This is TRUE!

How Budweiser handled those who laughed at those
who died on the 11th of September,

Thought you might like to know what happened
in a little town north of Bakersfield , California

After you finish reading this,
please forward this story on to others
so that our nation and people around the world will know about those who laughed
when they found out about the tragic events
in New York , Pennsylvania , and the Pentagon.

On September 11th,
A Budweiser employee was making a delivery
to a convenience store in a California town
named McFarland.

He knew of the tragedy that had occurred
in New York when he entered the business
to find the two Arabs, who owned the business, whooping and hollering to show their approval and support of this treacherous attack.

The Budweiser employee went to his truck,
called his boss and told him
of the very upsetting event!

He didn't feel he could be in that store with those
horrible people. His boss asked him,
'Do you think you could go in there long enough
to pull every Budweiser product and item
our beverage company sells there?

We'll never deliver to them again.'
The employee walked in,
proceeded to pull every single product his
beverage company provided and left
with an incredible grin on his face.

He told them never to bother to call for
a delivery again.

Budweiser happens to be the beer of choice
for that community.

Just letting you know how Kern County
handled this situation. And Now

The Rest Of The Story:
It seems that the Bud driver and the Pepsi man
are neighbors. Bud called Pepsi and told him.

Pepsi called his boss who told him to
pull all Pepsi products as well!!!
That would include Frito Lay, etc.

Furthermore, word spread and
all vendors followed suit! At last report,
the store was closed indefinitely.

Good old American
Passive-Aggressive A$$ Whoopin!

Pass this along, America needs to know
that we're all working together!

If you can read this.
Thank a teacher...

If you are reading it in English....

This story has been up on various website for the last several years. It has been proved false several times and lots of variations have been posted.

An 18 October 2001 version of the standard e-mail changed the beer company from Budweiser to Beck.
A 30 October 2001 version opened with the canonical "Budweiser" story but continued on into a new second part about the Bud driver's calling "his Pepsi friend" and that driver's removing all Pepsi and Frito Lay products from that store as well.
Anheuser-Busch produced the following response: Please know that we have investigated the matter and have found there is no truth to this story. We've checked extensively on this story in a number of different locations, with wholesalers and retail accounts and there is no report of a customer reacting in such a manner. Therefore, no product has been pulled from any retail account.

Like all Americans, we at Anheuser-Busch along with our wholesalers were shocked and saddened by the tragic and violent terrorist attack on our country. We keep the victims and survivors in our thoughts.

Is this a true story or did you just read something on the web that you believe is true?

I'm asking because I found a web page that is very similar to your post.

what's with all the friggin spaces in your story? It's quite annoying and excessive.

Also, my father works at Anheuser Busch/Budweiser here in Mobile and I've heard it from his own mouth that this story is absolutely false.

Ice1300 hit it spot on.

How do you know it DIDN'T happen by some on the lower management side of the corporation and then, when asked the official story was "No, it didn't happen", to save losing business?
I think that sounds like a good story!

Any community where Budweiser is the beer of choice should probably keep their mouths shut and not embarrass themselves any further.

1) Spacing a bit better now.

2) Think people, this was posted in "BTS" not ATS (A clue?):shk:
3) I said at the bottom of the post,' (This was sent to me in an E-Mail, I have no source)

I don't know if it is true or not-hence the BTS post.

Urban Legend or American Nationalism?

Frankly, I find either just as possible as the other.
