Wrapped That Around Back To Them

, , , , | Right | February 26, 2019

(I am working the customer service desk when a woman approaches with an item.)

Me: “Hi. Returning?”

Woman: “Yes. It’s just too small.”

Me: “Okay, no problem. Do you have the receipt?”

Woman: “I do, right here.”

(We go through the transaction with no problem. At the end, I hand over the new receipt and she hands me a folded piece of paper.)

Woman: “I think you’d be a great model. Give us a call.”

Me: “Oh. Thank you, I never really— Wait. This is for [Holistic Wellness Company].”

Woman: “Yes, I’m [My Name]; I’m one of the top representatives! I think you’d be a wonderful candidate for our stomach wrap. It just melts the fat right off!”

Me: “Uh…”

Woman: “I may even be able to get you on our website! Give me a call, okay?”

Me: “No, thank you. I’m not interested.”

Woman: *offended* “It’s all-natural! Your belly could be flat!”

Me: *lifts my shirt to show a g-tube in my stomach* “I need more fat, not less. I don’t think I’m a good fit for this product.”

Woman: *sneering at my stomach* “Ew. Well. Everyone could stand to lose a few pounds.”

Me: “Okay, then. I hope those wraps work for you. Have a nice day.”

(The woman complained to management that I’d insulted her weight, bragged about my body, and flashed her. She demanded compensation in the form of a $100 gift card. When management called me over to apologize to her, I showed him the paper she gave me and gave my side of the story. He returned the handout, told the woman we had a “no solicitation” policy posted at every door, and escorted her out of the building.)
