Maybe she had a problem that you did not know about and has been bullied for it within her life.
#57- You really censored the word retard? Come on, don't you think you're taking it a little too far? Retarded means "not working properly." So if I call my computer retarded, or my dog retarded for running into a screen door, am I being politically incorrect? Ridiculous. Yes, I do call my friends retarded. And it has absolutely no horrible connotation to it because it's a JOKE. Also, to clarify: I don't call mentally handicapped people retarded, and I have the utmost respect for them. No one should ever make fun of them. But...using a word that has an actual definition, and not using it to truly make fun of or offend someone, is completely fine.
This is when it is important to know the difference between the terms "Fire-Retardant" and "Fire-Resistant."
Dang, talk about unreasonably rude. These, some customers are so hard to deal with. I was once a music store and there was this girl who just kept screaming everytime she say a retardando (I don't remember how to spell it) so the guy basically had to keep his mouth shut while half teaching her half crying because she kept calling him a "gay whore" for calling her a "retard"
