…than to be fired in North Carolina:
CHARLOTTE — An employee at a Myers Park gourmet food store was fired after Gov. Pat McCrory’s security detail complained Sunday about a comment the worker made to the governor.
It seems that the low-paid cook at the store didn’t like the Governor (who does? Maybe dude lives near the poisoned water?), and said “Thanks for nothing” to him, which upset McCrory’s delicate fee-fees, and later he sent his security detail to talk to the owner.
This might seem like a story of customer service gone wrong, but really, a public official with such a thin skin that he would seek retribution for being slighted at a public location?
The mind boggles.
This isn’t exactly about bullying, but it is not exactly not, either. This is about the powerful and the powerless, and McCrory using his position and authority to exact the respect he thinks he deserves. That is not the behavior of a leader, that’s an adolescent boy.
