Firehouse Subs employee writes racial slur on customer’s receipt, gets fired

Approved ~~ MJM

An employee with Firehouse Subs in South Carolina has been fired for writing a racial slur on a customer’s receipt in place of his name.

Zhe Zhao, who was visiting a friend in Columbia last week, had placed an order for a large steak sub from a Firehouse Subs restaurant on Nov. 7 — via DoorDash — but later saw on the receipt that he was identified by an offensive slur.

“This cashier said ‘Ching Chong’ in my receipt. And I do not know this person,” Zhao wrote in a Facebook post, which also contained a photograph of the receipt. “As [an] international student, this is a very sad experience in United States. And I don’t understand why people have this problem in USA?”
