    Domino's Delivers Racism To Your Front Door In Under 30 Minutes - The Consumerist

    Sad, and funny all at the same time. A better question is, why was the driver fired? The message was printed on the receipt tape. Do drivers normally actually print the receipts? If so, do they have the ability to add messages to the receipts while not at home base?






    Also on a side note: The site where I got the story from, Fark, has a comments sections. In the comments section it was noted repeatedly that it is common knowledge that black people, on the whole, either tip poorly or not at all. Fark leans center-left (although not by a lot), has a user base that is pretty well educated, and is a place where I would not think that the users by-and-large are racist, lean racist, or display the genteel racism that some on the left display, and yet these assertions were not really challenged in the over 200+ replies. Comments here: http://www.fark.com/cgi/comments.pl?IDLink=5571267

    Having never worked in the food service, or tip based jobs, is this actually true?

    Yeah, which begs the question, did this driver actually input that?

    Probably not a title that would provoke a lot of anger and therefore posts. I'm noticing that about my threads lately. :lol:

    My humor is just too subtle.

    I think I should have put "****** DON'T TIP" in the title. It would have at least gotten more hits.

    Oh well. Win some, lose some.

    "Attractive and successful" (codewords for black), "african-american" (outright black in case you missed the codewords) "maintains balance exceptionally well" (she stays upright. she doesn't "tip").
