    Armed To The Pants

    Equality Is Worth Fighting For

    | USA | Bigotry

    (One of my supervisors is an attractive, rather petite girl and fragile-looking, but at heart she’s a big tomboy and much stronger than she looks. She comes into to work one day with her hand bandaged and splinted, and it’s pretty obvious she did it herself. I’m helping a customer in her 40s with art supplies, which is not my area of expertise.)

    Customer: *pointing at my supervisor* “What happened to her hand?”

    Me: “I don’t know, ma’am. She just started her shift so I haven’t had time to ask her. Is there anything else I can help you find?”

    Customer: “Do you think her boyfriend did that to her?”

    Me: “No.”

    Customer: *to my supervisor* “Oh, honey! What happened to your hand?!”

    Supervisor: “Oh, it’s nothing serious. I’ll be fine.”

    Customer: “Did your boyfriend do that?”

    Supervisor: “No.”

    Customer: “How’d it happen?”

    Supervisor: *awkward smile* “Umm…well, the short version is a guy hit me in a bar, and I hit him back…but I didn’t brace my wrist correctly.”

    Me: “Oh, man, OW! You got a boxer’s fracture?”

    Supervisor: “Yeah. I’ll be fine, though. The worst part was having to play piano with this splinted this morning.”

    Customer: *horrified* “You didn’t let your boyfriend defend you?!”

    Supervisor: *frowning* “I’m not seeing anyone, and even if I was, I was closer.”

    Customer: “But you’re a girl!”

    Supervisor: *trying to change the subject* “Ma’am, have you found all the art supplies you need today?”

    Customer: “REAL GIRLS LET MEN DEFEND THEM!”

    Some Sprinkles Come With Sergeants

    | CA, USA | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink, Military, Top

    (At the restaurant where I work, my boyfriend is visiting me. He’s just gotten home from the army and is still in uniform. A customer approaches me.)

    Customer: *points at sprinkles* “Excuse me, there is ice in my ice cream!”

    Me: “Sir, those are sprinkles. You asked for rainbow sprinkles.”

    Customer: “They are too cold to be sprinkles, so they must be ice!”

    Me: “The ice cream is what’s making them cold, sir.”

    Customer: “You’re a liar, you b****! Get me your f***ing manager!”

    (Unwilling to take the customer’s abusive behavior, my boyfriend speaks up.)

    My Boyfriend: “Those are f***ing sprinkles, you a**hole! If you don’t like it, then just go home and make your own ice cream!”

    Customer: *quickly exits the restaurant*

    Manager: *to my boyfriend* “You should stop by more often! I’ll even pay you to handle these customers!”
