A Queens man is suing his former employer, the furniture store Raymour & Flanigan, for discrimination after his manager allegedly would not stop making fun of his weight. According to court documents obtained by the Post, 48-year-old Thomas Hunt claims that supervisor Marlene Albarano denied him a promotion, and on one occasion even ordered him to walk circles around the building because of his stature. Ha-ha somebody tell Billy Crystal he's fired: we have a fresh, new comedic genius to host this year's Oscars.
Hunt also alleges in the complaint that at one meeting, after Albarano saw him eating cookies, she announced to the room that her mother had taught her to shut her mouth, "something [Hunt] clearly did not know how to do." After he complained about his treatment to the company, Hunt claims he was fired last February in retaliation, and is requesting unspecified damages in his lawsuit. Suggested retorts that Hunt could have used include "At least I'm not managing a Raymour & Flanigan" and "We get it, you're going to die alone."
