From Depot Demon, March 2009:
I get all kinds of custys at a certain home improvement store who loves the color orange, including the most sexist assholes you can think of.
I work in Lumber and Building materials, which involves lifting some heavy shit. If I can't lift it, I can't work in that department. However, male customers love trying to get the other male associates in the department instead of me.
Here are some examples of shit that has been said to me and some I've heard from other women:
"You know, women shouldn't be working. You should be at home making your man dinner." (That one made me go WTF.)
"I got a bad back. Why don't you get one of the guys to lift this for me?"
"I'll go to the other store down the street. I don't want a girl to help me."
"Let me get a guy over here. You women don't really know what you're talking about"
"You know what? Let me get that guy to help me. He should know what he's talking about better than you."
"They must be desperate, if they're hiring girls"
This kind of thing happens all the time.
I love it when I'm the only one there, and I get to watch them suffer, or the look on their face when I lift something for them. It's like their world gets turned upside down! Muhaha!
