I think if she did this to me I wouldn't be able to stop laughing. I mean being handed a note saying "You ugly". I get why she was fired though. She's there to do a job, not pass random notes to the public. If she did this imagine what else inappropriate she was doing. Totally unacceptable to do this on the job.

Culture has nothing to do with this. Upbringing does. The female worker apparently had none. She deserved to be terminated for her actions. Maybe she'll learn something about how better to treat people, but I doubt it based on the way she was laughing.

No one has ever told me I looked ugly, although I have been told a couple of times that I look dangerous. Maybe that's why no one has ever told me I look ugly.

She's not there to joke. She's there to be a professional.

Me too, LOL.

Clearly she didn't want or need that job. Tots and pears...

I'm not going to be that old fart complaining about "kids these days" but seriously...there are SOME young "adults" out here getting away with doing things that it would have NEVER EVER occurred to me to do.

Her next target might have been someone experiencing grief or depression or otherwise in a fragile emotional state.
No one deserves to be treated like crap by anyone, especially simply as a form of cruel amusement. That man did her no harm. There was no reason other than sheer cruelty for what she did, even though to some it might seem silly or insignificant.
I agree.

I was driving back home after my mother's funeral and I stopped to get gasoline. The clerk must have noticed my sad face and told me, "You would look much prettier if you smiled." I did not respond to her, but it definitely made me feel even worse.

That was almost 30 years ago and I still remember it as if it happened yesterday.

I can imagine if it were the other way around, there would be some outrage and possibly considered 'racist.'

I wonder if these workers, when not goofing off, passing notes and laughing amongst their coworkers, actually ever catch any terrorists.
