Fast food restaurants are always looking for convenient ways to make your life easier, and a Taco John’s in South Dakota has come up with a remarkable new innovation.
The Yankton restaurant made a 16-year-old employee named Tyler Brandt wear a nametag reading “Gaytard,” making it simple and convenient for consumers to identify Tyler as a retarded homosexual. Great idea!
Tyler claims the manager forced him to endure lots of abuse, and didn’t want to jeopardize his job so he went along with it, miserably. Finally, after the nametag ordeal, he quit.
Why didn’t he quit sooner? Who knows. We can probably assume that he wasn’t looking forward to a lifetime of satisfying employment with Taco John’s, but for whatever reason he stuck around, emboldening his abuser until things reached a breaking point with the name tag.
The manager claims that Tyler wanted the nickname, which definitely sounds true. Yes sir, absolutely.
To their credit, when the corporate office found out about all this, they were not amused. They called it “deplorable,” promised nothing like it would ever happen again, and arranged to have the manager chopped up and made into 200 delicious tacos. Just kidding! He was probably fired or something; they didn’t say.
But of course, Tyler doesn’t have much legal recourse here. South Dakota doesn’t have any workplace protection for LGBTs, so managers are free to fire someone just for thinking they might be gay-ish.
The real question, of course, is why would anyone in their right mind eat a taco in South Dakota.
