The investigation began in July 2019 after posts surfaced in a secret Facebook group called “I’m 10-15.” They questioned the authenticity of images of a migrant father and child dead on the banks of the Rio Grande River and depicted doctored images of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez purporting to perform a sex act on President Donald Trump.
I remember Corporate coming down and giving us a series of talks up in the warehouse lunchroom about company rules when we went from working for an independent contractor to working for Safeway back around the beginning of 2002, all part of our company orientation.
This woman is in a business suit and trying to tell us that we're 'company representatives' even during our off-time and we need to conduct ourselves as such and not to do anything that might embarrass the company or we'll get canned.
Roger, one of the Pinoy Boys, stands up and says "Wait a minute. You mean to tell me that if me and my wife are shopping at Safeway and she gets mouthy with me and I slap the shit out of her, I can be fired if they know I work for Safeway's warehouse?"
The babe giving the talk looks a little flustered for a second, regains her composure, clears her throat and says "Yes, that's correct. If you do that, you will be fired."
Roger says "Fuck that shit, I'm doing my shopping at Albertson's then." The entire lunchroom erupted in laughter.
Class was over for the day.
One more about Roger:
The very next day the (female) Personnel Manager for Corporate is there to give us a talk about the Company's policy on sexual harassment. Pinoy is sitting on the far side of the room with all the other Filipinos and the P.M. between him and the door. He sees me and my buddy Rick walk in, jumps up and hollers "Kenny Lane! Rick Marshall! Come here and let me give you some Asian love, motherfuckers!" and meets us halfway, right in front of the woman, then throws his arms around me and sticks his fucking tongue in my ear, then proceeds to chase Rick down and does the same to him.
After the class is over, me, Rick and Pinoy are all up in the warehouse manager's office supposedly to get our asses chewed out to satisfy the Personnel Manager and the boss is laughing so hard he's fucking crying and all he can say is "You bunch of wild motherfuckers, you're going to get us all fired" before he goes into another giggling fit.
