Truth Squad in Action
The following letter is from Amelia:
"A few weeks ago I went to lunch at one of my favorite fast food joints (A&W) in close proximity to my work. Good price, good food, wonderful people. That day I noticed beside the door a new sign that read "No weapons on premises" with a line through a picture of both a gun and a knife. I took about three steps in the door and said to myself "Nah, I can't." And walked out.

I decided to write an email. I remember hearing you tell about some instances where signs were put up without management/owners being aware of it, and after learning of it the signs being taken down so I figured it couldn't hurt. They would never notice my missing business if I just stopped going so I wanted to tell them why I couldn't go back.

I started my letter with everything I liked about the place in detail. The food, the staff, the ice cream flavor rotation, the price, the location being right across the parking lot from my store. I then went on to say how I was so disappointed that they would put a sign up saying that I was no longer welcome there. It wasn't that my gun and knife were not welcome, but that I wasn't. I politely covered the reasons why I felt the need to carry and why I felt the need to avoid places that would prevent me from doing so. If I didn't like the place so much I wouldn't have bothered.

Being a national chain I figured my letter would either be ignored or I'd be told off in a professional manner.
A few weeks went by and I guessed it was the former, but I finally got a response from local management.
He told me that this was an HR decision that he was required to help enforce. He told me that he agreed with me and also had his concealed weapons permit and understood why I was choosing not to come back. He told me that he would forward my message to the corporate office and let me know if anything changed.

The very next day, I received this message:
Good news! Apparently there were some important people at our office that were not aware that these signs were posted. The signs have been removed. We have no policy against patrons carrying weapons legally. Thank you for reaching out to us!"

How awesome is that? Just one little email from a fan changed something big. Those signs really bother me and I do my very best to not shop at locations where they are posted. Not doing so hasn't changed a thing. It hasn't affected my life a bit and it hasn't affected their business. They don't know me. They don't know why I shop or don't. My pitiful $7 isn't going to make or break them. Communication is the only way to make a difference.

If something is bothering you, don't just say "oh saying something won't make a difference. I'll just quietly go elsewhere." Let someone know why and be nice about it. It doesn't matter who you are. You CAN make a difference."
