What an idiot.
Absolutely agree. Very stupid. But maybe poor judgment skills are the reason why she is working in this place.

It's called work ethic, and it's more about how you view yourself than how you view your job.

Well, they are definitely members of the same social class.

Same goes for Tongans - we had plenty of both at my high school. They are the sweetest, most close-knit families I've ever seen. But as you said, toughest on the planet. Our football coach said they could lose an eye and still keep tackling. Many of our h.s. track and field record holders are also Pacific Islanders.

I used to work with a Samoan guy. Total sweetheart. One time, for no reason, he bought all the ladies in the office a rose. Just because.

A 'work ethic' implies having a clue, which entails understanding that ten cents worth of soda concentrate mixed with a fraction of a cent worth of water does not warrant a physical confrontation, which could very well result in the franchise or company incurring significant costs in the form of liability, bad PR, or lost productivity if said employee is injured in the confrontation.

It's the same reason LEOs are trained not to pursue a fleeing suspect if the crime in question is a minor traffic offense. The loss is not worth the risk.

I totally agree with this. Smartest comment that's been made here so far.

One of the best comments in the Yahoo article was by a Miss Demeanor and she said "It's nice when fast food restaurants provide entertainment".
