The Budweiser Story (not a joke)


How Budweiser handled those who laughed at those who died on the 11th of September, 2001...

Thought you might like to know what happened in a little town north of Bakersfield, California. After you finish reading this, please forward this story on to others so that our nation and people around the world will know about those who laughed when they found out about the tragic events in New York, Pennsylvania, and the Pentagon.

On September 11th, a Budweiser employee was making a delivery to a convenience store in a California town named McFarland. He knew of the tragedy that had occurred in New York when he entered the business to find the two Arabs, who owned the business, hooping and hollering to show their approval and support of this treacherous attack.

The Budweiser employee went to his truck, called his boss and told him of the very upsetting event! He didn't feel he could be in that store with those horrible people. His boss asked 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 to call for a delivery again.

Budweiser happens to be the beer of choice for that community. Just letting you know how Kern County handled this situation.

And Now The Rest Of The Story:

It seems that the Bud driver and the Pepsi man are neighbors. Bud called Pepsi and told him. Pepsi called his boss who told him to pull all Pepsi products as well!!! That would include Frito Lay, etc.

Furthermore, word spread and all vendors followed suit! At last report, the store was closed indefinitely.Good old American Passive-Aggressive! BUTT Whoopin'!

Pass this along, America needs to know that we're all working together.

God Bless America!!

After seeing the line about Pepsi and Frito Lay, I knew it had to be a bogus story. I work for Frito Lay and there are so many Ragheads working for them and Pepsico, that you would think that the HQ was in the Middle East. They are also a big supporter of the queers....they have set it up so if your queer you can cover your "domestic partner" with company insurance, but if you live with a woman you are shit outa luck. Ain't diversity grand?

Ceasing delivery would be legal...

Removing purchased products would not...

The joke is idiots passing on drive-by e-mails as the truth without checking it out first.

Your first clue should be: "...pass this on to everyone...."

Too true. The second I see those words in ANY message I receive (e-mail or discussion forum) I automatically discard whatever it says.
