In Violation of Americans with Disabilities Act

When he came back, I explained that it is not rude to request an assistive device for a disability and asked for contact information for his supervisor. This was refused as he told me he was the "General Manager". I then told him I would like the contact information for Icon's Corporate Office.

Nowhere in this act is
