Why is this not a Double Standard?

Person A was told that she'd be in a lot of trouble if she were to say F--- you to Person B yet Person B didn't get into any trouble at all when he said it to Person A.

Person B has absolutely no authority over Person A. They're not siblings.

Update:

Again, Person B isn't a parent!

    It IS a double standard.  It would be a good time for you to start getting used to double standards.  You will run into many, many more of them in life.

    Especially if you are a white, Christian, Republican man - in which case you are the butt of all double standards.

    Person "B" MUST be a LIEberal left socialist demoCROOK OR of African American decent and will SCREAM "DISCRIMINATION!!!!" IF they got terminated for ANY reason, given a FREE attorney or lawyer and SUE the company for a LIFETIME of pay and person "A" is a Caucasian and is AUTOMAGICALLY guilty and ALL of this is based ENTIRELY on skin color and political preference!!!!

    1.  Because Person B was not warned of the penalty for saying it to Person A.

    2.  Because the person of authority who made the warning does not have first hand knowledge person B said it to person A.

    And even if it is a double standard, it is not illegal.  Not fair, but not illegal.

    If things are as you describe,   clearly person A has the favor of who ever is the manager.

    Knowing this person B should realise he cant win in an argument with that person.
