The Forecast Is Rain And Tantrums

, , , | Right | January 4, 2021

I work at a low-price clothing shop where we sell clothes for every age and gender; thus, a lot of our customers bring their children. This week a woman comes in with her daughter who’s around five or six, maybe.

Woman: “Excuse me, do you guys sell raincoats for children?”

Me: “Not at the moment. Sorry, ma’am.”

The woman continues shopping and queues up at the register after a while. By now, her daughter is crying and screaming loudly, as sitting on the floor without her shoes.

Girl: “I WANT A RAINCOAT!”

Woman: “They don’t have any. I’ll pay for this and we’ll get you a raincoat elsewhere.”

Girl: “GET ME A RAINCOAT OR I WON’T PUT MY SHOES BACK ON!”

Woman: “Don’t try to blackmail me, young lady. They don’t have any raincoats.”

Girl: “GET ME A RAINCOAT OR I’LL TAKE OFF MY UNDERWEAR!”

This continues for a while until the mother pays and leaves the shop. An elderly woman walks up to the register after the mother and her daughter have left.

Elderly Woman: “If she were mine, I would’ve definitely given her up for adoption already.”

I honestly did not know how to respond to that.
