbc.com on Wednesday. "Had she simply typed in 'Diesel Dyke' and 'Gay Homo' we would have put Lia on the fast track to career advancement in the world of Chick-fil-A," Johnston continued. "Our Chick-fil-A restaurant Operators and their employees try very hard every day to actually go the extra mile in serving ALL of our customers with honor, dignity and respect except for those customers who choose to live the sinful life of homosexuality. If Lia would have stepped up to the plate, she would have been rewarded handsomely." Instead, Lia was given her severance package of a medium waffle fry and a coupon for a free ice cream cone on her next visit.

Or she could have just used their real names, Lily and Kevin. They are co-captains of the chess team. Lily plays the flute, violin and piccolo and Kevin scored a perfect 1600 on his SAT. They both have a good sense of humor and consider themselves Crazian. They are pre-med while Kevin is double majoring in math. Lily is sometimes embarrassed by her mother who pushes people out of the way to get a seat on public transportation and then talks too loudly on her cell phone.

It's a joke, people...a joke.

I guess that's why she's working at Chic-Fil-A.... or rather, WAS working at Chic-Fil-A. She doesn't have the mental capacity to realize that these COLLEGE STUDENTS would be able to read their reciepts. What an idiot. For the record, I have not supported Chic-Fil-A in years. They are a company of bigots and assholes.

Whoa lol you had me there, I thought they had really gone that far!
But anyway, that cashier is pretty stupid- it's not like the names are in some random small print somewhere on the receipt..

"embarrassed by her mother who pushes people out of the way to get a seat on public transportation" That made me cry. That describes the bus i normally ride to a tee! Chick-Fil-A has been on my boycott list since your first post about their stupidity. I do miss it.

@Bitchy: I live in Cali., and I wouldn't be surprised if it WAS a true story...

Oh, Chick-fil-A! Keep digging yourselves into a deeper hole! I've been boycotting them (and their oh so delicious waffle fries) ever since you wrote about their support of anti gay groups. At least they fired the stupid bitch. Wonder what they would have done had it not been in writing?

I'm glad that so many of you boycott Chick-Fil-A. It makes the lines shorter for those of us who don't care about a business owner's political/moral ideals.

Did you know that approximately 50% of the people in this country think gay marriage should be outlawed? And you probably even buy things from some of their companies!!!

Well, lucky me I guess....I live in the middle of fucking NOWHERE and we do not have a chick-fil-a. I think the closest one is like an hour away, lol. Waffle fries sound good too :(

You'd think it was Rosie O'Donnell working the register...

That's the kind of employees their narrow-minded business plan attracts. The only publicity they get any more is bad publicity. And their food is overpriced!

I love your blog! You are a natural writer and do a beautiful job of depicting the ups and downs of being a member of a fast food wait staff!

"Did you know that approximately 50% of the people in this country think gay marriage should be outlawed? And you probably even buy things from some of their companies!!!"

It's more than just caring about the views of the person who owns the business. This company donates its profits to groups that are dedicated to discriminatory causes. I'll feed my fat ass with fried chicken from a homophobic nut job individually, but I can't knowingly support a company that donates money to such groups.

No, we can't always know where everybody's money is going, and be able to adhere to our ethical principles at all times. But in cases like this, when a company is openly bigoted, why turn a blind eye just for that reason?

did you know that there aren't even 2% of the population who are LGBT? Seems like a loser agenda controls the country

People in Germany cream themselves over orange Fanta, I kid you not.
