damn, you should be a stand-up comedian. consider quitting that day job, OP
Yeah there's no reason to quit your job because of that. Just brush it off. Customers these days can be exceptionally rude because the customer is supposedly always right, so they tend to think its acceptable to say things like that because there will be no repercussions. Plus, girls can be catty. Don't let it get to you!
What those girls did was not a joke, they were being little bitches because they could. I have seen the worst side of humanity working in retail. Some girl came up to my cash and told me I looked like a "starving African bitch" and it made her uncomfortable. She complained to my boss that I made her feel bad about herself. The woman had to be 350lbs. I was not sure what I was supposed to do? Gain weight in six second? My boss is pretty cool so he didn't even bother trying to 'reprimand' me to make the customer feel better, which has happened before over stupid shit. She suggested he hire "uglier, fatter women so no one would feel threatened when buying food." She said I looked like I was "judging" her about all her fatty foods. My boss just looked at her and said, "Perhaps you should purchase fruit?" She left agast and I have not seen her since.
Been there.I also work in retail and after losing forty pounds this lady asked if I was pregnant. I politely said no. She then had the audacity to continue and ask if I just had a baby. I again said no, a little more annoyed and explained that I just recently lost weight. I'm a size nine. No flab. Bitches. lol
Waaw! You could have just acted cool and walked.. Being satisfied with seeing them laugh..! Well.. Calculated risk Huh?
It's all good.. I'm a cashier and once a really cute guy came through my lane and was flirting with me. He came back through again because he forgot something. It was a pregnancy test.
I feel ya OP . Same scenario happened to me once and I just stood there motionless like a loser. I wanted to whip a bitch.
