    Too bad this didn't happen recently. He could've worn it upside down and said he was a Herman Cain supporter. :icon_cool

    Hate to say it, but I think the guy has a case. He took the suspension and then they fired him anyway.

    He could have fixed it on day 665 by slipping and injuring his back.

    I bet he was annoying as fuck the day he had to wear the "333" sticker.

    What kind of workplace forces employees to wear stickers? I thought they just used that "This work place has been accident free for ___ days" sign?

    This whole thing is stupid. Any god that's going to condemn you for wearing a safety sticker isn't worth worshiping. And why is it so important that he wears the damn thing anyway? His boss couldn't have just said "Oh okay, I don't understand what the big deal is but you don't have to wear it today."? And why didn't he just take a sick day or something? He obviously knew what day it was, was he trying to force the factory into an awkward situation?

    All that being said, he'll probably win the case.

    The man is being persecuted for his irrational beliefs. Not a good firing job.

    Fuck the company in this case. He requested to not wear a stupid sticker for a single day... they should have just allowed him that one thing without a suspension or any bullshit... now it's going to cost them tens of thousands in legal fees.

    Is it really a good use of company resources to print daily stickers?

    according to a new translation the real number of the beast might be 616 not 666 so the dope already wore the sticker and is doomed. Fuck religion and the weak minded rubes that it sucks in.

    What if he tried to do that, but instead ended up killing a coworker? So instead of wearing the sticker and maybe offending God, he becomes a murderer thus booking his place in hell.

    What fucking stupid company prints out stickers every day and makes their employees wear them? This guy (and anyone who actually believes in 666) is a retard too. Does this moron think EVERY time the number 666 appears, that it is the mark of the beast? Is the $6.66 steak at the butcher's counter also the mark of the beast? For a "devout Christian", he sure doesn't seem to understand the underlying point of receiving the mark is not that it will make the boss at one plastic company in Georgia happy, it is to show to all of the earth that you have accepted satan as your master.

    I've had people add extra stuff onto their orders at the end of their purchase just so the amount didn't end in 6.66. Never takes much. A pack of gum or what have you. I don't care either way. I'm glad to sell you things to solely alleviate your paranoia.

    Sometimes you forget how incredibly stupid the human race is, in general. Thanks for reminding me. I am sure that Jesus wouldn't want you to have a total at the supermarket that equals 6.66, because clearly if you pay it you have accepted satan as your master and are now forced to do his bidding.

    I don't think its just an ultra religious thing. We got a new car and the number was 666. My bosses actually called up and got the numbers changed. I see it as more of a bad luck thing than religious. Like the number 13 being bad luck. Granted its being used in a religious defense here but couldn't the guy not wear a number for one day without it being a big deal.

    a fear of a number is more proof of how stupid of a species we are as a whole.

    Fun fact: In Japan, they skip several numbers when numbering apartments, hotel rooms, addresses and even floors in high rises, because one of the readings of the number sounds like "impolite" words (shit, whore, or something like that).

    We do the same thing in the states because of triskaidekaphobia. A lot of hotels omit the 13th floor in their buildings.

    I think that when they do that, the 13th floor should be an open space between 12 and 14, with just exposed girders and the stairwells and elevator shaft passing through.

    From what I've heard, lots of hotels use the 13th floor to house HVAC infrastructure.

    That sounds like it might be a bit unlucky for a lot of people.

    i have a feeling there is a lot more to this than a sticker, there always is. want to bet this asshole takes off every "holy" day he can and hands out religious shit at lunch and pisses and moans about everything that people do. when i was working at the photo lab we hired a woman that pulled that shit all the time, she swore she was a devout catholic and was constantly taking off for "holy" days and would protest out side planned parent hood ect... she also filed so many complaints with our upper management about the rest of the employees that they finally fired her, and NO ONE got fired from that place... except her, there reason was because when she didn't get off for her "holy" days she would call in sick and then leave us short handed, what was great was that because she was there less than 90days they didn't even need a reason we found out later that the actual reason was because she sicked the unions on our home office because we hired a non union contractor to oversee the remodeling of our store, and she went after the district manager for smoking in the store, even though at the time it was allowed (the 80's were great)
