After hearing the words ‘bruh’ and ‘cuz’ on a daily basis, one Chick-fil-A manager decided to implement a policy for employees of his restaurant which would ban them from using slang at work. He put together a comprehensive list of banned terms and one of his amused employees posted it to Reddit, with the explanation, “I work at Chick-fil-a and Eric, our manager, is tired of our s***.” Eric handed the list to his employees with the warning, “You will speak properly when you walk through these doors.”
It includes ‘bae’ (baby or sweetie), ‘cuz’ (because), ‘or naw’ (oh no), ‘ratchet’ (trashy), ‘guh’ (irritated or angry) and ‘fam’ (loved ones, such as friends or family).
It also features ‘3hunnid’, in reference to the phrase ‘Keeping it 300’ – made famous by Kanye West – which describes how someone is ‘300percent real and honest’ as opposed to the traditional ‘100’.
According to the list, the words ‘on fleek’ (on point or really great), ‘bruh’, ‘zero’ and ‘one hundred’, ‘fool’, ‘about a week ago’, ‘Felicia’, ‘Salty’, ‘Childish’ and ‘Turn up’ are banned.
And the phrases ‘I’m legally blind’ and ‘chill’ (in its casual, rest-oriented context) are not allowed.
“You are a professional so speak professionally,” added Eric. Any employee who breaks the ban on slang is subject to having their employee meal privileges revoked.
Chick-fil-A has never been one to appease the PC Police, and they don’t look like they’re going to start now. Some are calling Eric’s list “racist,” as such slang is predominately used by the black community and those who live the thug lifestyle.
Do you think Eric’s new policy will make this Chick-fil-A location a better place for customers and employees alike? Tell us in the comments section!
