Getting Owned By The Owner

| USA | Right | October 25, 2012

(I work in a privately owned bookshop, and the shop owner/manager has very little patience for rude customers. He’s generally not unkind about it unless you upset other customers, though. He actually owns the property where the shop is located, and rents neighboring spaces to other businesses.)

Customer #1: *to another customer* “You have a very nice a**!” *tries to grab her*

Customer #2: *alarmed and backing away* “Don’t touch me!”

Customer #1: “God, you feminist c***s need to learn to take a d*** complement! Besides you can’t f***ing tell me what to do, I’ll touch you if I godd*** want!” *tries to touch her again*

Me: “Sir, I’m going to have to ask you to leave.”

Customer #1: “What’re you going to do about it? You’re only a woman, you have no right to tell me what to do. I have more rights than you! I’m better than you!” *tries to hand me a slip of paper* “Get me that book, slave!”

Me: *refusing to take it* “You need to leave, sir.”

Customer #1: “Get me your manager, stupid w****!”

Manager: *approaching from behind, and speaking firmly to Customer #1* “Get out.” *to Customer #2* “I’m so sorry. Please let me know if there’s anything I can help you with.”

(Customer #2 starts to tell him what she’s looking for, handing him a reading list, but Customer #1 isn’t done yet.)

Customer #1: “Hey, who do you think you are, buddy? Do you even know which book this is?” *waving the paper at him*

Manager: “I’m fairly certain everyone over the age of 12 knows what book that is.” *frowning* “I thought I told you to get out.”

Customer #1: “Only the property owner can tell me to leave!”

Manager: “Well even if that were true, I do own this property. So, you have two options. You can say good bye and leave, or you can just leave, which I would prefer.”

(Customer #1 leaves, embarrassed. However, he remains in the parking lot, so afterwards my boss walks Customer #2 to her car. I ended up having to call the police to get rid of Customer #1.)

    See, this is why I don’t take people who hate ‘feminists’ seriously and never will. Feminism had nothing to do with this situation and has nothing to do with 90% of the situations these kind of people bring it up in. People don’t like your behavior because it’s cruel, rude and a poor example of how to be a person, not because of feminism. Activists were just taught to speak up to your curdled a**. What kind of entitled, evil creature do you have to be to think that you’re entitled to physically assault people?

    If other people, religion or the law is what’s stopping you from sexually assaulting people, leave society. You’re still a terrible human being.

      Oh, and these anti-feminists are also woefully ignorant of their history: Back in the day, when it was socially unacceptable for women to speak up to defend themselves, they WERE allowed to wear enormous hats that required pins to stay in place. And those pins often doubled as weapons (six inches long, in some cases — you could stab a dude and be on your way) And were ENCOURAGED to use them to defend their virtue. Nowadays, we just use mace and our keys.

      History is fun!

    He started off badly, he ended up considerably worse.

    There is no place in society for someone like that. Absolute evil.
