    A Lack Of Military Intelligence

    | Seattle, WA, USA | Bad Behavior, Employees, Food & Drink

    (I am a female active duty sailor, eating out with my boyfriend. As I order a drink with our meal I give the waitress my military ID to verify my age.)

    Waitress: “Is this a joke?”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Waitress: “Do you think I’m stupid? This can’t be real!”

    Me: “Um, no, it’s real. Why wouldn’t it be?”

    Waitress: “My boyfriend is in the Marines. I know women aren’t allowed to be active duty! This is a fake. You’re probably trying to scam a military discount out of us.”

    Me: “No, women aren’t allowed in spec-ops or on submarines yet, but there’s a f***-ton of us in other jobs. I’m an engineer on a carrier and that is NOT fake. Give it back. I’ll just use my driver’s license.”

    Waitress: “No can do.”

    (She proceeds to whip a massive pair of shears out of her apron and cut my ID in half.)

    Me: “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!”

    (A manager that hears me yell comes over immediately.)

    Manager: “What’s the problem here?

    Me: “Your waitress just cut my military ID in half because, apparently, women can’t serve.”

    Manager: “Oh, my god. I’m very sorry, ma’am. Your meal is on us tonight.” *he glares at the waitress* “My office. Now.”

    (The waitress got chewed out and we got coupons towards another meal on top of free food. Both my boyfriend and my division officer thought the whole thing was hilarious.)

    That’s A Resignation For The Books

    | MA, USA | Bad Behavior, Bosses & Owners

    (For eight years I have worked part-time at a bookstore, despite being injured on the job, because I love books so much. I’m not exactly a people person, though. Our latest store manager has had it in for me ever since she showed up, and I’ve been stressed out of my mind for over two years. I take advantage of the departure of the only remaining good manager to put in my two weeks’ notice.)

    Store Manager: “Hey, [My Name], is this letter for real?”

    Me: “Yes. My last shift will be [date].”

    Store Manager: “And the bit here about ‘taking care of my physical and mental health’ – is that for real, or are you just being dramatic?”

    Me: “You’ve just made my point for me.”

    (I’m a little more broke but a lot more sane now!)

    He Swore It Was On Aisle Three

    | Cordova, TN, USA | Bad Behavior, Employees, Language & Words

    (I am looking for something in the organic section. I am in the store at around 12:15 am. I walk up to a night stocker.)

    Me: “Can you tell me where to find organic coconut oil?”

    Him: “That mother-f***** is going to be on aisle three.”

    (I walked away dumbfounded, headed to aisle three, and finally found it on aisle five.)

    Acting Very Cross(Dressing)

    | England, UK | Bad Behavior, Crazy Requests, Employees

    (I have been clothes shopping with my wife. This is the fourth shop we have been in and I am truly fed up. While she is trying something on [again], I find a seat, and begin to play with my phone. A woman in her late 40s dressed as a teenager approaches me.)

    Employee: *barking an order* “You can’t sit there.”

    (I almost don’t look up as I am not paying attention.)

    Me: “Huh, sorry?”

    Employee: “You. Can’t. Sit. There.”

    (I look around to see if there are any signs, I see nothing.)

    Me: “Why?”

    Employee: *with attitude* “Because this is a changing area, obviously!”

    (The area I am sat in is not enclosed or private in any way. This woman obviously works here and has a problem with me, so I decide to have a little fun.)

    Me: “So, what if I wanted to try something on?”

    Employee: “What?”

    Me: “I don’t see any ‘women only’ signs. What if I wanted to try something on?”

    Employee: “Well, that isn’t going to happen…”

    Me: “Are you telling me what I can and can’t wear?”

    Employee: “What! No, I…” *she gives me a look like a deer in the headlights*

    Me: “So, you are telling me that you personally don’t allow men in your store and you don’t support the trans community?”

    (She starts to look around. I realise she didn’t see my wife go in to the changing room. For all she knew there could have been a guy in there changing as we spoke. People are starting to stare at her.)

    Employee: *turning white* “I, er, I….” *leaves sharply*

    Wife: “You are so embarrassing. I can’t take you anywhere!”

    A Browsing Familiarity With The Law

    | NY, USA | Bad Behavior, Employees

    (My sister and I are tourists, and we are enjoying walking down a street and looking at all the high-end clothing stores, as we don’t have very much of that sort of thing in our town. Most of the store clerks are very polite, as we are clean-cut and relatively well dressed, until we walk into one particular store, and begin to look around.)

    Clerk: *approaching us* “Can I help you with anything?”

    Sister: “Oh, I was just looking at this belt here. The one with the snails on it?”

    Clerk: “Do you mean the belt with the escargot design?”

    Sister: “Yes?”

    Clerk: “Can I help you with anything ELSE?”

    Sister: “No, thank you. We’re just browsing.”

    Clerk: *huffs, and turns away, abruptly* “Well! I suppose that’s LEGAL.”
