Got A Whole Lotta Love For This Manager

| Working | June 3, 2013

(I’m a 14-year-old girl. I’ve just selected three Led Zeppelin CDs, and head to the counter to make my purchase. The cashier is a middle-aged man.)

Cashier: “Are these for your dad?”

Me: “Actually, no, they’re for me.”

Cashier: “Uh, the One Direction CDs are over there.” *points*

Me: “Yeah, well, I hate One Direction. I much prefer Led Zeppelin.”

Cashier: “But girls your age are supposed to like One Direction!”

Me: “Yeah, well, I don’t! I like Led Zeppelin.”

Cashier: “It’s obvious that you have some sort of mental problem. It’s not normal for girls your age to like classic rock.”

(The manager has now approached the counter.)

Manager: *to cashier* “You! To my office now!” *to me* “I’m so sorry about that. He shouldn’t be talking to you that way. Personally, it’s great to see kids your age that appreciate great music.”

(He gave me 50% off for my troubles.)
