This is INSANE!!! The Daily Mail reports:
A Texas teenager was suspended from his cookie store job after a customer became upset when he paid for a police officer’s order.
Zachary Randolph, 18, was suspended from his job at a Great American Cookies mall after he bought a police officer a brownie out of his own wages on Sunday.
The teen from Katy, Texas, said upper management put him on temporary leave for a week because another family complained that he didn’t buy their cookies as well.
Randolph said the customers in line who overheard the interaction became upset and threatened to beat him up because he was racist and promised to get him fired.
His mom describes what happened next:
This customer started verbally attacking him, calling my son a racist, and threatened to beat him up. His wife threatened to go back there and slap him.
‘The middle aged man sat down his little daughter and tried to come behind the counter to attack him. Thankfully his coworker defused the situation. The man then said “I will get you fired”.
I guess it must be against store policy to be kind at Great American Cookies.
He should’ve gotten a raise for doing something for a cop!!!!!!
