Fast food restaurant accused of writing ‘b*tch’ on woman’s sandwich — but here’s what really happened

Published

On Wednesday, The Daily Mail reported that a South Carolina man stormed into a Jimmy John’s restaurant in Greenville, and demanded to speak with the manager about why an employee had written “b*tch” on his wife’s sandwich order.

“My wife took her sandwich out of the bag and we see THIS!” Robert Barnes wrote on Facebook. “Seriously? Oh, not today, not today!”

But it turned out the whole thing was an unfortunate misunderstanding.

Barnes’ wife, Colleen, had ordered a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich with cheese, and a worker in the kitchen wrote “Blt ch” on the wrapper in order to designate what the order was. Viewed out of context, the “l” looked like an “i” and harmless kitchen shorthand became an offensive slur.

After Barnes demanded a confused employee explain why the word was written on his wife’s sandwich, the worker replied, “Because you ordered a BLT with cheese?”

“To which I replied, ‘Oh,'” wrote Barnes sheepishly on Facebook.

The incident has gone viral since it was first posted on September 10, with over 105,000 people reacting to it on social media. “Nah that was also subliminal lol there are other ways to write that lol,” commented one user.

"You know why we're going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on our border. And they didn't have it," said Trump. "And we're building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we're building a wall in Colorado. We're building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works — you can't get over, you can't get under. And we're building a wall in Texas. And we're not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned. And Louisiana's incredible."

Published

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow noted that Vice President Mike Pence got thrown into the impeachment scandal by President Donald Trump's own lawyers.

In a bizarre comment in court a few weeks ago, has been revealed with the release of documents. Unfortunately for Pence, it happened again. Trump's lawyers debated with judges and opposing counsel whether Trump could, in fact, shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and be prosecuted. The president's lawyers argued that not only could they not prosecute him, but they also couldn't stop him either.

Published

on

President Donald Trump thinks he will win New Mexico. He's repeated the factoid multiple times, including to a group of oil and gas workers and executives Wednesday at a conference in Pittsburgh, PA. But he also made two significant mistakes to put that support in jeopardy.

First, the president indicated he was building his "wall" on the border of Colorado, which is north of New Mexico. It would mean that New Mexico was now part of Mexico.

Second, it was reported by the Albuquerque Journal that their city is yet another one Trump's campaign is refusing to pay for security costs.
