So I was strolling around on DDO like I normally do on a day off and I came across a debate over Chours are slavery and was reading it as it was an interesting topic and I came across the user known as DPowell to accuse me of working at Wendy's for only $3.50 per hour when I never worked at Wendy's before in my life let alone fast food. http://www.debate.org...

My first job well official job was Wendy's making $5.15 an hour. I remember in the interview the manager asked if 5.15 sounded good and I said yes, lol.

I still find it offensive that someone accused me of working for pennies at a place I never worked at before and this is something that is not okay. I'm okay if people site me for sources and what not, but when it is a lie then it's not okay in any circumstance.

Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

Yes but the accusation of working their is an insult because he's implying that he thinks you have a lack of intelligence because the stigma is that fast food workers aren't smart.

He's refuring to HInkle and that is also showing that I associate with idiots and thus calling myself an idiot.

Do you, in fact, have a friend that works/did work at Wendy's?
Why is it an insult to you to have a friend work there?

I'm a friend with both whom are working at Wendy's.

Yes.

Well it's the fact that it's an insult and on top of that people also stereotype Kansans as stupid and this makes this worse as it's now a double negative.

He called him his friend as well... I doubt he's calling himself an idiot.

I see my opponents point. But I can say that it's not illegal to pay under minimum wage. A friend of mine and lannan13's used to work at Wendy's and he was given only 1-2 day a week to work and was only being paid 3.50.

Did you read the context of that. He said of friend of his *and* yours worked there. Implying that you had a mutual friend, not that it was you

Now he thinks he's being called an idiot by his being associated with an idiot. lannan's not an idiot, but he's currently acting like one (sorry lannan, you are).

But, you are stereotyping him as associating you with your "stupid" friend.
Be the change.

It is only offensive if you want it to be, and you are playing victim of a generalization while generalizing his intent, and DDO's analysis of it.

I haven't tried Wendy's yet after I've moved to Canada, but everyone here seems to love the food and the service.

So I was strolling around on DDO like I normally do on a day off and I came across a debate over Chours are slavery and was reading it as it was an interesting topic and I came across the user known as DPowell to accuse me of working at Wendy's for only $3.50 per hour when I never worked at Wendy's before in my life let alone fast food. http://www.debate.org...
