In a similar expericence, I was thrown out of the 7-11 after venting my frustration at the clerk not being able to locate Camel Filters in a box, by calling him a "chalupa".Owl_Eagle
(If what I just wrote makes you sad or angry,
There was the problem, he took the word Camel as an affront to his favorite mode of transportation.
Amazing! It's hardly believable that you have a 7-11 clerk who would even know what a chalupa was.
They threw you out for that? I know you have called people way worse than that.
I've been thrown outta better places than 7-11!
Not really similar. 7-11 is a private business operating on private property. Under an honest reading of the Constitution, they are perfectly free to throw people out for saying "thank you", if they want to.
On the other hand, this Taco Bell staffer sounds like she's figured out a surefire way to get rich. Provoke customers into sending racial epithets her way, and either get rich by suing them, or get rich by suing Taco Bell for firing her.
