Here is a good one for you. I recently purchased several interior light fixtures from Menards. When I inquired about the 10% discount offered to military members I was told by the Service Manager that " It was no longer Menard's policy to offer a discount to members of the Armed Forces because it was seen as (unfair) discriminitory toward the civilian sector." I can't help but feel like this was a total dis. It's true that soldiers volunteer to serve our our country, its citizens and the priniciples of democracy (and to some extend capitalism).
I would say 10% is not too much to ask for those who have spend many a night in tents with sand fleas and mortar fire, low pay and high risk. Months away from their families and country;sacrifce of life and limb(s). So tell me who is really being discriminated against.
Not whinning just pissed.
