A Picture Perfect Moment Of Misogyny

, | Working | February 16, 2016

(I’m about 16 or 17 and a woman. I don’t like when people don’t take me seriously due to my age or sex so I try and go out of my way to be well spoken. Sadly, it doesn’t always work.)

Me: “I’m having some issues with my new camera. Whenever I plug it into my computer to try and upload the pictures my desktop doesn’t register the camera. It worked the first few times, but now it’s not showing up. Could it be something wrong with the cord or is it the camera?”

Employee #1: *takes camera, looks at it and takes a picture of me, and shows me the picture* “See, sweetie, your camera works fine.”

Me: *shocked into silence, I inhale slowly not knowing what to do next*

Employee #2: *rushes over* “Here, let me help you with that.”

Employee #1: *wanders off while Employee #2 helps me find a memory card reader*
