Blind To Reason

, , , , , | Right | February 17, 2010

(A customer walks in with a small dog in her purse.)

Me: “Excuse me, miss, but you can’t have your dog in here. You’ll need to leave it in your car.”

Customer: “Why? Chanel is my baby! There is no way I could leave her in my car!”

Me: “Miss, having your dog in here is unsanitary. She has to go back into your car before you can shop.”

Customer: “That is so dumb! Let me speak to your manager!”

Manager: “What seems to be the problem, miss?”

Customer: “This girl says I can’t have my dog in here! But I totally should be allowed to. Babies are allowed in, and Chanel is my baby!”

Manager: “Babies are a different story, miss.”

Customer: “My dog could die if I leave her in the car!”

(A clearly blind man now comes in with his seeing-eye dog.)

Customer: “You let that guy with his dog in! This is sexual discrimination!”

Manager: “Miss, that man is blind. We can’t tell him to leave his dog outside.”

Customer: “So, only blind people can have their dogs in the store?”

Manager: “That’s right.”

(The customer leaves, and my manager disappears. 10 minutes later, the customer returns. She is wearing sunglasses and has her dog on a leash.)

Me: “Miss, I’ve already told you this. You need to leave your dog in your car.”

Customer: “But I’m blind and this is my seeing dog!”

Me: “You weren’t blind ten minutes ago, and you aren’t blind now. Please leave, or I will have you escorted out.”

Customer: “Fine, I’ll shop somewhere else! God, you people are so dumb!”
