    (I am helping a customer when a red-faced older man walks up and slaps the counter.)

    Customer: “Why does [store] have illegals working here?! This is America!”

    Me: “Sir, I’m not sure what you’re talking about. If you can just calm down–”

    Customer: “Don’t you tell me to calm down! I fought for this country! I didn’t fight so that a bunch Mexicans could take over our country. You need to have someone here who speaks English in [department]!”

    Me: “Sir, your language and comments are offensive to me, and I would like you to not speak to me again. I will be happy to get a manager for you, though.”

    Customer: “F***ing Mexican lover!”

    Customer, to his companion: “Let’s get out of here! Now!”

    (I walk over to the department he was referencing. However, the only person there is a customer who just happens to be wearing something similar to our uniform. She smiles at me and says, in perfect English, “I really pissed him off, didn’t I?”)
