    Deciding On Which Managerial Post Is Splitting Pink Hairs

    | TX, USA | Crazy Requests, Health & Body, Theme Of The Month

    (I have bubblegum pink hair. I manage two stores in the general area, and I am an assistant district manager. Our products are quite pricey, so we tend to have ‘higher end’ customers.)

    Me: “Welcome to [Company]. How can I help you?”

    Customer: “What the h*** is wrong with your head?!”

    Me: “I’m not sure. Is there anything I can help you find?”

    Customer: “H***, no! You should be ashamed of that hair color!”

    Me: “I’m quite sorry, but, again, do you need any help?”

    Customer: “Your hair is obscene! Let me talk to your manager!”

    Me: “I am the manager, ma’am.”

    Customer: “What?! Fine, you smarta** b****! Let me talk to YOUR manager!”

    (I calmly bend down and switch to my ‘assistant district manager’ tag, and face the customer again.)

    Me: “All right. How can I help you?”

    (The customer turned red and she left without a word.)
