When Video Games Become Babysitters

, , , , | Right | March 11, 2020

(I work at a big-box video game store and am the only female employee on today.)

Female Customer: “A girl actually works here?”

Me: “Excuse me? Uh, yes, I work here. Can I help you with anything?”

Female Customer: “Can you babysit my son?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Female Customer: “My son loves video games and needs a babysitter. My God, why didn’t I think of this sooner? You would be perfect. How old are you?”

Me: “Ma’am, I don’t think I can do that.”

Female Customer: “Well, why not? It will be easy. Just play games with him for a couple of hours.”

Me: “Because I don’t know you or your son?”

(The customer continued to harass me about babysitting her son until my manager came in and escorted her out.)
