(I work at a local grocery store where I push carts from the parking lot back into the store, we also offer an escort service where we help customers unload their groceries into their car. I was helping an elderly woman to her car and unload her groceries, when suddenly a customer comes charging down the parking lot and points at the old woman)

Customer: “Can you believe this!?”

Me: “Is something-”

Customer: “She’s a COMMUNIST! Can you believe it!? A REAL LIFE COMMUNIST! She’s a COMMIE!”

(At this point I am completely dumbfounded. I look to the old woman, who looks completely confused, then look back to the customer who begins to walk inside, all while yelling.)

Customer: “SHE’S A COMMUNIST! LOOK EVERYONE! A COMMUNIST!!!”

(I apologized to the old woman, who was very confused however she didn’t seem bothered by it at all. I asked her if she knew what brought that on and she genuinely had no idea. I offered to report the customer for her, she refused and thanked me for her help and concern. As she got into her car I closed her trunk and saw on her bumper a “Yes We Can” Obama sticker. Considering that she clearly didn’t know the man and we live in a fairly conservative area of New York, I could only assume that the Obama bumper sticker is what set him off.)
