would you feel that this was racist?

i put a pool on layaway at k-mart and guess what they didn't put it back in the layaway and was sold. this mad me very mad. so commly i asked if they had another one. i was given an attitude for no reason while they went to look. they seemed like they didn't want to help me at all. like i was wasting their time. to make a long story short, they had one but couldn't get a price to come up on it. mind you this has been 1 hour of waiting. so 1) they didn't have it 2) they didn't have anything close to it or a PRICE and 3) they stopped helping me and started helping another black woman who just walking up unlike me waiting that long. i told the manager i wanted my money back and i was never coming here again. she spoke up and said then maybe you should take you white ass somewhere else. so i lost my temper and told her where she could put the pool and the store. has this happened to you? what would you have done? im white.

  • It is KMART! What do you expect? Everyone who works there is ghetto and lacks social graces!

    I would still call and make a point to complain to an actual person...don't leave a message. Ask what will be done and tell them you'll be making a follow up call to see how the situation was handled - or that they call you back and let you know how it was resolved. You deserve an apology! Do not accept this kind of behavior, as this is what is making our country spin down the toilet!

  • i called them when i got home after spending the rest of the day finding one. they apologized and said that the matter would be handled. i am just still so mad! that was uncalled for and VERY unprofessional.
