Burger King Complaint - Unfair Treatment Of Customer
SAN JACINTO, CALIFORNIA -- Shame on to whom it may concern. I have been dining at this establishment once or twice a week for more than a year. I come here because it is the only place in town serving vegetarian burgers and because it is fast and convenient as my place of business is only a few blocks away.
Recently I wrote a poem about the eyes of a girl in your employ and I gave a copy of it to her as a gift. I am an artist and a poet, when I create something it is important for me to share it with the person who inspired it. I do not feel I should have to explain myself on this point but lately, when dining in your restaurant, I have perceived a negative attitude toward me by your staff. I particular, I have noticed that the girl I gave the poem to, at her own reservation, or at the behest of the management, goes away ( into the back somewhere), when I come into the restraint.
In my intentions, there is noting to apologize for. I do not know the girl any better than I know any of the rest of your staff. The poem I wrote was not about her, it was about her eyes and where they took me in a particular moment, a moment which passed as fast as it came. If I have in any way caused the girl to feel uncomfortable in my presence, to her I apologize emphatically, I am an intense individual and am prone to being taken the wrong way occasionally.
I would like it to be known that I have been made to feel terribly uncomfortable in your restaurant to the point that I will not be eating there anymore. Let it further be known that a copy of this letter has been sent to your corporate office for their consideration. I am hurt and enraged that it is not possible in this day and age of supposed equality and freedom of expression, that I would be chastised and convicted for what began (and still is ), intended as a gesture of thanks for just helping to contribute to my creativity. I will not be treated as a weirdo or as some kind of stalker type for having freely given the gift of my words. I never expected any reciprocity other than possibly a thank you and a smile. The gift was intended to make the girl feel beautiful and good. They were not a proclamation of love or longing,
I hope that whoever is responsible for this situation is made to realize that, as I see things, I write them down, the actions of your restaurant and staff have caused me great pause and loss of sleep. I am a good person and wish prosperity for everyone around me, all I ask in return is not to be stifled.
Along with the copy of this letter that has gone to your corporate office, I am also sending copies to local media outlets and am in consult with an advocate from the NAACP.
