An Indiana man who was employed at Arby's is without a job after he allegedly wrote a homophobic slur on a receipt for two male customers, WLFI reports.

An image of the receipt was posted to Facebook by one of the men, which shows the anti-gay slur "f**" next to where the name for the order was supposed to be written.

"I was shocked, just because the kid seem like he was new on the job and he was really nice," said John Burns, who was at Arby's with his partner, Craig Gray.

"This young man has learned this behavior somewhere," said Burns. "You know, there are some people out there that don't get people out there are like this and that's wrong."

According to President for Pride Lafayette, Ashley Smith, the incident highlights a bigger issue.

"What did this person think when he did this, he or she. Did they feel like they got fired because they got in trouble or got told on by some customers. Do they realize the gravity of what they did," Smith said, adding that allies of the LGBT community "should stand up if they see something happening."

"You stand up and you say this is not ok. What else can be done, in the moment, if you see this happen you can't just ignore it."

This first thing that struck me about this story is how times have changed. 

Of course I'm not familiar with that specific restaurant, but it seems to me that there's been a trend lately.

In many place like that, he would've gotten away with it in the past... but recently in many cases in places and situations where overt bigotry would've been tolerated by "the powers that be"...it is no longer tolerated.

Although we still have a long way to go, in many cases there's been significant progress lately..jrSmiley_2_smiley_image.png

You are lucky! Or Smart!

Or...both.

BTW I've noticed that that seems to be a bit of a trend in recent years...little by little, more and more people are getting fed up with working for a boss with half a brain...in an organization run by the #1 boss...with similar traits!

And it appears that trend has really been accelerating this past year  by people who started working remotely (due to Covid)and found they really liked it. So some have decided not to go back to working for someone else and have started their own businesses...

In many cases...but not all.

I have seen cases where sometimes racial/religious/ethnic bigotry is so widely accepted in a particular community that often some individuals do it without thinking.

(Of course that's been my experience, which is probably somewhat different in that regard than many other peoples'. In the 60's I was living in N Carolina and very involved in the Civil Rights movement. .In many cases there were people who weren't particularly rascist-- but the norm was to use the N word without thinking, or to laugh at anti-Black or anti-Semitic jokes because everyone around them did.

People believed it was great to have statues honororing people who basically had committed treason against the United States-- who job was to make sure as many U.S. soldiers were murdered as possible! (Confederate Generals). Etc.

Some White folks back then were real haters...but others weren't all that obsessed with race, just wanted to live their own lives...but adhered to the all pervasive dominant culture.

He is a very interesting man and he learned to cook and sell pushing his grandmoms' cart around selling Frybread in WI. I have eaten at his first resturant in Hayward WI.

His full name is David Wayne Anderson, age 50. Of Ojibwe and Choctaw heritage, he's a member of the Lac Courte Oreilles Lake Superior Band of Ojibwe in Wisconsin.

Some advise for anyone that ever decides to travel to Michigan [mainly the SE part of the state] is if you're doing the speed limit, stay in the right lane with the semis, because they're doing 70-75 MPH; 70 MPH is the speed limit on our Interstates. 

However, if you EVER find yourself on I-696, you better drive like you're in a race. The speed limit may say 70 mph, but the reality is, if you're not doing 90 mph, you're about to be run over. 

On M39 [aka Southfield], the speed limit may say 55 mph, but if you do 55 mph, you'll get run over. Most people are going 70 + mph, including semis.

Any other road... if you aren't comfortable doing 5-10 mph over the speed limit in all sorts of weather, stay in the right lane!!! 

The ONLY time I've ever been pulled over on an Interstate or state highway, I was exceeding the speed limit by 20 mph or more or there was one time that I got pulled over for not wearing my seatbelt [I was hungover and didn't care or think about it]... and I still didn't get a ticket.

If I exceed the limit in a 65 zone it's not more than 2-3 mph over. In a 75 mph zone I drive between 70-73 mph.

I know Ohio is a state wide speed trap.

On other roads, I'll usually maintain at least whatever the fastest driver is doing....  of course staying right behind him or her and let them be the radar target.

Years back, I was on I-95 headed south doing about 90 in the early afternoon (speed limit was I believe 55 at the time).  I always used my signal to move over into the passing lane and then again when I moved back.  A VA trooper pulled up along side me and simply indicated by a hand gesture to slow down.  Okie dokie, yes sir!  I dropped down to just over 75 and we tooled down the road together until he got off at the exit for the VA Troopers Barracks.

A few days after mother's day, my wife and I took my mom to Tampa to the Hard Rock casino for a few hours, then to Orlando to the Boston Lobster Feast.

On the way home, I was doing about 85, little traffic once outside of Orlando. My mom noticed my speed and asked me "who taught you how to drive". I looked in the rear view mirror at her and said "you did".

Not another peep about my driving.

Of course I don't drive in the left passing lane unless someone in front of me is going slower and when I do pass I speed it up to 80 if another car is right behind me.

My grandmother was pulled over when she was in her early 70s for doing 92 in a 70 mph zone. She was listening to William Tell's Overture.

I always loved Arby's but there is not one near me.  When my husband and I were purchasing a new car, there was one right next door to the dealership.  Our salesman brought us lunch from there.  I was so excited to get a beef and cheddar fix, until it arrived.  It was a disgusting hot mess but I forced myself to eat it as I did not want to insult our salesman.  I will never eat at Arby's again, even if there is one right next door.

but then no 'fast food' chain really is.

Some people feel that Chipotle is a notch or two above most of the others...

One of the several reasons I try to avoid fast food. One wonders if putting "fag" on the ticket was all that was done. Or, at least I do.

uh, yeah. I did bar-tending and waited tables for several years in a really nice dinner house decades ago. let's just say it's a really bad idea to annoy your server just to impress the other people you came in with.

I found ways to pad their bill

I used to be a waiter in a really nice Italian restaurant. At the end of the night the owner gave us just a few bucks from the register., but most of the money I made was tips.

I quickly learned that of that money--there were different factors of course-- but mainly the larger tabs were based on the amount of alcohol they ordered (both for tips as well as the owner).

Ordering a bottle of wine was a plus-- but this was  best case scenario: if the table ordered a drink (hard liquor) before the meal-- then a bottle of wine with the meal!

To a lesser degree ordering both an appetizer and dessert helped increase the tab-- but the real money was in the alcohol!

P,S: It was called "Tony's Italian restaurant". 

I later found out his name wasn't actually Tony but rather was John-- he called the restaurant Tony's because that way sounded like it had more authentic ltalian food!

(Nice place actually-- great atmosphere, excellent food. at reasonable prices .and had a garden with tables out back).

This is the stuff I imagine. I used to work with a guy that thought he was funny, while everyone else around him thought him a dickhead. I've no doubts his food gets special treatment. When I was with him, I either did not eat or drink, or I'd try to make it plain and obvious that I did not agree with nor abide by his obnoxious behavior. I've never waited tables, but I have worked my ass off in other places. Never could understand why anyone would be an ass to a person, much less an ass to a person bringing you something to ingest.

When I was young I worked at a Wendy's. The manager had a finger cut off in the frosty machine and a young man was trying to clean the vents above the grill and was stepping on the deep fryer. His leg fell in almost up to his knee. Another time I had to take a woman to the hospital because a big can fell on her head.

we used to sometimes run out of maine lobsters during the weekend dinner rush and the kitchen would put up a countdown sheet at the pickup line. one time some old bag keeled over in the dining room at a 6 chair table. it was a mad dash by the realists/veterans on the wait staff back to the line to see how many live lobsters that table had ordered. my first life lesson/example of tragedy = opportunity.

for those of you that are now convinced I'm without a soul, let me preface that by saying a lot of patrons that came into this restaurant would experience some form of life issue before the entrees and tab arrived, because they knew that the restaurant wouldn't be collecting the bill after gramps or granny was being loaded into the meat wagon. I worked there long enough to see the same guy have 2 heart attacks in the place.

I can't remember, but there were a few waitresses that were horrified by our non-concern. bfd

I saw that bullshit happen way more than once though. fyi - the lounge cocktail waitress watched granny get off the gurney in the parking lot before being hoisted into the ambulance.

In many fast food places that staff makes low wages.

They hire the type of people they do (low wages)...for a reason.

It’s unfortunate that the worst consequence is losing a job at Arby’s.  I should think that it’s highly unlikely that the next shitty job he applies for will find out about this.  Maybe he should go apply at Chick fil a.  They might consider that as management material.
