M&M's Rejects Knife Rights' Order
Knife Rights ^ | 6-1-14 | unattributed

Posted on 06/01/2014 5:17:44 PM PDT by smokingfrog

The candy was ordered for an upcoming promotion through M&Ms' customized Business to Business department. The customer service representative, Christian, was very helpful and the order was placed. Then four business days later we received a call from Christian to let us know that they would not fill the order since "the word knife is not family friendly." That certainly came as news to us. Christian apologized for the delay getting back to us, we had called twice seeking confirmation the order would arrive in time, saying he had argued hard for us, but that his bosses wouldn't budge.

We asked for a confirmation in writing of what he had told us, but when that was not forthcoming, we sent an email to him confirming the conversation we had and asking the company to correct anything that wasn't factually correct. Shortly thereafter, Christian's supervisor, Kathy, called. We had a similar conversation with her, to no avail, and again asked that they confirm that they were rejecting the order for the reasons both Christian and she provided, that "knife" was not "family friendly."

Wonder if they would accept LGBT as family friendly?

Well the F! them.

Their products are already banned from this household because they sponsor kyle busch.

Reese’s Pieces are just fine with me.

Can we still play old Elaine May/Mike Nichols tapes with the “K as in knife” spelling?

Maybe be banned.

I imagine they would be okay with “abortion” if it wasn’t so long. That word counts as family friendly to the far left.

The brilliant folks at M&M also were smart enough to keep their product out of the movie ET - they didn’t want to be associated with that kind of movie. So the script was modified to use Reese’s Pieces.

Sounds like management hasn’t gotten any smarter, if they like to spread their butter with a spoon.

Girl Friend doesn’t like kyle in a BIG WAY!!!

“I won’t help pay for 1 lugnut on his car”

Every time a motor blows on the Dyno and the FD shows up, everybody in Her office asks “what She did this time?”
