I’m a 32 year old woman and a little overweight but not obeese by any means. Over the weekend I lost my wallet and have to replace everything. I have a doctors appointment the next morning so I go to a government office that houses 2 departments one for medical care, the other social security payments. As the self service is down for both departments the line to check in out the door and 98% of the chairs in the waiting area are taken. I have to squeeze past a lady in her 50’s to get to a vacant chair.

Lady: *huffs loudly as I squeeze past.*

I take a book out and start reading, while listening to music on my phone through one earbud.

Lady: how long does it take to make a claim?

I don’t realise she’s talking to me

Lady: hey I asked you a question. (Grabs my arm)

Me (removing my headphones): I’m sorry, what did you ask?

Lady huffs loudly: god listen when people talk to you. I asked how long it takes to make a claim.

I’m confused as it’s clear I don’t work there and I have no idea what department she’s talking about.

Me: I’m sorry, I have no idea. I’m just here to get a replacement Medicare card.

Lady: but your fat and obviously don’t work, so you’d be here all the time. Surely you have an idea.

Me in shock: ma’am, I do work, I’m currently on annual leave and I’m here because I need to get my card replaced for my first doctors appointment in well over a year. I suggest actually asking someone who works here. (I put my headphones back in both ears this time and go back to my book.)

Lady loud enough to hear over my music: how rude. You have no right to talk to me like that, you fat little b****. You have no idea who I am. I’m the owner of (local upmarket store). I deserve respect.

I continue to ignore her but notice security approach. Another customer sitting on the other side of me pipes up before the guard gets to us.

Customer: no, you don’t. You’ve been very rude and physically assaulted this young woman. You’ve been waiting 10 minutes, I’ve been waiting for nearly an hour. Shut up and be patient like everyone else.

Everyone else waiting and the guard starts laughing. The lady notices the security guard.

Lady: you! You need to deal with this b****. She’s been extremely rude and disrespectful.

Guard: ma’am. May i have your name please.

Lady gives us a smug look: its (name) finally someone that actually shows some respect.

Guard: thank you. Now, you actually assaulted this women and have been verbally abusive. You need to leave unless this young lady would like to press charges.

Lady: what? You (racist slur). You have no idea who I am.

Another guard comes over: police are on the way.

Lady gets up runs out of the building screaming that the guards are all (racist slurs) and I’m nothing but a fat b****. I’m shown to a office to talk with the police where I decline pressing charges and I finally get what I need for the doctors.

When I finished I go to (local upmarket store). I walk in to find the lady behind the counter.

Lady: oh my god. Your following me. Get out of my shop. You s***.

Me: so your the ower are you?

Lady: yes. Now get out before I call the police. Nothing would even fit you here you fat s***.

At this point my mum comes from the back of the shop.

Mum: (lady) what’s going on here?

Lady,: this piece of sh** is the one who disrespecting me earlier. Now she’s followed me here. She needs to leave.

Mum: (my name) what happened?
I tell her exactly what happened and that the cops will probably be wanting to speak with her. All the while she’s screaming that I am disrespectfull and a stalker.

Me: I thought you owned this shop. That’s funny because (my mums name) is co-owner. And I’m (my name) the silent partner. Now get out of my store. Your fired.

She had recently been hired at the store I co-own with my mum. My mum managers the store while I manage my father in-laws business. When she realised who I am and what was happening she proceeded to thow and destroy stock. Before either me or mum can call the police, 2 officers turn up to investigate the previous incident.

In the end she’s charged with assault and criminal damage.
