Yesterday was the first time I got to work directly with you, and I have to say that the rumors I heard - as much as I wanted them not to be - were true. You are a prick. I understand that maybe the world hasn’t treated you the way you think it should have, but show me someone who it has. We all have problems, and a lot of us have issues we can’t control.
If I were to make rude remarks to you based on your race - **something you were born with and had no control over **- I would be branded a racist, and rightly so. Why in the hell do you think it’s okay for you to make fun of our co-worker who has Down Syndrome? Is it because he’s not living up to your expectations as a worker? Guess what, pal - it’s not your job to have expectations. It’s your job to make the damn burgers. It’s fast food, it’s not brain surgery.
If you think it’s okay to call him “dumbass” or “moron” or any of the other wonderful things you were calling him yesterday, then do not take offense if someone were to fire back with the “n-word” in his defense. I kept quiet because, just as it is not your job to have expectations, it is not my job to tell you to shut the fuck up. I was tempted, but I value my job.
I have no idea why management has decided to keep you around. Maybe they know something I don’t. Maybe you have compromising pictures or confidential information or something. Maybe you saved the boss’s life at one point in time. Maybe he feels sorry for you. Or maybe he decided that there were too many kind, hard-working, respectful people working there, and he needed a huge fucking prick to even things out. Whatever the reasoning, I hope he realizes (soon) that you are adding nothing but hostility to the situation.
Like I said, it’s fast food, not brain surgery. You are just as expendable as I am or as our Down Syndromed co-worker is. The difference is, he does his job with a smile on his face, because he likes what he’s doing. You bitch and moan about “the stupid-ass ogre” and then claim to be more valuable than the rest of us. My suggestion to you is: before you start making fun of other people’s mental capacity, analyze your own. Maybe once you realize that you sound much more ignorant and much more like a “dumbass” than our co-worker, then you will straighten up. Until then, keep your damn mouth shut and your idiotic ramblings to yourself.
