People used to say that chant in my middle school back in the late 70s/EARLY 80s. The cheerleaders even used to say it during games LOL.
Co-sign. I graduated high school in 1983. It's not new AT ALL.

Biggest wake up call I received came from customers. And to this day I silently thank em for calling my ugly out.I was saturated in unkindness. ..snarky . When the client spoke up I guess I really took it to heart .
Went home and did an objective review. My how ugly I was to people. Putting it in writing makes no difference...it was a message I needed to accept ...then change.
If beauty is in the eye of the beholder.. where is the harm in stating an opposing view. I put as much value into a compliment as I do criticism..each getting a flash of ...Hmmm. .
I dare say I'm less inclined to confront an ugly spirited person for my own safety though.

Different topic altogether.

The airline worker wasn't commenting on his "spirit" because she hadn't encountered it. She was commenting on his appearance. Besides, what's he supposed to do with her opinion? Run to a plastic surgeon?

It's not even close to constructive criticism. Completely unprofessional and just mean.

She's an idiot. Not sure it was firing worthy but she deserved to at least get written up.

How unprofessional does it have to get to be fire worthy? Even a fast food worker would be fired for putting a note in the bag calling a customer ugly, this woman is supposed to be a law enforcement professional.

At least he referenced general white people fragility in his explanation for why he reported her.
That's odd, I hear quite a few stories about nasty things being written on people's restaurant checks or receipts. Many times (if not all; I can't remember) the "victim" is nonwhite. For the times when they're not hoaxes, do you think those nonwhite people should just laugh off the insults? Is that what you're saying? I guess you just can't "joke" like that with a lot of nonwhite people. Nonwhite fragility and all.

She was representing the security company. They were paying her to be a professional and do her job.

On a side note, I'm curious as to how many times she had done this, and how she thought she wouldn't end up getting reported. Anyway, maybe she'll have learned something about how to present herself at her next job.

Didn't say the sort of insults were new, just source of idiot worker's comments.

Wherever you come into contact with these people they're always "rapping" or repeating words from rap music like a loop stuck in their brains.

If first note had been written grammatically correct, and second didn't lift word for word lyrics to a rap song I'd put it down to just simple ignorant behavior. But clearly this former rent-a-cop TSA agent was influenced.

"You ugly" is really an ignorant statement. Her teachers would be so proud.

Idiots shouldn't be doing that job.

Because it would have been better if she had written, "Pardon me, sir. You are ugly..."?
