Today, I was working retail when a group of older gentlemen came in looking for a good sound system. I showed them a top-range system and gushed about it in detail, trying to close the sale. One of them snorted and said, "See Dave, girls like her are the reason ball gags were invented." FML

Not sure where the rest of my comment went. Men can't handle women who know more. Clearly they need to berate them to feel better about themselves. I'd put a ball gag in his mouth ;)

Whoah 13, no need to get sexist, men not handling women who are smarter isn't the case at all. It is just that old people can do a lot of rude things and get away with it.

Already with the feminist victimization? "Men can't handle strong, intelligent women so they put us down".

Perhaps when she was "gushing" about the sound system, one of the men verbally expressed his annoyance followed with the idea of putting a cork in it. You can sell something without tiring your costumer.

28- she is a sales person her job is to talk about the product, she may have gushed over it to make it sound like its amazing and something she wants to close the sale like she said.

Men can't handle it when women know more, and not all men, but I work as a sales person and I sell doors and windows and garages and parts to all that and just cause I'm a women I don't know anything yet none of those guys know a single hung to a double hung window or an interior door to an exterior one.

And even if that guy was tired of hearing her talk he could of walked away and had his friend listen, cuz I'll assume questions were asked about the product to make OP gush over it.

Y r some of u defending this douch? he straight up disrespected her while she was explaining something about what he wanted to know. He could have said thank you and walked away. That's all I'm saying

So since when does gushing about something mean you actually know something about your sale. The word alone brings to mind 13 year olds talking about boys. There's also a thing about overselling a product. The comment about the ball gag was rude, but at least they had the patience to listen to her.

"Older gentlemen". Although I would hesitate to call them "gentlemen".
If they wanted her to be quieter, they could have asked POLITELY - 'excuse me, could you talk slower, we have trouble understanding you', for example - rather than resorting to crude and sexist remarks.

How do you know she had an annoying voice though? And even if she did, what does that have to do with her ability to sell a product? People with annoying voices deserve jobs too.

Sadly, some people are just rude for the sake of being rude. You could be the best salesperson in the world, and there will always be someone who will complain about your service.

She could have just said: "this is the best we have" us men like it simple.. Telling us what the system can do is just taking al the fun out of finding it out ourselves. And yeah, although funny, it was a bit rude what the man said...

92- as I said in the last of my comment one of the group of gentlemen must have asked questions. And when sellin someone something if you sell it and don't like it they aren't going to buy it so just because she used the word gush, she could of said at the end of pitch that it was a top product( or a new one they got in I use that a lot) and said how amazing it was and wishes she had one


I agree with 23. But at the same time those men shouldn't be so mean to women. I mean just think, lots of women have helped the world. Take Rosa Parks for instance, without her black people would still be treated cruely.


BDSM is a sexual fetish term (bondage/dominance/sadomasochism) for when a person enjoys being dominated and physically hurt. It's not abuse though.

Seriously for the people who are too lazy to use Google, no one could give a straight definition?


0001 BCE and 0001 CE would be relatively close in time since BCE years are measured backwards.

On a timeline it would look something similar to:
500 400 300 200 100 0001 0 0001 100 200 300 400 500
