and a WTF??!!!

A teen employee in Albeta Tim Hortons posted a sign in the drive thru that said, 'No Druken Indians Allowed'. You know, as a 'joke'.

So of course a boycott of Tim Horton's has been started by aborignals in Albeta. The company of course has issued apologies..blah, blah, blah.

But the employee wasn't fired for this act. The statement from the company was this.

"I think it was one of those youthful things where she just didn't realize and she was made very aware of her actions and the consequences and was very remorseful," said Douglas.

"We decided it was in her best interests -- and a learning experience -- that we didn't terminate, but she has been disciplined and reprimanded." I'm sorry, but as far as am I concerned, this is requires termination. She may be remorseful and it may be one of those stupid things you do as a teen (although I don't remember being doing anything this hateful as a teen.) However, I do think that as a teen you have to start learning to responsible for your actions and realize that there are consequences. (And please...there's no shortage of low wage jobs in Alberta, I'm sure she could get another.)

A bit of Walter Sobchak philosphy is needed here.
