Sorry Not Sorry  

, , | Right | September 5, 2019

(I have just walked into my store to begin my shift when a woman comes over from a department I am familiar with but not scheduled in, waving her arms and yelling.)

Customer: “Hey! Do you work here?”

Me: “Yes, I do.”

Customer: “Do you see me over here waiting?”

Me: “Let me get clocked in and I’ll be right with you. I’m sorry about your wait.

Customer: “No, you’re not.”

Me: “Uh. Okay, then.”

(I did help her, despite my incredible urge to just go do my own job. She berated me the entire time, saying I should have known she was there and calling me racist for not jumping to help her. When I pointed out that we were both white women, she told me I was sexist, too. I didn’t apologize for anything else during the conversation because, if we’re being honest, I wasn’t sorry.)
