  • What's his Fark handle?
  • Here's my beef - if you were in combat, you deserve a farking discount. If I owned my own place I'd be happy to give it to you. Hell, I'd probably take off 50% if there was something on your ID denoting combat.

    If you worked at a desk in Germany, you're just another guy with a federal job. Do FBI or Secret Service agents get 15% knocked off their bill? No? Then STFU. You're not a "hero," man. Just some dude riding the pine on a GS salary.
  • Never post on Facebook if you've been drinking
  • Don't own the business? Shut up about policy.
  • He also noted other professionals, like police officers and fire fighters, don't receive similar discounts

    He's got a point.

    "I'm one of those people that rants and raves," he said. "Realizing the next morning what I'd said, I thought, 'Oh, crap.'"

    Been there.
  • And it's really stupid to do it when you work for a restaurant that is in a town with 2 military bases forming 50% of their income. Fort Wainwright and Eielson AFB are a BIG part of the local economy. There was a lot of talk of service members boycotting Bostons when this came out. Never shiat where you eat.
  • Facebook amuses me. I know a number of people who have seriously compromised their chances for success in their lives because they are so narcissistic that they assume everything they post are words of utmost "wisdom".
  • But he's right sooooo, where's the problem?
  • Can I Haz Jerb az "social media coordinator/" PLZ.
  • Dude, he posts here all the time.
  • You know I think facebook may actually providing a service after all. Weeding out the idiots who should be digging ditches instead of interacting with the public could be a good thing.

    That said, facebook is a scourge on society and all who use it.

    I've gotten the Fark email and thought, 'shiat, I posted in that thread? Uh oh'
  • FTA: "His Facebook account has since been deleted."

    I call BS. No one can delete their Facebook account.
  • Sounds like some pussy pizza guy who's girlfriends all leave him for strapping studly military types.
    HAHAHAHAH
    NEXT STOP, LOSERVILLE. EXPRESS LINE!!!
  • The military worship in this country is out of hand
  • Why do baby killers think they deserve a discount at various places for maiming and killing poor brown people?

    The discount or the rant?
  • serving our country and fighting for our freedom

    This just feels like Orwellian newspeak. Serve and fight so much our "freedom" is penury.

    Why?

    I live in Fairbanks, and know some people who know this guy. He's gay.

    Teknowaffle: Why do baby killers think they deserve a discount at various places for maiming and killing poor brown people?


    Because the Boston's up here has a sign in the window that says "military get's a 10% discount on their bill" in the window. Most military people I know don't harass places about discounts, but if you have a sign up saying they'll save money, pretty much anyone will use it.

    When i worked at KFC in canada, we would give a 10% discount for military if they asked for one and had ID proving they were in the forces.

    Everybody says stupid things online sometimes. I do it fairly often myself, but was always careful not to bring the company i worked for into it.

    A girl i know got fired for biatching on facebook about the state of the ladies room at the call center she worked for and how the women that worked there were dirty pigs.

    /to be fair call center bathrooms are often pretty nasty

    The rant. The discount brings in more people. I know the guy who owns the 2 Papa Murphy's franchises up here. He has big signs advertising a 25% military discount. He started out at 15%, and then discovered that with the 25%, he did so much more business, he made up for the lower profit margin with volume.
  • Zarquon's Flat Tire: Don't own the business? Shut up about policy.


    He doesn't own the business or set policy? Why call for his resignation?
