Running Backwards As Fast As They Can

John Metz, the Denny's franchisee who announced he was going to put a surcharge on meals and suggested that customers deduct the surcharge from the tip, got his chain yanked by Denny's CEO. Metz sheepishly announced there is no surcharge. I don't have proof, but I suspect Metz greedy little plan ran afoul of his contract with Denny's. Denny's CEO was outraged because Metz had shit on the entire Denny's image and stores across the country were getting angry phone calls and losing customers because of Metz.

Papa John Schnatter is backpedaling his post-election threats. Now he's claiming he was "misquoted" and that he has no intention of taking out Obama's reelection on his employees. I suspect his stores have been getting more angry phone calls than pizza orders.

Right-wing bloggers are whining that the First Amendment rights of Metz and Schantter are being violated by customers boycotting their businesses. As for Denny's. That company has a long history of racism. Metz fits right in with their continuing corporate culture.

They are always "misquoted", aren't they?
