She didn't believe I was a teacher...

I was at Michaels today gathering some stuff for my classroom and they give teacher discounts. I show the lady my staff id and she tells me she doesn't believe I'm a teacher. I've never had issues before so I was a bit taken back. I told her yes I was a teacher and here's my staff id. She told me I was too young to be a teacher. I'm 25. She eventually gave me the discount but she didn't seem happy with it. I'm still a bit shocked.

Wow, if she refused and said that more than once I would have spoken to the manager! Especially after you showed her your staff ID..

That's weird. I have a discount card for Joann's but they mail it to me and I only needed my teacher I'd to activate it the first time I used it.

THat is just odd. They let me use my substitue badge everytime I go, no questions asked. My SIL started teaching at 22, has been teaching for 30 years and about ready to retire!

At least she finally gave you the discount. You could complain to the manager about her bad attitude if you really want. I don't know if it's worth the trouble.

I was a very young looking 25 (and I'm only 4'11") when I worked in a salon as a hairdresser. A client walked in and I politely asked her if I could help her. She sneered at me and asked if there were any adults there that could help her. I assured her that I was actually able to help her but she insisted that she would prefer a "grown up". I just laughed and got my boss, who then scheduled her with me. Snarky bitch ended up with a fabulous cut and color and told all her friends about me.

I'm 26 and still have to wear my ID badge all the time at school for people to know I'm a teacher and not a student. I teach 10-12th. I also have to dress more professional than the coaches.
