You have no idea what I look like or how I dress.

Again with the inability to read...

@15: You're talking about Don Cherry. DON FUCKING CHERRY.

@16: And as far as reading comprehension, I've no idea where you get the idea I was trying to be clever by using profanity. You might have better interpreted that as an expression of frustration, particularly since in the beginning of the sentence I said "...but I get really frustrated by..."

Reading takes practice. Work on it.

@2: Um, you do realize this is already the law in Washington state, and has been for, I believe, forever or close to it.

Washington state nullifies local restrictions, including on open carry, exactly as quoted in the article.

I'm not saying that's a good thing, but I get really frustrated by the faux-outrage by people advocating regulations on guns when it's obvious they have no fucking clue what they're talking about, and don't even know the laws of the place they fucking live.

@114, so basically what you're saying is that we are on the precipice of secret police units and summary executions at will, and BLOOD RUNNING IN THE STREETS.

Thank you for the clarification.

We could debate all day about tangential connections to long-dead ideologues, but I can see that as of right now you're an ignoramus, so there's little need to go digging much into history to interpret what that might mean.

Uh, I do believe 'isn't racist' pre-dated 'no-homo' since, well, forever.

This clearly male thread needs the opinions of even more males who miss the point entirely.

I cannot fathom how this thread has so many comments and not one person has pointed out that YOGA is the fucking problem here.

Also, @43 ftw.

It's the best store ever, and they have a lot of the less-common Carhartt stuff that you can't find in most of the work-stuff stores, and they have all the zillions or particular sizes.

Apparently it's a trial store, and why they chose Seattle I have no idea, but take advantage of it while it's still here because I'm afraid not many people know about it and it won't last too long.

Best fucking pants on earth.

We reserve the right to refuse service.

The sign's message is clear and simple, but the truth is that a business can't reserve a wholesale right to refuse service.

As places of public accommodation, private businesses are subject to federal and state anti-discrimination laws. These statutes prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, gender and sex. Some also include sexual orientation.

And others, well they outlaw even arbitrary discrimination.

For example, California's Unruh Civil Rights Act prohibits all types of arbitrary discrimination. This includes biases based on physical attributes, political beliefs, and geographical origin.

Courts also tend not to favor arbitrary discrimination. In the past, judges have used consumer protection, unfair business practice, and tort laws to punish such practices.

None of this means that you absolutely cannot refuse to serve a customer. It simply means that you need a legitimate business reason to do so.

You can usually refuse service in the following situations:

When a customer is not properly dressed
When a customer has been, or is being, disruptive
When a customer harasses your employees or other customers
When there are safety concerns
When you know someone can't, or won't, pay
When a customer is intoxicated or high
When you need to protect another customer's privacy

It's still essential to apply these criteria on a bias-neutral basis. Even the most compelling business reason can't overcome obvious discrimination. So remember to use your right to refuse service wisely.
