Dora The Unisex-plorer

, , , | Right | April 13, 2018

(I work in a game room, and one of my main jobs is to help the customers pick out their prizes, show them their options, and be generally friendly. Every once in a while, though, people take offense to what is recommended.)

Me: “All right! Y’all have [amount]. What would you like?”

Customer: “What do you have that my toddler can play with?”

Me: “There’s these cases, and [prize] on the wall. Oh! We also have a small Dora the Explorer basketball!”

Customer: *looking like I just asked her to convert to Satanism* “Dora?! I have a son! What, does he look like a girl to you?” *lifts her child for me to see, who is no more than a year old*

Me: “Well, ma’am, I honestly just assumed Dora was a unisex thing. Plus, infants really don’t seem to have a sense of things like that.”

(The woman had nothing to say to that and turned to her boyfriend and made conversation, ignoring me for the rest of the encounter.)
