White In New Jersey, What A Concept

| New Jersey, USA |

(The store has a policy where if customers bring in empty printer cartridges they would receive a free ream of white paper. However, the store would only take a few brands.)

Customer: “I have these printer cartridges and I’d like to receive my free paper.”

Coworker: “I’m sorry ma’am but we don’t accept these brand.”

Customer: “You can’t be serious, what else am I going to do with them?”

Coworker: “Well the sign over there states which brands we take, but we can recycle them for you.”

(The customer turns to me.)

Customer: “Is this a race thing? Is it because I’m white?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “I’m serious. I demand to know if this is because I’m white!”
