    Colorful Comments Can Get You Burned

    | Pittsburgh, PA, USA | Health & Body

    (A customer in maybe her late 40s or early 50s walks up to the counter while she waits for her drink.)

    Customer: “Oh honey, are you okay?”

    Me: “Well, yeah…why?”

    Customer: “Your skin… it’s so pale!”

    Me: “Oh, I’m just naturally very fair-skinned. Whole family is.”

    Customer: “But sweetie, you look awful.”

    Me: “…I’m sorry?”

    Customer: “You look just AWFUL! So sickly.”

    Me: “Well, thank you for your concern, but I feel just fine.”

    Customer: “No, really, you look TERRIBLE!”

    Me: “Gee, thanks.”

    Customer: “What?! I’m just trying to be helpful! You should really see a doctor about that skin of yours, you just look horrible!” *takes her drink and leaves*

    Me: “Uh… what just happened?”

    (At this point, another younger, female customer speaks up.)

    Another Customer: “Some giant piece of old burnt toast trying to reclaim her long lost youth.”
