Why did you take the job at the supermarket if you knew that you’d be asked to handle pork, alcohol and tobacco products?
Why did you decide to become a cab driver if you weren’t going to take fares from people who smoke, or drink, or have dogs, or have a juicy ham sandwich in their greasy little fist?
Now, you may consider it “intolerant” of us wacky westerners to ask you to do otherwise, but it’s not intolerance if you know ahead of time that it’s going to be a requirement of the position! One might begin to suspect that you had some sort of, how you say, an agenda?
Don’t want to get your mitts dirty handling “unclean” foods? Don’t get a job in the %$&%*#’ing deli!
So, cry me a river, Muslim grocery clerks when we don’t seem too sympathetic to your “plight.” Your brethren for years seemed to have little problem dishing out the warmed over hot dogs and MadDog 20/20 at 7-11. Why so squeamish all of a sudden?
