My mother is in her 70's but very active; she's always been very hands on, spends all summer out in the yard and can handle just about any tool and fix-it project (except electric wiring which scares her). Anyway she decided to downsize a bit and get rid of things in her tool chest - an entire rolling cart - keeping just the stuff she uses the most.
She went to a chain store and was looking at the tool boxes when the salesman came over and asked if he could help. She asked him if those were the only toolboxes they had or did they have anything LARGER. His reply? "We have some pink ones over there".
Hello?!? Pretty sure we asked about size not color. And pointing a Woman to the "pink" toolboxes? She just said that wasn't what she was looking for and let it go. A couple days later though I'm still annoyed about this. I feel like he assumed the weak little ladies must want the girly toolbox for show or something. Just bugs me!
