Old Lady Hell: I DO work here lady...even with “that hair!”




From briannabanana98, Tales From Retail:

I happen to have bright turquoise hair that I dye other unnatural colors quite frequently...and at the time I was also a cashier at a lovely colorful place that rhymes with Farty Titty....

Let’s refer to the rude customer as Old Lady, OL for short.

In this story, I am about 5 or 10 minutes early for work, and I had to walk to the back of the store to get to the “EMPLOYEES ONLY” part of the store.

On my way there, OL stops me and says, “Wow, your hair is very bright! But how would you expect to get a job with that hair?! Such a shame!!” I just kinda smiled and nodded because I am socially anxious and don’t know how to respond to something like that. Well, a few minutes later, I go up to the registers and relieve the cashier for lunch break, and clock in. No sooner do I finish a balloon order does OL come up to the register and puts all of her items on the counter before she looks at me and realizes ITS ME. The 20 year old who she insulted 5 minutes earlier by calling me unemployable for my hair....

Needless to say OL stood red faced, saying absolutely nothing to me while I rang her out and handed her bags to her. She practically ran out of the store when she had all her stuff and her receipt...I about died laughing when she left.
