Breast To Just Support Her, Part 2

, , , , , | Right | March 16, 2020

(I’m working the till on a particularly nice summer day when I notice a rather irate man coming up to the counter.)

Me: “Is there something I can help you with?”

Customer: “Uh, yes. I would like you to ask her to kindly remove herself from the store.”

(The customer points me in the direction of a woman breastfeeding her child while seated with a friend and their two children. She’s covered herself and her child with a blanket with no particular areas visible.)

Me: “So, what seems to be the problem?”

Customer: “The problem?! She’s—” *sharply whispers* “—breastfeeding!”

(He has now drawn the attention of the breastfeeding woman and her friend.)

Me: “And she has every right to.”

Customer: “Aren’t you going to do anything about this?!”

(The breastfeeding woman is now fully attentive to our conversation.)

Me: “By law, it would be illegal for me to do so. You can either accept this and enjoy your meal, or you can find the door.”

Customer: “You can’t talk to me like this! I demand to speak to a manager!”

(I call my manager in from her office and she comes out to the front.)

Manager: “What seems to be the problem?”

Customer: “Your employee has been very rude to me this whole time and refuses to ask this woman to leave!”

Manager: “And what exactly did my employee say to you?”

(The irate customer gives my manager the gist of my words.)

Manager: “Good, so he’s saved me the trouble. You can either leave this poor customer be, or I can point you towards the nearest exit. Have a nice day!”

(The man’s face flushed red, and he ducked his head as he quickly moved towards the exit. The woman and her friend got their meals for free, and two $50 gift cards, as well!)
