    Man Identifies as "Queer", Objects to being labelled f@g, Makes World News Good Grief

    Apple store criticised after receipt shows employee branded customer a “f@g”

    NOTE to retailers: don’t hate on your customers.
    Otherwise, you might end up like this Apple employee, who has the internet up in arms after handing an Oregon man a receipt with a homophobic slur in place of an email address.
    Somehow, we don’t think f@g.com is a legitimate email account.
    Adam Catanzarite, who identifies as “queer”, posted the tasteless receipt to his Facebook page criticising Apple and calling on them to offer cultural competency training for all its employees.



    maybe if you didn't act so queer.....

    Mr Catanzarite had purchased a $29 pair of earpods from the Pioneer Apple Store in Portland on July 8, and posted the receipt on Tuesday after discovering the slur. It has since spread across the internet.
    The offensive email address was added after Mr Cantazarite declined to give his to the employee.
    “The impact that seeing the f@g.com on my receipt has brought about a feeling of great disappointment that this happened and it has made me feel that doing something banal as going to a store is now an unsafe activity,” he posted on Facebook.
    The store manager offered a refund for the headphones but Mr Catanzarite, an HIV prevention specialist, offered his services to lead cultural competency training instead.
    “I didn’t really get a whole lot of interest in that department,” he said.

    Mr Catanzarite is still yet to receive his $29 refund, but in an update posted to his Facebook page overnight, he said the store manager also gave him an Apple store gift card, which he gave away “because I did not find value in being bought out and I had no interest in returning to the store again”.
    He pleaded with Apple to educate its employees on discrimination and homophobia, and while a spokeswoman told The Oregonian the company had been alerted to the issue, it declined to comment.
    “The employee who entered f@g.com should not be fired, but should be given an opportunity to learn about the impact of the use of the word fag and how these words impact the individuals who have been oppressed by them,” Mr Catanzarite wrote.
    “Apple should give this employee an opportunity to get the resources they need to better serve their customers.”

    apple should immediately fire the douche who put that on his receipt...and the state should consider prosecuting him for a hate crime.

    btw, this guy is about to make a nice piece of change in an out of court settlement.

    so if someone related to you buys a product in a store and then realizes that clerk wrote, "filthyasiawhore@slut.com under her name.....are you still just going to say "boo hoo"?


    didn't think so.

    I don't understand this. The customer is a poof. This was acknowledged on his receipt which correctly labelled him as a queer. How is the term " fag" a slur? They all refer to women who are attracted by homosexual society as fruit flies and faghags. So what is the casus belli here?

    Honestly, you'd think folk who habitually use their tongues to play with men's bottoms and pick faecal stained hair from their teeth would be somewhat less precious.

    He openly labels himself as "Queer", but objects to someone else labeling him "fag".

    You don't see the hypocrisy there?

    i think you know full well that queer and fag don't have the same socio-cultural and political meanings.

    the clerk referred to him as a "fag" in an attempt to belittle the customer by using a derogatory name.

    there are more than a few old-timers on this board....i'm sure many of them occasionally refer to themselves as "senior citizens". if they went to a shop and the clerk wrote, "senile and smelly-geriatric.com" underneath their name...i have no doubt that they'd practically lose their minds.

    They should arrest the fag and lock it up in a secure hospital and try and cure it .

    A lovely throwaway word fag is; no amount of trying to reclaim it or take the sting out of it by the poofters and their enablers has ever worked and never will !

    Dear homos,
    don't waste your energy getting mad at normal folk, get mad at yourself and see if you can get yourself well soon.

    a female related to you (wife, daughter, sister) goes into a store and at the counter the cashier says "here's your receipt, you dirty whore".

    seriously, only the cashier and your wife/daughter/sister herself knew.

    or as in the case with the OP, it was actually written on the receipt.

    that would be completely fine with you? you wouldn't seek any recourse whatsoever. after all, only your wife/daughter/sister and the cashier heard or read it. so what's the big deal, right?

    Anyway,

    I have taught my lady friend to refer to gays and ladyboys as " Mincers ", we have taught the girl in the coffee shop down stairs this as well.

    Sounds funny as fuk, hearing a Thai girl refer to Gays as " Mincers "

    Give it a crack.

    some people teach their children to refer to asians as "slopes". funny as fuck to hear a child refer to an asian as "slope".

    maybe if your 'lady friend' goes to australia and someone there in a coffee shop calls her a slope, you can all have a good laugh about it.

    This happened at a restaurant last year and it turned out to be a complete hoax by the complainant.

    Dayna Morales claimed that a couple didn't tip her and left her an anti-gay note on the receipt. Photo: Facebook
    A New Jersey waitress who raked in thousands in donations after claiming a couple didn’t tip her because she’s gay was fired from her job on Saturday.
    Dayna Morales, 22, was finally canned from Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater — nearly a month after she made national headlines over what’s likely a hoax.

    The lesson to be learned for anyone who tries to be cute, a clever dick, or throw a wild tantrum - and either publish it, stick it on Facebook, or carry it out in front of people holding a smartphone, is that you will lose your job, make an charley of yourself, and all the non-PC people on the internet who bleat in support of you won't send you any money despite your new 'celebrity status'.

    As I said, (reply strangely deleted) my reply 'And what'. was in reply to this.
    a female related to you (wife, daughter, sister) goes into a store and at the counter the cashier says "here's your receipt, you dirty whore".
    seriously, only the cashier and your wife/daughter/sister herself knew.
    If only the cashier and your wife/daughter/sister herself knew then I wouldn't even know so 'be okay with me'? something I didn't know about?
    WTF are you on about.
    I can tell you though, if it was my wife or my sister they would get a serious ear bashing, but I doubt anyone would go boo hooing all over the internet about it.
