Always The Bridesmaid, Never The Bigot

, , , | Right | November 21, 2019

(I’m at a locally-owned florist shop looking for flowers when I overhear one of the employees talking excitedly with a lesbian couple about their wedding. After the couple leaves, another shopper approaches the employee.)

Customer: *to the employee* “God, I didn’t think they’d ever leave! They don’t pay you enough to serve people like that!”

Employee: “Like who, sir?”

Customer: “Like them! Those women were gay!”

Employee: “Oh, I know. I’m a bridesmaid. Personally, I think they look absolutely adorable together.”

(The customer looks appalled and leaves the store in a hurry. The employee sees me watching and raises an eyebrow in my direction.)

Me: “Are you really a bridesmaid?”

Employee: *breezily* “Nope! Never seen those women before in my life!”
