Emma Gets Frosty

, , , , | Working | November 5, 2012

(I’ve stopped by a comic store near where I live. I see an attractive young woman and an employee arguing.)

Employee: “I’m telling you, we don’t have what you’re looking for here.”

Woman: “Yes, you do. I was just looking at what I want.”

Employee: “We don’t have anything for girls here!”

Woman: “Do you know who I am?”

Employee: “A lost girl who won’t listen to me!”

Woman: “No. I work for [Comic Publisher]. I write comics for a living, and I’m here to look for a [Popular Superhero Comic] that was recommended to me.”

Employee: “Bulls*** you work for [Comic Publisher]! They don’t hire girls!”

Woman: “I am the writer of [Comic Series].”

Employee: “I highly doubt that!”

Woman: *crosses her arms* “Then go check!”

Employee: “Oh, I will! Girls can’t write comics!” *storms off*

(Eventually, the employee returned, albeit sheepishly; apparently the woman was telling the truth!)
