Save Mart is unpatriotic.

My son is finally home in Turlock. It's been an emotional day for me. JD didn't want a party. He didn't want the brass band I would have hired, or the parade I would have created, or the media taking his picture. I would have done pretty much anything to welcome him home, but all he wanted was to come home and spend some quiet time with family and friends. He doesn't think of himself as a hero, and I think it makes him feel uncomfortable. Probably the same way I felt yesterday when Sheriff Jon Lopey (My hero from the reality TV series "Weed Country") called me a hero. Yikes.

So after a few hours of non stop talk JD and his wife left to go munch out at Wing Stop. I did get him to come to a bbq tomorrow, and no JD bbq would be complete without a big "Welcome Home JD" cake. Of course I needed to order it and decided on Save Mart, in Turlock. $23.99 for a 1/4 sheet cake, and it would be enough for JD to have seconds. It was a done deal...until the woman with the accent working the bakery counter told me in no uncertain terms that Save Mart doesn't do military cakes. I stood there rather stunned for several seconds, but I decided to move past her rude remarks, and asked for a cake with an American flag..."We don't do American flags either, how do you expect us to get all 50 stars on the cake, of course we can't".

This is the United States of America, my son just got home from a 9 month tour in Afghanistan with horrible stories to tell, and a Save mart employee is telling me she wont do a military cake or even an American flag.

I left the counter to compose myself and then asked to speak to the Manager. I explained the situation to Steve, and his response was almost as stunning. "We don't do cakes like that," he said. "But in this case I will make an exception as my personal present to your son for his military service"...."Just come in tomorrow and pay $23.99 and it will ready", he said.

Ok so the manager of Save Mart considers me buying a welcome home cake for my son, with an American flag on it...his gift to my son. Isn't that amazing?

How unpatriotic can one grocery store be. Save Mart should be ashamed of themselves for not adding a military type template to their long list of cartoon characters, super hero's, and flowers. They are literally dissing our soldiers.

JEERS to Save Mart!

..." the woman with the accent "... My,my...how racist of you and how telling. So she speaks with an accent, what has that got to do with store policy that as an employee she is required to follow? Yes, by all means let's demonize a hard working immigrant trying to provide for her family. Your hate knows no bounds. How sad.

Tommymarin...if I said the sky was blue you would argue that it's purple. Just because you don't like my stance on marijuana, now I'm a racist? Bink off screen name.

Update:

I spoke with the manager of Save Mart today. He will have his top cake designer create a basic military themed cake template, and it will be available for sale to anyone who needs or wants one.

I don't want any military parent to have to go through what I did. We have enough to worry about. Ordering a cake to welcome home our children should be simple and easy.

To Save Mart's Geer rd Manager...Greg...Thank you, and I accept your apology.

Hoo ya.

Your stance on cannabis makes you increasingly irrelevant, your emphasizing the employee's accent makes you racist.

Ah, Linda. Not only do you toot your own proverbial horn (after all, Your Humbleness was called a hero, making you feel uncomfortable, yet not uncomfortable enough to boast about it in this post for all to read), you make a very non-sequitur claim when you say that because SaveMart does not have a certain kind of template, it is "unpatriotic." It is unfortunate that many people in our country follow this type of "logic." Basically, you're killing your argument by slandering a company in such an illogical way.

Now, let's start with your not-so-subtle racism, as Tommy pointed out. The woman you spoke with had an accent....And....? I did not quite follow your moot point, but had to laugh at your embarrassing racism. Yes, you are a racist, as you probably know. You're making a dangerous connection between a linguistic trait and hating a whole country.

You try to appear demure, Ms. Taylor, but you are a backwater, blatant racist. Just come out with it already. All your anger was and is caused not by the cake order, but by the immigrant employee who irked you.

Moreover, I'll assume you're American-born and speak just one language - English. I'm making this assumption because for someone with your privilege, your grammar and syntax is appalling. I'm cringing at your incorrect usage of punctuation, incoherent logic, and your third grade-level sentence structure. How was this allowed through the filters? Anyway, I'm sure your accent isn't thick or off or anything weird, so you have that going for you.

I'll end by saying this: it's never a good thing to feel so entitled. Even if your son allowed you to call "the media" and notify them of his return, they would not necessarily make a quick stop to your house and stage an interview. There are almost 2 million men and women who are on active duty in all branches of the U.S. military. Get over yourself.

TommyMarin, do I sense some hostility? By the way...Tommy Chong and Cheech Marin are two separate people dude.

TommyMarin commented on Friday, Mar 22, 2013 at 03:02 AM

I certainly detect more than just an hint of hostility. Every racist I've ever met got hostile when they were been exposed. MOO

The sky is blue...deal with it.

TommyMarin commented on Saturday, Mar 23, 2013 at 19:47 PM

If it waddles like a racist and squawks like a racist...it's a racist...MOO

What amazes me is how antything like the cut and paste artist of this piece
of propaganda can treat it's own body like a toxic waste dump
and still feel it should be able to decree how others treat
their own bodies. Check out the video the following link takes
you to too see what I mean. It obviously has no respect for
itself yet insists on trying to impose its will on humanity.
It appears at the 19 sec mark and again at the 2:05 mark.Can
you spell H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-E? obviously it can't,
but I'd be willing to bet it can spell S-U-P-E-R S-I-Z-E M-E!
