Way Short Of Political Correctness

| Working | December 9, 2015

(I work at a popular retail clothing store. I am rather short at 5’0″ tall, and the clothing racks are the same height. With sign toppers on them, I’m practically invisible. This conversation happens over our headsets.)

Manager: “Someone get over to ladies, QUICK! There’s a little kid with a pole trying to get something off the wall! HURRY!”

(I’m in ladies, so I stop what I’m doing and look around. I don’t see any poles up.)

Manager: *approaches me, out of breath from running, and talks into his walkie* “It’s okay, everyone. It was just [My Name].”
