Think Before You Speak About What You’re Thinking

| Right | December 7, 2015

(I work at a store in a mall, and I’m commonly stationed right at the store’s entrance so that I can greet customers, give samples, and tell them about ongoing sales. A male customer walks in.)

Me: “Hello, sir, would you like to try a sample of our [new flavor]?”

Customer: *seemingly saying his thoughts aloud while looking right at me* “She’s pretty…”

Me: “…Please let me know if you need assistance.”

Customer: “I wonder if she has a boyfriend…”

Me: *smiles uncomfortably*

Customer: “Maybe I should ask her…”

(I edge toward the back room of the store, pretending I need to straighten some merchandise.)
