Ignorance Isn't Bliss with Offensive Words
Apparently, the snack machine isn't working quite right. How do I know? Someone posted a sign on it that said "use exact change or you will be gypped." Let's forget that someone was basically accusing our company of cheating someone out of money, and look at the word the person used. Is "gypped" offensive? I always thought it was a slur against the nomadic people of Europe and Asia. Even if the question of whether it is a slur is open to debate, it's not a word we want posted on our snack machine!
