Bigots Don’t Get A Discount

| Germany | Bigotry, Family & Kids, Theme Of The Month

(I work at the ticket office of a museum. Tickets are €4 for children, and €6 for adults. We also have a family ticket for €17. A mother with two children comes in.)

Customer: “I’d like a family ticket for me and my kids.”

Me: “Ma’am, it’d actually be cheaper to buy three separate tickets.”

Customer: “Are you trying to tell me we’re not a family just because I’m a single mum? I can’t believe you’re discriminating against single parents!”

Me: “I’d never. In fact, I was raised by a single mother myself.”

Customer: “What if a gay couple came in with two children? Would you give them a family ticket?”

Me: “Yes, I would, because it’s a better deal for them.”

Customer: “So, those fancy rainbow families get a discount, but a hard-working single mum of two who can hardly make ends meet doesn’t?”

(Before I can respond, the customer grabs her children and storms off.)
