I never expect anyone to have a full-blown conversation with me at the liquor store, but I do expect people to at least explain what they need. If someone has a disability or speaks another language, I’m still happy to help in any way I can. The two men on these occasions, however, were just jerks.

The first man was a regular whom I had definitely heard speaking on the phone, in English. When it came to staff, however, he became a caveman. We used to have small bottles behind the cash, and a normal person would say, “Can I have [item]?” This man, however, would literally just point and grunt.

He did this a few more times until we all collectively had enough. It came to a head when he did his point-and-grunt at my coworker, who decided to point at every bottle he didn’t want until he admitted defeat and started speaking.

After that, he suddenly had a voice every time he needed something.

Here’s the second story. I knew this man could speak because I had literally helped him find something a few minutes prior. I went to the register, he came to me, and he just… didn’t say a peep.

Me: “Do you need a bag?”

Man #2: “…”

Me: “Do you have a points card?”

Man #2: “…”

Me: “How are you paying?”

Man #2: “…”

He took some cash from his wallet. I finished the transaction and he just stared at me.

Me: “Have a nice day.”

He continued to stare at me. Then, he looked at the bags and then back at me.

Me: “Did you need a bag?”

Man #2: “…”

He stared at me and then at the bags.

Ooookay. I bagged up his stuff and he left.

A few minutes later, he came back and stared at me.

Me: “Uhh… Can I help you?”

Man #2: “…”

He proceeded to slam change onto my counter, and then he stared at me and then at the change.

Me: “Okay? What do you need?”

Man #2: “…”

He stared at me, then at the change, and then back at me. My patience wore off at this point.

Me: “Okay. I need you to use your words now because I have no clue what you even want and this is very rude.”

He grunted that I had given him the wrong change. I corrected this, and he muttered a sarcastic thank-you before he wandered into the sunset.
