Some People Need To Be Put Away

, | MD, USA | Right | December 3, 2014

(I am finishing up my shopping experience by doing the impossible – putting the things I don’t want back where I got them. A random woman on her phone thrusts a pile of clothes into my arms.)

Me: “What the h***?”

(I drop the clothes on the floor.)

Woman: “What are you doing?! Put those away!”

Me: “Why the h*** would I put your clothes away for you?! Put them away yourself!”

Woman: “What the f*** is your problem?! DO YOUR JOB!”

Me: “I DON’T work here! Why would you assume that I did?! Pick up your clothes and put them away yourself!”

Woman: “Then why are you putting clothes away if you don’t work here?!” *smug that she caught me in a supposed lie*

Me: “Because that’s what you do when you don’t want to buy something – YOU PUT IT BACK.”

Woman: “Oh… Can you still put these away for me though?”

Me: “NO! Do it yourself!”

(She opened and closed her mouth a few times before just walking away. Some people seriously shouldn’t be allowed in stores.)

Able To Get Love For Money

| Surrey, BC, Canada | Working | December 1, 2014

(I’m at a clothing store where my friend works. I see my friend, so we start chatting. We chat for a good few minutes, until his manager comes over.)

Manager: “Hey, you, I need you to get out of my store. You’re distracting my employee from his work, and I don’t appreciate it.”

(The manager had a valid point, so I leave. About a week later, I receive a phone call.)

Me: “Hello?”

Caller: “Hello, is this [My Name]?”

Me: “Yes, that would be me.”

Caller: “This is [Caller] from [Friend’s Workplace]. I’ve called you today to let you know that your order has arrived. Feel free to come in anytime to pick it up.”

Me: “Okay, cool. Thanks!”

(I go back to the same clothing store to pick up my order. The first staff member I see happens to be the manager.)

Manager: “Hey, I thought I told you to get out of my store!”

Me: “Yeah, but that was last week. You just told me to come back in like 20 minutes ago!”

Manager: “Wait. You’re [My Name]?”

Me: “That’s riiiight!”

Manager: “Aw, d*** it! Fine.”

Me: “Money has a funny effect on people, doesn’t it?”

I Do Work Here, Does Not Work Here

| Perth, WA, Australia | Right | November 27, 2014

(I am working in a popular clothing store chain. I notice a woman browsing so I approach her.)

Me: “Hi there. Can I help you find anything?”

Her: “Oh, that’s very kind of you, but I’m sure I can flag down a staff member soon.”

Me: “I am a staff member.”

(She looks at me, somewhat shocked.)

Her: “You?! You don’t look like you work here at all!”

(I laughed and showed her my store ID. She blushed and apologised profusely. This actually happened on numerous occasions over the time I worked there. Every staff member looked quite similar: bleached blonde hair, long fake nails, tight, revealing clothing, and sandals or heels. Then there was me: naturally dark blonde, wearing the most subtle and body covering clothing the store carried, and sneakers. It was no wonder!)

Having A Boo Hoo About Your Hoo Hoo’s

| CA, USA | Right | November 25, 2014

(My school happens to have a similar uniform code as the store I’m walking into. Due to the fact today is hot I take off my shirt, revealing a tight and slightly revealing tank top which matches the uniform the store employees wear. I’ve also been blessed with looking older than I actually am, along with having bigger breasts and curves even though I’m younger than I look. I’m with a group of friends until I wander off to look for school materials — the reason we’re all here anyway — until this lady comes over.)

Lady: “Your uniform attire is inappropriate.”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Lady: “Exposing those poor young girls into thinking they have to follow the motto ‘sex sells.’ I demand to see your manager.”

Me: “But I don’t work here.”

Lady: “Then why are you wearing the same colors as he is?”

(A passing employee walks down the aisles.)

Me: “I go to [High School]. We have the same colors except our shirts are black. I just chose to wear a red tank top today.”

Lady: “I don’t want to hear your lies. I want to see your manager!”

Me: “But I don’t work here!”

(The lady storms off and I don’t think anything of it until she comes with the manager.)

Lady: “Her uniform is unacceptable! This is a family place and she’s showing her hoo hoos off with that string tank top! These girls do not need to be influenced by your employees’ need for sexual attention!”

(Needless to say I was ‘fired’ from somewhere I didn’t work and could pick up my check by the end of the week!)

Acting Very Cross(Dressing)

| England, UK | Working | October 23, 2014

(I have been clothes shopping with my wife. This is the fourth shop we have been in and I am truly fed up. While she is trying something on [again], I find a seat, and begin to play with my phone. A woman in her late 40s dressed as a teenager approaches me.)

Employee: *barking an order* “You can’t sit there.”

(I almost don’t look up as I am not paying attention.)

Me: “Huh, sorry?”

Employee: “You. Can’t. Sit. There.”

(I look around to see if there are any signs, I see nothing.)

Me: “Why?”

Employee: *with attitude* “Because this is a changing area, obviously!”

(The area I am sat in is not enclosed or private in any way. This woman obviously works here and has a problem with me, so I decide to have a little fun.)

Me: “So, what if I wanted to try something on?”

Employee: “What?”

Me: “I don’t see any ‘women only’ signs. What if I wanted to try something on?”

Employee: “Well, that isn’t going to happen…”

Me: “Are you telling me what I can and can’t wear?”

Employee: “What! No, I…” *she gives me a look like a deer in the headlights*

Me: “So, you are telling me that you personally don’t allow men in your store and you don’t support the trans community?”

(She starts to look around. I realise she didn’t see my wife go in to the changing room. For all she knew there could have been a guy in there changing as we spoke. People are starting to stare at her.)

Employee: *turning white* “I, er, I….” *leaves sharply*

Wife: “You are so embarrassing. I can’t take you anywhere!”
