  •  I feel for them... (6+ / 0-)

    I worked at McDonalds for years, and I was on the recieving end of abuse like this many times. Not that they told me to go home and kill myself, but I was told I should be able to do something that would trigger an asthma attack because "my kid has asthma and they jump on the trampoline whenever they want". Or the time one of the managers decided to expound about what my and my disabled other half's (CP, in a wheelchair) must look like (because she was amazed I was pregnant and thus apparently had a sex life).
    Or when I was told I wasn't allowed to wear the mask the doctor ordered (and gave me a note for) to protect my fragile and deteriorating lungs from exhaust fumes because I worked in drive thru every day.... etc.. etc.. etc...
