Imagine a scenario where you’ve just finished your shift at the power plant and decide to stop at a restaurant for dinner while carrying a barrel of toxic waste. You’re not there to unleash the toxic slime on anyone or even discuss the barrel with a skull decal on it – you just intend to eat a meal with it sitting next to you.
Unfortunately, although you are a licensed waste handler, the barrel makes the room tense: some customers, who may have had bad past experiences with toxic sludge, are afraid of getting splashed with something that might hurt them. skin fall off, and the staff are concerned about the statistics on how exposure to these substances can kill, or at least make people sick. So the host tells you that in fact you cannot come in with this barrel, although you can certainly come and eat without it. Does the restaurant, a private company, discriminate against you?
