“We Love”

Did anyone see the New York Post today?

I was working the EZ Scan station this morning when a man buying multiple newspapers complained he couldn’t scan the Post, because there was no scan bar on it. Okay, that’s weird, but I can put it in by price, so, no problem there. I did think he seemed a little more upset than merited, but… who knew, he might have been having a bad morning.  I also notify my supervisor, figuring this wasn’t an isolated incident.

Actually, it was. I had to go to the rack, and there on the ground was the actual first and last pages of the Post. The front page had “We Love” in eleven different languages. Besides English, I recognized French, Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, Chinese, and Russian, and I think one was Cyrillic. Apparently, from what we pieced together, this guy found it offensive and removed it from the copy he was purchasing. The scan bar he bitched wasn’t there, was … right on the back page, were it belonged.

Honestly, dude? Are you so insecure you can’t handle seeing other languages in print?
