Adam Smith, smited CFO

So this former CFO/Treasurer decided to show up at the local Chick-Fil-A for a "free water" and to dole out a tongue lashing to whomever happened to be working at the window... and then to film it... and then to post it on youtube. Well, it turns out that nobody likes a bully. His name is Adam Smith and after his video went viral, the company for which he had been serving as CFO and Treasurer fired him promptly.
TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - The following is a statement from Vante: Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company. The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others. We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.
In a classic case of closing the barn door after the horses got out, he swiftly deleted the video but at least one thoughtful user reuploaded it for him.
Oh and by the way, I'm not sure why it bears mentioning (of course I know exactly why it bears mentioning), but he's not gay.

"I don't know how you live with yourself and work here," he tells the employee at the window. "I don't understand it. This is a horrible corporation with horrible values. You deserve better."

”I’m a nice guy, by the way … totally heterosexual," he continues. "Not a gay in me, I just can’t stand the hate.”

He should write a book. He could call it "The Nature and Causes of the Non-Wealth of Morons."
