But they don't have a problem with the big set of blue bull nutts swinging under the bumper? These people need to get a life. Telling someone to speak English or get out is not racist. It applies to a multitude of people and does not really single anybody out. The rebel flag I just don't get myself. I thought it was cool when I was a kid but seriously you rebel rednecks just need to just give it up already.

If you think you find guaranteed employment elsewhere I say stick to your guns and call their bluff but otherwise you may want to reach a compromise.

Rebel Flag = Red Neck to me, and so does your tail gate.


EDIT: Did not notice your user name. Guess you just don't care, LOL.

Well

Because my mouth usually gets me in trouble, I'd ask them just how they were planning to fire me because of it.
