Did A Chick-Fil-A Manager Ban 'Bae,' 'On Fleek' & Other Teen Slang From His Restaurant?


UPDATE: The restaurant has responded to this story via their Twitter account. According to corporate, these employees are more than welcome to keep calling each other bae after all. But did Eric the manager really post this list? We may never know. But they did use the story as a chance to get in a nice dig at hamburgers while they were at it:

The text to our original story is included below.

If you work at a Chick-fil-A run by "Eric the manager," just know this: He might be tired of hearing your slang.

That’s means no more “Bae" or “Bruh” or “Fam” and definitely not the latest phrase to invade all social media, “on fleek.”

A Reddit user, who claims to be a member of Eric's trusted staff, posted the full list of allegedly banned words and phrases on the site.

“I work at Chick-fil-a and Eric, our manager, is tired of our sh-t,” the user wrote.


The post has already gone viral, so it won’t be long before Eric the manager, if he exists, issues a new, more prohibitive mandate for his teenaged employees.

To all of the Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Vine-using teens under this "Eric the manager," we say this: Hold it dine.
