Dylan Paul, 24, said she was more than hurt when she complained that a customer mis-gendered her while she was working last Monday.
I was working the salad station near the entrance to the restaurant of Broadway Paggliaccis. Working there, your function is greeting customers, taking and making salad orders, and bidding customers farewell. It was in the evening on a shift Id picked up from a coworker when I was saying goodbye to one of our regular customers. He returned the gesture, misgendering me as man, which isnt something too unusual in my life.
I corrected him, Its maam actaully. He didnt hear me clearly the first time, and asked me to repeat myself.
"Maam, Im not a man." He heard me clearly that time, and laughed at me before going about topping his pizza with the condiments we keep by the door. I had a few moments to say something, but I was too in shock to respond. On my way home I resolved to say something to him if I saw him in the restaurant again, said Paul in her blog. Paul was upset that her co-workers and supervisors did not try to take her side in the situation so she decided to quit and then afterwards, she complained about the situation and said she was later fired for standing up for her beliefs. The owner of Pagliaccis Matt Galvin said when he heard about the situation he took full responsibility and wanted to make sure that type of behavior was not acceptable at any of the Pagliaccis.
He offered to re-hire Paul but she has not decided if she would go back.
He also is planning sensitivity training for all Pagliacci employees because of the incident.
Paul said this incident shows that the problem of transgender discrimination is a larger problem in workplaces across Seattle.
Transgender pizza? It’s a lasagna, but it thinks it’s a pizza?
There’s a pepperoni slicer joke somewhere in this story....
Pagliacci: He was crying on the inside.
So, transgender woman ..hmm .does that mean a man who wants to be a girl..or a girl who wants oh, never mind ...
Do some people just have way too much time on their hands?
Are liberals always looking for ways to be outraged???
Are these trans whatever people perpetually outraged that the rest of the world is “binary” when it comes to gender???
Are these trans whatever people really looking to create the incidents so that can vent their mock outrage at the rest of society???
This article sounds like something out of a comedy routine.
He was crying on the inside but on the outside she had an erection.
Giving these queens the pc drama award is gonna damage this republic even more.
Bones: It’s dead Jim.
The customer is not the business, nor is the customer a part of the workforce.
You can't be isolated and protected from society at large if you choose to be a part of an "alternative" lifestyle.
POST OF THE DAY!!!!!
I hear ya. I too get confused. Does it mean that someone has had body parts cut off or is on hormone shots or what exactly does it mean??
liberals would be outraged at me, in that, I don’t want to know what it all means. I don’t want to learn all about the 56 gender identities recognized by Facebook.
Nancy Boy won't be coming back to work. Nancy Boy will be going for the pain & suffering jackpot.
LESSON: Don’t hire trannies.
and in California, you ARE the gender (in public school) that you “identify” with ..I recall the story of that softball player ..I’m thinking, if the mood hits, he/she might play softball with the girls on Tuesday and baseball with the guys on Friday.
Where does this end? (no where good)
All the “her” and “she” stuff. No, he’s a man, pretending to be a woman. The correct pronouns are “his” and “he.”
I read trans fatty acids are bad for you.
“Are liberals always looking for ways to be outraged???”
They are trained to look for outrage. A friend called it “spring-loaded in the pissed-off position.”
Those are the fatty acids with the unusually large Adam's Apples.
I have met a few of these people. And, of those I have met, they appear to be the opposite sex of what they want us to think they are. Trans whatever “women”,look like men in drag. Which is not surprising since they were born male.
Considering that they appear to be the opposite of what they want us to think they are, they have a lot of audacity to be angry at us for not correctly understanding what “gender identity” they are trying to convey to us. They are the ones who are deciding to go against how the rest of society construes gender appearances. Yet the 99% of us who aren’t with it in this area are the bad guys. Go figure.
I'd like to think the customer was God stopping in for a pizza and to set the dude straight.
“Dylan Paul, 24, said it was more than hurt when it complained that a customer mis-gendered it while it was working last Monday.”
I need an app that corrects she to he and he to she whenever the word transgender appears in an article.
If a person can self-identify as any of 54 different “genders” these days, I should be free to choose which of those 54 “genders” I feel like associating them with.
If they want to play Let’s Pretend, that’s their business. It is not, however, reasonable to expect us to move to the Kingdom of Make-Believe with them.
I had the concessions guy at a movie thater refer to me as a boy, and I burst into tears, as I am a girl, but I was 7 years old at the time. Get over it, you aren’t a woman just because you act like a bitch.
Everyone should watch the video at the source...on what planet can these people pass as women?
Which is why it's so upset.
Let's enjoy the situation while we can, as there will undoubtedly be a push to criminalize the rest of us laughing at their (is that the proper pronoun here?) foolishness.
If I see a shemale working a at a restaurant, I’m pulling a U-turn and going elsewhere.
This is ridiculous.
They cannot force people to share their delusions. I am sure they will try though.
In CA, and probably in other dialects of American English, "you guys" refers to a group of people, much like the Southern "y'all."
claims to have been fired after quitting?
How does that work?
Yes it does
Don't want no he-she handling my food. Especially one who paid to have HIS genitals mutilated.
They will try to force it though
Suppose this freak committed a crime and left behind DNA that was tested. Based on those test results, would the police be looking for a man or a woman?
That they will.
If I walk into a restaurant and find a he that is really a she (or vice versa) - I spin on my heels and go back to the exit - like the time in Chicago when I entered a sandwich shop - the guy serving customers has wires and antennas stuck into every orifice on his face. Uh uh, no way am I going to let “that” touch food intended to enter my body.
They can harass television personalities like Phil Robertson and restaurants like Chick-Fil-it, but the bottom line is that it is morally conscious customers like you and I that are the ultimate decision makers. We vote with our wallets and the ownership notices.
That freaky stapled guy wasn’t there the next time I walked by that shop, though I never went back in. If the owner could hire something like that to work his front counter, no telling what monstrosity’s he has in back.
No,it definitely looks like a woman, but a rather butch woman. It has breasts.
This is so freakin’ ridiculous. I am sure other employees are sick and tired of walking on eggshells for this little drama queen.
Hmm....if the employee has a contract and turns in a resignation, the resignation can be refused and the employee fired.
However that is usually not the case with pizza shops.
Sei tu forse un uom? Tu se' Pagliaccio!
If you are TG and you work for me, if you have a problem with someone calling youthe gender you were born with, I’d tell you that you are the one with a problem.
