Tick was completely justified in yelling at the employee and his manager.
I did not yell at the manager. I was very polite in informing her she has a thief working for her. She was very thankful for what I told her.

Oh, even better then.

Lastly. Anyone who called me out on the kid being black has a point. I did not have to mention it, but I just chose to.

Thank you for your honesty.
But say the kid was white, and tick chose to mention it. Would you have called it out?
I personally would have, because in the context of this story the color of the skin the kid has is completely irrelevant.

So was the first sentence of the OP.

What the fuck, Tick? You think I care about your lunch habits?

Yes, it was.  And so was the fact that he was young.  And that he was male.  So?
Yeah, that's completely irrelevant also.

Yeah, come on, guys.



I think my favorite New Order album is Power, Corruption, & Lies. None of their albums are weak, but PCL just has so many goodies like Age of Consent, Blue Monday, and Leave Me Alone. And the synths are ridiculously infectious. Brotherhood is the runner-up.

The amount of underlying racism in this thread from some of our most senior members is really disheartening.

Sorry, but in the context of this thread, that's just stupid.  There has been nothing racist posted in this thread.  The fact that Quad is a really intelligent, well-spoken poster makes that kind of stupid accusation even more disappointing.
I actually thought that was in reference to TV's joke.

Oh, I didn't catch that.  But still, that's not even remotely racist.  He was quoting a comedy routine that, honestly, sounds like something I would expect Jamie Fox, Tracy Morgan, or Chris Rock to say in their routines.  
I figured Chris Rock.  Never payed any attention to the other two.

I didn't think much of it, but I did find it fairly conspicuous when Tick mentioned he was black.  You might be onto something that it's unfortunate that we automatically notice such things, but it is what it is.  Nothing racist, just noticeable.  Then TV's joke.  Again, nothing racist there.  However, TV's joke after Tick's mentioning of the thief being black actually did create a bit of an undertone to the thread.  Nothing that would have offended me, but it was there.

I recommend Brotherhood.  Unless you think that it having the word "Brother" in it is a reference to Black people.  In that case, I would recommend Substance.  Uh...unless you think it is a reference to Black people selling drugs.  In which case...uh...just go with a Symphony X record instead, 'k?

I guess.  I just think people are being too sensitive, and people who don't even have a right to be.  If someone who actually is Black came into the thread and said he/she was offended, that might be a different story.  But even then...  Well, never mind.  This isn't really worth the fuss.

Yeah, I'm actually more freaked out to find that I somehow ended up defending both Tick and Quad in the same thread.  Kind of disorienting, actually.

I don't see anything in the initial post linking it to the person's race.  He was just describing the kid, and the fact that he is Black provides part of the description.  He also said he is a young kid.  Does that imply all young kids steal?  He said it was a male.  Was he implying all males steal?  He also said he was working the drive through.  Do all drive-through employees steal?  

There's nothing wrong whatsoever with mentioning race.  The only thing wrong I see is that people want to imagine racism where there is none.  That makes me more ashamed than anything else I've seen in this thread.



@Z:  Yeah, one of Quad's posts was saying Tick shouldn't have flipped out, but remained calm.  And that's fine.  Agree or disagree, that's a valid position.  But then he said this crap:

The amount of underlying racism in this thread from some of our most senior members is really disheartening.

Sorry, but in the context of this thread, that's just stupid.  There has been nothing racist posted in this thread.  The fact that Quad is a really intelligent, well-spoken poster makes that kind of stupid accusation even more disappointing.

This is the most level-headed post in the entire thread.

Every time tick post it causes a shitstorm over nothing.  I suggest whenever you read tick's post read it in Archie Bunker's voice as to disarm your  rage.  He means well, it's just he has an Archie Bunker way of typing it. :lol

You do have to say, I start some entertaining threads. No matter what I post, it does turn into a shitstorm.

Here is the reality of the thread.
A thief is scamming customers repeatedly and chose me as a victim on several occasions.
It is not about the fact I was stern towards him from my car for ripping me off every time I go through the drive through, or the fact I said fuck while calling him out for being a douche.

I am not the bad guy here despite other thoughts to the contrary.
Yup. Tick is dead on.  She's not your type.  Move on.   Tick is Obi Wan Kenobi

Tick may be a great human being or he may be in the KKK...I don't care.  Believe it or not, skin color is a useful physical descriptor that is readily apparent.  The racist witch hunt going on in this country (and in this thread) is just another part of the problem.

No, you were the bad guy for completely blowing up in the restaurant. There's nothing wrong with calling out a thieving employee. It's quite another to throw a 'tantrum', as it were, in the middle of a restaurant. It's bad for business. What you SHOULD have done is called the manager over IMMEDIATELY and talked it out. Your reaction wasn't called for

As far as I understand it, Tick flipped out from his car at the drive-through.

edit: Reread the OP and he was definitely in his car at the time. Not in the middle of the restaurant.

Holding up the line then. I could have sworn he was inside... But either way, the reaction was over the top.

Why? The guy was ripping him and probably everyone else off, the amount doesn't matter (although I'm sure the manager wouldn't think that a lost quarter off every customer that guy serves is insignificant). We're really going to dedicate another thread to bashing Tick, this time for yelling at a thief?

It sounds harsher in the OP. And this has nothing to do with bashing tick. I was merely stating my opinion that I felt he overreacted

As a manager that has been in many similar situations working the drive thru, I've had complaints about my employees working the DT. It is absolutely no help to yell because it creates unneeded tension.

That said, I understand the mess. Somebody is ripping you off. Maybe a tiny bit, but it's the principle of the matter. That kid doesn't have much integrity doing what he is doing. If that happened where I work, we would move him off the register and to where there is no money handling, and, depending on the severity or amount, would get him audited. Yeah, my job doesn't play around.

Tick, as a manager for about 5 years in food service, I'd say next time just get the manager and be calm. I know it's such a stupid situation and can anger people, but a good manager will help you out. A bad manager? Then you call the corporate office and complain. Gah, I am too familiar with this...I've never had a complaint on me (because I know how to calm people down), but I have seen many managers get written up for not taking care of the customer.


Every customer is not worth saving.

Corporate higher-ups would like to have a word with you.



Oh, by the way, to me, it seemed like Tick was using "black" as a descriptor. Like, that was how we was able to see the pattern more easily in how his quarters were not being handed to him. All the black people I work with are cool and call me the "n" word all the time and I call them it also, and we pick on our Jewish employee and he's cool with it. One of the black girls said she'd have my baby, actually, so hey.
