This Halloween I’m Dressing Up As White Privilege

, , , , , | Right | October 31, 2019

(I am working the floor and see a customer in our mask section trying on clown masks and scaring his girlfriend. I like to suggest a chainsaw to go with the mask because people like the prop to take pictures with.)

Me: “You know, these chainsaws go really good with the clown masks.” *offering him a chainsaw I brought over*

Customer: “You know what else goes with a clown mask? A neighborhood filled with white rich people that feel entitled!”

(Mind you, he appears to fit this description.)

Me: *very confused and not quite sure what to say* “Um, yeah. Well, have a wonderful evening and let me know if I can help you with anything.”

(His girlfriend gave me a look like this wasn’t a rare thing. I and the rest of the employees had a good laugh over my first time having a customer outburst.)
