Emails from an asshole... (me)

This is an exchange from some moron on CL I thought would be funny. Doesn't really fit anywhere else...

Hiring based on physical appearance is discrimination.

Subject: Re: Need 2 servers for Taigates at private parking lot for home games. (Pittsburgh)

I am the last person to discriminate. I am latino. You do not even know me. Makes you a hippocrit.

================================================== ==
Then why do you need a picture?

================================================== ==
Why? First of all why do u care to respond? Second you do not have to send a pic. It helps for us to deal with replys.My partner is my mom! You do not know us.
Eddie
================================================== ==
Why do you need a picture of anything on craigslist community?
You want my moms and I personal info( our business) just ask. You a hater, then I cannot help u with your insecurity.
Eddie
================================================== ==
How old are you? Do you question every establishment that posts an ad? Do you have a job or is it u cannot get a job? Thats your deal. I always had a job since i was 16. Why do you have the time to waste on me? YOU DO NOT KNOW ME!!!!!!!

================================================== ==
Mr. Figallo,

First, Iíd like to say Iíve copy/pasted all of the emails into this one for continuity. This will allow my reply to make a little more sense since all of the communications will be contained herein.

At any rate, I appreciate your prompt response and professional demeanor. Iím 26 and have a job that I enjoy, however Iím looking for a second. I do, however, question your motives when you say you need a picture with an application. You state you donít discriminate, then call me a ďhater,Ē because I questioned you. Iím not sure what youíre insinuating. One would believe that youíre accusing me of being an ugly fatty thatís unsuccessful. If this is not the case, then clearly the assumption is on my part but that is how you make it feel.

Iím just not sure how it is that you can post a position for two girls with pictures and not expect someone to assume youíre hiring both based on gender and physical appearance. Donít get me wrong - $15 an hour is an excellent pay rate however big, ugly girls need love to, donít they? That isnít to say Iím either big nor ugly as I can assure you Iím neither. I just find it pretty offensive that you would put that in your request.

Sincerely,
R.J.

p.s.
Being Latino doesnít exclude you from being racist, sexist or discriminatory in any way. In fact, if George Lopez and Carlos Mencia are any indication, Latino families are just as bad as traditional Chinese and the KKK and you have yet to prove otherwise.


================================================== ==
Okay. I know you are intelligent. It just seems you are picking on me when you should really read the rest of the ads posted on craigs. Buckhead Salon will not hire you unless you are atrractive. No one in the southside will hire you unless you are attractive. Pick on those big boys. I do not exclude myself from being a minority atall. Why do people in this community waNT PHOTOS FOR ANYTHING?

Eddie

P.S. Here is my cell # 412-913-5572

You Call Me after you can go after every bar/nightclub owner and ask them the same question.
================================================== ==
Have to ask. Are you a lawyer?
Eddie

================================================== ==
Again, Iíd like to consolidate emails since youíve sent more than one in response to one of mine.

Let me make sure Iím on the same page. You admit youíre hiring based on appearance and basically excusing your actions because other big, bad companies (ie. Buckheads,) do the same?... Itís a shame a proud Latino man would stoop so low as to hire based on physical appearances and prey on those with ugly girlfriends, wives or no woman in their life. Not only is it shameful that you wonít hire an ugly girl, sir, but the fact that you would use physical appearances to further your business in the great city of Pittsburgh is a damn shame. Unless youíre planning on using your stand as a dating service, Iím not exactly sure how this is good for the community.

To answer your question, no Ė Iím not a lawyer.


================================================== ==
Just moved back from Austin, Texas. Look at what they are lloking for. Go and question ehics and discrimination in a San Diego market. This is all you have to do. i admit to nothing but hiring the best servers for our business. Please go and search any major city in any other state and see what they want. In Texas-Bone daddys-Yellow Rose.
Eddie
================================================== ==
I am a proud Latino man brought up by a great latino family!Once again you are judging before speaking!
Eddie
================================================== ==
Are you sending your opinions to the other big bad companies?
Eddie
================================================== ==
They would never respond to you! At least I am>
Eddie
================================================== ==

I am not judging you by any means. Iím simply using the available information to create a hypothesis on why you would need a picture for an application. I admit itís commendable that youíre having a rational conversation with me vs. screaming and yelling and I do appreciate it greatly. Iím sure they wouldnít respond and Iím sure they hire based on physical appearance as factor. You said, however, that they do the same thing that youíre doing, so wouldnít that be admitting to hiring based on appearances? You keep denying this, but then say everyone else does it.

If everyone else jumps off a bridge, would you?

Since this is clearly a topic of frustration for you and my assumptions have upset you, Iíll ask outright:
Why do you need a picture with an application?
Are you hiring based on physical appearance, either alone or as a determining factor?

R.J.

p.s.
Just to give a face to the name to assure you that Iím anything but ugly:
[[insert some girlís picture from MySpace]]


================================================== ==
I have never assumed you were "Butt Ugly". On the contrary, never met you, or would judge you. You are obviously a beautiful, intelligent young women. And I respect your STRONG opinions and values.
Eddie
Me

================================================== ==
Thanks. I never said butt ugly so Iím not sure why youíre quoting that. You did, however, neglect to answer my questions so Iíll copy/paste.

p.s.
Whoís you in the pic? Is that your wife?


================================================== ==
No we(mom) are not hiring on physical appearance or any other physical attribute. That is my sister in law. Have three younger brothers.We are all one year apart. Would you like my finger prints and social# with any other queations? Would be more than happy to help.
Eduardo G. Figallo

================================================== ==
Iím not sure why you would offer finger prints or your social to a stranger on the internet. That seems like a poor decision on your part and makes me want to question your abilities to run a company. If youíre being sarcastic, however, then the joke is unappreciated.

If youíre not hiring on appearance, why do you require women-only and why did you request a picture?


================================================== ==
If you have a job, why are you looking in the classifieds? I was being sarcastic, and I apologize. You can take over my Hiring process if you would like. Because apparentley we do not me your standards as well as every other state. You obviously seemed to have been in a bad relationship to question someone you do not know and waste your time about something as small as we are to effect you. Im tired. Have to visit friend in I.C.U., early tomorrow. If you want to contionue, here is my cell # 412-913-5572, so you can document and paste some more.
Good Night
Eddie
================================================== ==
I am the one wearing the hat.
Eddie

================================================== ==
Iíve already explained why Iím looking in the classifieds. Itís apparent, however, that you didnít pay attention long enough to see that Iím looking for additional money.

Iíve said nothing about you meeting or not meeting any standards. You, however, apparently seem to take exception with my distaste for someone hiring based on gender and appearance. Youíve yet to explain why you only want women and why you want pictures. Instead, youíve consistently used a derogatory tone and made personal attacks on my character. Now youíve gone as far as to say that I must have been in a bad relationship because I think itís wrong of someone to hire cute girls to promote a business. Iím not sure how my personal life would in any way reflect your reprehensible actions, but I donít think it matters at this point.

At any rate, youíve made it clear youíre not going to answer my questions directly and now youíre offering your phone number in an attempt to keep things ďoff the books,Ē as it were. It appears you think Iím a lawyer or seeking litigation of some sort when in all actuality Iím simply disgusted by a ďproud Latino man brought up by a great latino [sic] family!Ē trying to get a couple hot pieces of ass to sell his product.

If your product was worth selling, you wouldnít be looking for a couple hotties to push it onto idiot Yinzers.

Sincerely,
R.J.

p.s.
Iíd be more than happy to take over your hiring process. I will accept minimum wage plus $10 per applicant under the table. If this is acceptable, please delete your post so that I may post my own.

Also, as your friend has nothing to do with us, Iíd like to send my best wishes and hope he/she gets well soon.


================================================== ==
Thank- You for my friend. Email everyone else in the U.S. to remove their ads. You are way to overwhelming for me and my sic latino family. God Bless. Beleive it or not I am a very good man. Take Care. Attack the rest of the list and bar industry.Ede

Re: Emails from an asshole... (me)

you have way too much time on your hands.

Who cares if people hire based on looks? I'm sorry but life isn't fair, everyone isn't going to be attractive. Truth is, attractive people pull in more money.

Re: Emails from an asshole... (me)

i agree, just because all the other companies discriminate does not make it right....... it does make it acceptable though

Don't worry. RJ is indeed an asshole with too much time on his hands. I'll vouch for that.

Did you change the phone # when you posted it? It may not be against forum rules but I have my own personal thing about posting someone's personal # online without their permission (*cough* Frosty *cough).

Re: Emails from an asshole... (me)

I loved when he said "I'm the last person to be racist, I'm latino." LOL.

I mean no hard feelings for what I post on this website. Anything I type/write/post/say on this forum is only that of general debate and discussion. I am not biased toward anyone or anything. I am neutral in everything I do on this website. Only those facts that are presented to me sway my thought process and siding of each discussion topic that I post about.
