Thread: Watermelon gift gets fireman fired

  1. #21
    We had dinner Sunday night at the Chinese Buffet in Elwood. There was a huge tray of cold watermelon in the salad line. Someone forgot to tell the black couple that also was dining,,
    Did they know thy were in Elwood, IN? and second they should be offended by that watermelon was on the menu.

    I went into Captain Leonard's for a bowl of crab soup and they brought not one ,but TWO packets of saltines.

    I stormed out in disgust and refused to pay! Barely had a chance to wipe my mouth after I ate the soup and got a refill on my soda.

    Ask for Sandy to be your waitress, She knows better than to bring saltines to the Privileged Class, you should have been served Captain Wafers.

It's unlikely the dumbass meant to be offensive and more likely that he thought it would be a funny joke, but it was obviously meant in a racial way and he cannot be surprised that other black firemen took offense.
    So can fried chicken, would that have gotten the same response?

    Are hush puppies racist now too? Just trying to avoid any future fox paws.
