Man This Guy Must Be Hating His Life Right About Now


#1

Usually I would post this in the Lounge, but I couldn’t help but face palm at this. The incident:

Now usually this is where the story would end, but it gets even better:

So the guy loses a $100,000 plus job for being a complete sideshow clown on tv. For those of you who don’t know, his employer Hydro One is one of the most lucrative places you can work for here in Ontario(government job and benefits that most people will never see). Man I can’t even imagine how that meeting went when he got called into the HR office…

All I read from that post is that Canada fucking sucks and there’s no reason to live there if you love freedom.


#3

That said, I’m tired of the FHRITP shit. It was funny for like two days. Now every twat does it and I’m sick of seeing it. And how did the reporter who wrote that article even find it was directed at women? Both men and women have had to deal with people screaming that phrase into the mic. It has nothing to do with the gender of the reporter. Way to squeeze that one in.

The company who fired him sucks ass.

Dank memes now officially illegal in Canada?


#5

Well I missed that meme then… I didn’t even know that phrase was a “thing” recently.

In today’s world where people are entitled to not have their feelings hurt for 2 seconds (because that’s the worst thing that could happen to you, I guess…“Cat-calls” are more of a serious, pressing issue than world poverty, racism, and the various incurable diseases, y’know.)…it was foolish of him to be on live television saying he finds it funny…because this is the result you get now. I mean, really---- with a cool 100k+ salary + benefits on the line; why do ANYTHING to risk that shit? C’mon now. No good results will come from that situation. What did he think would happen once news of that inevitably got back to the suits-in-power at work?

A good, solid income is far more important than most other things in life…this is also why it’s wise to never really say anything beyond “hey.”/“hello.” to women in the workplace, along with making sure to NOT be anywhere alone with them for any length of time.

Canada doesn’t have freedom of speech like America does. In fact, you can get sued for hurting feelings. It happened to a comedian up there and now some comedians refuse to perform in the country.


#7

Just because it happens to men it doesn’t make it less of a problem for womyn


#8

hahahaha Fucking owned

Act like an idiot, get treated like an idiot.


#9

morality clauses suck, but then again making six figures sure is nice.


#10

My company is big too.
And they wouldn’t let this shit fly if an employee was caught doing something in the public eye.

Especially if it’s a gov’t job.


#11

“Oh my mom would die laughing eventually.”

Well, looks like now your mom will die supporting you financially.


#12

Most good jobs have those. They want employees acting like idiots and it getting back to the company thus making it look bad. GGs for him, shouldn’t have been an ass clown. You wouldn’t believe the hoops teachers have to jump through because of things like that in the teacher contracts. Such is life.

Edit: dude wasn’t even the one to say it. Apparently this is a thing in Canada though. Leaving the whole thing up because Code of Conducts are still some shit. On to more canadian hilarity:


#13

#14

None of that was Canadian

Glad they’re gonna do shit to stop this dumb thing.

Also glad he got fired.


#17

No, but the police pretty much said “next guy who tries this, will be”.

“So far none of the reporters want charges laid,” said Const. Victor Kwong of the Toronto police. “Bottom line is, if the reporters did want to file a report with us, they absolutely can.”

In Calgary, police have issued a statement to broadcasters that the activity constitutes grounds for a charge and arrest.

“We haven’t taken it as far as what Calgary has done because in Calgary apparently it was quite rampant and quite common,” Kwong said."


#18

As a Canadian who has this being the first instance I’ve heard of this, I have to say THIS is what all the giant media shit was up in arms about? I thought he was going to be dropping c-bombs or saying absolutely insane shit. Yeah, what he said was stupid and he was a tool, but to make a giant issue out of something so consequential when she should’ve just ignored him entirely? That doesn’t help things at all.


#19

im sorry but i find FHRITP hilar AF. Those guys are dumb for just continuing to stand there though i would have said it and moved on

we also need to bring back planking


#20
