I just asked a fat lady...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
So I work in retail. A fat lady...say...5'3, 250 lbs came up to the register to pay. She ordered size medium thongs. I asked her if she would like a gift receipt. She looked at me puzzled and said no. I said, "oh okay, I wasn't sure since they're not for you". She said that they were. Awkwarrrdddddd!

What do you think about what I said? Was it rude?

I think anybody would assume the same thing. I'm sure you didn't intend to sound rude.

Why was that your business. Seems a little personal for a cashier to ask or question. You are getting paid to do a job, and that job isn't quizzing fat chicks about their undergarments. This is why I get so absolutely disgusted with low wage workers. Don't take it out on your customers just because you hate your job.
