Ameel, maybe he's new at his job and hasn't had to scan any feminine products prior to this. you never know, and even if its his job he could still feel a little awkward.. a lot of males are, and always will be, uncomfortable with the topic of periods and that cant be changed. im a female, i have to buy them once a month every month and sometimes still feel a little awkward when i have a male cashier. it happens, "tbh"
Still, it's a pretty obtrusive question to ask someone. Why does the cashier care who the OP is buying tampons/pads for? Was he deliberately trying to embarrass her? Surely he knows that most people don't like attention being brought to "personal" items that they might be buying. And anyway...many men DO buy pads/tampons for their sisters/daughters/girlfriends/wives/etc. So it's not like it's an uncommon occurrence that a man would buy such items for a woman. The cashier should just shut up and do his job, tbh.
Why do girls have to wear make up, "flattering clothes" as you put it, and do their hair nice and pretty every time they go out? Girls can't just look comfortable when they go to buy stuff? News flash! We don't. We can look just as sloppy as guys if we so choose to. The cashier is an idiot for not noticing that she is a girl!
I think some people voted YDI because some females like to dress like boys and act like them too. I have a lot of lesbian friends, some of them are very feminine, but some of them actually refer to themselves as "boys". That's what they feel like they are and what they feel comfortable as. So, if that's the case with OP than they deserve it and got the reaction based on their choice to dress they way they do.
I'm a girl and I hate wearing makeup, dresses, and things like that. I prefer jeans and a t-shirt. She could be like that as well, it doesn't mean that she deserves for someone to make a comment like that. I find it very sexist for guys to think that women always have to look pretty and wear makeup.
I believe it's a problem with some guys' ways of thinking. I know a couple people, some of them are/were good friends of mine, who had an incredibly hard time getting used to the thought that men can have long hair and women can have very short hair. It's really funny, actually, that most of them automatically assume that someone with long hair has to be a girl. Someday I'm gonna send them to a metal concert and watch as they get their mind blown.
No, like I said they are friends of mine and they definitely refer to themselves as boys, lesbians, and definitely love other women. That's just what they call themselves, how they feel about it may differ, but that's what I understand from it. Honestly, some of it gets kinda confusing. lol
Some cashier are nosey! I was once in line behind a guy buying a lot of food and the cashier joked "Hey! Looks like you're having a party! Am I invited?!" Turns out, it was for the guy's dead Aunt's wake. The look on the cashier's pale face was priceless! :P She didn't say a word to me when my groceries got scanned.
Where I live cashiers never do that. They can still be friendly or not friendly, just by the way they greet you (some don't even greet you..), but I think this is a bit to much and can cause bad situations or hurt people. Just like all named above. I can imagine so many things going wrong by just trying to be friendly...
He made 19 (and many more soon) accounts just to press a YDI button? I suppose he /should/ be allowed to exact his righteous judgement on her; how dare she pretend to be a boy just to embarass him! Now she will feel his merciless clicking, an inexorable tide of permanent shaming!
thats disrespectful..even if you were a boy, its none of the cashiers buisness who youre buying them for.
Being nice and friendly is just that; being generically pleasant and polite and nothing more. Have you ever worked a cashier-type job? Intrusive and personal comments are not the definition of being a friendly customer service employee. You're right, 7; the employee should not have said anything, period, so maybe OP should consider the source.
I love all the FMLs defending customer service people when they get treated badly, and now you all expect this guy to be nothing more than a silent machine scanning your groceries? The guy was probably bored as shit and just trying to start a conversation. Jeez people, the guy made a mistake, it happens.
I have had to buy pads for my wife before. Let me just say that I prefer as little conversation as possible, just let me get in and out quickly.
