This is insane.
A front desk supervisor at a Florida hotel was fired recently when he refused management’s request to remove the American flag pin he was wearing.

Sean May, 26, an employee at Casa Monica Hotel in St. Augustine, Fla., has been wearing an American flag pin to work every day for the last two years. Last week, he was told to remove the pin because it violates company policy.

May said Casa Monica recently had a change in command at the corporate level and is trying to revamp its image.

A spokesperson for the hotel released this statement: "Casa Monica has always had the personal appearance guidelines, and they are currently being enforced."

"The Casa Monica Hotel located in St. Augustine, Florida, is an American-based, homegrown historic hotel," the email reads. "The property reflects its pride in America and great patriotism by flying the Stars and Stripes high over the hotel. The American flag greets every guest and employee with its symbolism of our belief in this great country."

You misunderstand...

The American pride and great patriotism is so profound at Casa Monica Hotel, that they don't want some whimpy symbol like a flag pin. They expect you to have the American Flag tattooed on your right arm and branded on your left arm. Duh.



What a sad sad display of not only pettiness, but a bad decision just based solely off the press coverage they will get on this story. You would think a Hotel would have more important things to worry about :o
