(I work at a video game store, and I’m one of the few female employees.)

Customer: *hands me a 360 box* “I need this game on the PS3.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but this game is actually only made for the Xbox 360 and PC.”

Customer: “Are you sure? I know I’ve seen it on the PS3!”

Me: “No… the company that makes this game works exclusively for Microsoft. Sony doesn’t have the rights to sell this game on their consoles.”

Customer: “Well, let me talk to one of the MALE employees. Maybe he can find this game on the PS3 for me.”

(The customer walks over to my fellow employee.)

Customer: *to Male Employee* “She doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Can you show me where I can find the PS3 version?”

Male Employee: “Umm… she is correct. That game is made by a Microsoft-owned company. It will probably never come out on the PS3 unless Microsoft decides to sell the rights to that game to Sony.”

Customer: “That’s it! I’ve had enough! ALL I WANT IS THIS GAME ON THE PS3! IT SHOULDN’T BE THAT DIFFICULT! LET ME TALK TO YOUR MANAGER!”

Male Employee: *points to me* “There she is.”

Customer: “Agh!” *throws game on floor and storms out*
