24. Probably among the many who think this is all a big stupid fuss over a single word uttered

159-thousand years ago.

AND.

IT.

IS.

NOT!!!!!!!

It's about the abhorrent and appalling working environment she was warned about repeatedly and to which she turned a blind eye - because it was her brother Bubba who was accused of it - AND HE'S ADMITTED TO DOING EVERY ONE OF THOSE THINGS. Racist behavior, sexist behavior, abusive behavior, obscene behavior, watching pornography openly - IN THE WORKPLACE - in the presence of the rest of the staff (how many of them might have been under-age girls?), ordering the darker-skinned black employees to stay out of sight, use the back door, forcing himself on the female manager, threatening her, brutalizing her, it just went on and on and on and on, if you read the complaint. Just the worst Neanderthal behavior and exhibited mindset I've ever seen documented! It wasn't just one little bitty excusable thing "because that's just our Southern cuuuuuuuuuulture...," it was a mountain of things. A whole mountain RANGE of things!

It was a repeated and consistent display SO awful that I'd daresay NONE of the many many Bible-quoting whiners on the Food Network's Facebook page, referring to passages about forgiveness and non-judgmentalism when they were being the most judgmental of all, would be okay with their daughters having to work under those conditions! It was the kind of behavior that the Food Network's very own "Restaurant Stakeout" star, Willie Degel, would NOT have tolerated for a nano-second. HE would have roared into there and fired that Bubba's ass after watching just even a little bit of that!

And that she still doesn't get it (or maybe she does but she just can't admit it) - Paula, BE GONE!!!

And btw - I've seen numerous complaints about the pots and pans - registered by consumers who complain the paint comes off in the food, the bottom buckles and warps, and after a year or two, they're basically unusable - and often more of an actual health hazard.
