Harry Potter And The Christian Right-Wing

, , , , , | Right | July 27, 2018

(This story takes place just after the fifth “Harry Potter” book is released. I have my copy in my purse — like most stores, my employer only allows clear plastic purses and bags on the sales floor to discourage theft. This occurs while I am walking to the break room:)

Customer: “Do you work here?”

Me: *I’m off the clock but still respond* “Yes. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Oh, I don’t need anything except your name. I’m going to report you to your employer for promoting Satanism.”

Me: “Um…”

Customer: “I see that filth!” *points to “Harry Potter” book* “I can’t believe that the owner of this store would appreciate his employees advertising encouraging witchcraft.”

Me: “Ma’am, this is my personal property and had nothing to do—”

Customer: “Be quiet! I know evil when I see it, and this is inappropriate. I’m going to find a manager.”

Me: “Of course. Customer service is on the second floor. You can’t miss it. It’s right next to a very large display on Harry Potter merchandise, and is where I bought this book with my employee discount, just like almost every other employee and manager here.”

Customer: *mutters something about “Satan everywhere” and storms off*
