Skip to comments.College Lecturer Berates Local Chick-fil-A Employee at the Drive-Thru: ‘Horrible Corporation’
Posted on 08/02/2012 9:37:08 AM PDT by Presbyterian Reporter
Not all of the half-million plus people who reportedly visited Chick-fil-A restaurants on August 1st were there to support the company. There were a few folks who stopped by to protest the company. One such protester is Adam M Smith.
Mr. Smith is an Adjunct Lecturer at Eller College in Arizona and he also is the CFO of Vante, a catheter manufacturing company.
Apparently, Adam Smith is not a fan of the head of Chick-fil-A and he decided to let the company know how he felt. Smith sat in the drive through lane of a local franchise, intending to only order free water and give the company a piece of his mind.
In the video, initially titled Reduce $s to Chick-Fil-As Hate Groups these points are worth noting:
The college students that Smith sees off in the distance and speculates are getting ready to stage a sit-in, were most likely waiting to get into the movie theater they were standing in front of. He tells the young woman working the window, This is a horrible corporation with horrible values. He also goes out of his way to stress ,Im a nice guy, by the way totally heterosexual. Not a gay in me, I just cant stand the hate. Not long after Smith posted the video on YouTube, it was removed.
However, other web users had already spotted the clip, copied it and reposted it, citing the Freedom And Innovation Revitalizing United States Entrepreneurship Act of 2007.
We offer the re-posted video for your viewing pleasure.
anyone know which ChickFilA this is..I want to send them an email message about how well this girl handled the situation.
Watching that sanctimonious boor makes me hungry for a chicken sandwich.
This thread too.
This company needs to be aware of his behavior.
The mission of the Eller College is to support and develop a community of scholars and learners whose knowledge, integrity, and entrepreneurial spirit will transform business and society; this is the Eller Experience.
I believe that is worthy of sending to the President of Eller College with the question “Did Adam Smith not read your mission statement?”
Laz, check out Ace’s Twitter page. Make sure you don’t have liquid in your mouth. LOL!
Somewhere in Tucson, a CFO is signing severance package papers right about now.
White leftists are the most intolerant people on the face of the earth.
Yes, she was a class act. But you can tell that it upset her horribly. Her response, “I am very uncomfortable right now.” Should have been his clue to have a human emotion. None was forthcoming. I hope she is identified and an account is set up. I would love to help send her on a nice well-deserved vacation. Where are the Tucson Freepers? Can anyone get this done?
I’ve got $5 that says this idiot is an anti-semite to boot.

That vile poltroon who gets his kicks harassing a waitress is going to hear from me.
“Not a gay in me.”
What an odd way to say that.
Not a professor. An adjunct lecturer, and by the looks of it, not one with aspirations to become full-time faculty anywhere, just one of those academic bottom-feeders like Obama, who want a university address for the prestige, but can’t succeed on the publish-or-perish track to become an actual professor.
I emailed the contact person at University of Arizona, Eller College of Management, and the "contact us" email at Vante corporation. We'll see if they have a response, if they are proud of what he did.
I suspect I am not the only person to contact them. That may have something to do with his removing the video.
That speaks so well to the employee, the company, and its’ leadership.
Too gutless. He sat in his car and posed for his camera while verbally assaulting a low-paid female employee. This wimpy s.o.b. needs to be taught a lesson by someone of his own sex, age and size.
He claims to be Chief Financial Officer of Vante, 100 N Tucson Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85716. Their phone is 520-881-6555.
His personal resume posted in another thread here shows his mobile phone as 520-403-5045 and email as firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll up the ante. Someone needs to identify her and set up an account for her. She deserves it after dealing with the smug little twerp.
That insecure douchebag’s day started out with an idea that he thought would have his liberal friends glorifying his courage and his support of liberal ideals.
Today he is meeting with his boss and some folks at the university about his reasoning skills and judgement.
I bet he wishes he would have bought a chicken sandwich instead of the free water.
Another Internet High Five to the courteous employee. I don’t know what she wants to do in life, but I’d hire her. You can’t teach composure like.
Have done and hope lots of others do too.
Somebody posted this comment at Blaze:
Adam Smith, CFO Vante, cant manage his own finances:
Here is my e-mail to the guy:
That young lady on YOUR video from Chick Fil A just schooled you Mr college professor. Not only did you bully her, she in turn showed you extreme class and professionalism. I hope you took notes.
If that were my daughter I would be extremely proud of her for how she acted...if you were my son I would put you in a temper tantrum time out and take away your smart phone for a week so you don’t embarrass yourself anymore.
Have a great day.
Looks like they scrubbed him from that website too. Heh.
What a smart CFO...I’m sure he forgot his tale of woes about trying to keep 3 houses will forever be on the internet for everyone to find. Dohhhhh
So is he a 1% er?
No one hates like a leftist.
twitter report that smith’s profile has been deleted from U of A website.
Vante appears to be employee owned according to one report
Looks like a very weak link to our Mr Adams. Now maybe this is more than enough proof for Senator Harry Reid to make allegations, but I still say it is a bit weak for FReepers.
“””Thanks for considering taking my case on.
Regards, Mr. Smith in Arizona””
Gone. Poof! Website scrubbed.
He needs to be outed to the Gay Civil Rights crowd.
Look at the user name on that site and then the user name on his youtube account.
They do have an Adam Smith listed as CFO.
Thanks for clarifying. I had overlooked the same username.
i’d date her...
I'll go out on a limb and guess "Not for Long".
Yeah, it’ll be interesting to see what happens to this clown. He’d better be one damn good CFO, or his ass is grass!
According to Vante's website, their CEO is a gentleman named Roger Vogel. I wonder if he'd be interested in the caliber of person he has reporting to him?
Earlier this morning, Adam Smith, with picture, was listed on the school’s faculty directory. I did send an email.
He doesn’t seem to be on the website any longer. It looks like he was scrubbed.
As of 11:15 am Pacific Time, he is still listed as CFO of Vante.
I called Vante, asked to speak with our hero Mr. Smith. The lady said that Mr. Smith was not taking calls, and she would forward me to human resources. I left a message. I don’t think they will return my call.
Oh my goodness, it IS gone. That was quick! LOL.
I suspect he’s not a very good financial guy. He’s probably skidding by on the company’s good fortunes. He’s totally confused about values.
He disagrees with Dan Cathey’s personal values. So, he attacks CFA financially by forcing them to give him a free water. Wow, that’s gotta hurt CFA!
He planned this attack, complete with a video commentary.
He completed the attack.
He didn’t recognize how badly he failed, even after reviewing his own video.
He’s so blinded by his own rage that actually posted the video along with his corporate & university contact info dragging those 2 organizations into his cesspool.
How on earth can Vante or Arizona U rationalize keeping someone so stupid?
