That response by McCrory didn't say much. It did add some new things though. I didn't know that McCrory was with his family. I do see the bird being inappropriate in that setting, honestly. If an employee of mine gave the bird to someone in my place of business on top of saying something inappropriate to them, you can bet your ass he'd be standing in the unemployment line. I mean, it wouldn't have to be a governor. You can't run a business with employees like that. So, if that happened as McCrory said it did and if his family was sitting there with him when that happened, I'm concerned that you, Gary, thought it would be appropriate and that the cook shouldn't have been disciplined and even discharged.
I know you want to make McCrory out be a whiner and complainer and thin skinned here with your post. But, even though I can be called biased, I disagree with you that this was a "slight too small" (especially considering his family was there) and I also disagree McCrory's response in the letter you linked was "silly, petty and self-pitying".
But, innuendo and rhetoric and spin is what people in your position do. I understand your purpose here and I know your objective in posting what you posted in the way you did it. I think you've lowered yourself a little, Gary. This presentation by you was not your finest.
