I love when I ask customers in reptiles if they need any help and they begin to ask me a question, only for a male employee to walk behind me.
I get to watch the customer trip over themselves to get my male coworker’s attention and then ignore me to ask them for help instead.
It’s so funny listening to my coworker give a shaky explanation, followed by quickly looking to me and asking, “Does that sound right? You’re the reptile person.”
The look on the customer’s face is always the most beautiful mix of shame and regret. They never make eye contact again.
