Disservice Dog

, , , , , | Working | March 11, 2015

(I work in a shop that has a cat. This cat does not like dogs and will attack them. The boss used to allows dogs that could be carried but has recently started sporadically enforcing an unposted “no dogs” rule. While I’m out of sight shelving, I hear her.)

Boss: “I’m sorry, but you can’t bring that dog in here. We have a cat and he doesn’t like dogs. Your dog is going to have to leave.”

(I walk out from behind the shelves and see a lady standing outside — with a dog with a very obvious service dog vest.)

Me: “Did you just make that service dog leave?”

Boss: “Yeah, he was upsetting [Cat].”

Me: “You do know that’s illegal, right?”

Boss: “No, it isn’t!”

Me: “Uh, yeah. ADA.”

Boss: “Well, I didn’t know that.”

(She’s owned this business for 15 years!)
