I went to WalMart a few minutes ago to get The Avengers. The guy behind me in line was wearing a turban (he was also loudly smacking on a milkshake, but that’s not relevant to the story). As I was walking to the door after buying my glorious Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack (I don’t even have a Blu-Ray player yet), an older, male employee stopped me.
Him: mumble mumble guy with turban
Him: Did you see that guy with the turban?
Me: Yeah? What about it?
Him: I- I thought he was wearing a Halloween costume, heh heh
Me: Actually, It’s a religious artifact. (And you’re an asshole.)
I quickly exited the building after that, but he had a stunned expression on his face. I just wish I had thought to say the part in parenthesis before I walked away from him.
#1, Don’t harass me. You wouldn’t have said anything to me if I were a guy. I only stopped because you are an employee standing by the door as I’m trying to leave.
#2, Don’t harass me by trying to make fun of someone’s religion. I know you’re a racist old fart, but how about you just leave me alone unless you actually have a reason to stop me. Which you don’t because you clearly just watched me purchase my one and only item.
I don’t even know how to end this post. I’m just so irritated. (and annoyed that I couldn’t think of a better term than “artifact”.)
