I was transfered to a picture tube (CRT) rebuilding plant in Arizona. It was a surprisingly small shop that needed expansion & upgrades. I was put in charge of everything. The shop accepted walk-in business as well. One day after most of the work was finished, a clean-cut hispanic walked in with his wife & two small children. He wanted his color TV picture tube rejuvenated as the red gun was a little low. He explained to me he wanted the TV to be 'right' as he sells items at the local flea market.
One of the plant part-time employees of middle age came forth and said in front of everyone- 'we do not serve your type'.
I was instantly inraged. To say this with such blatant disrespect to the man & his family present. I fired the bastar* and promptly fixed the TV.
That was 25 years ago.
