There’s No Make-Up That Can Cover That Kind Of Ugly

, , , | Right | January 30, 2018

(I am the manager of a makeup counter located within a department store. It is a fairly slow business day, so I am taking the time to sort some of our stock alphabetically. My counter next to the register is covered in stacks of our eye pencils that I am sorting, when two women came up to the counter with their purchases. I push the eye pencils aside and begin to ring them up. I am generally very friendly and conversational.)

Me: “Did you find everything okay today?”

(They are talking over me, talking to one another, and generally being very tactless, but I continue ringing them up, keeping any further questions to myself.)

Customer: *grabbing a handful of the eye pencils* “What are these? Are they free? Just throw ’em in my bag.”

Me: “Those are some of our eyeliners. I was just sorting—”

Customer: “I’ll take some for me and some for my friend.” *starts tossing them in their bag*

Me: “Ma’am, I would gladly give them to you, but you’d have to pay $16.50 a piece for them.”

Customer: “Ugh! Then why are they here?!”

Me: *pause* “Because we sell them?”

Customer: *literally throwing them out of her bag* “Never mind!”

(She snatched the receipt from my hand, and both women walked off, badmouthing me.)
