The WTH Moment of The Day: Employee gets fired for wearing an NFL tie for opposing team...

Browsing through the net, I came upon this interesting story.This made no sense to me. Granted, it does seem
a little weird to wear a Packers tie to your workplace in Chicago, especially where they just beat your city's team in the NFC title game. But even though the car dealership may have a strong relationship with the Bears, it should not have warranted such a strong response from management to have to fire him. Management could have simply handled the matter better; a simple asking him to "take off your tie please" would have sufficed. Now obviously, the employee didn't think management was serious in the matter, not over a tie,  but that obviously wasn't the case. Nevertheless, it seems the two side have moved on, preferably Mr. Stone, as he has appears to be in talks with another dealership to land another salesman position's good. Hopefully, he won't have to endure this kind of disrespect from any future management for a small dress code issue that did not have to come to its distasteful conclusion.
