Chick-fil-A management felt called upon to fire one its young cashiers because she used the Chinese names of "Ching" and "Chong" on two receipts she gave to Asian customers without asking their names beforehand. It's not clear how many were in the group, which consisted of a University of California Irvine RA (resident assistant) and his residents. It was perhaps just two or three. Kelvin Lee, a friend of the RA, wrote about the incident on his website, quoting his buddy.
“I went to talk to the manager, and I told him that this cannot happen ever again. I chose to be calm about it, but I was ready to go off. I made it known that it wasn’t okay, and that I didn’t appreciate it whatsoever. I think I indirectly fired Lia…”
A day later, Kelvin, distressed at some of the comments, wrote a follow-up.
I’ve been watching what people have been adding to the post as they reblog it, and while I’m happy with most of it (people supporting my friend and his residents), some people are overgeneralizing to the entire franchise or an entire religion and saying things that are JUST as inflammatory as the original offense. Things like “hate the white man.” Two wrongs don’t make a right.
