Got this on in an E-mail. Any truth or just Urban Legend fodder??? Budweiser TRUE STORY.....!!!! >How Budweiser handles those who laughed at those who died on 11 Sept 2001 > >Thought you'd like to know what happened in a town north of Bakersfield >California. After you finish reading this, please forward this story on >to others so that our nation and around the world will know about those >who laughed when they found out about the tragic events in New York, PA >and the Pentagon. > > September 11th, a Budweiser employee was making a delivery to a > convenience store in a town called McFarland. He knew of the tragedy > that had occurred in New York, but was continuing his shift to stores and > seeing owners weeping and sad talking about what was happening in New > York. He entered the 7-11 to find the two Arab owners whooping and > hollering, clapping and doing high-fives and really cheering it up. It > was obvious they were elated with what had happened earlier. The Budweiser employee went to his truck called his boss and told him of the event. He said he was stunned and had returned to the truck to call and tell someone about the horrible people inside. His boss told him, "Do you think you could go in there long enough to pull every Budweiser product and item our beverage company sells there? We'll never deliver to them again." The employee walked in, proceeded to pull every single product his beverage company provided and left with an incredible grin on his face. He told them never to bother and call for a delivery again.Then he added 'call Bin Laden for your beer from now on!' Budweiser happens to be the beer of choice for that community. Just letting you all know how Kern County handles this situation! Pass this along. America needs to know that we're all working together. >Well, I need to add to this. My father in Nevada sent this to me. Fact >is, I live not too far from McFarland here in Central California, and I >heard about this at work the day after it happened. Seems a lot of people >from work frequented the store in question. But it didn't end there. As >Paul Harvey might say, here's the rest of the story... > >Seems the Budweiser driver had friends...in particular, the Pepsi route >driver. The Bud driver called his Pepsi friend from his cell phone while >he was still at the store and told him what happened. Seems the Pepsi >driver called his boss, and received the identical orders the Bud driver >did. So Pepsi went in and took out everything in the store under their >corporate brand. And if you know Pepsico (Pepsi, Frito Lay, etc.), that's >damn near EVERYTHING. Last I heard, that store has no product, no >customers (word spreads fast in these small towns, y'know) and no >hope. And I say good riddance to bad rubbish. I hope they enjoyed their >cheers...it's the last they'll be doing in THIS country. >Samdog

I posted this a month or two ago asking the same question. Unfortunately it turned out to be an urban legend. I don't have the link to the web-site that explains it though. Still, it's a good story.

Should have been titled, "This Bud AIN'T for you!"

It's true! Also, the store was firebombed and the owners were shot to death and hung from the lamp post in front of the store! Here's the link: [url]http://www.snopes2.com/rumors/bud.htm[/url]

[i]After you finish reading this, please forward this story on to others so that our nation and around the world will know about those who laughed when they found out about the tragic events in New York, PA and the Pentagon.[/i] Usually any internet / email story that promotes forwarding to others is BS.

NOpe its a lie. From a line in the link: "Thank you for taking the time to e-mail Anheuser-Busch. Please know that we have investigated the matter and have found there is no truth to this story."

[size=6][b]That story is fake![/b][/size=6] If the convience store in question is not a major chain, beer is sold as cash only, not credit. Once its paid for, it belongs to the store that bought it. Taking it off the shelf would be theft and the store manager/owner/employee has every right to stop the person from stealing the product. PepsiCo works on the same principle, once you paid for it, they do not give a damm about the product. They can however pull their displays and trade fixtures from the store and refuse to sell to them.

Hey, everybody! Don't be so depressed to hear that the story isn't true. That means (at least in this case) the event DIDN'T HAPPEN. It means that people who (presumably) came here from another country DIDN'T laugh and dance over our dead. It means that there are people who came here for the same reason that my grandparents came here, and maybe they know more than most of us what it means to be Americans.
