Customers Should Watch Their Language, Part 2

| Michigan, USA | Right | January 13, 2012

(I have moderate competency in Mandarin Chinese, but it is not apparent because I’m not Asian.)

Me: “Hello! Can I help you find anything today?”

Customer #1: “No, we’re just looking.”

Customer #2: “Just looking.”

Me: “All right, just let me know if you need any help.”

Customer #1: *in Mandarin* “I told her to go away. She doesn’t listen!”

Customer #2: *in Mandarin* “She’s a dumb girl. Just ignore her.”

Me: *in Mandarin* “Hey look, the dumb girl speaks Mandarin.”

    I’ve had similar things where we had some french customers in, and the cashier could speak fluent french. These french customers started to badmouth the cashier in french, until the cashier said “Will that be everything?” in french, to which the customers just looked, shut up and turned red trying to leave ASAP.
