G word not to be used
Unfortunately we have had to sack a member of staff today for calling a company director a "Ginger". He pleaded that the use of the G word was in context and it was a "Street" term, used as a show of camaraderie, but the board took a very different approach. A spokesman said "In no way should this term be used, in whatever context. The recipient of this particularly nasty case of Gingerism is said to be deeply upset. Naivety is no excuse, and although the defendant claimed "being blond" as a mitigating circumstance, we had to show him the door."
