The Manager Made Her Cry

I can not stand men who belittle women.

I went to Costco today for a few things. I got in line behind a woman my age (30s). She was renewing her membership with the bonus certificate they send you and buying some things. Two jugs of milk, bread, and a doll gift set. I saw the manager come over and begin arguing with her.

Apparently she had the gold membership and wanted to downgrade it. He was arguing with her and trying to sell her on the more expensive option. Not that much more but still more. She flat out said she couldnt afford it.

"Then put the toy back."

I froze. What!?!? Um. She broke into tears. She told him that was all her daughter was getting. "Please stop embarrassing me." I was now pissed. She is crying and upset and he just kept going. I pushed myself forward and touched her shoulder and said "Hi." She looked so lost. Then I nodded and she got it. I told him he was out of line and we needed someone else. He puffed up and stepped closer to intimidate me. I told him to not even try that because I wont tolerate it. I am only 4'10 but I am not meek.

He left and another manager came over, apologized, upgraded her membership, and again apologized. He said the first guy was going to be reprimanded. She left and I cashed out. At the cafe she was waiting to thank me. She laughed and said "He probably thought you were my friend."

"I am." She smiled, we hugged, and I told her I got the same doll for my son. She grinned and nodded then left.

I hate how she was treated. I hate that people pull that crap.

It's nice to see people standing up for other people. It's something that is never done.
