After reading your letter, I tried to fill the gaps in your story. You leave out so much that I came to the conclusion that you got upset that the BK lounge does not offer a military discount, and took it out on the poor employees. Then the manager refused you service because you were being irate.
I just cant believe that a manager would refuse service ONLY because you were in the military. I dont know ANYONE who is THAT against the military that they would not even serve a stupid burger at their job. Against the war, maybe, but not against the military itself. I mean, I'm sure there are nuts out there, but I dont know of any, and I really doubt thats what happened here.
If I am wrong, please, feel free to fill in the gaps of this story yourself and prove me wrong.
Heres my opinion on military discounts (mind you i am not in the military, or know anyone IN the military, so i do feel that my opinion is a little less valid then someone who has served or married to someone who has served) That they are definitly a nice gesture, and it really does show that the company supports the military, but it isnt mandantory and does not make the company completely unpatriotic and undeserving of business.
