Cracker Barrel

Employees Given Script

To Explain Phil Boycott

Cracker Barrel
took such a ridiculous position by boycotting Duck Commander products with Phil Robertson's punim on it ... they had to give their employees a script to deal with pissed-off customers.

TMZ obtained a copy of a script Cracker Barrel created so its employees could justify the boycott.  And this is funny ... the script is actually a modified version of how employees generally deal with unhappy shoppers.  Seems to be a problem at Cracker Barrel.

The script was 86'd 24 hours after it was written ... when Cracker Barrel reversed its position because it realized it stood to lose customers and therefore lots of loot.

Apparently the company needs a new script, because angry customers are still calling about its position on Phil.

How's this for a script.

    -- Sorry ... we really f***ed this one up.  But hey, we saw which way the wind was blowing so now we support Phil.  And try our cheese eggs.  They're terrific!

Phil did not command any one that they should not have unnatural sex with whomever they want too....he simply stated that he believes it is a sin

They keep trying to program people like robots. I hate this scripted stuff. If they were really down home and country, they would be more natural. They want to tell Phil what to say, their employees what to say, and even how to say it. I find that so annoying

When people recite these scripts to you, you feel like you are listening to a computer voice reading something on the phone. I can't imagine the average chain restaurant worker being able to recite this whole thing with any sincerity.

I especially hate when people automatically say, I know how you feel. They probably could really not care less. Cracker Barrel is Crock of Bull.

That sure is an ugly group of men. They look like they are right out of a psych ward or a homeless shelter. Why would any man want to look like that?

And of course now the LBGT groups will boycott Cracker Barrel. Maybe it's only the rednecks that shop there in the first place?

This just shows them as the callous and greedy b@$t@rd$ that they really are. They don't care about people, just their money.

Nothing goes together like the these Duck people and canned, processed Cheese. If they only knew that the Robertsons were a complete creation of the wardrobe, hair and make-up departments of the production company. Before they sold their souls to A&E they were bread less and wearing kakis /polo shirts on the golf course. It's all for TV.
