Chicago restaurant fires employee over three words a cop found written on his receipt

News & Politics

A popular eatery in Chicago fired an employee after a social media post claimed that the employee wrote an anti-cop message on an officer’s receipt.

The post appeared on a Facebook page of a person friendly with the Chicago cop, according to WMAQ-TV.

“A very dear friend of mine, placed a to go order at Happy Camper in Wrigley today,” the post read. “He is a Chicago Police Detective and has to be in full uniform and riot ready at any time. 12-16 hr days 6-7 days a week. When picking up, he noticed this note left by the cashier.”

The receipt had a very simple three-word message: “quit your job.”

The officer said he tipped the cashier for the food but later decided to throw out the meal in case someone had spat in it.

“This is unacceptable. Everyone is entitled to their feelings and political views, but definitely not when it comes to a professional environment. Where did people learn to disrespect the people that are paying their bills? How can any business allow this to happen?” asked the officer’s friend who posted the message.

The restaurant responded in a statement that the cashier in question was quickly identified and fired.

“Our company works incredibly hard to provide a positive and enjoyable experience for all customers,” read the statement.

“Upon learning this morning about an incident last night involving a customer, we immediately took action to terminate the employee,” the statement said. “We sincerely and humbly apologize – the action of one does not accurately reflect who we are as a company. We have zero tolerance for any behavior that doesn’t give our customers the full respect they deserve.”

The restaurant added that it reached out to the officer and apologized personally and offered “a full refund and provide a gift card to his restaurant of choice.”

Some food service workers use their jobs to voice their antagonism and animosity against law enforcement officers, but many of them lose their jobs after a public outrage. In one example from 2019, two employees of a North Carolina fast food restaurant were quickly sent to the unemployment line after they refused to serve a veteran police officer.

  1. Hell yes fire that ass.. Thanks to all the Police and Fire personnel for your services, even if you have to save someone who hates you!

  2. If fired for cause, they are not eligible for unemployment for a period of time in most states. They should be barred from receiving any public benefits for their bigotry and assault verbally, or physically (by spitting in food or beverage) and charges should be filed against them so the world knows who these people are and what kind of people they are. Time for a real re-education of America and the real causes of violence – criminals, criminal behavior, and wantabe criminals that are cowards and don’t want to be found out. Hatred taught becomes hatred in behavior.

    1. Totally agree respect our officers, and service men, and health care, and fire department people. They try had to help us.

  3. Most of us really like police because they are our protection against the “wretched refuse” of Society. But, the 1% of the Cops that are bad, rude, or stop us for it think misdemeanors cause the other police such trouble with the citizens they profess to protect and serve. That is why lawyers always tell clients to never talk to police if they are stopped and questioned. Even innocent talk could get you in trouble with any law enforcement official. So, it is best to never volunteer information to police, and only show ID WHEN DEMANDED, but nothing else. Yes, respect the police, but do not think they are friendly because they act so. It is good to remember this: police can legally lie to you, but you cannot lie to them. They can nail you with “obstruction” charges if you are caught in a lie, which always leads to more trouble. Cops sometimes have the hardest jobs in the world, but you do not have to answer questions past providing ID, license, registration, and insurance, plus you do not have to agree to searches unless they have a hand signed warrant to search your person, vehicle, or home. Always exercise your 4th and 5th Amendment rights granted to you by the law of the land – our Constitution.
