(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.)


(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.)
