Don’t Lose Shut-Eye Over A Bad Eye

| Right | October 20, 2014

(I’m considered legally blind. I can see, but not well enough to drive, etc. I also have to look very closely when reading, especially small print. It’s something I was born with, so now at age 24 I joke around about it, even with customers, unless, like this guy, you’re a d***head. His credit card won’t read so I’m keying in the numbers manually, and he notices how closely I’m reading.)

Customer: “I’m surprised they let you work the cash.”

Me: “They’ve even made me a cashier supervisor, but why do you say that?”

Customer: “Well, you know, because of your eyes.”

Me: “What about them?”

Customer: “Well you have to look so close.”

Me: “And this is a problem?”

Customer: “Well… umm…”

Me: “Tell you what, if you ever see me driving a forklift in the store, then you can comment about my eyes. Until then, don’t lose any sleep over it.”
