Wal-Mart Apologizes to Muslim Woman who Complained she was Mocked by Cashier in Utah Store

RIVERDALE, Utah (AP) — Wal-Mart Stores Inc. apologized to a Muslim woman who said she was mocked because of her face veil.

“Please don’t stick me up,” a cashier told the shopper on Feb. 2, according to The Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Wal-Mart apologized Monday in a letter signed by Rolando Rodriquez, a vice president and regional general manager. It was released Tuesday by the council’s Nevada chapter.

“I can assure you that the associate in question was disciplined in accordance with our employment policies as a result of the situation,” Rodriguez said without disclosing details.

Rodriguez said employees at the Riverdale store would undergo “sensitivity training,” specifically in the Islamic faith and Muslim culture.

You see what happens when you try to be personable with one of the body-snatched zombies in our midst? In fact, the cashier was giving a compliment, pretending to mistake the customer’s terrorist garb for that of an old-west bank robber. The poor employee thought that by showing some personality, he or she could bring out this customer’s personality — only to find that there is but one, collective, Islamic personality.

The cashier also clearly didn’t realize that Muslims dwelling among infidels are starved for offense and therefore live for these moments, limited as they are for the most part to mere blogs for their insult-scouting. It was a satisfying day for a Muslim, as evidenced by the fact that the exchange with the cashier was prosecuted to the fullest extent of attention.

Soon our society will be as humorless and morose as the Muslim world. Think final scene of “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.”
