Slog Tipper Tim wants us all to know that there is an independent bookstore in Connecticut that is douchier than any bookselling chain:
Atticus Book Store and Cafe, located in New Haven, Connecticut, has caused a controversy over a recent policy decision to require all Hispanic employees to only speak English within a customer’s earshot.
The staff is allowed to speak Spanish, but only in restricted areas.
A document from the bookstore states:Spanish is allowed in the prep area, the dishwasher area and the lower level. Let’s make our customers feel welcome and comfortable.
Oh, the irony of Atticus Book Store's owner being intolerant.
