    I was listening to XM radio and the DJ mentioned this so I had to look it up lol.

    Seriously, this hazing crap is out of control. I more bothered by what groups are now doing this, girls field hockey, high school sports teams, boys pretending to be grown ups at college and now cooks. Seriously, enough already.

    Damn, that is beyond wrong; but unfortunately not uncommon. :frown1: I recall hearing of a few instances on Long Island where high school boys were brought up on charges for beating and sodomoizing new players to the football and baseball teams. :yuck:

    Geez. Cheesecake factory, of all places. I'm a frat guy, and nothing even close to this ever happened.

    EDIT: Pledging was just a lot of cleaning and getting kicked out in the cold every once in awhile.

    This is a horrible issue, but I have a question with the fact that it took so long to report it. Why wait until the 20th attack? You have to report something like this the first time.

    Yeah, I wondered about that as well. Seems to me that maybe after the 5th occurrence a call or e-mail to corporate would have been made.

    While these attacks were definetly heinous I wonder how much justice the victim(s) can expect since they waited so long. A good lawyer can twist that to make it seem like he was enjoying the alleged abuse the first 19 times.:frown1:

    The sad thing is that one of those cooks who hazed that guy could come on LPSG, make a thread about it, and receive glorification and praise for that "totally hawt story."

    Um..if the story was written as the facts are presented I tend to doubt that.

    You must not have read any of the "I sexually abused my friend/neighbor/cousin/classmate while they were sleep" threads.

    EDIT: This REALLY pissed me off

    WTF? A manager saw and THREATENED to fire? I think the manager should be fired for failing to act on SEXUAL ABUSE. It's not like their offense was punching in 2 minutes late, they basically gang-raped a co-worker.

    Who knew fast food was so violent? I shudder to think what they do at Mrs. Fields!

    You know, not everyone can be the victim in that place... who's doing the humping? Is it something that when you reach a certain level of status in the kitchen you get to do the humping? or is it that you are exempt from receiving the hazing when you reach a level of management and it's the dishwashers doing it... the article wasn't clear.

    Anyone and everyone that participated in the incidents should have been fired on the spot the first time it happened or was reported. All it takes is one boot action of those involved to reduce the chance of it happening again. Now it's national news. Idiot manager that didn't fire the first offenders.

    I'll never eat at the Chandler store again. Makes me wonder if they have the same issue at the Scottsdale store? or at other Cheesecake Factory restaurants.

    As soon as I re-open my Netflix account I have to add that to my queue, I wanted to see it for the longest time but couldn't find it anywhere.

    It's pretty funny, however my dining out dropped off significantly after watching it.

    Is this possibly a way spanish guys mess with each other, I once witnessed a straight dude(PR) reaching to grab my friends shits (also PR) who I knew was straight. I often wondered if his negitive reaction had anything to do with me being there. The same strange behaviour as grabbing your own shit openly while speaking to a friend. Damn that shit may seem wierd but its hot too.
