The person scanning was young. They looked to be about 14 or 15 and like it was their first day. I was behind a lady in line who kept asking for things to be removed from her order AFTER the girl rang it, had tons of different coupons, a lot of produce, and wanted cash back. The girl was new and wasn't sure how to do some of that yet. The woman started getting irritated at how long it was taking for the manager to come over and help the girl. So she decides its okay to yell at the child. She points in the girls face saying, "how incompetent can you be? Maybe you should have stayed in school you're clearly not cut out for this line of work." The girl apologized but the woman kept at it. 


After about 5 minutes I snapped on the customer (she started talking about how "her people" can't do anything right persumably about her being black. I told her that while the poor girl couldn't say anything I could. That I thought she was fucking disgusting in here yelling at a child. I told her to shut her ass up and wait patiently like the rest of the adults in the store. 


All I could think about was someone talking to my baby like that. I mean come on! Has no one had a first day? It wasnt the girls fault that her manager took so long coming out!

Some people have no manners or decency. Karma will get her.

If she couldn't do the job on her own, she shouldn't have been on her own.

I'm proud of you.

C'mere. Give me a hug ;)

Seriously though, some people are so damn rude. I'd have told her to shut the fuck up too.
