The Mother Is The One That Got Burned

| Right | February 26, 2016

(I work at a large chain video game store and my girlfriend will come into the store close to the end of my shift almost every day. About six years ago she got into a really bad car wreck and had about seventy-five percent of her body burned and has some pretty bad scarring on her arms and face. A woman with a boy and girl, both under ten, has been staring at her for a while before she walks up to me.)

Woman: “I would like to ask for that girl to be removed.”

Me: “Why do you think she needs to leave?”

Woman: *scoffs* “Her face is scaring my kids!”

(I am fighting back the urge to scream at her because my girlfriend can clearly hear her and is very self conscious about her scars.)

Me: “I can’t tell her to leave if she hasn’t done anything.”

Woman: “I’M IN HERE TO BUY THINGS! SHE HAS JUST BEEN STANDING HERE FOR TEN MINUTES!”

(By now my girlfriend looks like she’s about to cry.)

Me: “If your kids are scared of someone who almost died then you are clearly not doing the best job at teaching them to accept people who are different!”

(We left as my girlfriend started crying. It took me almost an hour to get her to calm down.)
