Today at work a middle age couple came in and wanted to talk to the store manager. I eavesdropped, of course. Their complaint? Our sales flyer says the following:
Partners in Pride: Celebrating our LGBT Customers and Associates
First of all, these two didn’t even know what LGBT stood for so they had to “research it.” Second of all, they felt that it was not appropriate for a business to have that in a flyer.
Let’s just say I’m glad my manager handled it cause if I would have, heads would roll. “You don’t like it? Don’t shop here.” As a straight man I was offended. It also didn’t help that I just wasn’t feeling it today at work, but whatever. I can’t wait for the day when petty trivial issues like this are a thing of the past.
In conclusion, thank you Food Lion. You may bend us over a table sometime (cough taking away our holiday bonus cough) but thank you for putting a damper on those two ignorant cunts day.
Good news: it’s in next weeks flyer too. Bwa ha ha ha.
