Now if we could just get cowbells and sombreros outlawed in all restaurants the victory will be completed!
I hate the birthday celebration more than anyone but did she not know that is what a waitress at Razoo does. That is like bring a law suit against a strip club you work at because someone put a dollar in you thong.
I disagree - "Birthday singing" isn't mandatory for a waitress. She offered to watch the other waitresses tables for them which was reasonable. Her request was based on her religion - not based on "I don't want to." I don't have to agree w/her religion to feel she was resonable in her request and her request should have been granted.
I always hated refilling the pepper shakers when I waited tables, I wonder if any religion addresses that?
I completely agree with 11:12
Religion is a choice and people should have the RIGHT to practice their religion but should NOT have the RIGHT to impose THEIR religious beliefs on their employer or how their employer practices business.If a Jehovah Witness does not celebrate birthdays they should choose to work somewhere as a waitress that does NOT as a regular business practice require waitstaff to celebrate the birthdays of their employer's patrons.What is being argued in the suit is no different than if a Jainist (Follower of Jainism which holds Ahimsa: "Do not injure, abuse, oppress, enslave, insult, torment, torture, or kill any creature or living being." as it's highest tenet.) was working for an exterminator and refused to kill bugs and only wanted to drive the truck and mix the chemicals.Incidentally, there are approximately 5 million Jains in India and an additional 2 million worldwide.
Razzos should be put out of business for forced "atmosphere" and the horrible attempts at Cajun food. Perhaps this is a good beginning for that.
Yea, Barry...they wouldn't have to decorate for Christmas either.
The big Birthday sing song hoopla is a big buzz kill.It should be outlawed.............
But she is not actually participating in the celebration. It's not her birthday. She is performing an employment service. Are Jehovah's witnesses not allowed to work in the birthday cake section of a Kroger? Are they not allowed to work at Starbucks and serve someone on their birthday? Or the register at a store where someone buys a birthday gift? Same thing. In this case the person was not part of a birthday celebration. It is a condition of employment, so just don't work there to begin with.
Hope this applies to Joe's Crab shack, too. All that birthday parading is distracting and annoying.
