Please Boycott Vitchner Landscaping. The owner uses the derogatory word, “Rutter,” referring to people in and around Athens Ohio. Upon confrontation, the owner, in anger, referred to me as a “Rutter” in a condescending manner. I believe that calling someone a “Rutter” is verbal abuse. This word is considered to be an slur and verbally abusive. I have asked the owner to please stop using the word, as I find it to be demeaning and classist. Despite my numerous prior requests to please stop, the owner of Vitchner Landscaping continued to use the word and then labeled me as such. Please do not support this verbal abuser. It’s unacceptable. Using this word is a boundary violation and the the owner was informed that this term is unacceptable.
My objection did not stop the verbal abuse.
