(I am an adolescent korean boy who wears glasses)

(Once,when me and my family went shopping for my birthday,this went down)

*Walks into store*
Other customer,college age:Hi,how would this laptop work for writing?

Me:I have no idea.I don’t really know to much about (laptop brand named after fruit)

Other customer:yes you do!You’re asian and you’re wearing glasses!

Me:dude,not only is that racist,it’s unfair to assume someone knows something because of how they look.

Other customer:Listen,you’re going to tell me what I want or I’m gonna kick your little a** you [racial slur]

(At this point,my uncle,a six foot metal worker who has a reputation as a fighter in my town)

Uncle:(taps on dudes back) Unless you want to have YOUR a** kicked you’re gonna leave my nephew alone.Now,do you really want things to get physical here?

(At this point the kid looks ready to wet himself,and runs out of the store.After this,my uncle got me a new laptop!)

(It should be noted that I work in an adult store, and at this point, I have been working there for about seven months now. I don’t look like the type of person that would work in an adult store, so I’m used to getting questions about how I ended up working in the store as well as people trying to find out about my sex life because they think I don’t know anything about any of the items that we sell. Right now, there is only two people in the store, myself and a customer. I’ve been answering all sorts of question that he is throwing my way about a variety of products.)

Customer: You sure know a lot, you must be the owner!

Me: Oh no, I’m just an employee. But I do my research on our products so that I know what I’m talking about.

Customer: Oh. Well, how did you end up working here?

Me: I happened to shop here before I started working here. One day my boyfriend and I were going past when he noticed a help wanted sign. I wanted to work closer to home so I applied and got the job. As simple as that.

(I shrug and walk away so that I can fix our lube display. About ten minutes later, he asks some more questions and I answer them quite easily as they are questions I get on a regular basis on our products for men.)

Customer: You sure know a lot about the products here!

Me: Think of it this way, would you rather somebody work here that knows what they are doing, or somebody who has no idea what any of the products are that wouldn’t be able to help you?

Customer: Oh….I guess that makes sense.

(By this point, I’m getting a bit irritated because he keeps trying to ask personal questions about what I’ve used, and I have had to tell him multiple times that what I like, his wife might not like as well as telling him that I am not comfortable answering such personal questions. Thankfully, he pays for his items fairly soon after that and leaves.)

I am scanning in documents for a customer so he can email them. One sheet is double sided and the other single sided (so it’s 3 imprints total). I finish the scans and his email, then go to ring it up.

Me: That’ll be 80 cents.
Customer: Isn’t it 25 cents per page?
Me: Per side. One was double sided.
Customer: Well I didn’t want that side, it’s in Spanish!
Me: Ok, that’s fine, I’ll change it to two. It’s going to be…
Customer: Here! *throws change* 2 scans at 25 cents.

He leaves without finishing the transaction nor did he give me the right amount of change.
