Rant – Tasteless Business Practices for Dockside Pub

I’m sorry but WTH is this bar thinking?! Capitalizing on a tragedy by making a shot. Is any of that $4 going to help victims of the Paris attacks in any way? Did the bar shut down their karaoke and have a moment of silence everytime someone slammed one down their gullet?

At the very least, if they insisted on going forward with this tactless, classless act, perhaps they should have made the shot on the house.

  1. It has nothing to do with “everyone being offended by everything”… It has EVERYTHING to do with people only really caring about “the appearance of supporting things”…..

    Too many are “supporting” in all the wrong ways. And too many letting disrespectful things like this “slide as ok”.

    • Tiffany why not go talk to the owners of the bar before you post something negative about a business ,

      I still fail to see how it’s disrespectful. Especially considering you have no idea where that money is going. Seems to me like you’re looking to start some drama.

    • How sad. Stating my opinion has thrown you all for such a tizzy its sad. Just because you do not agree with what I am saying DOES NOT give you the right to bully me which is EXACTLY what you are doing. You do not know me, nor do you know what information I have? Do not assume to know anything just because I commented on this post.

      An Imbalance of Power: Kids who bully use their power—such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity—to control or harm others. Power imbalances can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people.
      Repetition: Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once.
      Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.

    • Mob mentality is bullying?

      One person speaks their mind and a bunch of others have to try to show them how wrong they are? That is bullying.

      You do not like my opinion? Thats fine but do not try to “educate or demean” and I will respect the rebuttle.

    • How can you support in the wrong way??? If someone is buying a shot to raise in support of France thats not your call to say its ‘wrong’, people show support in different ways. The business may be making money off of it but they are also bringing attention to a tragedy. I’ll say it again, its not your call to say somebody/establishment is ‘supporting in the wrong way’.

      Please see above stated definition for clarification. — you are not being bullied. You are being disagreed with.

    • Talking down and trying to educate is a form of bullying. If you want to have an opposing conversation… HAVE IT. But the minute you start attacking someone and taunting them IT BECOMES BULLYING.

      Again if you want to NOT TALK DOWN to me I can respect a rebuttle. Until that time you are just bullying.

      Maybe they were anti bullying because your post was totally bullying them first. (I hope you are smart enough to catch my sarcasm. Because they are just stating their opinions to you like you felt the need to state to us. There was no “mob” mentality here just multiple people that don’t have the same opinion. Put your big girl panties on and deal with it. If you can’t handle people with a difference of opinion. Don’t post on these things.)

    • Samara White Samara White says:

      And for the record in one of your other posts you called people with the France flag on their profiles bandwagon jumpers. I thought you said in your post someone screen shot that you would never say stuff like that to people because they have a difference of opinion. You don’t know people you don’t know why they put it there. Maybe they have family that were in France. Maybe they were from France.

    • Amber Morin Amber Morin says:

      Tiffany Lazaruk you called people ” fucking assholes” thats ok? you are upset people dont agree with you, so you prceed to name call…. this is not the playground, nor is this elementry school. No one is trying to “educate you or demean you”, as you seem to think. We, for the most part, disagree with your opinion about a shot being offered at a local bar. You are getting offended because no supports your rant, and by all means, no one has to. You want, IMO, to feel justified and supported. You werent expecting people, and you should have, to disagree with your train of thoughts. It is what it is, and i strongly feel you need to agree to disagree, and move forward. No one person here has bullied you, made you a target, or demeaned you that I have seen. No one has used fowl language or profanity towards you, that I have seen. What I DO see, is that you used both profanity, and fowl language to get a point accross to someone who would take notice — your FB page — which go ahead and post, it doesnt relfect on the actual topic of the original post. so moving forward, quite playing the ” i am a victim of bullying” card, and get over the idea that not everyone needs to agree or support your beliefs.

    And how is this any different than making one’s facebook picture the same colors? You’re making something out of nothing. A bar can’t give alcohol away for free.

  5. Kari Hayward Kari Hayward says:

    OMG are u serious!! There establishments who for every coffee sold donate money, or ones for every beer sold donate money to someone suffering an illness. Jesus they made a shot in support and maybe it was you who was looking for a free hand out over this tragedy! I’d buy a shot for support. Gawd get a grip!

  6. Amber Morin Amber Morin says:

    i dont think that its tasteless. in many cultures and foreign countries, raising a shot of liquor is a sign of respect, and support. it doesnt matter of the money is going to support the victims of France, for some, its enough to know people care and are wishing you well, Its not always about the money.

    [0]
    • And do you think the “people of France” know a bar is charging $4 a shot? Lol… No… It is for a business to make money off of an obvious tragedy.

      [0]
    • Amber Morin Amber Morin says:

      It’s ridiculous, that this sort of tribute angers you. Time to get a new hobby, rather than creating controversy about something so ridiculous as a $4 shot of liquor.

  7. Offensive??? Think of this as tribute to the people of France. Everybody is offended by everything today.

  8. Dylan Jones Dylan Jones says:

    I’m curious about wether or not this person actually looked into this to find out actual details or if they just took a screenshot of the fb post and decided they needed to complain and post it on this site to feel some kind of gratification in their life.

    • Jim Trawick Jim Trawick says:

      Thanks! I was actually being quite serious. I think you need to seek the help of a mental health professional, considering that you seem to get overly offended by the most simple of things.

    • Stating my opinion is a mental health issue? Lmfao! Wow… Nothing like showing the public how you can bully and degrade someone for speaking their well spoken opinion. How sad.

      [0]
    • Jim Trawick Jim Trawick says:

      Actually, yes, you are freaking out over something so simple and so trivial. The issue is you going bombastic over this whole thing. The issue is how quickly you can launch in to some kind of tirade. The issue is how quickly you can go from the aggressor to someone attempting to play the victim card. No one is bullying you and no one is degrading you. You making those comments is yet an additional reason for you to consult with a mental health professional. As far as you being well spoken, we will agree to disagree.

      [0]
    • In pretty sure she doesn’t need to see a mental health professional. Give her some slack. I don’t necessarily agree with her original post, but I’m pretty sure I understand why she feels ganged up on. Just leave her be.

  15. 1/3 ounce grenadine
    1/3 ounce peach schnapps
    1/3 ounce blue curaçaco

  19. Lisa Whelan Lisa Whelan says:

    I don’t think it’s cool when anyone uses a tragedy as a tool for promotion or profit. Not saying I’m offended by it, but i also don’t think the shot displays any respect for the Paris tragedy what so ever.

  21. I’m a little confused… Someone has posted it onto the pub’s Facebook. It doesn’t look like the Dockside is endorsing it, it looks like someone has bought the shot and posted the picture onto their page (which by the way, I can’t seem to find the post on their page).
    If you’re offended, why call out a whole business instead of the person who posted it? Why is their name blanked out?

    Time for a chill pill or a nap. everyone is entitled to their opinion. If you don’t want people to oppose yours don’t post it on a public forum.

  24. OMG more bitchin and moaning! So big deal, they made a shot. I’m sure after 9/11 that city made a massive chunk of change just from the influx of tourists coming to pay respects. Can’t we just find something nice to focus on for a change? How about you appreciate every morning that you wake up, it means you are still alive! Did you get to eat today? If so, look at that, something to be appreciative about.

  25. I hope the power companies across the globe that lit up buildings and bridges with lights showing support for France donated all that money as well. Otherwise it was a tactless, classless act.

    I guess you didn’t bother to find out that ALL the money raised was donated to the victims. Oh and your comment “trying to educate is a form of bullying” shows what’s wrong with the world. So does that mean you are bullying the owner of this pub? You are a bully! Now go bully someone who isn’t trying to help fellow humans who have just been through something awful.
