Dumbest employees of 2011


There's no shortage of consumers who love the tasty sandwiches served up by fast-food chain Chick-fil-A. But a recent incident in Southern California showed poor taste on the part of a cashier who mocked two Asian customers. 

According to the Los Angeles Times, rather than typing the consumers' actual names, the employee instead noted their names as "Ching" and "Chong" on the receipts. Photos of the receipts were posted on a Tumblr account belonging to University of California, Irvine, student Kelvin Lee, a friend of the customers. The post then spread through the blogosphere, attracting more negative attention to the Atlanta-based company, which is already under fire by some groups for its openly Christian roots and connection to conservative stances, the Times notes. More here

OK, first of all, it's not "Ching and Chong" it's "Cheech and Chong." Sheesh.   If you read the article you'll find that Kelvin Lee (the friend of the customers) is very smart, reasonable, and practical about the whole thing ... i.e. obviously not an idiot-lib.

Secondly, "under fire for being openly Christian???" What does that mean? Are these groups "under fire" for being openly stupid? Is the Times "under fire" for including stupidity such as this in their "objective reports?" 

I love how they include "the Times notes."  Yes, they "note" it to help you learn ... you know ... so you'll have all the relevant AND irrelevant facts.  The Times would never want you to go without knowing the WHOLE STORY, right, Times?

"Openly Christian." Unreal. 

OK, you can read the rest of the dumbest employee shenanigans here:
