Someone’s Been Pumpkin At The Gym

| Cleveland, OH, USA | Bigotry

(I work in a grocery store, and we’ve just gotten some very large pumpkins for the fall season. I am a female.)

Customer: “Excuse me, is there a man working here who could help me out?”

Me: “Um, he’s somewhere around here. What did you need?”

Customer: “Well, I really want that big pumpkin, but it’s so heavy and I can’t lift it.”

Me: “Oh, I can get it for you!”

(The customer puts her hand on my arm to stop me as my male manager walks by.)

Customer: “You, can you help me with this pumpkin?”

Manager: “Are you kidding me?! She’s much stronger than I am!”

(I get the pumpkin into her cart with ease, and she doesn’t say a word to me.)

Me: “There you go, ma’am. Have a nice day!”
