SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT

Posted:

Wellma “Tootie” Shafer, 46, was fired as a cashier at Last Chance Market in Russell, Iowa, after a customer reported her engaging in “sexual” banter at the register. Her boss, Rick 
Braaksma, explained, “We cannot ... talk about 
adult situations in front of other customers.” Shafer sought unemployment compensation; Braaksma challenged it. Among the items Last Chance sells are Wake the F- Up Coffee, The Hottest F-ing Sauce (noted, the label states, for its “ass-burning quality”), and The Hottest F-ing Nuts (all product names using the explicit “F word”), and a state administrative judge granted Shafer benefits, showing (according to an April Des Moines Register item) little sympathy for the store’s contradictory policy.
