    Default Piercing discrimation allowed?

    The 'wrong type of people': Bride and groom 'humiliated' after wedding email blunder - Telegraph

    "they were discriminated against due to Mr Carty’s age and appearance, including his pierced eyebrow and two tiny earrings."

    Should they be given £1800 each for piercing discrimination?

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    "A representative of the hotel has now apologised for the email error, promising the member of staff who sent it would be “dealt with internally”."

    So the hotel's wedding planner is not only a snooty cow and a bigot, she also can't even send an email without forwarding it to half the world?

    The hotel deserves to be taken for every penny the couple can get

    I got told at an interview once for DWP that I would have to take my eyebrow piercing out.

    At the end of the interview, got offered the gig and knocked it back. The bloody woman doing the interview said "Is it because of what I said about your eyebrow ?" Erm, no love, it was the rate actually !! Should maybe have sued

    They were so humiliated that they felt bound to make themselves feel even more humiliated by publicising their humiliation to the readers of the Telegraph.

    Definitely, and tattoos. Though reading the story there is no mention of piercings except that the old looking woman (27 lol) thinks that might be a reason why.

    Personally Id take this as a message from above, its not meant to be love. Unless he's loaded and has terminal cancer of course.

    I used to know this computer science professor who would offer a ciggy to anyone he interviewed and if they accepted would be not given the job.

    As an aside he is dead now, jewish, got out Germany on a train load of kids in the late 30s ( only enough room for children ones ) and his parents were killed in the camps. Brutal.
