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.
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 email@example.com
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
