Discovered A New Pet Hate

, , , , | Right | February 25, 2019

(I work doing technical support at a retail branch of a large technology company. I have been helping a customer restore her much older device to factory settings, solving many of its problems and prolonging its usability. She looks to be about in her mid-60s.)

Customer: *beams happily at me* “Oh, you’re such a good girl.”

Me: “O… kay?”

Customer: *as though I was a well-trained dog* “You’re my good girl.”

Me: “Uh…”

Customer: *reaches out and pats me on my head*

Me: “Thank you?”

(Honestly, I was much too startled to be outraged or have any sort of response! About fifteen minutes later, I couldn’t believe what had actually transpired.)
