What An Ugly Opinion, Part 2

, , , , , | Right | October 14, 2020

I work as a cashier, and I happen to be working the closing shift tonight. I cash out this customer a few minutes before the store closes, but she waits until I’m finished with the last customer in the building to come and talk to me.

Customer: “Excuse me, do you have something I could write with?”

I reach for my pen and pad of paper, assuming she wants me to write down our rewards program website, which happens often. She takes them from me and begins to write herself. 

Customer: “Have you ever had a facial?”

Me: “No, ma’am, I have not. “

Customer: “Ah! Well, I could help you, then. My son, he had issues with the ugly, too.

She now gestures to my face.

Customer: “But I fixed it for him. I would do a nice job, I promise!”

She hands me back the pen and paper, where she has written her business information. 

Customer: “Come by and I will help!”

She pauses and waits for my response.

Me: “Umm, thank you?”

Customer: “Oh! You are very welcome!”

She wiggled her fingers at me and left. I was angry at myself later for thanking a stranger who called me ugly. Almost a year later, I haven’t seen her again.
