'Ticket Inspector Reinstated To Job after Spitting At Customer'.
What kind of person, I asked myself, would a) plant a gob between a customer's eyes, and b) still get reinstated to their job with all back monies paid? Bet you're scratching your head right now, are you not? The Irish Employment Appeals Tribunal found Nigerian Aisha Olukoya to have been an exemplary employee. Prior to the spitting incident. Which is a bit like writing the story of the Titanic without mentioning the incident with the iceberg.
The explanation? You guessed it. The customer (according to the enricher) subjected her to 'racial abuse'. That changes everything. You were perfectly within your rights in that case to spray the customer with (possibly STD-laden) phlegm. Here's your €35,000 ($48,000) per annum job back, plus back pay while you were out.
