The owners of a dog-walking service in Missouri, who are clearly wound way too tight for living on this planet, have refused to serve a long-time customer because she shared that picture on Facebook of a girl selling Girl Scout cookies in front of a marijuana dispensary.
It all started when Tricia Moyer, a mother of two and a Girl Scout troop leader, thought the idea of a thirteen-year-old with the business sense to sell delicious Thin Mints outside of a marijuana dispensary was funny. So she did what tens of thousands of other Americans did and shared a photo on Facebook.
Tricia didn’t realize that the owners of her dog-walking service — Pack Leader, Plus Inc. — are devout Christians who don’t believe there was anything funny about it at all.
“[We] were upset by the pic with the Girls Scouts selling cookies outside of a government-funded drug house because they knew a bunch of whacked-out dope fiends would buy a bunch of cookies,” said Tom Ziegler, co-owner of Pack Leader, Plus, told the Moyers in an e-mail. “We think this is appalling and not funny or cute.”
And so the Zieglers decided to end their business relationship with the Moyers.
“We have a zero-tolerance policy,” Tom Ziegler tells us. “We don’t tolerate any drug users or people who think drugs are OK. Just like we wouldn’t tolerate child molesters or rapists, we don’t tolerate drugs.”
Oh yes, because smoking a joint is just like rape and child molestation. What are you, fucking high? The irony here is that these people are more badly in need of smoking a joint than anyone I’ve ever seen. Lighten up, Francis.
